Ray is a Navy Vet with a condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa (he's in Stage 3 and seriously, you wouldn't wish this on your worst enemy). This has left him disabled and almost immobile and unable to work. Saturday night his van broke down and is not repairable. So, Ray needs a new ride and...

Speeding Ticket So there was this female business executive who was late for a meeting. She is going 65 on a street where the speed limit is 40. A cop pulls her over and says “ma’am, can I please see your license?” She says “I’m sorry, officer, but I got it revoked two years ago for drunk driving.” His brow furrows and he straightens up. “ Well, can I please see the registration of your car?” She says “I stole the car and I killed the driver; he’s in the trunk.” “Ma’am, DON’T MOVE, I’m calling for backup.” He mutters furiously into his walkie-talkie… Five minutes later, half the squad pulls up, the Chief of Police walks over to the woman’s window. “Ma’am, can I see your license?” he asks sternly. “Of course, officer,” she smiles demurely and pulls out a license from her purse. He squints warily at it. “This looks legitimate,” he mumbles. “Can I see the registration to this car?” She pulls it out of the glove compartment and hands it to him. “Ma’am, stand back!” He bangs open the trunk of the car and flinches: but it was completely empty… The woman brandishes a finger at the first cop and says accusingly, “And I’ll bet that liar told you I was speeding too!!” ...

Background: This week the House will debate the Military Construction and Veterans' Affairs Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Appropriations Bill. The bill that passed the Full Appropriations Committee last week ignores the need to fully fund VA by making across-the-board cuts to all accounts and drastically underfunding its medical care, major construction and Information Technology (IT) accounts. All totaled, these cuts will reduce VA’s discretionary budget by more than $1.5 billion below the Administration’s request and $2.6 billion below the Independent Budget request.
Action Needed: We need your help to ensure VA is fully funded so it can provide the care and services veterans have earned and need. Let them know that reducing VA’s budget will have a negative effect on the timeliness and quality of care that veterans will receive. Fully funding VA must be the highest priority for Congress! ...

Former Air America pilot Tony Coalson and Retired Marine Col. Gerry Berry reflect on the last days of the Vietnam War, and the role they played in "Operation Frequent Wind," the largest helicopter evacuation in history.
It's the only call center of its kind in the country, and over the last two years, some 200,000 vets have been helped. As Time Warner Cable News reporter Jamiese Price found out, at the core, it's women helping women.

TRICARE will no longer send beneficiaries certificates of creditable coverage when they lose TRICARE eligibility. These certificates are no longer needed when beneficiaries transition off TRICARE. Beneficiaries will instead receive notice that their TRICARE coverage is ending. With the new Affordabl…
TRICARE users will need to identify themselves and their families on their 2014 tax forms as having healthcare coverage, Defense Department officials said, or risk paying a fine. The Affordable Care Act requires Americans to hold what is known as "minimum essential coverage," for their healthcare, e…
The U.S. is over-burdened militarily and effectively bankrupt financially, but Washington is determined to preserve every base and deployment, no matter how archaic -- such as the many military facilities in Okinawa....
Today’s Veteran of the Day is Rod Johnson, of the U.S. Army's 110th Quartermaster. His World War II service included the Ardennes, Normandy, Central Europe, Northern France and Rhineland campaigns.
In 1944, Rod’s maintenance company originally worked for three months at Normandy Beach, unloading ships from ship to shore. He then followed the U.S. Army across France and later headed to Honnef, Germany, which is where he was on V-E Day on May 7, 1945.
His unit spent a month in Arles, France while they awaited orders, and then boarded the USS Gen. W. F. Hase, bound for the Pacific. However, their orders changed at sea to read "Destination: USA." Imagine the celebration on that ship when those orders came across the wire.
Thank you for your service, Rod!
Today's Veteran of the Day is shared by a father and son. Tony Murphy (right) was in the U.S. Army from 1974-77 and his son Terry Murphy (left) has been in the Army for the past 10 years. During his decade of service, Terry has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thank you both for your service!
