Do you have plans for Veterans' Day?

Shares

I don't know if we can do enough for returning veterans and their families, but we can try to get the word out.

The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America are doing the heavy lifting.

This is a week for veterans, and if you want to see what you can do, check out iava.org/veteransweek2008.

Over 200 events have been posted already, and more are coming in every day. So far on the list, there's a parade in San Diego, CA, an 8K run in Juneau, AK, and a "Vets Day Dance" in Davenport, IA, to name just a few.

I'll be at the IAVA gala Wednesday night.

Here are the top 10 issues that we feel the Obama administration should address.

1. Ensure Thorough, Professional, and Confidential Mental Health Screening
2. Advance-Fund VA Health Care
3. Overhaul the Military and Veterans’ Disability System
4. Cut the Claims Backlog in Half
5. End the Passive VA System
6. Combat the Shortage of Mental Health Professionals
7. Create Tax Incentives for Patriotic Employers
8. Fight Homelessness among Veterans
9. Give Families Access to Mental Health Support
10. Repeal the Waiver of High-Deployment Pay

Do you have plans for Veterans' Day?
Why yes! I'm going to go to work and continue providing excellent service to my employer – service whose basics I learned in the Marine twenty years ago.
Semper Fi.

Reading some of the reviews here,[url=http://www.mmocode.comwow cd key[/url] I can't help but think that [url=http://www.mmocode.comaion cd key[/url]they did NOT read the app description [url=http://www.mmocode.comwow time card[/url]at all. This is not an everything in the[url=http://www.mmocode.comeve time cards[/url] Philippines app, its an Enjoy Philippines app.[url=http://www.mmocode.comaion time card[/url] So the POIs are of course limited only to the establishments[url=http://www.mmocode.comxbox 360 live points[/url] in the Enjoy program.

Throw a Veterans Day party this year to honor those who have fought for your freedom, and your guests will never forget.
