Veterans Day 2018: Time to Be Thankful and Take Action!

To the 20 million plus Veterans Out there,  THANK YOU for your service and everything you have done to keep me and my family safe!

 

As a Veteran myself, I would like to take this day to raise awareness of all the Homeless Vets out there.

This two minute video is eye opening.

 

I don’t know about you but when these worthless, lying politicians talk about “Sanctuary Cities” and Medical and Housing Benefits for Illegal Aliens while over 40,000 American Veterans remain homeless, I get pissed off really bad….The system is broke and we need to fix it!

I would urge all of you to email your Congressman and Senators and let them know how you feel on this matter and also contribute your time and money to one of these worthwhile charities that are striving to not only eradicate Veteran Homelessness but also ensure none of these brave men and women “fall through the cracks” of the VA Support and Healthcare System.

 

  • Disabled American Veterans (DAV)Disabled American Veterans (DAV) helps veterans “lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity” by ensuring they and their families “can access the full range of benefits available to them,” according to the organization’s mission statement. In fact, in 2017, DAV helped attain more than $4 billion in new and retroactive benefits to care for veterans, their families and survivors!
  •  The DAV Homeless Veterans Initiative also promotes the development of supportive housing and necessary services to assist homeless veterans in becoming productive, self-sufficient members of society.
  • IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America)Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) was founded by an Iraq veteran in 2004 and is the non-partisan leader in advocacy, public awareness and 1-on-1 case-management support. IAVA has connected more than 1.2 million veterans with resources and community, and provided thousands of veterans of all generations with life-saving and life-changing personalized support from IAVA’s Master’s-level social workers. IAVA’s broader, comprehensive Policy Agenda includes a focus on homelessness, veteran employment, equality, service dogs, a national memorial for their generation and much more.
  • National Coalition for Homeless Veterans: The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans’ (NCHV) mission is to end homelessness among veterans. They do this by acting as the resource and technical assistance center for a national network of community-based service providers and local, state and federal agencies that provide emergency and supportive housing, food, health services, job training and placement assistance, legal aid and case management support for hundreds of thousands of homeless veterans each year.
  • U.S. VetsSince 1993, U.S.VETS has empowered homeless and at-risk veterans to attain their highest level of independence, with specialized assistance to post-9/11 veterans, female veterans and veteran families. U.S.Vets is the nation’s largest nonprofit provider of comprehensive services to homeless and at-risk veterans. With 20 residential sites and 9 service centers in 13 cities across 5 states (AZ, CA, HI, NV, and TX), the district of Columbia and the territory of Guam, U.S. Vets provides vital services such as counseling, job placement, case management, employment assistance and drug and alcohol-free housing.
  • Volunteers of America: At Volunteers of America, we are committed to ending homelessness for those veterans on the street and preventing others from becoming homeless by providing a wide array of well-designed and managed services to meet the specific needs of homeless veterans. Every night, we give veterans emergency shelter and, when they are ready, provide transitional and even permanent housing. Learn more about our services for veterans.

Modified Texas LTC Qualification

 

Not too drastic a change to the COF, but enough of a change to add enough realism and challenge to make the drill respectable.

I agree with the author, if the licensee cannot meet this very standard baseline of skill, something is terribly wrong and they should seek additional training.

Bottom Line folks, if you are going to carry a gun for self-defense, NEVER depend on the State or anybody else to dictate to you what your training should be! Seek it out on your own and be the CAPTAIN of your own ship!
