October 15, 2014

WASHINGTON — The House and Senate overwhelming passed an emergency funding package in late July to help the Department of Veterans Affairs overcome its nationwide crisis in care and confidence. H.R. 3230, the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, was passed in the House by a vote of 420-5, and in the Senate by 91-3.

With federal midterm elections just weeks away, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States wants America to remember the names of

the eight legislators who voted against disabled veterans:

Reps. Rick Crawford (R-Ark.),
Jack Kingston (R-Ga.),
Walter Jones (R-N.C.),
Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) and Steve Stockman (R-Texas),
Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.),
Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).

Not on the Nov. 4 ballot are Kingston and Stockman, Coburn, because he is stepping down, and Corker, whose six-year term doesn’t expire until 2018.

The hypocrisy of the “no” votes, according to VFW National Commander John W. Stroud, is that between 2003 and 2010, five of them voted to approve more than a half trillion dollars in supplemental war funding with little regard to corresponding offsets or spending oversight, yet in July they would vote against $16 billion to improve the care and services the VA provides to wounded, ill and injured veterans. The three not in office at the time of those war funding votes are Crawford, Sanford and Stockman. Sanford, however, was the governor of South Carolina from 2003-2011, a state that experienced tremendous active, Guard and Reserve deployments, as well as combat casualties.

“By voting no, those eight members failed to stand with America’s wounded, ill and injured veterans,” said Stroud, a retired Air Force first sergeant from Hawthorne, Nev. “Failing to support America’s veterans is inexcusable, and I hope every voting constituent in every home district and state remembers that, because the VFW will do our best to remind them,” he said.

“The VFW has a long memory when it comes to remembering those who vote for war but not the warrior, and though we will never tell our members and supporters who to vote for, we will always tell them who in Congress does — or does not — support veterans, service members and their families.”

The 13 members of

the House and Senate who were not present to vote on H.R. 3230

— for reasons their constituents should ask — are:
Reps. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.),
Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.),
Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.),
Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii),
Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.),
Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and Albio Sires (D-N.J.),
Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.),
Thad Cochran (R-Miss.),
Kay Hagan (D-N.C.),
Tom Harkin (D-Iowa),
Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii).

Along with Kingston and Stockman, Hanabusa will not be on the November ballot, nor will Senator Harkin. The three representatives lost their Senate primary challenges, and Harkin is retiring after serving five terms in office.

5 Key Implications if Baghdad Falls to ISIS

Turkey Bombs Anti-ISIS Kurds Inside Its Own Borders

Turkey is bombing rebellious Kurds inside its own borders in a conflict over the country's refusal to let Kurdish fighters travel to Syria to fight ISIS, reports say. From Reuters ("PKK" is the Kurdistan Workers' Party):
Hurriyet newspaper's website said Turkish warplanes had hit PKK targets in Turkey on Sunday, the first such strikes since a peace process began in Turkey two years ago. The strikes were also reported by media sympathetic to the PKK.

ISIS Attacks on Syrian Kurds Create 100,000 Refugees in Two Days

An onslaught of ISIS attacks in recent days has suddenly pushed more than 130,000 Syrian Kurdish refugees into Turkey—which has already taken in more than a million Syrians in the three years since the country began its descent into civil war.

Tech jobs: Minorities have degrees, but don't get hired

SAN FRANCISCO – Top universities turn out black and Hispanic computer science and computer engineering graduates at twice the rate that leading technology companies hire them, a USA TODAY analysis shows.
Technology companies blame the pool of job applicants for the severe shortage of blacks and Hispanics in Silicon Valley.
But these findings show that claim "does not hold water," said Darrick Hamilton, professor of economics and urban policy at The New School in New York.

Tech: Where the women and minorities aren't

SAN FRANCISCO — Silicon Valley. It's where the women, and the minorities, aren't.
Hit any tech event from South of Market to Santa Clara, and you see the same cast of characters. Scores of young white men in T-shirts and hoodies. A fair number of Asians and south Asians. A few Hispanics. Rarely blacks. And a smattering of women.

We Did Not Loose The War In Vietnam Like Everyone Keeps Telling Us!

Richard Nixon-Address to the Nation on an Agreement to End the War in Vietnam (January 23, 1973)

The Truth about the Vietnam War

Published on Jun 23, 2014
Did the United States win or lose the Vietnam War? We are taught that it was a resounding loss for America, one that proves that intervening in the affairs of other nations is usually misguided. The truth is that our military won the war, but our politicians lost it. The Communists in North Vietnam actually signed a peace treaty, effectively surrendering. But the U.S. Congress didn't hold up its end of the bargain. In just five minutes, learn the truth about who really lost the Vietnam War.

Interesting Vietnam & other military statistical information

In case you haven't been paying attention these past few decades after you returned from Vietnam , the clock has been ticking.

The following are some statistics that are at once depressing yet in a larger sense should give you a huge sense of pride.

"Of the 2,709,918 Americans who served in Vietnam , Less than 850,000 are estimated to be alive today, with the youngest American Vietnam veteran's age approximated to be 54 years old."
How does it feel to be among the last third of all the Vietnam Veterans who served in Vietnam to be alive?

I don't know about you guys, but it kind of gives me the chills.

Considering the kind of information available about the death rate of WWII and Korean War Veterans, publicized information indicates that in the last 14 years Vietnam veterans are dying at the rate of 390 deaths each day.

At this rate there will be only a few of us alive in 2015.

These statistics were taken from a variety of sources to include: The VFW Magazine, the Public Information Office, and the HQ CP Forward Observer.

What is a career?
While many people use the words “job” and “career” interchangeably, the two have very different meanings.
Throughout your life, you may hold various jobs starting, perhaps starting when you are in high school or earlier. Typically, people pursue just one career.
A career is a journey, and something you will be committed to in the long term.
It consists of different steps and, ideally, it is something that you feel is your calling.
If you are a student ready to begin your higher education, or have held many different jobs and want to know how to make the switch to doing what you love, this career guide will be a great resource.



The unemployment news and headlines stand as daily reminders of one of the economy’s greatest challenge.
And yet one group of Americans are unemployed today at a rate three times that of the national average.
Who are they? Ex-cons? High School Dropouts? Heroin Addicts?
Guess again – they are men and women, honorably discharged, from The US Armed Forces.

1985: DCTV returns to the war-torn land to locate many of the subjects they filmed eight years before, just after the fall of Saigon. The resulting film, Vietnam: Talking to the People, offers a penetrating view of a country deeply embedded in the American consciousness, and the picture that emerges is one of determination, hardship, humor and resiliency.

From a look at Vietnam's failing birth control program to a journey through the Mekong Delta, from drunken weddings to slow-moving funerals, from pepper pickers to orphans, the film traverses the vast landscape of Vietnam. Highlights include the first entry into an operational Vietnamese prison camp, sealed off from foreign observers for 10 years, as well as an examination of the Orderly Departure Program, in which American officials interview and process the applications of thousands of Vietnamese awaiting visas to the U.S.

Veterans' Research

Birth Defect Research for Children has worked with Vietnam veterans’ families since 1986 when the first Agent Orange Class Assistance Programs were funded. Although BDRC did not have AOCAP funding, we worked with the University of South Carolina in case work that involved counseling with veterans’ families and creating a series of fact sheets on the disabilities they were reporting in their children. During this time BDRC also began the first initiative to set up the National Birth Defect Registry, partly to collect the information being reported by the veterans.
