Grieving Soldier Bids Best K-9 Buddy Goodbye as He Drapes Him with US Flag

Grieving Soldier Bids Best K-9 Buddy Goodbye as He Drapes Him with US Flag

 “Man’s best friend.” Never has a truer phrase been said when we think of the long, rich history of loyalty and companionship between dogs and humans.
The man: Kyle Smith, U.S. Air Force. The best friend: Bodza, an 11-year-old German shepherd. The pair ended up with a significant shared history after spending 189 desperately cold days in Kyrgyzstan on a security mission. Bodza was a military dog.

New law will help veteran entrepreneurs

New law will help veteran entrepreneurs
The American Legion
Veteran entrepreneurs will benefit from a new law aimed at helping them grow their small businesses, create jobs and expand economic opportunity.
The Veterans Small Business Enhancement Act was signed into law by President Trump earlier this month. The legislation adds veterans to the list of eligible recipients for federal surplus personal property, such as office equipment and furniture to specialized apparatuses including scientific devices and heavy machinery.
Veteran small business owners now join women and minority small business owners and veterans service organizations (VSOs) as eligible recipients for federal surplus personal property.
The American Legion and other VSOs, including VFW and Paralyzed Veterans of America, supported the legislation. The Legion’s National Executive Committee passed Resolution 21 at the 2018 Fall Meetings to support legislation ensuring parity for veterans in all state and federal small business programs.


Our mission is to provide Service Animals to US Military Veterans. Through the hard work, dedication, and passionate care of our trainers and providers, we train both the service animal and the Veteran.

14 NFL players who lost their lives in combat over the years

Once, when the United States went to war, that war was felt by everyone in the country. The wars' effects seeped into every facet of American life. The primary reason for this was the draft. Selective service meant that anyone in America could be called up to serve and fight a war at any given time. This included movie stars, politicians, and even star athletes — some of whom never made it home.

The Navy Vessel Built From Steel From The Wreckage Of The World Trade Center

The Navy Vessel Built From Steel From The Wreckage Of The World Trade Center
Joe Daraskevich, The Florida Times-Union
September 11, 2018 at 07:15 AM

Sailors aboard the USS New York pay their respects every year to those who died in the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The plan for Tuesday is to perform the ceremony at Naval Station Mayport, the home base for the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock.
But this ship carries more than a New York name. Reminders of 9/11 abound. Its very nose is made from steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. And its sailors are taught to never forget their connection to the catastrophe.
"Every ship in the Navy has a namesake room or a legacy room, but on our ship the whole ship is a legacy to what happened," Command Master Chief Ben Hodges said.
A steel plate recovered from the Trade Center rubble is on display above one of the most-used passageways. A firefighter's helmet reminds sailors of the first responders who sprang into action.
Hodges said the reminders extend to the ship's daily prayer ritual, for which the chaplain chooses the name of someone who died in the attacks to honor. It all makes it impossible to forget Sept. 11, he said.
"We talk to all of our sailors when they initially check in and explain to them the significance of what they are a part of," Hodges said. "You can't help when you walk around the ship to notice all the things meant to remind you of why you serve."
Despite all of the reminders found in many corners of the ship, the piece with the greatest significance goes unseen.
The New York's bow stem — the part at the very front of the ship just below the water's surface — was forged using steel from one of the twin towers.
