Another Great Recommendation

Posted by on in News
"I want to thank you for all you do for us veterans. I really never knew until recently, there were great organizations out there like yours that are willing to help us. The Soldier for Life- Transition Assistance Program, ((SFL-TAP), old ACAP) paints a picture of  doom and gloom for us retirees. They show us some federal programs but not all the private organizations out there like yours. Once again, thank you for your assistance, I look forward to my transition and plan on letting my peers that are exiting, know about the assistance your organization can provide."Joseph SutoMSG, USA Assistant...

In Defense of The Wounded Warrior Project

Posted by on in News
Recently CBS and some other news and media agencies have publicized some areas of concern about how donations to The Wounded Warrior Project, a premier veteran charity, have been spent. The criticism focuses mostly on expenditures on trips, meetings, conventions, hotels and first class airfare. But they failed to say that those expenses were just about 7% of their total revenue. That does not seem unreasonable for a nationwide charity with locations all across America. The Wounded Warrior Project was founded by a dear, old friend of mine, John Melia. He is a humble and honest man. He is my age...

World Economic Update

Posted by on in News
My Fellow Americans,  On the economic front, there are many, many mixed signals. Layoffs are rampant, especially in the oil & gas industry and in metals & mining. Major corporations such as BP (4,000 layoffs), GE (6,500 layoffs) and Walmart (closing 269 stores globally, 154 in the US, 16,000 employee layoffs worldwide, 10,000 in US) and many others are making the news for contracting rather than growing and creating new jobs. Thanks to the EPA bias against coal, the Census Bureau reports that West Virginia is now the only state in the country where more than half of adults are not...

Help! Help! Help! I screamed! The roar of the trucks diesel engine drowned out my cries. I had fallen asleep in a Dumpster and awakened just as it was being emptied into the back of a garbage truck. Totally disoriented, I landed face first in the filthy muck. I spit something vile out my mouth. Before I could gather my wits, I was being propelled forward towards the deadly whining of the trucks compactor. I was about to be crushed to death in back of a stinking garbage truck! Earlier that day, I had donated blood plasma. The donation was my...

A Great Business for Veterans to Own

Posted by on in Biz Ops
I have been helping US veterans find employment and to start businesses for 45 years. Many that I help are service disabled. Some have prosthetics, some have other kinds of injuries; and some have PTSD and find it difficult to work a typical 40-hour a week. I have focused largely on assisting these men and women by creating alternative employment options. One of my options is US Military Maintenance. It is a business for US veterans to own and then to hire other US veterans and their spouses. It is a very lucrative business to have, with an extremely low start-up...

I get inside many companies. Time and time again I see there is a “go to” person in every company. I migrate towards these people and more times than not I find a vet.  Not enough companies have learned the value of a vet. I asked my son-in-law if he put a dollar amount on his military training and his reserve training he said it would be about half a million dollars. What company would turn down a person with such intense training, work ethic and if he is not 15 minutes early to work he’s late. Just like you.  If...

My Dad: A WW II US Veteran

Posted by on in Interesting
 My Dad: A True Artist When Laguna Beach was truly an “artists’ town.” When young and old creatives flocked there instinctually like birds to Capistrano, it was the North Beach of San Francisco, the Greenwich of New York and the North Bank of Paris. My father quit his senior executive job at Northrup Grumman in 1963 and moved our family to this quaint, pubescent town, abandoning his profession as a conceptual artist for the military establishment and devoting himself to producing true art. He had been a star in California high school track in the early 1940s. His nickname was “Breeze”...

2016 time to budget? Free Book

Posted by on in News
It's the time of year everyone considers living on a budget....again. Oh I have been there, it took me several test runs, okay I’ll admit it years to get it right. Eventually I asked for the help of a budget coach and that made all the difference. Since then I have been a volunteer budget coach myself helping others like I was helped. As unemployment rates rose I realized not everyone could have a personal budget coach so I wrote a book with real life stories and I kept it short, who wants a 3" thick book on budgeting anyway!  Even though...

CBS - There was something extra special about one of the pups who graduated from a New York State guide dog school on Saturday. That’s not to say all of the four-legged graduates at Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit that provides guide dogs to people with vision loss and children with autism, aren’t remarkable. But one of them, an energetic two-year-old German Shepherd named Klinger, is about to make history. As far as Guiding Eyes is aware, Klinger is the country’s first guide dog specifically trained to run with a blind athlete. After six months of training—including 200 miles of running practice—Klinger is now ready to...

When Faith was 4, her brother Griffin became fixed on the television news reports from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. His heart went out to the children and he began asking his parents to adopt from Haiti so there would be “one less without a house or a family.” Greg and Robin explained that they couldn’t just go to Haiti and bring home a child, but Griffin’s heart would not be deterred. For his sake, Robin began looking for a way they could help a child in Haiti. That’s when she found Operation Christmas Child. Griffin’s heart was comforted as he...
