Memorial Day Tribute: "Remembering William"

My search for any civil war relatives started over three months ago. I wanted to become a member of the UDC ( United Daughters of the Confederacy) because I am a Southern woman by birth and because of the fact I write about and photograph civil war reenactments. The journey started out like any other, finding those facts that would associate me with a family member who served as a Confederate soldier. After speaking with my uncle Gary Calvert, I visited the Mississippi Department of Archives… Continue

Veteran Assisting Veterans

Veterans need to band together to assist each other. It's a brotherhood that only veterans understand. I've made many decisions in my life based on the desire to assist others. Wheather it was assisting the civilians of a foreign country or our veteran at home, my motivation continues to be fueled by this desire. In my current profession as a HR Specialist, I enjoy assiting Veterans in becoming employed within the hospitals that address their health concerns. Under my other hat, as a Real… Continue

Long Week

What a hard week. I was so exhausted Friday after work. I was glad to be able to sleep in. I got to finally make it to the doctors this week. I now have to attend physical therapy. I am wondering if I really should try to stay in the army or hang up my boots and dogtags and retire. Family is well and plan on spending time with the wife this weekend.

Meeting Secrecy

I am trying to understand how board members of a VFW Post can state, "there will be no discussion about this meeting outside of this meeting, in the social area or anywhere else."

Funding for Rally Has Been Slow In Coming

We're having difficulty getting funding for the Rally.

I originally posted on our UCV blog that I may have to cancel the Rally if we didn't have the minimum amount required to meet Park Service rules by 12 May. That is the day I meet with the National Park Service and tell them what we will be doing. We still may not be able to make it.

This Will Be My Last Appeal for Help

because on 11 May, if I'm not absolutely certain we have funding, the Declaration of… Continue
