If you are actually homeless, or about to be homeless or need emergency assistance of any kind, you can:

1. DIAL “211” from a:

a. Land line telephone. Tell the receiver your situation and what you need. They will give you information specific for the physical location you are currently at plus any referrals you may need. They have the most up to the minute information for your specific area. Dialing “211” will get you help and much more info than this office can provide. Homeless to Independence wants you to have all the information you need to get through the situation you are in.

b. Cell Telephone – this will ONLY WORK if the area code of your telephone is calling “211” within the very same County you got your cell telephone in!

Attached to the 394th Bomb Group, 584th squadron on board a Martin B-26 Marauder, this aircraft received the reputation of “Widowmaker” due to the early models’ high accident rate during takeoffs and landings. The B-26 had a payload of 2 tons. During Major Missions there where 36 planes that would take to the air, this all happened within 12 minutes. Once in the air, they would fly in groups of six planes, each group flew in very tight formation. The planes flew no more than one plane length apart. At the end of World War 2, The B-26 Marauder had the lowest battlefield loss rate of any USAAF bomber!

The Military Skills Test Waiver program allows state licensing agencies, including the District of Columbia, the ability to waive the skills test portion of the CDL application for active duty or recently separated veterans who possess at least two years of safe driving experience operating a military truck or bus. Waiving this requirement often expedites the civilian CDL application process and reduces expenses for qualified individuals and operating costs to state licensing agencies. The Military Skills Test Waiver program has resulted in approximately 6,000 former military personnel obtaining a CDL. These include military men and women from the Reserves, National Guard and the U.S. Coast Guard. For more information and application forms, visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website at www.fmcsa.dot.gov/registration/commercial-drivers-license/military.

Find assistance as a vet, spouse, or dependent

One hundred and fifty years ago today, President Lincoln signed a law establishing the first federal veterans’ facility for disabled Civil War veterans. This facility gave root to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ assistance programs.

Today, the VA offers many benefits and services to eligible veterans and connects our military service men and women with resources across the country. Share this information with a veteran you know, or an organization that helps veterans.

NYU is offering free psychiatric care to military veterans, regardless of discharge type or era served. In addition to many other types of care, we also perform family therapy.

Secondly, we are also conducting a massive study on PTSD and traumatic brain injury. The study pays up to $530, and we need OIF and OEF era veterans (they do not necessarily have to have been deployed, as we need non-deployed personnel for our control group). People interested in the study can call 877-698-3299. Feel free to forward these handouts around. If you need anything else, don’t hesitate to ask. I’ve attached our website as well.

Hi Everyone – I hope you all are having a great summer.

In May 2013 I was asked to join the Bonds of Courage Career Counseling and Mentor Veterans program as Program Manager. Bonds of Courage supports Post 9/11 Troops, Veterans and their families. They offer a wide variety of FREE services – to help build morale and meet urgent needs involving jobs, health, families, and finances. We are very excited through a grant from the Elks Lodge # 1246, Summit, NJ that Bonds of Courage can expand their career counseling to add the opportunity to work with a mentor to help expand the Military member’s opportunities and help support them to meet their goals. This program is flexible – can be completed in person, on the phone or email.

I am reaching out to you all of you in case you know a POST 9/11 military member that could benefit from this program. This program is FREE for Post 9/11 Veterans, Active Duty, Guard and Reserve. The military member did not have to have deployed to be eligible, we have also expanded the program for eligible military spouses.

It is a great opportunity for those:

· students building a career path

· looking for a job

· looking to change careers

· someone who may have hit a plateau and are looking for new opportunities

· entrepreneurs’ looking to start or grow their business

· tradesman looking to get ahead in their fields

If you have a neighbor, colleague, or family member that might be interested please feel free to pass along my information.

Thank you.
