Don't forget to recommend POST 12 here on Facebook. I know I've been called a "wingnut" in the military as it was a slang, funny term, but exploring charts, checking your compass, and more for direction can often gain help from comrades. Even a shipwreck can be salvaged for great stuff and used on new ships! Through friendship, we continue to grow the post. Sincerely, Marti Mongiello.
This is a serious Public Service Announcement.
No matter who you are voting for:
Be careful when voting.
A good friend of my cousin just finished poll worker training and she texted her this.....Just finished Poll Manager training! I passed all the classes. I want you all to know something...if you are checking in at the polls and they happen to write anything on your ballot before they give it to you to put in the voting machine...a letter, a checkmark, a star, an R or a D any writing of any kind...please request a new ballot. Your ballot could be disqualified if it is written on. Please be on the lookout for this type of behavior.

I'm passing this on...

Dear Major Mahoney,
I am happy to report that this is going into Trump's today as well as AMVETS HQ in DC. President Trump was recently our keynote speaker at our annual convention. As our Commander has stated on PBS television, regardless of anyone’s politics – we were very proud to have him as our keynote speaker. It is my most respectful hope and earnest desire to see our committee's work approved in helping you and your work. Our committee is made up of several of our board and trustee members who are veterans (https://theinnofthepatriots.com/trustees-%26-board), and one of them, Orlando Herrera, was blown upside down as a Marine outside of the Beirut barracks blast.

“The Hire Our Veterans Act of 2017 created the Hire Our Veterans Tax Credit Program for employers. This underutilized program enables Maryland employers who qualify to receive an income tax credit equal to 30% of up to the first $6,000 of wages paid to a qualified Veteran employee during the first year of employment.” – George Owings, secretary of the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs

“A lesser-known but very valuable benefit offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs is the Blind Veterans Pension. This program, which only has about 100 enrolled Veterans, provides eligible blind Veterans a pension of $150 per month. Our goal is to continue to identify and enroll every eligible Veteran who deserves this benefit because of their service and sacrifice.” – Joel H. Mutschler, director of the Bureau of Veterans Programs, Initiatives, Reintegration, and Outreach
Pennsylvania Veterans can learn more about the Blind Veterans Pension program at dmva.pa.gov.
“The Virginia Transition Assistance Program (VTAP) is the most underused state benefit. VTAP offers transitioning service members and their spouses the best Virginia has to offer. By providing peer-to-peer support through the transition process, VTAP works alongside the transitioning service member or spouse to make referrals that address their specific needs. The referral services could include, but are not limited to resume review, introduction to the Virginia Labor Market, connection with Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certified companies for employment, and other VDVS programs. VTAP serves those seeking employment and/or entrepreneurship opportunities in Virginia or enrollment in one of Virginia’s GI Bill approved institutions.” – Annie Walker, deputy commissioner for Virginia Department of Veterans Services

She is a champion of diversity and inclusion, on a mission to inspire people and businesses by sharing her story with conviction, humor, and sincerity.
With a passion for physical training discovered after joining the military, Vanessa founded Siren Strong, LLC, a functional fitness and health coaching business dedicated to empowering men and women who want to up-level their wellness.
