What Is The British Military Doing In Kuwait? | Forces TV
The burning oil fields of Kuwait at the start of the 1990 Gulf War are one of the abiding images associated with the country. But in the 28 years since the conflict, the country has changed and the British military has played its part.

Disabled Veteran Assaulted, Arrested, and Jailed by Sheriff for asking a question: Pierce,WA
Please donate to my gofundme to cover the expenses required to defend myself against the ongoing Legal Persecution by Pierce County over this and, God willing, to ultimately find justice. http://www.gofundme.com/prnml8 Check out the "We the People" ball cap.I am wearing. Kinda ironic, I was only at the courthouse to file an affidavit on my friend's case and to take care of a $25 parking ticket. I am a gulf war veteran, a well known musician in Western Washington, frequently volunteer my time for charity, and recently ran a campaign for Sheriff, receiving nearly 25% of the vote for Lewis County, WA. as a Constitutional Sheriff.

Obama Cutting Red Tape For US Vets "Long Overdue"
Key quote from President Obama:But for years, many veterans with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome) who have tried to seek benefits -- veterans of today's wars and earlier wars -- have often found themselves stymied. They've been required to produce evidence proving that a specific event caused their PTSD. And that practice has kept the vast majority of those with PTSD who served in non-combat roles, but who still waged war, from getting the care they need. Well, I don't think our troops on the battlefield should have to take notes to keep for a claims application. And I've met enough veterans to know that you don't have to engage in a firefight to endure the trauma of war. So we're changing the way things are done. On Monday, the Department of Veterans Affairs, led by Secretary Ric Shinseki, will begin making it easier for a veteran with PTSD to get the benefits he or she needs. This is a long-overdue step that will help veterans not just of the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars, but generations of their brave predecessors who proudly served and sacrificed in all our wars. It's a step that proves America will always be here for our veterans, just as they've been there for us. We won't let them down. We take care of our own. And as long as I'm Commander-in-Chief, that's what we're going to keep doing. Thank you.

The USMC Boonie Hat Review
A boonie hat, also known as a bush hat, is a form of wide-brim hat commonly used by military forces. Its design is similar to a bucket hat but with a stiffer brim. Often a fabric tape band of 'branch loops' is sewn around the crown of the hat. This 'foliage ring' is meant to hold additional vegetation as camouflage. A strap provides stability. The crown may be vented with rivets or mesh panels. Snaps may also be provided with which to fix the brim in the style of an Australian bush hat. The boonie hat was introduced to the United States armed forces during the Vietnam War, when United States Army Green Berets began wearing them in the field, along with Australian and Army of the Republic of Vietnam units.[1] These leopard spot or tigerstripe boonie hats were locally procured, the camo cloth was usually salvaged from other uniform items or with the former from a parachute or made up by the tailor. In 1967, the US Army began issuing boonie hats, as the "Hat, Jungle, with Insect Net", made of cotton and wind-resistant poplin, in olive drab, tigerstripe, and ERDL pattern.[2] It was meant to supplement and replace the patrol and baseball caps that had been in service since World War II. As the U.S. military evolved away from a garrison mentality, the boonie found a permanent place as part of the uniform of all services. The boonie has changed little through the decades since Vietnam and is still in use in Iraq and Afghanistan as an alternative to the patrol cap. The U.S. Military boonie hat has come in a variety of camouflage patterns; the current assortment includes US M81 woodland, three-color desert, UCP, and both desert and woodland versions of MARPAT, as well as the Air Force ABU pattern. The boonie hat is often worn with the wearer's rank insignia pinned to the front, above the branch loops.

Interviews with World War II Veterans
Creating Disability Inclusive Workplaces for Recently Returned Veterans with Disabilities
Presenter:Hannah Rudstam, Faculty, Employment and Disability Institute, Cornell University Description: According to the U.S. Census Bureau there about 21.8 million veterans in the U.S. with nearly 10 million in our workforce. Generally, veterans have employment and education levels similar to the overall population. Yet, younger male veterans (age 18 -- 24) who served during recent engagements have an unemployment rate that is nearly double that of their non-veteran peers. Furthermore, the number of veterans with a service-connected disability has risen dramatically among Gulf War veterans. Although employers generally have positive attitudes toward employing veterans, they struggle with issues and misperceptions around employing veterans with disabilities. In this session, we will review the statistics about returning veterans, including veterans with the signature disabilities of PTSD and TBI. Also, we will briefly review two studies suggesting some key employment-related issues and misperceptions about veterans with disabilities. Finally, we will discuss key steps employers can take to ensure veterans with disabilities are welcomed into the workforce.

Forged By War: Sangrador Dagger by Darrin Sirois

The dual-edged Sangrador™ is a fixed blade tactical combat knife with a dagger style blade that serves one purpose. Let's hope someone rushing at you never finds out. You'd expect a knife like the Sangrador™ to be created by a veteran who's spent plenty of time in the field. An advanced soldier who knows what works and what doesn't. Darrin Sirois, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, is all that and more. Working with our Forged By War™ program, he created a knife that a Special Ops fighter would find invaluable. After all, he spent 11 tours in Iraq and fought in the Balkans and Panama. Sangrador means bleeder in Latin. And this knife takes its role seriously. A 5.5" dual-edged SK5 steel dagger style blade that has unbelievable penetrating abilities. Add Veff Serrations™ and you have a knife that feels as powerful at preventing attacks as it does cutting through cord and rope. A black powder coat finish resists corrosion and camouflages it perfectly in the dark of night. AKA: working hours for you. A non-slip G10 handle provides unbeatable grip in all conditions, even in sweaty hand-to-hand combat. Just slide it into your MOLLE compatible sheath with a compartment for extra accessories. Then prepare to go into battle with extra large force. When you want twice as much offense in battle, reach for the dual-edged Sangrador™. About the Forged By War™ program – In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them on the battlefield. CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War™ program. These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice. Mission ready tools that are, Forged By War™. Darren Sirois' charity of choice for this tool is the Purple Heart Homes. Filmed on location in Fayetteville, NC and Las Vegas, NV, 2016. Filmed and edited by Ben Petersen.

Iraq Requests One-year Deferral on Gulf War Reparations
A U.N. official said on Wednesday that Iraq has requested a one-year deferral of its final payment of 4 point 6 billion dollars in reparations for destroying Kuwait's oil facilities during its 1990-91 occupation. Kuwait and major powers on the ruling body of the U.N. Compensation Commission will consider the formal request at a special session in Geneva on Thursday. The official said "We have a request for a one-year suspension of the requirement to deposit 5 percent of Iraqi oil revenues into the compensation fund." Iraq faces a cash crisis caused by falling oil prices and war with Islamic militants. And with its economy set to shrink for the first time since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam and ended more than a decade of sanctions, Iraq can ill afford to divert a large chunk of the 2015 budget to make that last payment due next year. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/qRzdkqsEsIM/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Gulf War Documentary Film
Gulf War syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War illness (GWI) is a chronic multisymptom disorder affecting veterans and civilians after the 1991 Gulf War. A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have included fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, cognitive problems, skin rashes and diarrhea. Approximately 250,000 of the 697,000 veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences. From 1995 to 2005, the health of combat veterans worsened in comparison with nondeployed veterans, with the onset of more new chronic diseases, functional impairment, repeated clinic visits and hospitalizations, chronic fatigue syndrome-like illness, posttraumatic stress disorder, and greater persistence of adverse health incidents. Those who were near conflicts during or downwind of chemical weapons depot demolition, had exposure to toxic chemicals which are currently believed to be the cause of the illness. Several specific causes have been investigated, including pyridostigmine bromide (PB) nerve gas antidote (NAPP) pills, organophosphate military strength pesticides, chemical weapons, and depleted uranium. Causes which have been ruled out include post traumatic stress disorder, anthrax vaccinations,[6] and smoke from oil well fires, though these exposures may have led to various illnesses and symptoms in a limited number of Gulf War veterans. PB or NAPP antidote pills given to protect troops from nerve agents and military strength insecticides used during deployment have currently been most closely linked to Gulf War veterans' chronic multi-symptom illness. Exposure to the destruction of the Khamisiyah weapons depot, where large quantities of Iraqi chemical munitions containing sarin and cyclosarin nerve agents was stored, is negatively correlated with motor speed. Exposure to depleted uranium is unlikely to be a primary cause of Gulf War Illness. There were a steady increase in malignancies and newborn malformations after the Gulf War.[9] Exposure to heavy metals, solvents, paints and pesticides was associated with poor sperm quality, spontaneous abortion, birth defects, and cancer in offspring. Depleted uranium may cause reproductive toxicity, and exposure to it should be followed for increased risk of fertility problems and reproductive cancers. A 2006 review of studies of international coalition veterans' children found no strong or consistent evidence of an increase in birth defects. Methods of preventing or treating Gulf War syndrome vary. While the treatment of sarin exposure has been studied, other acetylcholinesterase inhibitors such as pyridostigmine bromide and organophosphate insecticides may or may not involve similar management. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_war_syndrome

USS Jouett Terrier Missile Launch - Bob Windholz, veteran, Atlanta attorney
Terrier Missile Launch from the USS Jouett. The USS Jouett had "Terrier" missiles, which were state-of-the-art in Vietnam for at shipboard SAMs [surface to air missiles]. On one occasion we were close to the North Vietnam coast during bombing raids on Vinh. After March 1968, President Johnson put all of North Vietnam above 20 degrees North Latitude off-limits for bombing missions. The Navy was confined to missions south of this no-bomb latitude. A lead Navy target was Vinh. Vinh was an assembly point for funneling arms south to the war below the DMZ. The North Vietnamese air force used an airfield called Bai Thong for marshalling Mig-21s for interdiction of our planes on bombing missions near Vinh. Late in the afternoon, when missions were being conducted against Vinh, the Migs would fly to the west and engage our aircraft when the setting sun was behind the Migs. One afternoon an F-4 flying CAP (combat air patrol) engaged a Mig-21. The command came from the commander at "Yankee Station" (carrier location in Gulf of Tonkin) to "take the Mig with the F-4. Our DLG had missiles on the rail with the Mig closing on our ship. The probability of a shoot down of the Mig by our ship's Terriers was around 96 percent (if my memory is correct). Ultimately the F-4 engaged the Mig and the Mig won the day by shooting down the F-4. My own feeling after that experience was one of sadness for the downed crew and anger for the arrogance shown by the commander at "Yankee Station". Two fliers were lost or captured when our missiles could have done the job without risking two airmen. In fairness to the Yankee Station commander, I never heard their side of the story but would love to hear that explanation some day. The F-4 crew would have probably preferred to engage the Mig, just like they did, knowing the risks. Our guys were gutsy and aggressive. Maybe that's why Top Gun school was established in 1969 http://www.robertswindholz.com | Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney. REDUCED FEES for US military veterans. (678) 990-1584

Understanding Aboriginal Identity
Understanding Aboriginal Identity explores the complex issue of self-identification for Aboriginal people.

From a Metis farm in rural Alberta, to the offices of Canada’s leading scholars, Understanding Aboriginal Identity examines the factors that shape who we are.
