Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
A memorial is scheduled to be built at Eisenhower Park, which will honor the victims and heroes of the World Trade Center tragedy on September 11th.

The Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our membersó veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
Formed in 1920 and chartered by Congress in 1932, the million-member DAV is the official voice of America's service-connected disabled veterans -- a strong, insistent voice that represents all of America's 2.1 million disabled veterans, their families and survivors. Its nationwide network of services -- free of charge to all veterans and members of their families -- is totally supported by membership dues and contributions from the American public. Not a government agency, the DAV's national organization receives no government funds.

Founded in 1978, Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. is the only national Vietnam veterans organization congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families. VVA is organized as a not-for-profit corporation and is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

From the very basics to the tough ones on VA procedures. The VASC is also the home of the American Veterans Alliance Info. Packs. Need to get your records, find friends, get face to face help? Help and assistance is available right here at the VASC.
a nonprofit organization, was established to provide various benefits for all Veterans regardless of which branch of the military they were with. The Foundations main goal is to step in and assist Veterans, either through the Veterans Hospitals, homeless programs, educational programs, crisis programs, etc., where the local, state, and federal governments leave off.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall USA website is dedicated to honoring those who died in the Vietnam War. Since it first went on line in 1996 it has evolved into something more. It is now also a place of healing for those affected by one of the most divisive wars in our nation's history.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
The Gulf War Society started in 1997 when three friends put on a small display at an M.V.T Military show. Since then things have grown considerably and we now display vehicles and uniforms from all nations that took part, including various coalition and Iraqi weapons and equipment.
Our Department of Defense reports that Iraq holds some of our brothers as Prisoners of War, and they must be brought home. Gulf War veterans of 1991 have lived and fought in this area since 1991 and it has impacted hundreds of thousands of soldiers whose wounds may be harder to see than a gunshot wound, but are no less severe.
The NGWRC understands that once the order to deploy is given the soldier must make do with the equipment, policies and procedures that exist. That is where we can and will help. We will be there for those veterans who return from this war should it happen, and we have insured that the deficiencies have been noted so there will be no denials and no delay should they become injured
Approximately 195,000 U. S. service members have been identified as participants in the post-World War II occupation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan following the atomic bombing of Japan. In addition, approximately 210,000 mostly military members are confirmed as participants in U.S. atmospheric nuclear weapons tests between 1945 and 1962 in the United States and the Pacific and Atlantic oceans prior to the 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty. Largely as a result of epidemiological studies of Japanese atomic bomb survivors, exposure to radiation has been associated with a number of disorders including leukemia, various cancers and cataracts. VA provides special priority enrollment for health-care services to "atomic veterans" for radiation-related conditions. In addition, these "atomic veterans" are eligible to participate in the VA ionizing radiation registry examination program.
This new site has been designed to cover the upcoming battles in Iraq. Desert Storm II, Son of Gulf War, UN revenge. Whatever. We'll have postings from around the world daily covering the events as they happen, along with a place for people to comment on the current state of affairs.

The Department of Defense maintains a broad Internet presence to help military members, veterans and the general public informed about issues pertaining to our military. By visiting the right Web site, visitors can get the information they need.
Operation Uplink is a unique program that keeps military personnel and hospitalized veterans in touch with their families and loved ones by providing them with a free phone card. Using contributions from supporters like you, Operation Uplink purchases phone cards and distributes them to servicemen and women who are separated from those they care about.
It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.|
