ODVA marks the 10-year anniversary of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which barred gay, le***an and bis*xual individuals from serving openly in our nation's military.

Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which barred gay, le***an and bis*xual individuals from serving openly in our nation's military. ODVA proudly serves all service members and veterans — regardless of s*x, race, religion, color, s*xual orientation or gender identity and expression – and supports the unique challenges faced by many LGBTQ+ veterans.

Oregon was the first state in the nation to dedicate full-time resources to work with LGBTQ+ veterans, helping correct and upgrade discharge characters due to DADT and also further accessing the entitlements and benefits they have earned through military service. For help, contact [email protected] or visit https://www.oregon.gov/odva/Resources/Pages/LGBTQ-Veterans.aspx to explore benefits and resources.

Afghanistan: How spouses, caregivers can support Veterans with PTSD | VAntage Point

Statement from ODVA Director Kelly Fitzpatrick remembering the 20th anniversary of 9/11 today. #neverforget

Kelly Fitzpatrick, director of the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs, released the following statement today in honor of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks:

“Twenty years ago today, our nation was changed forever in the blink of an eye. Thousands of American lives and the innocence of a generation destroyed by a single, unspeakable act of evil and violence. Even now, it is painful to remember the thousands who lost their lives as they went to work on a seemingly ordinary Tuesday, or stepped onto a plane, or ran into danger hoping to save innocent lives. The day had extraordinary ramifications, ones that very much continue to shape the lives of Americans and those around the world.

“’Never Forget’ was the mantra that emerged from that fateful day, and now, 20 years later, we have not forgotten. The reasons that we remember are many. We remember the lives senselessly lost, and the families who have had to carry that weight for two heart-wrenching decades. We remember the generation of veterans who courageously went to an unknown land to seek justice, thousands of whom also made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country — including 13 service members on Aug. 26 this year. We remember the pain. We remember the loss. We remember the horror. But we also remember the courage, and the sacrifice, and the promise of everyday Americans to set aside our differences, lend a hand and stand strong, together.

“We must not forget the lessons of 9/11, not only because of what they revealed about the world, but because of what they revealed about America. Our nation’s resilience and strength come from our ability to come together in our darkest hours.”

The Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs regrets to inform that one of our honored residents at the Oregon Veterans' Home in Lebanon has tested positive for COVID-19. There is one active resident case at the facility at this time.

The resident is being cared for by dedicated staff who continue to follow the strictest infection prevention protocols, and we are grateful for the continued dedication of these frontline health care workers.

Sadly, this is a reminder that, despite the high resident vaccination rates at our Homes, no vaccine can prevent 100% of all cases. This appears to be particularly true of the highly contagious Delta variant. COVID is still among us, and we all have a role to play in getting vaccinated and following other common-sense public health guidelines to help keep community spread of new variants as low as possible.

If you have any questions about the status of visitation or admissions, please contact the Homes’ staff directly at 541-497-7265. For the most current information about the status of COVID-19 at the Oregon Veterans’ Homes, please visit www.oregonveteranshomes.com or call the dedicated COVID-19 information line at 541-730-4344.

Afghanistan: Resources available for PTSD | VAntage Point

Active duty and Veterans should not be ashamed of getting the help they need, said Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman Ramón "CZ" Colón-López. An Afghanistan veteran himself who battled PTSD, Colón-López said seeking mental health help should be routine.

"As we continue to watch the events unfold in Afghanistan, I share the heartbreak and concern being expressed across the country by veterans who served for nearly two decades in the Middle East," said ODVA Director Kelly Fitzpatrick. "Now more than ever is the time to rally together — reach out for a buddy check. Reach out for services. Reach out for help. Thank you for your service and continued sacrifice in the time when our country needed it most. We are all forever in your debt."

Afghanistan: How spouses, caregivers can support Veterans with PTSD | VAntage Point

This is the third in a four-part series about Afghanistan Veterans and how they can get help through VA. This series focuses on spouses and caregivers, who are often on the front lines of helping a Veteran deal with posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. PTSD can alter a family's relationships. Family member reactions can include sympathy, negative feelings, avoidance, depression, anger, guilt, and health problems. Ramón "CZ" Colón-López was one of those who deployed to Afghanistan. He battled PTSD for years before his wife, Janet, helped him realize he needed treatment. He said he's proof that a spouse or caregiver can help a Veteran.

Looking for. Karen Dorgan Madarus I lost track of her Earl
Lukis Cruz Vs. ?????????? My name is above and I was the victim of an ex*****on attempt in a bathtub. As it turns out, bathtubs are rigged for just such a thing all the time. While I am not saying it was painful had I actually died, it did leave me brain damaged and unable to function properly for years. It would come and go. While I don't claim to be the best of all human beings I do know I did not deserve that. I also know that it had become widespread and embarrassing in the town of Lebanon Oregon USA. I don't know know yet how the police will chalk the lines but I do know that the "racket" diversion story was equally embarrassing and not cool. The idea that there's portions of town which we call 'syndicate" (I am not a part of) elsewhere in the USA and that spying people in their own homes and equating their own criminal bents as being worthy of judgement is beyond me. I would not doubt it if the US Court actually align themselves when they see fit with these corrupt thinkers and individuals. I don't believe the average normal USA reader and citizen endorses these kinds of people unless forced to out of fear. While back then I was aligned Republican even that seems to be sideline when considering the seriousness of what happened and that they likely do it all the time and place the body under a power line somewhere and call it a work accident. I experienced it. It doesn't happen that way. I ask that the people there allow my bills for punitive monetary compensation to go forth and prosper. I am not a liar, I am a good person who cares for all ways of life and not just my own as those who performed this evil stunt years back. I ask that the people not allow obstruction laws and court gimmicks to prevail and remember that those in control are likely liars, trying to minimize their knowledge of the crime and fear of action at the time into a joke at my expense as is apparent has been happening there. P.O.Box22282 Santa Fe NM USA 87502 505-469-8720 Please remember, I was married to a family of police here in NM. One of our sons died one night and as the evidence would show my then wife and cops daughter murdered him. I eventually figured out he was the son of another man though I had no idea at the time. Police don't cover up crimes by hiding things, they cover crimes by destroying lives and forcing slandered records. My Google profile reflects that dilemma. I am not a criminal but I am fighting back. Please have a good day and be aware.
SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO THE CHILDREN!!!!! This year, due to COVID-19, Post 10 will not have its annual Christmas for the Children at the Post headquarters.
