Blog

 
Along with our new website, we are opening a Blog where we would love to hear from you and your experiences with your many years of Military Service...(notice I say your service, as you, along with your husband, also served)  We all have many stories of moves, problems during deployment of your spouse, bases where we lived both in the USA and overseas, and going through the process of bereavement with our families.  
 
We will continue to update our Legislative pages, print notices of changes in benefits, and post information that we think will help you to keep up with current events.
 
The first important message.... YOU MUST GET OUT AND VOTE!  Events show us a rapidly changing policy for supporting the military.   If you want your concerns voiced, you have to make an effort to let our elected representatives know how you feel.
 
We will welcome your comments on this site....tell us about your concerns, try to contact an old friend, or just connect with someone you might like to get to know.
 
Many of you will have to have your families handle on-line contacts--enlist your Grandchildren, they know more about computers than any of us!

Subject: save our veteran statues

Help save our historical veteran statues. ANTIFA and BLM have teamed up to destroy and/or remove all confederate veteran statues in the United States. They have begun a campaign of hate against U.S. Civil War history (Confederacy), our historical statues, the Christian religion, and our nationwide police forces. I believe ALL military and veterans will be next! As a Vietnam veteran, I believe history should be saved - not destroyed.<br><br>You do not have to be a resident of Springfield to sigh the petition. Please sign the petition and forward it to all military, veterans, friends and family for them to sign.<br><br>Dr. Russ Steuber<br><br>https://www.change.org/save-the-veterans-statues

I am a widow of a retired 100% service connected veteran. I am disabled and in desperate need of home repairs. My home is not insulated, I can not afford to pay electric or gas’s so I freeze during the winter and roast during the summer. My home is falling apart. Does anyone know who can help me?
