Have a Heart: Support women veterans

When Petty Officer Nicole Prince, 24, returned from Iraq in January 2004, she soon found herself out on the street-- homeless. With her young son Nijay, they moved from shelter to shelter, seeking help from the VA, private organizations, as well as from Homeless Services in New York City. She presently lives in a shelter in Brooklyn.

While unreported in the media, we have heard heart-breaking stories of women veterans who are homeless, coping with debilitating physical injuries, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorders, and struggling to provide for their most basic needs.

Female veterans returning from the battlefields of an illegal, immoral war need more than Yellow Ribbons: they need tangible support.

This Valentines day, open your heart and take a moment to look at the cost of war to women - women who joined the service to get money for education, mothers and wives grieving over the loss of their loved ones, Iraqi women imprisoned by occupying forces, and the women of Iraq themselves. To read their heartfelt and inspiring stories, click here:

In an effort to show these women that we care, here are three things you can do today to support them:

Send a Valentine to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi asking her to have a heart, end the killing and bring the troops home. Care2.com has created a beautiful and specially worded Valentine for Congresswoman Pelosi and anyone else you feel needs a heart. //www.care2.com/ecards/build/1/6013
(email Congresswoman Pelosi at sf.nancy@mail.house.gov )

Send a Valentine to Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey and thank her for her leadership in working to end the occupation or to anyone else that has been standing in vigils, hanging banners or working to end the occupation.

(email Congresswoman Woolsey at lynn.woolsey@mail.house.gov )

Send your love to the female vets of the Iraq War by making a financial contribution through CODEPINK to the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans. We will be collecting donations to serve their most immediate needs.

Thank you for your heart,

Andrea, Carol, Claire, Dana, Gael, Jodie, Medea, Tiffany
