Veterans Health Care Improvement Act
This week I write about the important new 'Health Care Improvement Act
of 2007' and Veterans Outreach. I applaud this action, working toward
solving a true crisis for those returning from multiple tours in the Middle
Programs for Veterans
The programs now established to enhance income for Combat Veterans and
those that are Retired Military are listed here for your review. Those
Veterans having disabilities which resulted from Military Service should
review these programs, very little has been done to promote these programs
in the public domain.
Tragic Neglect of US Veterans
The Department of Veterans Affairs is now facing criticism by the general
public and lawsuits generated by families outraged by Veterans' lack of
treatment as evidenced at Walter Reed Naval Hospital just two months ago.
Vets Dissatisfied with Disability Pay
The Presidential Press Conference, with T.V. cameras recording, caught
Bush's over the shoulder remark to a Veteran of Iraq, who was sitting
in a wheelchair without his legs. "We are going to get you some new
legs," the President remarked as he scurried past to some new appointment.
- July 4th, 2007
My first visit to the Memorial was in recognition of the sacrifices of
my fellow Marines who gave their lives fighting the Viet Nam War. The
names of men on this Wall mean as much to me as family since they are
the reason I have my life, and the reason that I am here to write these
articles for the surviving Veterans of America's military.
Question: Why No Health Care?
Since January 2003, nearly 400,000 veterans have been denied enrollment
in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health system because they
have no service-connected disabilities and have incomes that exceed a
VA means test, the same one used to screen for federal housing assistance.
- a Confusing Jumble of Legal Speak
Last week I received a call from a client that had broken her shoulder,
and as a wife/caregiver of a housebound Veteran, she was very concerned
about additional expenses that will now occur due to her shoulder injury.
Can she expect any help financially from V.A.?
to Agent Orange? Risk Grows After Surgery
The Hard Truth about Veterans exposed to Agent Orange is they have a 48
percent increased risk of prostate cancer recurrence following surgery
than their unexposed peers, and when the disease comes back, it seems
more aggressive, researchers say.
and a War
I arrived at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio hoping to find a room
available from base lodging as a space "A" category retired
Marine. I have made this trip to the USA many times.
Day - Did You Remember?
Did you remember to give a moment of silence and show respect for the
Veterans who have died on this Memorial Day? Understanding they sacrificed
their lives on the principles instilled in them by living in America?
and Views from the Disaster Zone
The interest in my last article has been encouraging from all those Veterans,
North Americans and Canadians that are making their homes in Puerto Vallarta.
Many property owners, both National and International, are now under assault
from developers as they blindly overbuild and over extending the capacity
of the City utilities.
in Puerto Vallarta
BOMBS AWAY! They have blown apart the jungle and homes on Amapas mountain!
As I focus in with my telephoto lens from above, just out my back door,
looking down on the fallen condos, I wonder, are we next?
Hoax, Less is More
One of the best rewards of being in Mexico is the freedom from the pressures
of daily life. The hub-bub of American life is not getting easier amidst
the chaos and the hectic pace of de-stabilization in the middle class.
