Mental Health & The Armed Forces
Try​ ​BetterHelp:​ http://tryonlinetherapy.com/katimorton Plans​ ​start​ ​at​ ​$35​ ​a​ ​week​ ​(billed​ ​monthly).​ ​Must​ ​be​ ​18+​ ​to​ ​signup. Thank​ ​you​ ​to​ ​BetterHelp​ ​for​ ​sponsoring​ ​this​ ​video​ ​and​ ​for​ ​offering​ ​a​ ​cost​ ​friendly​ ​alternative​ ​to traditional​ ​therapy.​ ​I​ ​hope​ ​you​ ​all​ ​find​ ​this​ ​helpful​ ​and​ ​gives​ ​you​ ​hope​ ​for​ ​finding​ ​the​ ​support​ ​you need​ ​at​ ​a​ ​price​ ​you​ ​can​ ​afford. First, I want to thank each and every member of our armed forces for giving of their times and possibly lives in order to keep us all safe and free. It’s because of their sacrifices that I am able to have this channel and walk around safely in my community. Many soldiers are subjected to traumatizing situations (whether that be in battle or due to an assault by another officer) and left with no help for their debilitating PTSD. The entire mental health system within our armed services is lacking and I would even argue that it’s completely broken. I consulted with 3 different members of the armed forces as well as with a former Navy Sexual Assault Victim Advocate and here is what I found out about their mental health care system: You are encouraged to seek mental health help and support, but if you are diagnosed with PTSD and any of your triggers are associated with the use of weapons you may not be able to ever carry a weapon or possibly do your job ever again. Meaning that by getting help, you could potentially lose your job and ability to serve your country. I say “may” and “potentially” because this all depends on what your job within the armed forces was, which branch you are part of, and where your PTSD comes from. Each branch has different rules and regulations. They do have resources available like the DOD self help line (that everyone is supposed to have on them at all times) and the SHARP representatives (or SAPR, the acronym is dependent on which part of the military you are in) those are the people who you report any rape, assault or harassment to. But as for basic mental health care, you are only psychologically assessed for duty when you are getting your initial background check and security clearance. Also your superior officer can request another be completed if they feel your mental health is deteriorating. http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nmcphc/documents/lguide/command_evaluations.aspx) But if we consider Peter Mims, he was displaying all sorts of signs prior to his breakdown and he got no assistance. He was pushed to his breaking point by his job, and no one even cared to help him. This also goes for those who have been sexually assaulted. The advocate that I spoke with shared that during her time with the Navy 15-20 formal reports of sexual assault were reported each and every month from males and females. This doesn’t account for all of the harassment, and assault that goes unreported. And it is believed that accounts from males are seriously underreported. Article on Peter: https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-navy/2017/12/30/exclusive-how-peter-mims-spent-a-week-hiding-in-a-warships-engine-room/ TREATMENT OPTIONS: https://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/treatment/therapy-med/va-ptsd-treatment-programs.asp Sadly, the waits are long, and worry of getting a diagnosis that will end a career keep people from reporting harmful events, and getting the help that they need. While each VA is going to be different, there just aren’t enough mental health professionals to go around, so waits are long, treatments are short, and many struggle to say how they are really feeling for fear that they will lose their jobs. I don’t have a real answer for this issue, but I think it’s important that we talk about it, make people aware of it, and push for better treatment of our troops. They give their all so that we can be safe, the least we can do is care for them when they finally return home. We as a country give so much money each and every year to the military, I think we should be more specific about how that money is spent. We can do better.

Joshua Kors: How to Uncover a Military Conspiracy
Joshua Kors is an investigative reporter for The Nation, where he covers military and veterans' issues. This speech was recorded on January 19, 2016, in Nashville, TN. Kors delivered the same talk in November 2015 at TEDxVanderbiltUniversity. Additional information about the personality disorder scandal is available at http://joshuakors.com/military. ---------- TRANSCRIPT: JOSHUA KORS: Did you know that since 2001 over 31,000 of our soldiers have been discharged from the military with "personality disorder"? And that discharging our soldiers that way has saved the military over $17.2 billion in disability benefits and long-term medical care? Well, I didn't know that. I didn't know what "personality disorder" was until I started volunteering for a veterans' group in my neighborhood in New York City. My role at the veterans' organization was to tell the stories of soldiers, soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with stories of heroism and courage, tragedy and triumph. Specialist Jonathan Town was going to be the fifth soldier in this series of soldier stories, until he told me something that knocked me flat. He explained how he was wounded by a rocket blast in Iraq, won the Purple Heart for his wounds — and so they discharged him with personality disorder. I said, "Wait, wait, what? Personali— ...." That didn't make any sense to me. I was baffled. And so, I began to dig. And that is how I fell down the rabbit hole of this story, investigating personality disorder discharges for the last nine years. First, we put it on the cover of The Nation magazine. And then Bob Woodruff and I put it on "Nightline." ["Nightline" video clip] BOB WOODRUFF: In Iraq in the fall of 2004, a rocket exploded two feet above Town'shead, knocking him out for several minutes. SPECIALIST JONATHAN TOWN: When I started coming to, I could feel my buddy shaking me and saying, "Town, are you awake? Town, are you okay?" WOODRUFF: The blast left him with significant hearing loss, along with headaches and memory problems. After the attack, Town was awarded a Purple Heart. But when he returned to the States, depressed and tormented by nightmares, the Army acted quickly to discharge him, ruling his problems were caused not by the war but bya personality disorder that predatedhis military career. WOODRUFF [to TOWN]: They basically said that you had a mental problem before you got into the Army. TOWN: Correct. WOODRUFF: Based on ... on what? TOWN: Nothing. WOODRUFF: Did they ever question your parents, your friends, anybody from your past? TOWN: Not at all. WOODRUFF: The military calls it "Separation Because of Personality Disorder," defined in regulations as a "deeply ingrained, maladaptive pattern of behavior." And because it is considered a preexisting condition, Town was left ineligible for disability pay and benefits, and he was forced to return a portion of his reenlistment bonus. TOWN: The day I got discharged they told me I owedthe Army $3,000. WOODRUFF: That you owe them money? TOWN: Correct. WOODRUFF: You get a Purple Heart, got sent back, left the Army, now you owe them money? TOWN: Correct. [End "Nightline" video clip] KORS: Town's voice broke the silence. And soon after his voice went out, "Law and Order" picked up "personality disorder discharges" as an episode in its next season. And then the big guns stepped in: Senator Barack Obama and rockstar Dave Matthews. Obama put forward a bill, S.1817, to halt all personality disorder discharges.Matthews put a petition on his rock band's website asking Congress to investigate these discharges. Within a few days that petition had over 23,000 signatures. Next thing you know, there I was sitting before Congress, and there was Specialist Jonathan Town. After Town told his story to Congress, I heard from voices in the military from all over the country. I spoke with military doctors who talked to me about the pressure on them to purposely misdiagnose wounded soldiers. One told me the story of a soldier who came back with a chunk missing from his leg. His superior pressured him to diagnose that as personality disorder. I also got a flood of emails just like this one: "Personality Disorder Discharge — Please Help!" That letter come before Sergeant Chuck Luther, who served in Iraq and was knocked to the ground by a mortar blast, slammed his head against the concrete, ended up with headaches so severe that they would blot out his vision — literally blinding headaches. When his superiors tried to tell him that his blindness was caused by pre-existing personality disorder, he refused to sign the documents. TRANSCRIPT CONTINUED: http://joshuakors.com/transcript

Mental Health Care Services For Veterans Expands In The U.S.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs said on Wednesday that it intends to expand mental health care to former service members with other-than-honorable (OTH) administrative discharges. As part of the proposal, former OTH service members will be able to seek treatment at a VA emergency department, Vet Center or contact Veterans Crisis Line, the department said in a statement. Veterans who receive do not receive an honorable discharge are not eligible for many Veterans Affairs benefits. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin said suicide prevention was one of the top priorities for him and U.S. President Donald Trump. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/-aSQ5VDgXqs/us-usa-veterans-idUSKBN16G06P http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

I Wish Someone Had told Me MIL-VET Transition
Veterans Tip of the Week – I Wish Someone Had told Me When veterans talk about their service, I often hear something like, “If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.” False! I would have done so much more if I only knew better. I certainly would have managed my transition to civilian life a little better. While In: Plan ahead: Get your exit physical scheduled early, so if there are follow-up appointments, you can go to them while still at the unit and not on terminal leave. Even before that, self-assess. Do you have or suspect you have any medical or mental health issues? If yes, Go Talk To Someone and get it documented in your medical record. This will become the narrative that the VA bases a lot of decisions on, and will affect you later in life. Make a copy of your medical record, even if you have to stand at the copier and make your own copies. You are going to need these records to support and help establish “Service Connection” for any disabilities claimed. Ensure all of your dependents are in DEERS. The number of dependents in DEERS will affect your VA Disability compensation & BAH amount for GI Bill, so stay up to date. If you need to update info, there are admin offices that handle these issues found online. Use Tuition Assistance. This is a great program and dovetails nicely with GI Bill after you get out. This, coupled with leveraging your Joint Service Transcript credits from any military schools, can really help you knock out an Associates or Bachelors degree. Things to Do When You Get Out: Guard Your DD-214. This document is the key to accessing all of your EARNED benefits. Never give the original, make several copies and use the copies as needed. Keep all VA paperwork -every page! Learn Your EARNED benefits. The big 4 are VA Medical, VA Disability, Post 9/11 GI Bill and VA Home Loans. But there are others, and many state benefits, and tax breaks as well. Self Assess. Do you have any lingering medical or mental health issues from you time in service? If yes, you may have a Service Connected issue and earned the right to have it evaluated by the VA. Three paths for submitting a claim – do it yourself (follow the VA process online), go with local or regional Veteran Service Officer (in MA every town has one, in NH they are regional), go with national level Veterans Service Organization like VFW or DAV volunteer. #gogetrated VA Medical. Physical & mental health benefit focused on the veteran, not families, except in specific cases. Military retirees have the option of using TriCare which covers families. Signing up for VA Medical can be done in person at a VA healthcare facility, online here: https://www.vets.gov/health-care/apply/, on the phone at 1-877-222-8387, or the mail. Basic eligibility is 24 mo. service & better than Dishonorable discharge. VA Disability. VA Disability compensates veterans for any service connected issues they suffered as a result of their military service. Establishing “Service Connection” is the critical step in the process. This can be easy if issues are well documented in your medical record. If not, there is a process to establish service connection. The word “disability” is a misnomer. The rating addresses level of impact. Each malady has criteria for each level (0%, 10%, 20%, etc.) of rating. If you meet the criteria, you should be “rated” at that level. (https://www.benefits.va.gov/warms/bookc.asp) The overall rating of x% sets the amount of compensation. With Dependents, compensation is higher (DEERS!). VA Disability is considered allowable income for a VA home loan. Post 9/11 GI Bill. The basic eligibility for the full 100% benefit is 36 months of aggregate active duty. The VA issues a Certificate of Eligibility for the program - give a copy to your school's VA Certifying Official. Benefit covers tuition up to the in-state limit for public institutions. For private institutions above this limit, there is the Yellow Ribbon Program which can cover the difference. There is a $1000 per year book allowance, and housing allowance at the E-5 BAH level for the school’s zip code. Note, this Military Housing Allowance (MHA) is not considered allowable income for VA Home Loans but can be used for any purpose. You have to be in a degree program, & select an accredited, not for profit institution. Tell the school about your Joint Service Transcripts (https://jst.doded.mil/smart/signIn.do). VA Home Loan Benefit. For eligible veterans, the VA will guarantee up to 25% of appraised value (or sale price, whichever is lower) to the lender. This reduces a lender’s risk & allows veterans to qualify for no down payment mortgages. More flexible requirements make it easier for a veteran to qualify. This benefit never expires, can be used more than once, can have more than one VA loan at a time (within limits), and veterans with just a 10% VA disability rating are exempt from the Funding Fee. Yet another reason to #gogetrated.

Pentagon won't clarify transgender troop plan
(29 Mar 2018) The Pentagon is refusing to clarify portions of the Pentagon's recommendation on transgender troops and won't settle confusion about whether service members who have transitioned from one gender to another would be discharged under the proposed plan. Chief spokeswoman Dana White says pending litigation challenging President Donald Trump's order to ban transgender forces prevents her from answering even the most basic questions, including who was on the panel that drafted the recommendations. The memo was approved and signed by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, endorsed by the White House and posted on the Defense Department's website on Friday. It provides unprecedented details on the number of transgender forces serving in the military and how many have sought mental health help or are seeking transition surgery.

American Warrior Radio DoD review Medical discharge Part 2 - 3
http://www.health.mil/About_MHS/Organizations/MHS_Offices_and_Programs/PDBR.aspx DoD Re-evaluating Retirement Determinations for Some Veterans The DoD Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR) is re-evaluating Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) and Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) disability ratings for some Veterans medically separated between September 11, 2001, and December 31, 2009, to ensure a correct disability retirement determination was made. Veterans who received a combined disability rating of 20 percent or less and were not found eligible for retirement can apply to have their MEB/PEB disability rating reviewed for fairness, consistency, and accuracy. Former reserve members with greater than 20 years of total federal military service but fewer than 20 years of active duty, who meet the above criteria, are also eligible to apply. Learn more about the PDBR and how to apply. Questions on the PDBR can be sent to PDBRPA@afncr.af.mil.

VA Sec: Reducing Veteran Suicides is “My Highest Priority”
Every day, 20 veterans take their own lives. The recently appointed Veterans Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin, says that is 20 lives too many and what the VA has found is that 14 out of 20 of those veterans were outside of the VA’s system of care. Shulkin wants to help mitigate that with a new policy of opening mental health care services to veterans who were discharged less than honorably. Shulkin sits down with Soledad O’Brien for a conversation on how to address this crisis.

The real reason American health care is so expensive
Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription.

The Programs Are in Place to Serve Veterans in Retirement - Right on the Money – Part 5 of 5
Sub Headline: Know the Qualifications for Aid & Attendance Pension Benefits Synopsis: There are four criteria for qualifying for the Aid & Attendance benefit: Qualifying military service, medical necessity, care costs compared to monthly income and liquid assets. In order to be considered, the applicant must be 65 or older/or unemployable. Watch the interview with elder law attorney, veterans’ benefit specialist and former president of U.S. Senior Vets, Richard Schulze, MBA. Content: Criteria One: Military Service This benefit is only available to veterans or their surviving spouses who meet the following military service history: An Honorable or General Discharge from a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces (including Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, WACS, WAVES, WAFS). At least 90 days of active duty military service. At least 1 day of the 90 must have been during one of the following periods: Service in the Merchant Marine during World War II counts the same as Naval service, providing there were 90 days at sea. Women in World War II, including nurses, qualify as veterans. Reserves and National Guard are not qualified unless they served 90 days active federal duty with 1 day during a period of conflict. Training does not count as active duty. *For those veterans who served “in country” in Vietnam, the beginning date for qualifying service is 2/28/1961. Criteria Two: Medical Necessity Medical necessity means the applicant has a condition from a medical diagnosis that is creating significant deficits in their ability to perform the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) which include: bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and getting in and out of bed or chair. The ADL deficit makes living alone or unassisted hazardous to their health, safety or well-being. A common question is “What diagnoses are acceptable to the VA?” There really is no right answer to this question. Any medical diagnosis that renders the applicant incapable of self-care with at least two ADL deficiencies is generally acceptable. Common diagnoses that are encountered include: dementia, Parkinson’s, COPD, diabetes, vertigo and hemiplegia. The applicant’s personal physician on a VA Physicians report makes the determination of medical necessity. Three: Care Cost Compared to Monthly Income Monthly income is defined as money available to the applicant on a monthly basis. If the applicant is married, both incomes must be disclosed. Many people believe their income is too great to qualify when often that is not the case. Examples include: Social Security, retirement pensions, annuity payments, military retirement pay, disability payments from the VA, interest and/or dividends from IRA distributions. Cost of care is the cost of qualified monthly medical expenses. The VA does not allow many medical expenses for this determination. Only the following costs may be included: bill from an assisted living community, bill from board and care home, home care agency or private caregiver, insurance premiums for health, vision and dental care, insurance premium for long-term care policy and deductions for Medicare Part B & D. Those are all of the costs currently allowed. Note that medications, co-pays, deductibles and durable medical equipment are not included among the list of qualified expenses to reduce costs if you have supportive rewards. In the case where only the veteran requires assistance, the VA does not allow for a cost-of-living allowance for the stay-at-home spouse, but does take both incomes into consideration and will count the spouse’s medical expenses and any benefit will be paid at the same rate. If the veteran is healthy, but the spouse requires care, then they could qualify under a Basic Pension where the maximum award is $1,360 per month per 2013. Same rules apply as the Non-Service Connected Disability Pension with Aid & Attendance with the difference that the medical eligibility it would be based on the spouse and not the veteran. Once the monthly Income and Cost of Care are determined, the Cost of Care should exceed the Monthly Income by an absolute minimum of 5 percent to receive the maximum benefit. Criteria Four: Liquid Assets Liquid assets are defined as financial instruments that can easily be converted to cash. Examples of liquid assets may include: checking accounts, saving accounts/money markets, IRAs/401ks/Keoghs, CDs, trust funds (with access to principal), mutual funds, stocks and bonds. Richard Schulze contributed content to this press release. Syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews eldercare attorney, veteran benefit specialist Richard Schulze, MBA.

Military Abandonment - A Veteran Speaks Out!
Today the issue of Military Abandonment is the focus of my conversation with a Veteran Marine who completed two tours in Iraq and who has mixed feelings on his treatment upon returning home. He expresses his feelings on the important adjustment period that all veterans need to return back into society but don't always receive because of the lack of support that many don't get from family, community and the military. We welcome all veterans young and old and their family and friends to comment on the discussion as I plan to hold a radio program to give our forgotten veterans to voice their true feelings in any manner they wish. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Jennifer Holliday: Is She Wrong To Perform At Donald Trump's Inauguration? - The LanceScurv Show" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED2WdLBu48Y -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Mental health help for all who serve - Uncle Sam
The military is one of the great stewards of American young adults.As of 2015, about 40% of the total military force — approximately 850,000 men and women — were 25 years of age or younger.In exchange for the risks they take, we expect the military to shepherd young people through the hazards of war and peace, including unforeseen mental illness.Far too often, the military isn’t meeting this obligation to our troops.For civilians and veterans alike, mental illness is a common fact of life.Like any other illness, it doesn’t necessarily happen to everyone.But when it does happen, it’s often treatable.Even without trauma, the fact is that those relatively early years are frequently when many ailments emerge.A large study conducted in 2001-2003 and funded by the National Institute of Mental Health revealed that three-quarters of surveyed psychiatric disorders began before age 24.As of 2015, in the United States, suicide was the second leading cause of death among 15- to 24-year-olds.Since four in 10 of our troops are under 25, one would expect the military to have exemplary treatment on call and an ingrained culture of awareness.But within the ranks, mental health problems are stigmatized, and resources are far too hard to get.Troops distrust mental health care and the professionals who, in some cases, can end their careers by using broad exceptions to privacy protections that civilians take for granted.Malingering — faking an injury — is a crime, and false accusations of it can be used to shame and goad people back into formation.The American public typically only sees the failures of the military mental health system when veterans return home.But the extreme case of Sgt.Bowe Bergdahl is an object lesson in how the military can fail a young person living with mental illness.Bergdahl was 23 years old when left his post.He believed his leadership was dangerous, and he wanted to help his fellow soldiers.Bergdahl devised a plan: He would disappear to draw attention, then reappear to report the officers he felt were unfit.Instead, Bergdahl initiated a tragic chain of events that caused grave injuries to several service members and led to his multi-year imprisonment by the Taliban.At the time, Bergdahl lived with undiagnosed schizotypal personality disorder — a condition that, like other mental illnesses, traditionally arises in late adolescence or early adulthood.Two years prior, he was discharged from the Coast Guard after 26 days for mental health issues.The Army — aware of that history — gave him a waiver to serve.In Afghanistan, Sgt.Gregory S.Leatherman, who supervised Bergdahl, saw signs of mental illness and tried to assist him.In the proceedings that led to Bergdahl’s dishonorable discharge, Leatherman testified Bergdahl was a “great solider,” but, over time, not “adjusting to the deployment like the rest of the guys were.” With courage, Leatherman told an intimidating senior sergeant that he thought that Bergdahl “should chat with somebody, you k

Veterans' Day At St. Anthony Foundation
While some may be attending parades or taking a day off to honor veterans, many veterans themselves will be spending Veterans Day struggling to secure food and housing. From 10:30am-12:30pm, representatives from Swords to Plowshares, the Veterans Health Administration, and St. Anthony Foundation will be reaching out to homeless vets who are in need of support and assistance. In addition to information on programs and services that are available, veterans will also receive rain ponchos, beanies, Kleen Kanteen bottles, and hygiene kits. One of every three homeless men in America has served in the armed forces and every night an estimated 131,000 veterans sleep out on the streets, according to the Veteran Administration. About 25% of those who turn to St. Anthonys Dining Room are veterans who rely on free meals to sustain them. Swords to Plowshares currently serves approximately 1,500 veterans in the Bay Area regardless of length of service, branch, or military discharge status. Last week the VA unveiled their 5-year plan for preventing homelessness among vets. Some of the highlights of the plan include connecting vets to local service providers, more access to permanent and transitional housing, and services to address mental health needs. Next year the department plans to spend $3.2 billion on programs, up from last years budget of $2.8 billion. But all three organizations acknowledge that strong partnerships between government, private, and non-profits will be needed to close the needs gap that veterans face. It is the hope of our three organizations that by working together we can be of service to the veterans that have sacrificed their physical and mental well-being to serve their country. We all see every day how great the need is, noted St. Anthony Foundation Interim Executive Director Linda Pasquinucci. The San Francisco VAMC Downtown Clinic is a comprehensive center for homeless veterans, offering on-site and immediate medical, mental, and social work assistance. www.sanfrancisco.va.gov Swords to Plowshares mission is to heal the wounds, to restore dignity, hope, and self-sufficiency to all veterans in need, and to reduce homelessness and poverty among veterans. www.stp-sf.org. Since 1950 St. Anthony Foundation has addressed root causes of poverty with compassion. St. Anthony Foundations programs offer gateways to escaping poverty by addressing immediate and long term needs. St. Anthony Foundation does not accept any federal, state, or local government money, and is entirely funded by private donations.

There Is Mostly Good News From The VA In June
There Is Mostly Good News From The VA In June Amidst all of the reports from and about the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), most of it in the last ten days is good news. An excellent article entitled, “He Runs VA. He Soothes Trump. He Is: The Most Interesting Doctor In The World”, discusses the challenges Dr. Shullkin has experienced in his new position. As VA Secretary. After all, he is the first in this position with two attributes that are totally different from all of his predecessors: he’s not a veteran but he is an M.D. Many veterans think this is one good way for the VA to get their house in order. And the VA announced last week a “Plan to Dispose Of Or Reuse All Its Vacant Buildings in 24 Months” (either by demolishing or setting for reuse). VA Secretary, Dr. David Shulkin said, “We owe it to the American taxpayer to apply as much of our funding as possible to helping Veterans. “Maintaining vacant buildings, including close to 100 from the Revolutionary War and Civil War, makes no sense and we’re working as quickly as possible to get them out of our inventory.” Then last week, President Trump signed the “Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017”. This bill will now allow Dr. Shulkin more freedom to reprimand or fire VA employees for failing to carry out the duties of their office. This is not automatic since all VA employees have an opportunity for an Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) for a review of their circumstances. Basically, the grievance procedure has been well established for years. Veterans of Foreign Wars National Commander Brian Duffy commented, “Accountability must be a two-way street, and today’s signing now provides VA Secretary Dr. David Shulkin the authority to manage his people in a manner expected of all senior executives, public or private. Weeding out the non-performers and those whose personal conduct brings doubt and dishonor upon thousands of dedicated employees is essential to restoring the full faith of veterans in their VA.” We can only hope that with this new too., Dr. Shulkin will be much more able to get rid of the troublesome personnel who were involved with the VA appointment scandal. But it’s not all good news, depending on your point-of-view. First, Military Times is reporting Veterans with other-than-honorable discharges will be able to access Veterans Affairs emergency rooms for urgent mental health care starting July 5, At first, this idea may dismay many veterans, but Dr. Shulkin had a more important reason for this decision: he was recently quoted saying, “We have 20 veterans a day taking their lives; that’s totally unacceptable.” and “Suicide prevention is my top clinical priority,” Shulkin said in a statement. “We want these former service members to know there is someplace they can turn if they are facing a mental health emergency, whether it means urgent care at a VA emergency department, a Vet Center or through the Veterans Crisis Line.” Actually, saving veterans lives is always a good thing to do. And finally, veterans should register with non-profit Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) to have access to hundreds of free events for them and their families during the remainder of the year. Vet Tix has provided veterans, service members, caregivers and family members of those killed in action with more than three million free tickets to major sports games, concerts, and a diverse mix of other ticketed events Indeed, they list on their website 2, 073, 294 tickets (and counting) they have already distributed. To give you an idea of what’s coming up in July, Task & Purpose lists 21 events occurring in just this month alone. We can only hope good news will continue to occur from and about the VA over the next six months of 2017! In the mean time, have a great and safe July 4th, 2017 long holiday weekend!

Homeless Veterans Turn To St. Anthonys For Help On Veterans Day

UK army veterans could have special ID cards as part of new monitoring plans
Conservative MP for Bournemouth, Tobias Ellwood, said the idea is part of a Government plan to improve information it keeps about ex-military personnel.His comments formed part of his response to defence questions in the Commons from Labour MP for Ogmore, Chris Elmore.Mr Elmore asked ministers what they thought about plans to ask people if they had served in the military as part of the next census.Mr Ellwood said: "I would be delighted to say that I'm very much supportive of this."The more information that we have and understanding who our veterans are, and whether it be through a veterans ID card, or whether it be through, as we're looking at now with the Secretary of State, on changing the driving licence so that there is a symbol on there to show that you're a veteran, or indeed on GP records as well."This is all supportive of the veterans and that's the direction of travel that we should go."Mr Elmore asked the minister: "One of the ways in which the minister can ensure better information is stored is in terms of the national census."The Office for National Statistics said last week that veterans, former armed forces personnel, should be included as a new question on the census."So could he comment on what his response would be to the ONS decision?"Earlier Mr Ellwood had called for an end to "myths" that veterans were more susceptible to things like mental health problems.He said: ”All of this House I think respects and reveres our armed forces. "But we need to bury these myths that somehow if you join the armed forces you'll be more likely to have mental health problems, more likely to have PTSD and more likely to commit suicide than the general population."This is not the case, absolutely not the case. "Mr Ellwood is an army veteran himself, having served in the Royal Green Jackets.He served in Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Kuwait, Germany, Gibraltar and Bosnia. He left the Army at the rank of Captain and is a current Army Reservist.

Trump Tells Americans to “Stand Strong” in Wake of Texas Church Shooting
Trump Breaking News Network - Trump Tells Americans to “Stand Strong” in Wake of Texas Church Shooting. Trump Tells Americans to “Stand Strong” in Wake of Texas Church Shooting Presidet Trump Responds to Texas Shooting BY DAVIS. On Sunday afternoon, America was once again horrified by yet another mass shooting — this time in a church in the small town of Sutherland Springs, Texas. As of Monday morning, there were at least 26 dead, and over a dozen more wounded. In Japan, President Donald Trump addressed the atrocity during a media appearance, The Daily Caller reported. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families in today’s horrible … attack,” Trump said while he was at the U.S. embassy in Japan. “In dark times, and these are dark times, such as these, Americans do what they do best: they pull together,” he added. That’s quite a powerful message, one that is fitting for the time. Rather than jumping into a discussion about gun control like his predecessor, Trump is choosing to grieve with America. “We join hands, we lock arms, and through the tears and through the sadness, we stand strong,” Trump said during his remarks. “All Americans pray to God to help the wounded and the families of the victims,” he added. This latest mass shooting truly was a horror. It is officially the deadliest shooting in a church in modern American history, and is one of the deadliest mass shootings of all time in this country. As of Monday morning, no motive for this shooting had been established, though police had released the identity of the shooter and were combing through every single aspect of his life. This is a national tragedy, one that will undoubtedly shock this nation and lead to some serious discussion about public safety. If Americans can’t even go to church without having to worry about a gunman coming in and killing them, then we as a society have become truly lost. CNN noted that in later remarks Trump stated that this was a “mental health problem” not a “guns situation,” claiming that the shooter was a “very deranged individual.” “This is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event,” he stated. This is the second high-profile mass shooting to occur under President Trump’s administration, and the first national crisis to occur while he is overseas. So far Trump has responded well to this. Hopefully in the days ahead Trump will continue to comfort a nation in mourning even while he is an ocean away.
