War on Veterans
I want to offer my thoughts on article from the Montebello Comet "The War on Veterans.
Montebello Daily Comet 3-13-14, written by Emily Schwartz Greco and William A Collins
I just wanted to offer my thoughts about this article and the stupidity of taking back and cutting back benefits and promise to US Veterans after they serve in the US Military.
We are a group of disabled Veterans who are active advocates for the rights of veterans who have served in the United States Military and their families. We advocate for the rights of veterans. We talk to the the politicians who want to talk to us and we promote Americanism.

Author Robert Doubek wrote Creating the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, detailing the contention and debate behind the creation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Since its dedication in 1982, the memorial has been one of the most visited monuments, honoring the fallen as a cultural icon. However, there was also a great deal of controversy at the time of its inception, with some dismissing it as "a nihilistic slab of stone." The designer, Maya Lin, was also criticized for her ethnicity, spurring a battle in Congress. Authors Robert Doubek and Susan Clotfelter Jimison of the, book DEAR MARK, a tribute to her hero brother who died in Vietnam and a frequent honored guest at the Vietnam Memorial, discuss the Wall and what is means to veterans and Americans in this exclusive LIVE interivew .

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.

If there is any advice you can share with our audience who may be thinking about joining the military, or even currently serving in the armed forces what advise as Veterans can you share?
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.”
Reach Out America: The Voice of AMerica's Veterans with Jon Wolf and JT Hawk
Memorial Day and Veteran's Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran's Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.
Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters. Dylan Matthew VOX
Today, I will again lift a pint of ale in memory of my three friends and their comrades who died in Vietnam.
I honor them without honoring the aggressive and unjust war in which they fought.I don't know what their motivation was to join the military, maybe it was simply that the draft gave them no choice, but it really doesn't matter. What I do know for sure is that their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Sam Webb
