Hospital director Veteran urges others to complete advance directive - VAntage Point

Planning ahead in the military is something familiar to all service members. The logistics of moving to another installation, upgrading equipment and preparing advance directives and beneficiaries before deployments are familiar to most.

But as these service members transition to Veteran status, they may not be aware that previously completed advance directive documents may no longer be valid.

Service members who transition to Veteran status may not realize their advance directive documents may no longer be valid. Here are information and forms.

Wednesday Wisdom: Did you know?

More than a third of child injuries and deaths happen at home, according to KidsHealth.org.

Young kids have the highest risk of being injured at home because that's where they spend most of their time. Unintentional injuries are the No. 1 cause of deaths for older children, as well, according to Injury Facts.

Learn the High-risk Zones, Parents or guardians should be on the lookout for potential sources of injury.

According to the CDC, most incidents occur where there is:
*Water: in the bathroom, kitchen, swimming pools or hot tubs
*Heat or flame: in the kitchen, in the fireplace or at a barbeque grill
*Toxic substances: under the kitchen sink, in the medicine cabinet, in the garage or garden shed, in a purse or other place where medications are stored
*Potential for a fall: on stairs, slippery floors, from high windows or from tipping furniture

Self-Care can be? What are you self-care limiting skills. I can see a few of these that I don't do. 'Asking for Help' and 'Asking for What I Need' are in my self-care weaknesses area, but I do have 'Staying at Home' and 'Forgiving Myself' in my strengths area of self-care.

Remember, it's okay to say no, it's okay to ask for help, it's okay to put yourself first sometimes, it's okay to take care of yourself, so take some time for some self-care.

If you need some guidance, you can reach out to the 181st IW Chaplain, Wing Psychological Director of Health, Airman and Family Readiness, 181st Medical Group, and the 181st IW SARC. All part of your Racer Resilience Team.

It took me years to learn that self-care is a necessity, discipline, and non-negotiable.

In fact, it’s only been over the last 5-6 years that I’ve learned that. Prior to that, I would pride myself in getting only a few hours of sleep…I thought sleep was for the birds. I didn’t spend enough quality time with the family, I would skip out on PT, and feel guilty about leaving work for things I had to do.

Not anymore. I learned the hard way.

To be our best, we must be serious and deliberate about our physical and mental health. We must prioritize our downtime & reflect on our priorities. Take care of self…so we can take care of others.

BL: Successful leaders practice self-care. They increase their overall well-being and performance. And they don’t apologize for it.

Have a fantastic Wednesday, wingmen. And THANK YOU(!) for all the birthday wishes…it’s not lost on me to whom I serve, so I took a day of leave and rest to fill my cup.

Tuesday Tidbit -- Information Sharing from My Air Force Benefits about Adoption Reimbursement:

Are you planning to or in the process of adopting a child? Federal law authorizes reimbursement for certain expenses associated with adoption to a maximum of $2000 per child and not to exceed $5000 per calendar year.

Of course, there are requirements and limitations you must be aware of. For instance, the adoption must be arranged by qualified adoption agencies or a source authorized under state or local law. Private and stepchild adoptions must be finalized in a U.S. court.

In order to qualify for the reimbursement, service members must be serving on continuous active duty for at least 180 days and the adoption must be finalized while on active duty. In addition, the claim must be submitted while on active duty and within the timeframe specified in DoD Instruction 1341.09 (within two years of the date that the adoption was finalized for claims submitted on and after July 5, 2016; within one year for claims submitted prior to that date).

Complete policy and procedures can be found in DoD Instruction 1341.9 and Volume 7A, Appendix A for the DoD Financial Management Regulation. Here you can also find what expenses can be reimbursed as well as those that are excluded.

Some "Wow" facts in today's 100 facts of the Indiana Air National Guards history

100 Days of Facts

Fact 50

Tommy John, a Major League Baseball (MLB) player, was a member of the 181st Tactical Fighter Group in the mid-60s. John spent 26 seasons in the MLB, with 288 career wins as a pitcher and four MLB All-Star selections. In 1974, John tore his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his throwing arm, a potentially career-ending injury.

Orthopedic surgeon Frank Jobe, a Los Angeles Dodgers team physician, devised the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) reconstruction surgery in 1974. John elected to undergo the procedure, becoming the first baseball player to recover from the process and successfully return to baseball. With John's successful post-surgery career, Doctor Jobe named the system after the first baseball player to undergo surgery.
