Recognition * Respect * Responsibility * Rewards

Here’s the thing:

Unemployed Veterans need to retire from their present circumstances. They need to change.

Our Veterans deserve the gift to time to work while they recharge their energy, find a way to live a purposeful life worthy of their character and experiences.

They need livable incomes earned working jobs with new hands-on experiences, which create future opportunities.

They need the peace of mind that cash flow can deliver: an attractive place to live, nutritious meals, appropriate clothes, new friends in a friendly community and a job.

At the Happenings Cluster, unemployed Veterans are hired to learn agribusiness skills. They own, manage and operate an enterprise producing products people want and need to buy.

They learn to deliver their harvests and crafts quickly, attractively.

Do you know an unemployed veteran who needs to change?

Veterans need STAT Care

Mon, 05/19/2014 - 11:59

Dire conditions at V.A. medical centers need STAT solutions. The media has front and back-stories about the neglect of our highly valued citizens.

We The People must act to help. Possible STAT solutions:

• Talented residents in regional medical settings can help.
• Local physicians can help triage cases and assisted by “residents on-call,” can help alleviate serious problems.
• Trained medical admins can provide valuable on site support
• Doctors Without Boarders could help
• Recently retired physicians, nurses and other medical personnel can help

The conversation about this (not so current) scandal will continue. Perhaps to raise aware of the challenges some veterans face.

In the meantime, it is CARE, hands-on care, diagnostic care and treatment that these veterans need.

It’s time to dispense with bureaucratic restrictions. Trained medical personnel in good standing who take seriously the oath: Do No Harm”
can reverse this sad story. Good citizens know how. Let Them.

Peace In Our Time

Mon, 04/28/2014 - 14:37

AUV Spring FieldWhat is It?

It’s a sense of well-being, safety and freedom; it’s the knowledge
that today and tomorrow will see us enjoying our freedom, recognized and
respected within our families, neighborhoods communities, and country.

Peace takes effort. Peace making is an individual responsibility we all share.
We are all called to make Peace happen. It is our individual efforts that
insure Peace, grown and protected daily.

How?

Peace starts with simple common courtesy. Friendliness, a smile, a greeting with a smile, the words: “please” and “thank you” spoken often. Practicing patience to listen to differing points of view. With respect for one another.

Kindness Matters. Kindness makes Peace Happen when we all practice Kindess.
