Illinois creates foundation to help veterans | KMOV.com St. Louis

Supporters say having a non-profit foundation –rather than the state — oversee the network will provide more flexibility in raising and distributing funds. It also will allow the group to hire an executive director who’s not a political appointee.

Guarding the Honored Unknowns | The Veterans Site Blog

Being a guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is an honor that is a life style commitment far beyond the mettle it takes to be a Marine.

We thank all the young men who guard this tomb every minute of every day.

What The VA Leader Says He Needs To Provide Healthcare To Vets Like These Guys Is A Real Head-Shaker

What the VA needs is reform and leadership, not more money. The VA’s budget has increased by 173% since 2000 which is more than the growth in VA patients. It needs to have more authority to hold its employees accountable for their actions. Before we throw more money at the VA, we should demand better results and real reform from that agency.

Rhode Island Veterans Receiving Help

Many veterans have come home only to find the job they had when they left, no longer exists.  As challenging as it is for our soldiers to blend back into normal life, adding the loss of a job is not something else they should have to bear. 

Rhode Island is taking steps to help this.  Read more here:  RI Veterans Given Help Finding Work

Veterans, PTSD and Fireworks

Not everybody enjoys fireworks.  Some Veterans would like to raise awareness that these noises may bring back some awful memories to men and women of war.  Please think of others and be considerate.

The Meaning of Sacrifice?

I don’t think, when submariner Matthew Hindes volunteered to sacrificed for his country, this is what he had in mind.

A Michigan judge has ordered that Hindes show up in court or lose custody of his daughter.  This normally, would not be an issue.  But currently, Hindes is on a submarine somewhere in the Pacific.

Stories like these are what motivate us at AmMo-PAC to take action.

We are (Am)erican (Mo)thers, and we are on a mission.

Whether it is the selling out of our children and their future, the abandonment of our veterans after risking their lives both at home and abroad, or the erosion of our most basic rights as human beings, America is now under attack. This land of liberty has been remade into something else entirely and we here at AmMoPAC come together as one to say, “NO MORE!”

Our mission is to protect:

OUR RIGHTS
From the Bill of Rights to our bodies to our own backyards, our right to live our lives as we see fit, according to what is best for us and for OUR families is slowly dying. From our right to protect our lives, families, and property as ensured by the Second Amendment, or our right to decide for ourselves what we put into our bodies, government and special interest groups have for far too long been allowed to trample those rights. We will no longer stand for this. We will fight repressive policy, and we will expose those men and women who support such policy.

OUR CHILDREN
We protect our children, because that is our job. We will not stand idly by as bureaucrats and collectivists work side by side to destroy the concepts of identity, personal morality and beliefs, independence, self-reliance, and self-worth in our children. We will not allow power-hungry politicians to use our children as data-collection portals. We will fight destructive and intrusive policy, and we will expose those men and women who support such policy.

OUR VETERANS
Our veterans are our parents, our grandparents, our sons, our daughters, our brothers and our sisters, our aunts and our uncles. Our veterans stood up and answered a call; they readied themselves and did what was asked of them, sacrificing more than most of us could fathom. They signed a contract promising to do this, and in return were promised just compensation that included healthcare and pay, and with them respect and dignity. BUT our veterans are being abandoned, and because their contractor is also their arbiter, they have virtually no recourse.
We protect our veterans, because they protected us. We support a strong military, one that protects America and is given what they are promised. We do not support unnecessary use of our military around the world that risks lives and keeps families apart. We will fight to keep our men and women in uniform home whenever possible, cared for and protected when not possible, and honored when they are through. We will fight policy that abandons our veterans, and we will expose the men and women who support such policy.

We are AmMoPAC, and this is our mission.
