White Apple Institute staff thanks veterans for their service.
Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Mitchell Red Cloud Jr. Mitchell served in the Marines from Aug. 11, 1941 to Nov. 9, 1945 during World War II. He also served in the Army from 1948 to 1950 during the Korean War.

Mitchell was born in Hatfield, Wisconsin, as a member of the Ho-Chunk Native American Nation. He dropped out of high school to enlist in the Marine Corps in 1941. He was assigned to the Pacific Theater after the attack on Pearl Harbor and served on the islands of Guadalcanal and Okinawa as an infantryman. Mitchell refused medical discharge after falling ill with a tropical disease in Guadalcanal. He saw frequent combat and was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1945 after being wounded in Okinawa. Upon returning to the United States, Mitchell got married and had a daughter.

Mitchell rejoined the military in 1948 as an Army infantryman. His unit was assigned to Kyushu, Japan, and later to the Korean Peninsula. On Nov. 5, 1950, Mitchell was occupying a listening post in front of his company’s base near Chonghyon, North Korea. During the night, he became suspicious after hearing unusual noises, and enemy Chinese soldiers soon emerged from the brush about 100 feet from Mitchell’s post to surprise ambush the base. Mitchell alerted his company and began firing at the enemy. He refused to leave his post even after being shot twice in the chest. With too little strength to stand up, Mitchell wrapped his arm around a tree so he could continue fighting, despite being exposed to heavy enemy fire. He continued to fire on the enemy until his eventual death, significantly slowing the enemy’s advancement. This allowed his company to reorganize and evacuate the wounded, saving many lives. Mitchell was shot at least eight times during the ordeal.

Mitchell was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a service member. The medal was given to his mother in 1951. An Army camp in South Korea, a Navy ship, a memorial park and several other locations have been named in his honor.

We honor his service.

I'm glad this injustiice was corrected finally! But 50 years!! This started me thinking "When will the Civil Rights Act become a law?".

Ask Dr. Applewhite about Restoring Hope for Students and Veteran with Disability (Depression, Chronic pain, hopelessness)

Attention Dreamers, Don't Stop Dreaming!
My work with the students and veterans of White Apple Institute has been negatively impacted by President Trump's decision to deactivate DECA. It is difficult to respond to their frustration and tears, especially for those who wear (or wore) a uniform to protect our country, strive to complete their education, succeed in the workforce, and become productive citizens.

Dreamers, Don't Stop Dreaming! This is America! The majority of my time as Director of White Apple Institute is focused on helping students with disabilities, specifically those who are veterans of our Armed Forces, complete their education to succeed in the workforce.Yes, some of them are under DECA. They have fought long and hard to advocate for accommodations in the classroom and workplace, and to gain citizenship, but for many it is a nightmarish process. It's not the almost $800 in fees, or the lack of a sponsor, as much as it is the loss of time from school and work to complete the process. A simple solution would be to make the citizenship process more streamlined. Maybe that will solve the problems for all those under the deportation umbrella. What do you think?.
I'm very concerned about any person with disability who may have to drop out of school, work, and life because of injustices, including students and veterans who struggle to juggle school, work, and parenting schedules.
