So, I was asked to find an electrician in El Paso for a job in the northeast - amazingly, a search of SAM and the SBA data bases showed few active Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB's). Business owners that complain that they cannot get help for their business and yet they do not register their business on the most important data bases are missing out. If you want to expand your business in a down economy, you MUST stand up and step forward to be seen and heard.

I remember. These are my thoughts, reflecting on the meaning of Memorial Day.
I have been working with homeless Veterans and Veterans in need for some time now. Holidays are always a stressful time for many people - the happiness enjoyed by others may not come into the lives of the homeless or our less fortunate friends and neighbors. The best way that we can help others in need is to BE THERE - do a "buddy" check - call a friend or family member that you have not spoken to in a while and bring along a smile for them - let them know that you care about them - it is well and good to memorialize the loss of those that gave all for the freedoms that we enjoy today but let us not forget that there are many Veterans, too many Veterans, that struggle every day just to survive - BUDDY CHECK - I am ok - how are YOU?
Today marks the beginning of a millennia old tradition - the lighting of the first candle in celebration of the Festival if Lights known as Hunukkah - in the spirit of the holiday season I wish for my Jewish friends: May this Festival of Lights bring blessing upon you and all of your loved ones for Happiness and Health. Shalom!
Tis the season - winter solstice - Hanukkah - Christmas - renewal of the soul and nature - From my house to your house - may you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season.
It is such a sad and tragic event that has happened. A family is mourning the loss of Jose Manuel Clemente and his daughter who were killed in Monday's 25-vehicle crash near Lordsburg. Please consider helping Mrs. Clemente and her son as they must begin preparations to lay to rest their loved ones. This GoFund Account will assist with immediate funeral expenses, and future medical expenses for the 3 El Paso survivors. You can comment without donating! Please share the family's campaign to assist the surviving members of this tragic accident.
