Yesterday I was talking with my friend about mountain climbing.
We’re new to the sport, and completely no experience when it came to knowing where to go, what to do and how to do it.
Case in point, we needed someone to help us or guide.
A guide who could show us the musts about mountain climbing, and give us some tips to help us turn the amusement into something we could be passionate about.
So we asked for help from a good friend of ours(someone who actually climbs some of the most challenging mountains around), and he pointed us to a guide he wrote for a mountain climbing enthusiast website.
The guide was very nice, and included all sorts of information about gears, do’s and don’ts, the best mountains for climbing in each state, techniques and more.
So when it comes to the life of a Veteran, what helpful resources are out there for you?
There are only some news websites focused towards military personnel and Veterans, and forums for discussing current events and politics.
Not much else.
So I decided to create my own, and post it here for everyone to use and share.
Google+ Pages To Add To Your Circles
Google+ says there are 300 million monthly active users on the platform, and with the Communities feature, there are plenty of circles to get involved with.
Twitter Accounts To Follow
With 288 million monthly active users, Twitter is another large and popular social network. The company says 500 million Tweets are sent each day, so the opportunity for Veterans to network with others is a big draw.
Facebook Pages To Follow
Facebook is a social network launched in 2004, and has quickly grown to an average of 890 million daily active users as of December 2014. If you’re a Veteran, Facebook is a great way to network with other military members and Veterans in the community.
YouTube Channels For Veterans
Youtube has more than 1 billion, and the company says 300 hours of videos are uploaded every minute. Check out the helpful Veterans and retirement videos.
Pinterest Boards To Follow
Another large social network is Pinterest, with 70 million users as of July 2013. Not only will you find inspirational pins, but links to articles of general interest to Veterans and their families.
Helpful Blog Posts For Veterans
Blog posts are great for education, entertainment and information, and a lot of modern blogs are created to genuinely help people with their questions.
