Kudos To Cartoonists Giving Time To The Wyakin Warrior Foundation

The Wyakin Warrior Foundation is an organization that arranges for wounded veterans to go to school with medical support and care among other transitional services to a sometimes-forgotten group of young men and women. There's a profile of their forthcoming, cartoonists-attended event here. One thing that strip cartoonists do well is benefits related to their cartooning. That's an avenue more easily available to them because of the nature of what they do. Their work is more widely, generally known in a way that lends a special quality to their being on hand. Newspaper cartoonists have long had a special relationship with the military, too, which I imagines helps in terms of people getting involved. Still, that doesn't just happen by itself.
