This takes some time to load and it runs for about 10 minutes, but it is well worth it.
 
Given the trashing that the US Soldier Warrior takes from some, all need to better understand that Warrior.  You can not win any war without boots on the ground.  My God I am grateful that I come from this lot and I have put boots on the ground.
 
God bless our Warriors and may they be safe as they continue to put boots on the ground.

America Supports You: States Honor Wounded With Silver Star Banner

America Supports You: States Honor Wounded With Silver Star Banner
By Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Feb 20, 2008: More than 60 years after the custom was last
observed, 5 states have endorsed the Silver Star banner as their
official symbol for honoring war-wounded veterans.
The practice began in 1918, and the Silver Star banner was granted
semi-official status by the Army adjutant general, said Steve Newton,
founder of Silver Star Families of America. Sometime between the end of
WW I and the beginning of WW II, he said, the practice was lost.
Silver Star Families of America has been working to get the banner
granted official status since 2005, Newton said. "When Congress approved
the Blue Star and the Gold Star (as official service banners), it did
not designate a Silver Star banner," Newton said.
Blue Star banners designate families with a member serving in the
military, while a Gold Star banner honors a family member who was killed
in action.
The efforts of Newton's group to work with Congress to get the Silver
Star banner designated nationally as an official service banner led to
some stalling points, however. Congress wanted the Silver Star Families
of America to narrow its definition of wounded, Newton said.
"We decided to ... go state by state, because we didn't want to leave
out post-traumatic stress (disorder) or Agent Orange or Gulf War
Syndrome or accidents that occur in the war zone that will affect
somebody for the rest of their lives," Newton said. "We thought that
they needed to be honored also."
In 2007, the group presented each state with a proclamation to endorse
the Silver Star banner as its official service banner to honor war
wounded. 5 states to date - Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Indiana and
Missouri - have done so.
"To me it's a sign of honor," Newton said. "When a state takes an action
like this, it means that they want to remember the sacrifices of the
wounded."
Janie Orman, the group's president, said that while the 5 states agreed
quickly and others are on the brink of declaring the Silver Star banner
their official service banner for the wounded, some declined.
"A couple of them said, 'No, thank you,'" she said. "A couple of them
felt like they had their own programs, I believe."
In 2007, 44 states honored their war wounded by proclaiming May 1 as
"Silver Star Day for the Wounded," with at least 2 of those states
working to make the proclamation permanent, Orman said. Silver Star
Families of America hopes at least that many states will endorse the
Silver Star banner, she added.
The Missouri based group is a supporter of America Support You, a
Defense Department program connecting citizens and companies with
servicemembers and their families serving at home and abroad.

 Do you think U.S. Veterans should be more visible?  We do!
  The Public should know the Veterans in their communities.
One VFW Post Commander said, "A great way to show who did what for our country."
Republished with permission of the New Hampshire Union Leader
  Our small group of retired Veterans makes over 30 special Veterans Recognition magnetic vehicle plaques and metalized film window stickers.   We call them VetSignias.  The Black on Bright Silver badges are being used by tens-of-thousands of Veterans.  They send the message, "I did it when it had to be done and I'm proud of it."
All VetSignias can be viewed at  http://www.vetsignia.org 
There are Request Forms at the web-site listing all VetSignias, showing costs, and how to get them. 
    The VetSignia effort was nicely described when a newspaper wrote ... "One group of retired veterans decided it was high time people should be made aware of the veterans in their communities."  Another article began ... "A group of public-spirited veterans have devised a way to celebrate Veterans Day all year long in style."  A for-profit business could not make this wide assortment of distinctive Veterans' ID plaques and stickers.
    If you served in   WWII - KOREA - VIETNAM - PERSIAN GULF - OVERSEAS EXPEDITIONARY CAMPAIGNS - PEACETIME  in the  ARMY - NAVY - MARINESAIR FORCE - COAST GUARD - MERCHANT MARINE  there are VetSignias, Window Stickers and Magnetic Plaques, that show your service.   
    Veterans who served in wartime can display the war served in and the branch of service.
            Example;  VET / KOREA / U.S. ARMY, or, VET / VIETNAM / U.S. MARINES.
    VetSignias for those who served in Expeditionary Campaigns such as; Panama, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc., show Branch of Service and Expeditionary. 
            Example; VET / U.S. ARMY / EXPEDITIONARY, or VET / U.S. AIR FORCE / EXPEDITIONARY.
    Veterans who served in Peacetime can get VetSignias that show Vet and their Branch of Service.
            Example; VET / U.S. NAVY, or  VET / U.S. COAST GUARD.
WE MAKE SPECIAL COST ARRANGEMENTS FOR VETERANS GROUPS - REUNIONS, FUNDRAISERS,ETC.

DOUBLE TAP AWARD FOR WAR POETRY
GUIDELINES

The "Double Tap" Award for War Poetry is awarded in recognition of excellence and quality of war-related writings of any style. The work for which the award is approved must be War related, i.e. about war, its participants, incidents or consequences.

Nominations for this award may be made by current members of the IWVPA Club and must be seconded by another member. The Award is NOT available by application.

Once nominations are seconded, they are to be forwarded to the IWVPA Award Master through the IWVPA Club and must include the URL (web page address) on which the nominated writing appears, AND the email address of the person whose work is nominated. Recipients of the Award are not required to be members of the IWVPA club, and writings by any person may be considered providing that the writing falls within the bounds of the definition of a "War Poem" as defined above.

It should not be taken for granted that any award will be automatically approved; the final decision being that of the AWARD MASTER. Where there is any indecision, the WEBMASTER will be consulted for his views to help determine the final action.

Award citations will be actioned and forwarded to at the discretion of the Award Master and there are no limits to the number of awards that can be made in any month.

The author of the winning work will be notified and presented with the Award and, if the poem published on a website other than IWVPA, the recipient will be asked to attach it to the page containing the winning work with a link back to the IWVPA "Double Tap" Award Honour Roll, however, failure or refusal to link back to IWVPA will NOT negate the award.

If not already included on the IWVPA website, and if requested by the winning author, the award winning writing will be added to the IWVPA Web Site under the index page of the author and will be linked to the award index.

GI-JANES is an organization formed by a group of Active Duty and Retired Military Women who serve/served this Country in the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard and who have been victimized by a law that discriminates ONLY against American Citizens who volunteer to serve and defend this country in uniform. 

 

 

The primary objective of GI-JANES is the repeal of the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act (USFSPA).  Until this is accomplished, a secondary objective is to compel the Department of Defense and the military services to fully brief all personnel about the USFSPA and the effect it will have on military members should they ever experience a divorce after being married while in the service.  This should occur upon entry into the Services and should re-occur during annual training each year thereafter.   

 

This group of volunteer females from all branches of Military Service pledge to actively engage in obtaining these objectives.  Although initiated by and for the female contingency of military veterans adversely affected by the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act (USFSPA), the newly formed GI-JANES commits to represent all US veterans and active duty military personnel.

 I keep getting asked for DVD copies of my videos. These four seem to be the ones requested the most. Up until now, I have not been able to afford to get them out. I hope with your help I can. The goal here is simple. I want to provide every unit, every base, every service organization, every veteran's clinic and all veterans with a copy of this DVD for free. To do this, it is financially impossible for me to do this on my own. If you think these videos are important then please support getting them to those who need to see them.

Send check or money order to

Australian Vietnam Veterans Study
This 1997 study of 50,000 Australian Viet Nam veterans entitled "Mortality of
Vietnam Veterans: The Veteran Cohort Study" found that the death rate among
veterans between 1980 and 1994 was some seven percent higher than for the
overall male population. In addition, the study found that the death rate from
cancer was about 20 percent above average, and that veterans may face an
increased risk of death by suicide. The Australian government received this
information seriously since it has been documented that those individuals who
were in Viet Nam had successfully passed rigid medical examinations and were
therefore considered
"healthy"; those with congenital medical issues were rejected as conscripts.
The report is available from:
Commonwealth Department of Veterans' Affairs
PO Box 21
Canberra, ACT 2601
