VETERANS AND THE WORKPLACE

Posted by on in News
The workplace can be an extremely frustrating place for most veterans, it has most of the things that we tend to veer away from. Workplaces have a decent amount of people from the employees to the customers, most are loud and every workplace has some type of conflict going on at one point or another. What you have to remember at this point is that you must always remain in control and it is truly important to think before you speak. This is especially true if you feel yourself starting to get angry in a professional environment, remember that you...

Posted by on in News
This is the first part of a five part miniseries focusing on the process known as reintegration for our nation’s services members. Over the next few weeks I will talk about the five parts of reintegration that I have titled: The Starting Line, Finding Your Pace, Hitting Your Stride, Hitting the Wall (The Stigma) and the Finish Line.

Last night I was on the phone with Mark and Tori discussing ideas for new topics to help me move forward with this blog. Mark observed that no one has given a service member’s perspective on the loss of Fallujah. The general population isn’t aware of the sacrifices US troops made to take Fallujah, whether it be loss of eye sight, limbs, or the ultimate sacrifice. If you were to ask what exactly we lost in Fallujah and why you should care, I would tell you this; we lost 4,500 of some of the best, most courageous men and women...

Misinformed media is largely responsible for reinforcing within the national conscience the theory that combat-exposure and PTSD are not only indelibly linked but that the one necessitates the other. Evidence abounds to the contrary.    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society comments on Swank & Marchand's 1946 illustration that after 60 days of sustained combat, 98% of combat personnel are psychiatric casualties. While the term "psychiatric casualties" those who experience mental exhaustion related to war that renders them unfit to continue combat duty, the condition is both natural and temporal (in most...

This is the crisis US veterans are facing. And here is the solution too.    We have 700,000 unemployed 9/11 veterans today. Next year we are pushing out 1.3 million active duty US military personnel.
