VA asked disabled veteran if he owned any guns during a medical appointment.
For a similar offer, veterans from other nations might be willing to join such an effort, much as volunteers went to Spain during their civil war to fight the fascists.
“Veteran Service Organizations like NCOA and others are donating resources to erect a new memorial headstone for this Combat Marine hero, can you help too?”
Around me, 50 million Americans are homeless, living in travel trailers, in tents. 500,000 young veterans, too many with families, have applied for 100% disability compensation. All have supportable medical diagnoses of total disability. Their "paperwork" will remain in limbo for years, until they kill themselves, perhaps their families too. For the best of them, luck, as it has for me, will intercede.
We have receiving a youtube video of people dressed as Marines, the new version, tons of expensive protective gear, urinating on enemy dead. As one who did this work under unimaginably worse circumstnaces, starving, no body armour and outnumbered, against an enemy our new boys might find a bit daunting, I will give the talk that every real Marine gives young Marines.
The day before a young Marine died of a prescription drug overdose at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center last year, his breathing slowed and nurses grew concerned about giving him additional powerful pain relievers, a Navy investigation found.
Now we have NYPD, a police force I have always admired, where I have more than a few friends, playing the "petty thug" for Wall Street. I am ashamed
"... Whatever, praying to the goddess Morphine and adult diapers are your destiny now. "“Newsflash: The radioactive crisis near Fukushima isn’t getting any better.
Sons are treasured. Moms and Dads heap love, affection, money, devotion, property, the perfect girl for them, new cars, education and any conceivable advantage they can provide their sons with. Mom and Dad do not want their sons at war. Most American Moms and Dads however understand the world is not a nice place, that real peace is not attainable and that men must be prepared to defend their loved ones and country. Many Moms have a special mother – son relationship, time honored and very special. I know tough Soldiers - real men that proudly proclaim “Yeah, I’m a moma’s boy, I love my moma!”
Most People are aware that politics is more about oil and dollars – the US sixth fleet doesn’t get repositioned for free or fun- but ignoring the aspirations of the Libyan protesters and turning this noble struggle for freedom into another American Marines operation is going to be another historical blunder foolishly committed by the United States.
Four hundred (400) United States Marines are with a carrier battle group and are immediately available to invade Libya, defeat conventional and irregular Libyan forces, install and interim government, ensure that essential services to the Libyan civilian infrastructure is repaired and reopened, provide assistance to thousands of refugees, reopen diplomatic missions and embassies, restore petroleum production and satisfy the wants, demands, desires, criticism(s) and ranting of local, national and international media. Note a bad days work huh. Jarheads are good – knew all along they were as good as the country expects of them.
This sounded too good to be true because it is. The Marines have been changing their attitude on PTSD and depression so deeply felt...
There is a Middle Eastern country that requires all 18-year-olds to join national service for several years. This country even has a roughly comparable health care system to America for a population of 7,233,701, according to the CIA World Factbook. The country is Israel.
The largest U.S. camp to temporarily house Southeast Asian refugees was at Camp Pendleton, which 50,000 refugees, mostly Vietnamese, passed through. The camp would eventually reshape Southern California. Many refugees stayed for the warm weather they were accustomed to in Vietnam. In central Orange County, refugees found cheap housing and plentiful jobs in Westminster, where they erected Vietnamese businesses along the strawberry and bean fields, drawing Vietnamese scattered in other states.
The Marines known as "America's Battalion" were sent to Afghanistan last year as part of a contingent of 21,000 additional forces President Obama deployed in the administration's strategy to counter the Taliban insurgency. NPR followed the 2nd Battalion, 8th Regiment over the months of their deployment. They have since returned home and are settling into post-combat life.
Veterans Today says support the Marine Dad, Al Snyder Legal Fund against idiots who disrupt Marine and U.S. troop funerals in an outrageous show of disrespect for killed-in-action servicemen and women.
What happened there — and on Guadalcanal and Peleliu and Okinawa — is the subject of The Pacific, a 10-part miniseries that begins on March 14 at 9 on HBO.
