War experiences!

This movie shows some of the experiences we bring home from the war. These experiences are part of what can bring us to the point of suicide and homicide. The things we are exposed to, and what we have to do at war, de-sensitizes us. Once we take a life in the heat of battle, it becomes easier to take another life or one’s own life. Some warriors feel like there is no forgiveness for all the things they have done in battle or under orders. I’d like for civilians to see this movie to understand the chain of events that can cause a service member to do some of the things we end up doing after we get back.

In times of need

This organization “Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society” main purpose is to be there for sailors and marines in time of need. A lot of time this is while waiting for the VA to process the veteran’s benefits. As we all know the VA benefits process takes way too long. This organization work very good and fast, I know because I got to use them three years ago. The assisted me with money to pay my bills and I didn’t have to pay the money back. That was exactly what I needed at the time.

OIF/OEF, Afghanistan Bonus

Hi

I like to share with OIF/OEF and Afghanistan Ohio resident veterans that you may qualify for Free money (bonus) from Ohio Department of Veterans Services. Whether you are a veteran in need or no if you qualify you can get financial help. I didn’t know about this until I was fired and couldn’t find a job. At that time, it felt good that someone was going to help me. It gets ugly when you are down and out and it seems as if no one cares about you. There is an application you most complete, have it notarized and return with a copy of your DD214. It is a only onetime benefit. I applied for it and received $500.00 for my service.  I encourage all OIF/OEF and Afghanistan veterans to apply. Let them tell you that you don’t qualify that way you don’t have wonder if you do qualify.

Click or copy and paste the link below and complete the application.

Emergency financial help for veterans

marineThe Semper Fi Fund  https://semperfifund.org/

This organization is outstanding when it to helping sailor, marine, soldier, air force, and even coast guard with financial help. I have use them in the pass. Three yeas ago when I lost my last job and I contacted them and they were very helpful. They have a fast qualification process so the red tape is not intense. I think they understand where we are coming from and try to not give us any more stress. This is Free money, we don’t have to pay back nothing. The Semper Fi Fund stand by their mission to expedite financial help to all warriors while we wait on the long VA process. Because life does not stop while the VA process goes on!

Please comment if you have used the Semper Fi Fund.

 

The Mission is…

sailorstanding in the gap left by the Veterans Administration (VA) between compensation and life events. With this blog I want to bring the veteran community together and service those in need, with the primary goal of preventing service members from killing/injuring themselves or others.

This blog was created to help service members of the US military. The intention is to inform the veteran community about FREE services, along with opportunities to serve and participate with organizations helping veterans and non-veterans. Social, religious organizations, and ways to improve the service member quality of life are some the topics I will be blogging about.

I am going to keep the blogs on the positive side so we can accomplish the mission. If you have comments, let’s keep them factual and about the services, and requirements to receive the services, and always speak in a positive way.

Please feel free to share any positive experiences you have had with organizations helping veterans. I would love for this information to be available to every veteran, therefore, please feel free to share this site with every veteran you know. We may not know who is in need of services or support, making it even more important to share with everyone.
