Just Another Day At The Office

This article by Jerry was published in Purple Heart Magazine, July/August 2016 Edition. 

It was the 24th of October, 1969.  We were on a search and clear operation, which a few months earlier would have been called a search and destroy mission.  I was an Infantry Buck Sgt. -- 3rd Platoon, Company D, 3rd of the 21st 196th Light Infantry Brigade working off LZ Center.  That was home, although we spent very little time there.  Most of our time was spent in what we called Indian country, wandering the Central Highlands.

GI Bill 

Most folks who haven’t served believe that a person who serves in the military will get money for school from Uncle Sam.  They also believe that this is at no cost to the soldier, aka, veteran.  

Not anymore. That’s the way it was when the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944 was signed by FDR.  Understand, even then it wasn’t Uncle Sam being overly kind.  Reason being in 1945 and 1946 over 16 million GIs were coming out of uniform and heading back to the work force where jobs were few.  

The country was retooling from war-manufacturing to peacetime products.  So if 16 million GIs came back looking for a job, it would have put us back into the Depression.  Therefore, if Sam could get rid of say half of these folks for about 4 years in school, by that time manufacturing could have retooled.  Further, after college or trade school these GIs would be better prepared for a greater array of jobs – not just working on an assembly line.  

State University of New York (SUNY) and most other state colleges across the country were built on the back of the GI Bill.  If you look at the seals at the bottom, you will see the founding dates are mostly in the late 1940’s.  Like SUNY Binghamton came out of Harper College in 1946.  

The later Montgomery GI Bill the troops would have to pay for.  Then in 2008 came the Post 9-11 GI Bill also at a cost to those who wore the uniform.  The worst thing was that in the 1980’s some bright light claimed a soldier shouldn’t have to sign up for the GI Bill, especially since there was a cost attached.  

Further, it violated their civil rights.  So Uncle Sam made it optional which had the result even Stevie Wonder could see coming.  Since the GI Bill now cost the troops money, many decided not to take it.  And as fate would have it, the ones who didn’t take it were the ones who probably needed it the most.

Funny in a way now the SUNY system, which was largely built on that legislation, was offering free tuition with some hooks.  One is that after graduation you would have to spend 4 years living in New York State, assuming you took 4 years of tuition-free education.  This is scary in a couple of ways.  First, it helps to take away some of the incentive to join the military.  Also, it makes me wonder why New York State is giving away something they could sell.  The only reason I can see is that SUNY’s enrollment is falling off and they are in fact biting the hand that built them.  Besides, who in their right mind would want to have to stay in New York for 4 years when they could go to Iraq or Afghanistan or someplace cool?

Taxing Enlistees To Use Post-9/11 GI Bill 

Call to Action forwarded by Dominic Fillipone, County Commander, Rockland County American Legion - E-mail:  dompf1524@yahoo.com.  He asks that we get in touch with our Congressional Representatives.

Yesterday, Congress took stupid to a whole new level by announcing a ridiculous plan to tax enlistees $2,400 to use their Post-9/11 GI Bill. Yes, some in Congress want to tax troops to use the GI Bill. It's insanity!  It's bad for veterans. Bad for our military. Bad for recruiting. Bad for our economy. And especially bad for families making a base pay of only about $19,000 a year. Non Commissioned Officers Association (NCOA) won't stand for it. If you've volunteered to serve this country, you are entitled to your education benefits. It's a cost of war. PERIOD. But our earned wartime benefits are under attack again by politicians looking to nickel and dime our brothers and sisters--as bullets continue to fly at them in combat around the world. NCOA will ferociously #DefendTheGIBill. Now and forever. We will fight to ensure all enlistees get the same benefits (or better) than we got. And we need you to have our back. 
Jon Ostrowski, Executive Director - Non Commissioned Officers Association

Volunteers for Veterans' Medical Appointments

Many Westchester and Rockland County area Veterans need a ride to their medical appointments at the VA Hudson Valley Health Care System in Montrose, New York.  Our Veterans need you!

Volunteer Drivers serving in VA Hudson Valley Health Care System Volunteer Transportation Network (VTN) can literally be the difference-maker in veterans receiving their needed medical care.  Do  you  have  one or  more  days  a  month that you could give as a VA volunteer driver? To fill this role, you must have a current, valid New York State drivers’ license and automobile insurance and pass a physical exam. Hours vary.

To learn more about what’s involved and how you can serve those who served through this most important volunteer activity, please contact VA Voluntary Service office phone: 914-737-4400 ext. 3713. 

Note:  The VTN was originally established by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and supported by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  DAV continues to lead the way, in partnership with local area organizations and individuals, in providing needed transportation for veterans seeking care at VA facilities.

Many Westchester and Rockland County area Veterans need a ride to their medical appointments at the VA Hudson Valley Health Care System in Montrose, New York.


Walls of the Hall of Heroes at Street School

From Bill Mahan: Councilman Frank Borelli has stated that our concerns about permanently removing the Memorabilia from the Walls of the Hall of Heroes have been resolved.  The memorabilia will be removed temporarily while a new wall is placed over the “contaminated wall”.  When that has been completed the memorabilia will be remounted.   

Volunteer To Do Minor Repairs 

Doug Martinez (e-mail: martinezd0809@gmail) is hoping to set up a Volunteer event from Home Depot in Nanuet to work on a veteran's home with minor repairs or painting, or work on any kind of veteran buildings - such as American Legion or VFW Posts, that need any minor repairs or painting. Please feel free to reach out to Doug Martinez via email:  martinezd0809@gmail.com


Veterans Choice Program Phone Line Imposter

It has come to VA’s attention that a phone line has been set up by an unknown party to potentially "mimic" the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) phone line. This imposter phone line may be intended to reach Veterans who inadvertently dial the VCP number incorrectly.

We want you to know that we are taking this seriously and to keep you aware of the steps we are taking..  VHA Office of Community Care (VHA CC) has reported the “mimic” line to the VA Office of Inspector General for a possible civil or criminal investigation. The phone line established to “mimic” the VCP phone line is 1-800-606-8198. You know you have reached the wrong VCP phone line when:

The phone line offers callers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card. The phone line does not state the caller has reached U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the VCP phone line. Be aware that this phone number incorrectly confirms callers had reach the VCP if the caller asks that question.

The correct VCP phone line is 1-866-606-8198. This line is for Veterans to check their eligibility for the VCP and ask questions about the program. If you are unsure if you have reached the correct phone line, hang up and dial 1-866-606-8198 again. The phone line will state the called has reach the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
                                                                                                                                                                        
Combat Vet ID Cards Available
                                               
Combat Veteran ID Cards are now available.  If you are a combat veteran, you can get this card at the County Clerk's Office which is located at 1 South Main Street, Suite 100, New City, New York 10956.  To apply for the Combat Veteran ID Card, or the F.A.V.O.R. card for all veterans, if you don't already have one, bring your DD214 to the County Clerk's Office.  

They'll take your photo and make up a card for you. You can contact the County Clerk's Office at (845) 638-5076 or call the Veterans Service Agency of Rockland County at 845-638-5244. 


This new Combat Veteran ID Card offers all of the same benefits as the F.A.V.O.R. (Find and Assist Veterans of Record) card, which includes almost 1000 discounts to Rockland's veterans, but this new CVID card has specific advantages. The CVID card is co-sponsored by the Rockland County Police Benevolent Association and will be recognized by our local law enforcement agencies. So if you ever get pulled over, along with your license, registration, and insurance card, show the police officer your Combat Vet ID card so he knows you're an in-country vet.

Assistance Needed for Local Veteran 
From Howard Goldin:  Craig Wertheim and I have created a Go Fund Me page for a 39 year old Iraq and Afghanistan veteran named SSG Nino Robivar Woo Atienza. He is 6 year Navy Veteran and is 13 years active National Air Guard stationed with the 105th Airlift Wing - Steward. When not on active reserve status, he works for the 105th in a civilian capacity equivalent to his military Job. On December 25th, 2016 Nino, his wife,18 year old daughter (who is an Freshman (ROTC) at Tampa College) and his 5 and 6 year old children learned that he has Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Brain Cancer. Nino's monthly bills are around $3,900 a month and his sick time has run out as of February 3rd, 2017. There is NO INCOME coming in. The Rockland County Veterans community was able to help him pay his bills for last month, but he is really in need so please spread the word. SSG. Atienza has filed a claim with the VA for Burn Pit exposure, but as everyone knows, this could be a while with the V.A. 

If you have a Facebook account, please share this. If you belong to any organizations or people who might be able to help this family, please pass this information around. 

For further information contact Howard Goldin at goldingoose@verizon.net or Craig Wertheim at craig.d.wertheim@gmail.com.  If you would like to make a donation to help this young veteran and his family, you can view the Go Fund Me link below:
