Crisfield community honors over 200 veterans and servicemen

New Bill Would Provide Veterans with Better Healthcare Options

Our military men and women have been involved in conflicts across the globe, some seen and others unseen since our founding beginning with the American Revolution.

Thankfully, American men and women have continued to hear our nations call to fight for our freedoms and security, even when our country has hard issues to overcome when it comes to partisan skirmishes. We need to do more to ensure that when the headlines fade, the social media campaigns run their course and November 11 comes and goes, our awareness of those needs and will to do something about it doesn't fade with them. In 2012 it was estimated that 45 percent of the veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars had claimed compensation for service-related injuries.

Bryan Wood, a combat veteran and author of the book "Unspoken Abandonment", speaks openly about how hard it is for veterans to return home while their mind still functions as if it's facing the danger of a war zone.

Pam Coulbourne who coordinates both the Always Free Honor Flight and the Always Free Walk of Honor, said there are still plenty of bricks available for people who want to honor the veterans in their families.

No longer is it just a chance to watch parades, pause at 11 a.m., donate to veterans advocacy groups and thank members of the military.

Memorial Day honors America's war dead, while Veterans Day honors all American veterans, living and dead, and has a special emphasis on thanking living veterans for their service to the country. They go through unbelievably hard training, then wait on alert for when they may be dispatched to the most unsafe areas of the world.

On the central Kenai Peninsula, area organizations are hosting a Veterans Day celebration at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.

"A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them impotent to renew hostilities, and gave to the world an assured opportunity to reconstruct its shattered order and to work out in peace a new and juster set of worldwide relations". Sure, the 768,000 surviving veterans from World War II are credited as the "Greatest Generation".

Each year on Memorial Day, we honor those who have laid down their lives in military service. 'The objective of all war, ' said Augustine, 'is peace.' The First World War produced man's first great effort in recent times to solve by worldwide cooperation the problems of war.

Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a legal holiday in the united states in 1918 to honor the end of World War I.

A friend of mine was killed off the northeast coast of Korea when the U.S.S. Walke hit a floating mine, and that's when I enlisted in the U.S. Navy. They never forgot the American dream.

Today is not only Veterans Day but part of National Veterans Awareness Week.

"I enjoyed myself at that time and those years are a lot different than they are today". And they do it all for us.

So, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, is the day to honor all who have served in the military - regardless of when, where or how.

We all should have an understanding of where our service members are and what dangers they are facing. Now lawmakers are considering a bill to overhaul the program and change the rules about when and where veterans can seek care outside the VA system.This effort demands close attention from veterans and their many advocates.
