Warrior Talk Radio with GI Jenn & Lance Taylor will be discussion the Confederate Flag issue, the VA Comedy hour (yeah... we are sharing the most outrageous VA stories) and then we will be talking with Carmelo Rodriguez from Veterans Transition.
Jenn and Lance will discuss the recent call for the Confederate Flag to be banned, along with the historical statutes and memorials. We invite those opposed and supporting the ban to discuss. Then we will be sharing some off the wall situations we have experienced. Our listeners are invited to call in and share their stories, as well!
Carmelo Rodriguez works with the Veterans Transition/vetdocseries on FB. He started to film a reality show series about the transition from military life to civilian and all the struggles that's comes with it. He is a veteran who served in the U.S. Army for about 5 years. Carmelo was medically discharged because of an injury sustained while deployed. He served as a Calvary Scout team leader, ending his career on funeral honors detail. He went through similar issues our other veterans have faced, including divorce, alcohol abuse, nightmares, unemployment, and foreclosure.
Carmelo started this reality show series because he wanted our vets to know that they are not alone, as well as, allowing our communities to see and understand what vets are really going through. If done properly, he believes his show will not only bring the problems to light but will also bring a solution to fix them. His over all goal is to bring this show to a mainstream network because we are a huge community and I want the rest of America to see that all of our veterans are not "crazy" or "homeless". Some of our guys just need more help then others. I want to identify who we are, what we are doing and how we are helping each other.

Ruth Moore Act HR 671: The bill would allow a statement by a survivor of military sexual trauma to be considered sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The House approved the bill by voice vote Monday night. Cathy Santos contacted the office of Congresswoman Pingree and shared the following comments as being the only victim of sexual assaults to fight the government and win while service with a 15-6 Pentagon Investigation.
I was concerned about the language here that appears to give sexual assault victims way too much power over their authority. These subordinates while serving, in my interpretation will be able to provide a statement - now, in my experience of 22 years, I know that their are a great deal of women who have been denied the opportunity to tell their stories and to get the remedy they deservied; however, I also believe that the national security is being compromised by the command's ability to lead without these restrictions placed on them by advocates in the civilians world.
How is it possible to lead a command in combat with thiese type who have no real training for war because of the restricitions placed on their leaders.
Sexual assault victims and sexual harassment is a complicated matter and victims die, are murdered in combat. There are no protections for these victims when in combat or other remote environments and the power to use "rape" over their superiors is not to be taken lightly.
Civilians can not protect victims of rape on active duty, it will get worst for them, and no civilian can protect those who are given the power to provide a "statement" that becomes the only evidence required when false accusations are made, and reputations and careers are ruined - this is a poorly worded legislation and the military is not moving forward as a result. I will be following up.
Today is Wednesday, the 29th of July 2015, The last Wednesday of July 2015, Today we have a show on Veterans Benfits with Marilyn Wycher who has news and information on the latest updates that are important on the issue of veterans benefits that affect veterans and their famileis. Marilyn Wyche is a woman who has been studying the VA benefits for years and has been a councilor for veterans who have not been able access or obtain their VA benefits.

According to the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health, “Among the consequences of war, the impact on the mental health of the civilian population is one of the most significant. Studies of the general population show a definite increase in the incidence and prevalence of mental disorders. Women are more affected than men. Other vulnerable groups are children, the elderly and the disabled. Prevalence rates are associated with the degree of trauma, and the availability of physical and emotional support. The use of cultural and religious coping strategies is frequent in developing countries.”
