Army Captain Honored during Hispanic Heritage Month: When Senator Monica Martinez asked me whom I would recommend being honored during Hispanic Heritage month one name stood out.
Captain Jennifer Alvarez.

is an amazing leader, soldier and even better human being, whom I first met when she was leaving for her deployment.

Here is what Senator Monica Martinez said about Jennifer.

The brave men and women who have served our country and those who are currently serving deserve to be saluted and appreciated every day for their strength, courage and selfless sacrifice. As a member of the Veterans, Homeland Security & Military Affairs Committee, my appreciation for our nation’s military runs deep.
It is with great honor we recognize Captain (CPT) Jennifer Alvarez; Commander of the Operations Company in the Headquarters & Headquarters Battalion (HHBn) of the 42d Infantry Division in Troy, NY. She is currently deployed in the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield since March 2020 as the Company Commander of the unit in charge of 164 Soldiers.

CPT Alvarez enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2010 as a medic. She was mobilized in support of Joint Task Force Sandy in 2012 and assisted with recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York. She then went on to earn her commission in 2015 from the 106th RTI Officer Candidate School and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Bernard M. Baruch College. She is a graduate of the AMEDD Basic Officer Leader Course, AMEDD Captain Career Course, and the Medical Plans and Operations Course.

Over the course of the next few days I will post a video at 0800 continuing the conversation with a good friend of mine Dr. Elise Van Winkle, OSDs Executive Director of the Office of Force Resiliency. I encourage you grab a cup of coffee and join me for this conversation starting on Friday morning. At the end of the video I challenge you to call a friend, check-in on them and then challenge them to connect with a friend, family member or co-worker. During this time period of COVID we are working hard to prevent the spread but that should not prevent us from checking-in on each other and showing that we care about each other.

Regarding Covid 19. The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in the Philippines is, according to a post copied here, currently doing trials to see how effective VCO is in combating the covid 19 virus, but have noted promising results. VCO is natural and totally safe. It is avaliable to most people at a local market under a common name. Please read, about 69 hospital patients and a number of jail workers treated with VCO. These were not clinical studies but just a treatment which provided promising data. Studies have proven that VCO has antimicrobial and immunomodulatory properties. Read on as. later in this post, you will see the promising results of those treated with VCO and just what VCO is. It at least appears it may possibly help protect one from the virus. Being a Navy Veteran of the Vietnam war it appears to me this could very well help shipboard virus problems. Later working in a hospital setting I also belive it is a shame it is not being widely tried in that setting. Everybody should possibly be using this. Please read the following post. Copy and paste or forward to whoever needs to see it. - - - - Covid 19 is a lipid (fat) encapsulated virus. This natural substance when made available in the body, migrates to and is absorbed into the lipid encasement destabilizing it and thus destroying many viruses and other similar microorganisms. This process is effective even against supergerms resistant to antibiotics. MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) such as Lauric Acid (C-12), Capric Acid (C-10), Caprylic Acid (C-8), and the monoglycerides of these MCFAs such as monolaurin, monocapry and monocaprin are known to be highly antimicrobial and this is one way it may be done. All that were mentioned here are involved in what follows. Please read - - - -It looks like there is a distinct possibility protection and possibly a cure for Covid 19 may be avaliable. Governments around the world should be promoting this. --- Ongoing trials by DOST reveal virgin coconut oil’s promising results on treating, managing COVID Virgin coconut oil can possibly help prevent, manage and treat COVID-19 patients, research says. ANCX | Aug 03 2020 The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is currently doing trials to see how effective VCO is in combatting the COVID-19 virus, but have noted promising results. As trials for coronavirus vaccines are still underway, we are left with no choice but to simply wait and do the necessary safety precautions—wear a mask and a face shield, wash our hands thoroughly, and observe physical distancing. But what if we add another to-do? According to Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit, president of the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines, we’ve got something locally available that can help prevent, manage, and treat novel coronavirus patients—virgin coconut oil (VCO). The doctor has been doing his studies on coconut oil for over 15 years. “There are two general strategies against viral diseases. First, to develop drugs which are directly antiviral, and second, to use the body’s own immune system to defend [itself] against the virus,” noted a research by Dr. Dayrit and Dr. Mary T. Newport, a neonatologist, international speaker, and an advocate for using coconut oil. According to Dr. Dayrit, there are enough studies to prove that VCO has antiviral and immunomodulatory properties. Upon ingestion, coconut oil produces lauric acid and monolaurin, two compounds which have been known for many years to have significant antiviral activity. Dr. Jose Mondejar, medical director Equilibrium Integrative Health Clinic, who had reached out to Dr. Dayrit regarding his VCO studies, gave the oil to 69 residents of Sitio Luz, Barangay Zapatera. They were among the first COVID-19 patients of Cebu City in April. They initially took 1 tablespoon of VCO twice a day, which later increased to thrice a day, he said in an interview with DZMM. Within 2 weeks, 45 of the 69 patients tested negative, while 24 did not develop worse symptoms. Similarly, VCO is also credited for keeping the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) COVID-free. After taking VCO starting May 15, 7 jail workers with COVID-19 tested negative for the pathogen within a week. Three other workers tested negative within 8 days, he said. The jail has not tallied any new case of COVID-19 since. Dr. Dayrit, who’s also a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University-School of Science and Engineering's chemistry department, clarifies that these are not clinical studies. “They were invited to treat people, not to do a study. What we did was to gather data so that it can be explained more rationally. In 30 days, [the confirmed COVID positive patients] were all eventually negative,” said Dr. Dayrit. - - - Although what you just read used virgin coconut oil most types of coconut oil have the same properties and should get the same results. Please consider the fact that 7 jail workers with Covid tested negative within a week and 3 others within 8 days after taking coconut oil with no subsequent new cases. It at least appears coconut oil may possibly protect against covid 19. Consider that 45 of 69 Covid hospital patients were negative in two weeks and the rest within 30 days. One can cook with coconut oil. It does not create body damaging free radicals like most cooking oils and the saturated fat is of a type good for the body. ADDITIONALLY Coconut oil requires no insulin or bile to metabolize providing instant energy which is really good for athletes. It detoxifies the body of many deadly toxins, is highly anticancer and greatly improves nutrient absorption helping to alleviate malnutrition. The medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut oil kill many deadly viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites yet is totally safe. The MCFAs in coconut oil kill candida which is normally held in check by friendly intestinal bacteria but runs amok when antibiotics kill off the friendly intestinal bacteria. Coconut oil does not harm the friendly intestinal bacteria and should be taken in conjunction with any antibiotics. Everybody should probably be taking coconut oil.
