Job-seeking veterans face challenges in obtaining employment. Job search self-efficacy moderated relationships between perceptions of employer stereotypic beliefs and job search effort and intensity. Individual goal orientation affected engagement in concealing or avoiding identity management strategies. Implications for veterans seeking employment and employers are discussed.
“While sexual exploitation existed in Iraq, as anywhere, long before the war began in 2003, ‘the invasion and instability that followed led to an environment where young women and girls became much more vulnerable to trafficking.”
Now that the parades have ended and veterans have enjoyed the “heartfelt gratitude” of an appreciative nation (and a free meal, from a “select menu” at Applebees), I would ask veterans, as they resume their lives of anonymity and neglect, to put aside, for a moment, all the bunk we have been fed over the years from those who were not there.
The United States has likely reached a grim but historic milestone in the war on terror: 1 million veterans injured from the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. But you haven’t heard this reported anywhere else. Why? Because the government is no longer sharing this information with the public.
Veterans are all too familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The U.S. voters have shown they don’t recognize a PTSD mindset that set into the citizenry since 911 and the collapse of the economy in 2007-2008.
In an amazing redux of Debby does Dallas, President and Mrs. Obama blew into Orlando with much fanfare to address the DAV hierarchy and dole out the political favors to America’s finest that keep them elected.
American veterans have been the victims of war crimes. American veterans are being “ethnically cleansed” by a nation that finds them invisible and their suffering “heroic” on holidays and “disgusting” the rest of the time.
Every year on this auspicious holiday for our fallen, I hear the lament of how commercialized it has become. Lost in the shuffle of countless sales events nationwide, is the concept of serving one’s country.
No sooner following its incestuous birth and surreptitious inauguration, the brand new (for those of you in St. Petersburg) VA Form 21-0958 NOD (Notice Of Disagreement) is generating friction with attorneys for Veterans. And well it should.
Remember the quintessential Sound Of Music and Julie Andrews et al? Specifically, think of the musical scale song (Doe- a deer, a female deer etc.). Compare that to the trials and tribulations we encounter going up and down the ladder of our claims with the VA.
On the offbeat chance you have to fight your way up to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) for justice, you will probably be offered the Joint Motion for Remand (JMR) by the VASEC’s legal henchmen, the Office of General Counsel or OGC.
Ever since the inception of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims ( CAVC-formerly the Court of Veterans Appeals or COVA), it has been an inviolate precept that the record is closed after a Board Of Veterans Appeals (BVA) decision.
I received a query today from Ralph. Ralph tells me he has already waited 2 + years to get his denial for bad knees and a back from jumping out of things above the earth carrying 80 or more lbs of stuff that wasn’t part of him at birth.
You get to do the “Wolf! Yo! I say Wolf-yonder! Bring the guns!” on several occasions before the novelty wears off. Chicken Little didn’t get that email and was forced to repeat the blunder years later.
adil: simple thing would be to outlaw electronic ballot. I doubt the majority of senators are truly elected. they are there just because of electronic ballot counting that is rigged.
