Veterans Suicide

After careful consideration and observation I have begun to understand why veterans are committing suicide - as it is better to die in honor than be disgraced by the Dept of Veterans Affairs (#VA) while living in constant pain !

Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day
21 May 2016

Armed Forces Day is an outreach program that began with the support of Harry Truman, and was announced by Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson on Aug 31, 1949.

Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) will be celebrating Armed Forces Day with an Army - Navy Rugby Game right after the national anthem is played at 11:55 am. Soldiers with JBLM have dominated the game with Army winning 16 - 1 games over the Navy.

The game is surely worth watching as players from the Army - Navy (as well as two Air Force Airmen) have went on to represent the United States at the Olympics.

Attendees can check out weapons displays and explosive ordnance disposal equipment. The 2nd Connecticut Regiment will display a Revolutionary War Militia Camp demonstrating camp life and flintlock musket firing.

Those seeking to travel back in time, and wish to view historically accurate battle reenactments with authentic vehicles, weapons and more are encouraged to come early for a good seat.

Participants in the 2016 JBLM Armed Forces Day include; Civil War Historians, Friends of Kilroy, Scottish Pipers, The Tuskegee Airmen, … and much more.

Entertainment with Blitz, the Seattle Seahawks mascot, as well as balloons, clowns, comedians and magicians active throughout the event !

Participating Entertainers include Henrik Bothe, Leapin’ Louie Cowboy Comedian, Louie Foxx, Recess Monkey and storytelling by Chuck Amos.

Sponsors include JBLM, MWRThe News Tribune, The Olympian, Tokers Church, Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire, Olympia Obstetrics & Gynecology and Surplus Ammo & Arms.

Armed Forces Day is truly a family event ! Don’t miss the 2016 Armed Forces Day celebration.
