Vets 4 Vets of Northeast Wisconsin is looking for veterans who might need their holidays brightened in the group’s annual Christmas “Break-In” program.

The holidays can be difficult, either financially or emotionally, for veterans — especially those suffering from depression, readjustment disorders or PTSD. Anyone who knows of a veteran – individual or with a family – who might be experiencing hard times and could use some help this holiday season can nominate them for the program.

A “break-in” is a planned surprise for the veteran and his or her family, usually done at their home while he or she is away. The nonprofit works with the person who nominated the veteran ahead of time to determine how to best serve each individual situation. Although the organization does its best to serve the needs of the community, not all veterans who are nominated will be selected to be a part of this year’s program.

Vets 4 Vets of NE WI is a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization made up of veterans and non-veterans. It aims to support veterans in Northeast Wisconsin through Operation Break 22, Old Glory Honor Flight and various other support agencies.

To nominate a veteran for this year’s Christmas “Break-In” program, email or write Vets 4 Vets of NE WI P.O. Box 135 Suring, WI 54174.
