A Tribute to the Armed Services – Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Memorial Day Meaning 

We often tend to forget the true meaning of this day. What is the true meaning of this day? To memorize you:  Memorial Day is reserved for those American Soldiers who laid their lives so that the others may live a peaceful life, this is a special day to pay tribute to the indomitable will, eternal courage and great love for the nation that resonates in their heart.

Often we don’t observe Memorial Day but on this day we should actively remember our family members, our loved ones, our friends, and all of them who have bravely confront the enemies and crushed their nefarious desires while guarding their land with their most precious possessions, their lives.

 

Veteran Loses House to House Jacker

I spoke with a Lady Veteran who struggles with getting her benefits that she has earned.  She has had to find her Veteran son who was kicked out on the street and made homeless by a man who Hijacks houses from unsuspecting Veterans and no one has caught him yet.  She told me this story and I picked my jaw off the floor after I heard it.  There are people taking advantage of our Military Veterans all across American and we can’t stand for it anymore… These people need our help… Please read her story.

My only grandson has a dad that is a disabled Army Veteran, my oldest son. I gave my son my mobile home and went west to Utah. He lost the house and then his car because he has PTSD and physical injuries too and cannot defend himself so he lost the car and house. He delivers Pizza for Mama Mia’s and so I moved 1700 miles to help and now I drive with him on his deliveries four nights a week. We need help getting his car and house back. If just 500 people donated $20 the task would be done. Please help my wounded warrior. Then I need to take him to the VA and appeal their wrongly informed decision to give him only $130 in disability per month. He is in pain as he delivers these wonderful pizzas!!!!

She setup a GoFundMe account asking for donations but hasn’t gotten the response needed.

We are now helping these Veterans earn an income from 2KonnectKares.org and the 2KHeroesScholarship Program.  We are asking that you help us help her and her son. 

Please donate today and we will help them earn the income needed…

How do we treat our female Veterans?

Veterans 2KHeroes Business Scholarship Program

Although accurate numbers are impossible to come by — no one keeps national records on homeless veterans — the VA estimates that 200,00 veterans are homeless on any given night. And approximately twice that many experience homelessness over the course of a year. Conservatively, one out of every three homeless men who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in our cities and rural communities has put on a uniform and served this country. According to the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients (U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and the Urban Institute, 1999), veterans account for 23 percent of all homeless people in America

The Veterans 2KHeroes Foundations believes that teaching our veterans how to fish or by giving them a hand up, will help them long term by providing that missing ingredient which keeps them employed and providing for themselves.

PTSD: 7 Reasons Why Suffering Veterans Aren’t Receiving Proper Help

jschri

1. Lack of Awareness– A portion of the general public are unaware of the disorder and the effect it has on people. The public needs to be further educated on the effects PTSD has on the brain and   the struggles veterans face on a daily basis while living with PTSD.

2. Lack of Desire– About 60 percent of veterans who suffer from PTSD do not seek help. This is due   to a variety of factors such as self-denile, embarrassed, pride, fear of being labeled, and fear of discussing the traumatic situation.

3. VA Hospitals– The VA hospitals are too understaffed to handle the influx of veterans seeking help, therefore leaving many with no where to turn to.

4. Flawed Compensation– The amount of compensation a veteran suffering from PTSD receives is determined by a VA accessor, assessing how impaired they are. They base it off the GAF or Global Assessment…

Suicide Due To Poor Veteran Administration Benefits

Murphy drove to the regional office prepared with a suicide note and a gun. A few minutes before he shot himself, he emailed that note to his siblings. In the email Murphy said, “his arthritis was getting worse,” and he sarcastically“thanked” the VA for not helping him.

The veteran wrote that he, “can no longer afford to pay [his] rent.” Murphy noted he had contacted the New Timespreviously about “homelessness and affordable housing problems in Phoenix.”

The veteran was frustrated…

What Makes a 2KHero?

What is a 2Khero? Or, better, what makes a hero? We all know about the Hollywood heroes … they rush into trouble to save those they love. They risk their lives for others and sometimes lose their own.

Jamie Jarboe  Is self-sacrifice in the face of mortal danger our guide? If so, there are hundreds of thousands of heroes in our military. In fact, just being a soldier, Marine, sailor or in the Air Force would make one a hero. I should add the Coast Guard as well. Maybe that’s the way it should be.
