We Remember . . .

You’re Home – Now What?

As tours of duty are completed and you didn’t extend, you find yourself back among those who love you. After a warm reception and a time of “catching up”, you realize that you need to find employment and adjust to civilian life. But where do you turn? Your old job may have been filled or eliminated. You have a new skill set but where in civilian life do you find the need for a howitzer operator?

Fortunately, there are a number of governmental as well as private groups that are available and more than willing to help you find a place. In the high-tech digital world in which we live you may be amazed to learn that skills you used in military service can be merged into similarly related areas of business and occupations. Some of those agencies are listed here:

 

US Department of Veteran Affairs Crisis Hotline

Planning for Life after Discharge

Transition to Civilian Life

Mesothelioma Resources

Surviving Spouses Resources

Best Jobs for Returning Service Members

Thank you for your service and – welcome home!

 

 

Whistle Blowing – – or Self Entrapment?

In today’s society Whistle Blowing is referred to quite often. Mostly it relates to government when an employee notices an act or suspicious occurrence and feels that he should report what was seen. In many states, it is mandatory; you report, anonymously, what you have seen to the appropriate law enforcement agency and they will follow with an investigation, IF it is felt that one is warranted. Failure to do so could result in a charge of “withholding evidence”, usually a misdemeanor, with a heavy fine and up to a 1 year prison sentence.  

However there could be certain circumstances that could backfire on the “reporter”.
