Well Spouse Association

While not specifically targeting veterans and their families, the Well Spouse Association provides help for veterans and families of veterans by providing support for spousal caregivers.

SpousalCaregiving

Are you a husband, wife or partner looking after a spouse or partner with chronic illness and/or long-term disability?

Do you feel alone in your spousal caregiving?

Do you feel no one really gets what you are going through?

Or do you know someone else who fits this description?

If so, you (or that person) are a spousal caregiver, and the WSA's twin mottos: "You Are Not Alone" and "When One is Sick... Two Need Help" say it all!

Well Spouse® Association Members find support, sharing and a social community

The Retired Enlisted Association

THE RETIRED ENLISTED ASSOCIATION (TREA) was founded in 1963 by two men retired from the Air Force -- Master Sergeant George Skonce and Master Sergeant Dean Sorell. These two dedicated retirees realized that they, and their fellow enlisted retirees, had no voice in the corridors of power to stand up for their hard-earned rights and promised benefits.

Fiscal Year 2018 FCC Budget

Federal Communications Commission Chair Ajit Pai and Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Michael O'Rielly testified at a hearing on their agency's fiscal year 2018 budget request. The primary topic was extending broadband internet connectivity.

Fiscal Year 2018 NIH Budget

National Institutes of Health directors testified at a hearing on their fiscal year 2018 budget request, and some of the medical research taking place to combat diseases. The leaders outlined their respective work in areas such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, cystic fibrosis, cancer research, and opioid addiction.

Russian Interference in 2016 Election

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before the House Intelligence Committee at a hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He said the Russian government, at the direction of President Vladimir Putin, conducted cyberattacks to influence the presidential election. He also told committee members the Obama administration did not reveal Russian meddling out of fears of revealing too much about U.S. intelligence gathering and of being accused of "taking sides" in the race. Mr. Johnson said he was not aware of any evidence that votes were altered or suppressed through cyber intrusions. In addition, he discussed his rationale for designating U.S. election systems as critical infrastructure in early January 2017.

Navy Fiscal Year Year 2018 Budget Request

Acting Navy Secretary Sean Stackley, Naval Operations Chief John Richardson, and Marine Corps Commandant Robert Neller testified at a hearing on President Trump's fiscal year 2018 Navy budget request.

Authorization for the Use of Military Force

Former George W. Bush and Obama administration officials testified at a hearing on the legal issues of congressional authorizations for the use of military force (AUMF) overseas. The witnesses explained the policies and legal reasoning behind the application of the 2001 AUMF, which Congress passed after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, and detailed their reasoning for what they say is the need for a new AUMF to more specifically guide military actions against global threats and groups that did not exist in 2001.

Fiscal Year 2018 Department Energy Budget

Energy Secretary Rick Perry testified before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee on his department's fiscal year 2018 budget request.

Drug Injury Advertisements

Doctors and legal experts testified about prescription drug injury advertisements. The hearing examined the impact of these ads on patient care and the doctor-patient relationship.

Extension of Safety Net Health Programs

Current and former state and federal health care officials testified at a hearing on extending funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which was set to expire at the end of September 2017. Other health care programs scheduled to expire are health centers that provide primary medical care for underserved communities. Democratic committee members discussed how CHIP coverage would be affected by proposed Republican changes to the Medicaid program.

Fiscal Year 2018 Interior Budget

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke testified before the Energy and Natural Resources Committee on his department's fiscal year 2018 budget request. Senators asked primarily about issues affecting their states, including oil and gas development in Alaska and wetlands reclamation projects in Louisiana. The hearing was cut short because Senate Democrats did not consent for committee hearings that day to last beyond the first two hours.

Russian Interference in U.S. Elections

Federal intelligence and cybersecurity officials as well as state government and election board leaders testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about Russian hacking and U.S. elections. Acting Homeland Security Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity Jeanette Manfra said that 21 states were targeted by Russian hacking attempts during the 2016 election cycle, but that no vote tallies were altered. Ms. Manfra and the other witnesses discussed what methods were employed in those attempts to discover vulnerabilities in U.S. election infrastructure, lessons learned for future election cycles, and recommendations for how federal and state officials could be in better communication about potential breaches and ensuring voting systems security.

U.S. Vets reaches out to homeless veterans, but some reject aid

By Sonya Padgett
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

There are about 1,350 homeless veterans in the valley, Derby estimates, which is a significant decrease from the 4,000 homeless veterans of a few years ago. For every three homeless people they make contact with, one is a veteran. About half of the veterans they meet will accept some form of help.

"We find the majority just want that conversation, that relationship," Derby says. "They just enjoy our company. They may not want services but they do want someone who will actually stop and listen to them."

Employment Help Available To Veterans

Picture this: An applicant walks into a job interview, extends a firm handshake, looks the hiring manager straight in the eye, and begins to detail her impressive qualifications.

Her resume clearly shows a record of dependability and enthusiasm. It is evident that teamwork and commitment to the mission at hand are hardwired into her DNA. She has received world-class training from one of the most revered and demanding organizations in the world. And she has been tested, time and again, in pressure-cooker situations.

What's more, if she is hired, the company may receive a tax credit from the federal government of $5,600 or more.

Is The Army Doing Enough To Help Soldiers Suffering From Mental Health Problems?

By Greg Barnes, Staff writer
Fayetteville (NC) Observer

Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick stood in front of 14,000 soldiers on Fort Bragg in February with a message:

"We have got to stop the violence."

Just weeks before, Helmick had closed out the combat mission in Iraq and brought the troops home. Now, as he congratulated them for a job well done, he could not ignore some disturbing numbers. In just the past six weeks, he knew of six suicides and 25 accusations of spousal abuse.

Since Helmick retired in May, the violence at home has only gotten worse.
