This episode is dedicated to our new campaign that we're calling Put Up or Shut Up!
To those who say we should be taking care of our own before we help refugees. Now's your chance! Put your money where your mouth is. We're going to share GoFundMe campaigns as well as links to various charities and opportunities to help veterans and the homeless.
We have our own concerns about admitting refugees into this country and we expressed them last week. We just feel that the majority of people claiming that they'd rather help Americans over refugees are full of it, so we're calling them on it. We will not be advocating for either side, we're just calling attention to the causes these people can support if they really feel that way.
Have you seen a Homeless Veteran lately? There are over a million homeless veterans all over the United States. Have you been able to see your family or close friend homeless?
There are various programs out there to help our veterans, so how can you help get them the help?
It is Monday the 4th Monday of November 2015 and we are looking forward to the calls of our veterans as we will be discussing the latest news items that have effected the veterans community today. Like the issue that has been abuzz this past weekend with the Save the Benefit Act Senate Bill 2251 and HR1292 The Disabled Veteran commissary act that are current in the 114th session of congress

We want to hear from you!
First and foremost our officials/the system have decided that the Constitution isn't anything that they should hold sacred at all, but yet each one swore to defend it. Voting has been rigged to the hilt. They vote themselves raises while the majority of our population goes without and hungry. They send our children to war but keep their own here and safe. They refuse to end the fed. They bail out corporations, engage in insider trading, bow down to the 1% and have lost touch with the real world and their constituants. They climb in bed with pharmacutical and other corporations that are purposefully and knowingly doing harm to the human race and they turn a blind eye to it. The list goes on and on.
This week we will talk about medication and how quickly the VA is to give out a pill before addressing the problems.
Suicide, how does medication impact ones mental well-being? Is there a link?
Recently passed in the Senate, under Sec. 101 of Senate Bill 1203, named the 21st Century Veterans Benefits Delivery Act, "Ensure that Veterans receiving medical services under chapter 17 of title 38, United States Code, receive each immunization on the recommended adult immunization schedule at the time such immunization is indicated on that schedule." Over 90 vaccines are listed.
President Obama will use his Veterans Day platform to push Congress for a broad slate of new legislation and reforms, including plans to squeeze for-profit colleges' ability to accept GI Bill benefits.
The commander in chief is also touting progress and reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs at a time when public confidence in the agency is still shaky, and lawmakers’ criticism of operations continues to rise.But White House officials said progress on a number of veterans priorities has been steady and laudable, including a dramatic reduction in the benefits claims backlog in recent years and improved aid for homeless veterans.
On Wednesday, Virginia officials will announce they will be the first state to end veterans homelessness, just a few weeks after Connecticut became the first state to end chronic homelessness within its borders.MilitaryTimes

Come to our audible sleepover On the Edge as we look for solutions and ways we can give a hand out and to make those hands reaching strong enough to hold on.
