Linda Bryant enlisted in the Army as a way out of small town life, but it also positioned her at a pivotal moment in Army history. When Congress disbanded the Women's Army Corps in 1978, she was among the first women to be integrated. #WomensHistoryMonth
After 42 days of relentless attacks by the allied coalition, President George H.W. Bush declared a cease-fire, ending the Persian Gulf War 30 years ago today.

For those that value the sacrifices veterans have made, Random Acts of Kindness Week is an opportunity to put aside petty differences and remember how easy it is to give and show your appreciation through kind actions.
This week is your opportunity to thank a special group of men and women, the more than 9 million veterans being cared for in VA medical centers and clinics everywhere. We hope you'll all join us in saluting our veteran patients.

President Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 to Nancy and Thomas Lincoln in a one-room log cabin in Hardin County, KY. Our 16th president's Emancipation Proclamation paved the way for slavery’s abolition, while his Gettysburg Address stands as one of the most famous pieces of oratory in American history. Happy Birthday, Honest Abe!

VA math and the math the rest of us use can be a little... different. This video will help #veterans understand VA's #disability ratings system, and what it can mean for your overall benefits. For help with VA claims contact a DAV service officer at www.benefitsquestions.org.
President Ronald Reagan gave his farewell address 32 years ago tonight. In it, he provided a warning about informed patriotism. He asked if we were doing “a good enough job of teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world.”
Reagan’s warning is even more important today. That’s why I’m at Young America's Foundation We must teach our young people about the importance of freedom. And we must show them how to love our country.
As Reagan said, “We've got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom -- freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It's fragile; it needs protection.”
As veterans who have sacrificed to support and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, DAV abhors and rejects the insurrectionist acts perpetrated at our Capitol on Wednesday. DAV has peacefully demonstrated with the support of U.S. Capitol Police, and we mourn alongside them over the death of Air Force veteran Brian Sicknick. At the same time, we are saddened that any veteran would desecrate our nation’s capital and will take immediate action to initiate the removal of any DAV member found guilty of committing illegal acts against our nation. Such behavior is a disgrace to our national values and must not be tolerated.

DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Russell Leicht Wisconsin Chapter 3
Mission Statement: Fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served
We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
We accomplish this by:
Providing free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service and provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies of government.
Providing outreach concerning its program services to the American people generally, and to disabled veterans and their families specifically.
Representing the interests of disabled veterans, their families, their widowed spouses and their orphans before Congress, the White House and the Judicial Branch, as well as state and local government.
Extending DAV’s mission of hope into the communities where these veterans and their families live through a network of state-level Departments and local Chapters.
Providing a structure through which disabled veterans can express their compassion for their fellow veterans through a variety of volunteer programs.
DAV operates a fleet of vehicles around the country to provide free transportation to VA medical facilities for injured and ill veterans. DAV stepped in to help veterans get the care they need when the federal government terminated its program that helped many of them pay for transportation to and from medical facilities. The vans are driven by volunteers, and the rides coordinated by almost 190 Hospital Service Coordinators around the country.
If you are in need of a ride in the Green Bay area, call (920) 431 2641 for more information and/or a ride.
"Honor Viet Nam Vets Month"
President Donald Trump on Nov. 10 signed into law that March 29 be designated “National Vietnam War Veterans Day” to honor the close to 500,000 American troops who fought in Vietnam and, many say, were not properly honored for their sacrifice.
“Throughout this Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, and every March 29 thereafter, we will honor all those who answered our Nation’s call to duty,” Trump said in the proclamation.
