Heroes in action was established in NW Ohio to aid local veterans and active military deployed overseas from NW Ohio. Heroes in action is an all volunteer organization and is dedicated to helping our own by assisting disabled veterans and their families with the necessities they need to regain stability and carry on normal lives. Heroes in action carries on another vital mission on a monthly basis and that is to send care packages to local active military members deployed overseas. As a veteran of two wars, I can tell you personally how nice it is to know that you are being thought of back home and how nice it is to get a care package to boost your morale.  There are no high paid executives at Heroes in action so your donations go right to the need of the people they serve.  To see how you can help in addition to our show, go to the link above.
