Grant Bergsma joins the podcast to talk about his upcoming ride from the West Coast to the East Coast to raise awareness and money for the Wounded Warrior Project. He leaves LA on November 1st.
On this episode Jim discusses the current controversy surrounding The Wounded Warriors Project and why a charity watchdog has put them on a watch list. Will front-runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump pull off wins in Iowa? Why more and more reports suggest that an indictment of Hillary Clinton is imminent? What city is the atheist capital of America? Facebook stock hits record high as the social media giant rolls out new live video option. Bill Maher and Charlie Sheen highlight a doctor that claims he has a bizarre cure for HIV/AIDS, and a new Craigslist scam rolling out nationwide.
In January 2014, Professional Options hosted a Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) meeting at Poulsbo City Hall so area veterans could learn about how to benefit from WWP. Attendees hear about successes and challenges our veterans and their families face after serving and sacrificing for our country, and how the services provided by WWP allow them to move forward with their "new normal."
WWP provides support and services to post-Sept. 11 veterans such as college scholarships and stipends; cash grants to service providers to cover basic needs like food, rent and utilities; physical and psychological rehabilitation; combat stress recovery; benefits assistance; peer support; and career development and training. In 2012 alone, it spent $114 million to aid wounded veterans, their families and their caregivers.
The meeting was WWP's first time in Kitsap, and a Wounded Warriors in Kitasp (WWIK) group (no affiliation with WWP) was loosely formed and communicates via a Facebook page.
Join us as we talk with regional WWIK advocates and leaders Charles Keating, Todd Best, and Jeremy Creed about what's ahead.

John Roberts from Wounded Warrior Project joins VOW Talk Radio to discuss PTSD.
Warrior Relations Executive Vice President at Wounded Warrior Project, John Roberts served in the US Marine Corps from 1982 to 1996, when he received a medical discharge following a prolonged recovery from wounds suffered in the crash of a helicopter in the seas of Somalia at the beginning of Operation Restore Hope.
In that 1992 crash, John suffered third-degree burns over 80 percent of his body, resulting in the loss of use of his left leg. His right arm was nearly severed; though doctors were able to reattach the arm, John suffers a serious loss of use of this extremity as well. Following military service, John wasted no time in starting a career devoted to his fellow wounded veterans. His first job was with the Disabled American Veterans, working as a national service officer in the organization’s office in Houston, Texas.
On March 29, 2007 – exactly 15 years after the date of his injury – John left the VA to become national service director for Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). He was later promoted to the position of mental health and family support executive vice president and today served as warrior relations executive vice president. In this role, John works with all WWP program staff to ensure the most effective, beneficial warrior experience possible.
We will be talking with John Roberts about life after combat, PTSD and ways to adjust to life after war.

Wounded Warrior Project will NOT promote their charity project to radio shows that support the Second Amendment!!!!!! REALLY??!!
It would appear the Wounded Warrior Project is refusing all donations from those affiliated with the 2nd Amendment. We have something to say and there will be choice words....
Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. ~ George Washington.
Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone. ~ Ayn Rand
Mr. Koby J. Langley from the National Resource Directory is the senior adviser for strategic planning and outreach in the Office of Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy.

Bob Weeks will run across North Carolina, 444 miles from Asheville to Wilmington, in May to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
It will take 20 days, including rest stops in Charlotte and Fayetteville. He’ll leave Asheville on May 8 and arrive in Wilmington on Memorial Day.
An accomplished endurance athlete, Weeks has completed more than 100 marathons - including one in every state and Washington, D.C. He has done it in the past six years, sometimes running two marathons in a weekend.
Bob Weeks owns Russo Construction Inc. and Russo Dumpster Services on 23rd Street in Charlotte. Founder of nonprofit Fix4TheDay, that encourages people to live healthier lifestyles.
John DiCristois on the board of directors of Weeks' nonprofit. He knew Weeks wanted to raise money and awareness for The Wounded Warrior Project (which helps veterans injured in combat) and he suggested Weeks run across North Carolina.
Weeks, 44, has been preparing for the run for months. He sticks to the Paleo diet and practices Thai yoga to improve his flexibility.
DiCristo and Weeks have mapped out a route through the back roads of North Carolina, avoiding major highways. Weeks will run about a marathon a day at a slow pace. Planning everything is very important and it includes having a team that will travel with him, including a cyclist and a van with supplies. Some servicemen will run portions of the 444 miles with Weeks, and he will spend a day in Fort Bragg visiting soldiers. Weeks' marathon friends from across the U.S. will join him for some legs of the run.

“The colonial history, the legacy of enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism, and racial inequality in the US remains a serious challenge as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent. Contemporary police killings and the trauma it creates are reminiscent of the racial terror lynchings in the past. Impunity for state violence has resulted in the current human rights crisis and must be addressed as a matter of urgency.” The United Nations
