Serving in the United States Army from 1995 to 2004, Tiera navigated through the Veterans Compensation Appeals process and after helping a few soldiers that were having issues with the process and the feeling that they could not openly talk about their issues of being gay to another VSA she began Rainbow Veterans Project.

We will ensure that LGBT veterans understand all benefits and entitlements due to them and their families. We will work with VA Medical Centers, Veterans Benefits Administration, Legal Aid organizations, Employment and Training organizations, and all other available resources to serve as the HUB for LGBT veterans and their families. We will also provide social outings and events to maintain and rebuild comradery among Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen in a safe and affirming environment.They model ourselves after successful Veterans' Service Organizations except we will cater to the unique needs of LGBT veterans in a Post-DADT society.
     


    The Rainbow Veteran Project seeks to be recognized and utilized as the premier LGBT Veterans' Service Organization in the country. They want to ensure that we are able to provide all necessary services/resources to any veteran seeking assistance.

    Stovetop Politics with Virginia Kruta

    in Politics Conservative

    Foreign Policy. How it's failing. Why it's failing. (Hint: when Iraq is burning, perhaps you should focus on Iraq. Golfing, blathering about Climate Change, and consulting Iran for help may damage your credibility.)


    Why the primary that ousted House majority leader Eric Cantor is both good and bad for conservatives, and why Democrats are twirling their mustaches and popping popcorn over it.


    After pushing for the repeal of DADT and demanding that soldiers be allowed to march in gay pride parades, the San Fran Gay Pride Parade is denying the National Guard booth space at the event.


    And the best book review in the history of the world. No, it's not about Hillary's book.
