A new documentary seeks to put a face on the invisible wounds of war.
Give an Hour is a nonprofit group with a mission to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to acute and chronic conditions within communities.

We are hosting a Google+ Hangout to talk about Give an Hour’s “Indiegogo Campaign” to finance an important documentary. The documentary, written, directed and produced by Charlie Stuart, depicts the courage it takes to talk about the stigmas behind mental health.

The documentary features the stories of Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen and Marine Corps veteran Brendan O’Toole. The film reflects on O’Toole’s time in Afghanistan and the help he sought after returning home. Dr. Van Dahlen also shares about her own family’s history of mental illness.

Ok Glass, Show me the Battlefield
How do you think you could've benefited from using this technology in combat situations?
The military is testing the wearable’s use for combat situations, as well as building apps that could help soldiers on the battlefield.

Help! I Did My Taxes Wrong:
Take a moment, let yourself freak out and then head to the Internal Revenue Service website.

The next step depends on the mistake you made:
As irritating as it is to discover you've made a tax mistake, it's not as hard to fix as you might think.

Did you know having kids can change your chance of approval?
While there are three major areas that come into play, there's one unique requirement that sets the VA home loan apart from others.

You leave no stone unturned when it comes to your children.
Your home loan is no exception:

Lawn Tip: Mow Tall
Set your lawn mower high to avoid cutting off more than the top third of the grass' height! Taller grass requires less watering.

Letting you grass grow an extra inch equals Less watering and a thicker and possibly greener lawn. Cutting too short and over watering can ruin your lawn.

Without a doubt, the increasing popularity of the VA loan stems from the program's signature benefits.

Military children never ask for a "Thank you."
That's why it's your job to reach out and tell them yourself.

Share to show your support for the over 2 million children who have the privilege of calling those who fight for our freedom, Mom and Dad.

Where I grew up, Ft. Benning, GA, everyone I grew up with were military Brats, as we were affectionately known by our own, dealt with the savage loss of our family members during Vietnam. I was 14 when I lost my dad. Every week another neighbor or friends dad came back draped under a flag, what was left of them, that is. Most were closed casket.
Ricardo nails it quite well. Nixon was still in when I joined, not drafted. I joined to serve my country, the same way my father and all our forefathers have done since the first came in tge early 1800s.
Life as a military brat is nothing like those who seldom stray past their home town for most if their life. Every two or three years were times of upheaval, packing everything and moving to a new base. New friends, faces, policies, schools, etc. There is something to growing up a rolling stone in order to support those we love. Our moms and dads putting their lives on the line, supporting their country, trying to raise a family, and hope to provide anything close to a normal life for their children.
My dad is forever a resident of Ft Benning. WWII, Korea, Vietnam. My brother, Vietnam, Jordan, and I served in Germany.
I did not see combat. Experiencing the trauma as a kid of my friends and neighbors not coming back was no less hard to deal with, than actually seeing your buddy turned into hamburger. I spent a lot of time at Martin Army Hospital, with my dad, and other friends recovering from horrific wounds suffered in Nam.
We watched the news every night, hoping it would not be a story of another one of our own not coming home.
Those were difficult days, while our military were being spit on and called baby killers. I was angry to hear and see those idiot protestors knowing so many people I loved were in harms way fighting for their right to be jerks.
