Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those who have died serving our country. If you choose to celebrate Monday's holiday with a donation, then consider one of these highly-rated charities:
Fisher House Foundation
National Military Family Association
Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust
Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation
And remember, as we told you in our blog about the FTC's Operation False Charity Sweep, not all military and veterans charities are good investments. Be sure to do your homework when giving to these groups. To help you, we've published a list of charities - some worth funding and some worth avoiding - that support our troops.
