    in Military

    Proposed Cuts to the VA 2015


    Restrict VA's Individual Unemployability Benefits to Disabled Veterans Who Are Younger Than the Full Retirement Age for Social Security


    More than 3.4 million veterans with medical conditions or injuries that were incurred or worsened during active-duty service are receiving disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).


    Narrow Eligibility for Veterans' Disability Compensation by Excluding Certain Disabilities Unrelated to Military Duties


    Veterans may receive disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for medical conditions or injuries that occurred or worsened during active-duty military service (excluding those resulting from willful misconduct). Disabilities that are deemed to be connected to military service in that sense range widely in severity and type, from the loss of limbs to migraines and treatable hypertension.

    Health Insurance for Developmental Disabilities: Proposed changes

    in Parents

    The ability for families to get services for children with developmental disabilities may increase if a new rule proposed under the Affordable Care Act becomes final.


    In this "Kids News Extra" segment Dr. T reviews the article, "Proposed Rule Mandates Coverage of Habilitation" from the ASHA Leader about proposed mandate to cover habilitative services.


    "Habilitation" is intervention to help a child build skills in which they are delayed or disordered. It's similar to the more familiar term of  "rehabilitation" whereby an individual receives intervention to regain skills that are lost second to an accident, a disease, or the like. 


    The ASHA Leader is a publication of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association which provides information for the public and governs the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.


    This proposed rule goes beyond speech-language and hearing services and regards global developmental issues. We hope it's helpful.

    in Women

    Times have truly changed.  Are men still proposing these days?  Do you still believe in the tradition that a man should propose? If so, why?  Men, let me pose this question to you.  If a female proposed to you would you accept? How would it make you feel? Are you someone that has had a female propose to you? Are you a female that is thinking about proposing to your man? Are you having any opposition from your friends? How do they feel about your decision? We want to hear your thoughts!!!

    MMSRS #28 - What does the MCRMC report of proposed changes mean to you?

    in Military

    The Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission (MCRMC) on Jan. 29 publicly unveiled 15 major recommendations to Congress. Host Dave Etter will field all callers on whether this spells doom and gloom or dances of joy to the military families we struggle daily to keep afloat. Number to call in: (516) 453-9167 and voice your opinions!


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
