I get donation requests from a group called "Disabled American Veterans" out of Cincinnati, OH.

I have sent them a few bucks over the years, and they send me some nice return address sticky labels.

There are lots non-profits out there---some good and some not.

Does anybody know if this is a good organization or not?

They seem to have a good rating here:
