Veterans PTSD and Substance Abuse Resource - The Recovery Village - It’s difficult to comprehend the complex combination of pride, anger, duty, anguish and anxiety many veterans feel after their time in the service. Adjusting back to civilian life in the United States is a tremendously difficult process. And while some veterans sustain only minor physical and psychological wounds from combat, others aren’t as lucky. PTSD and substance use are two of the most serious, pressing issues impacting our country’s bravest men and women. If left unaddressed, PTSD and substance abuse in veterans can be deadly. It’s time to break the stigma surrounding these conditions. Reaching out to others for help isn’t a sign of weakness - it’s proof of strength. With the right therapeutic care, veterans can get to the roots of their addiction, work through their PTSD and go on to lead the peaceful, fulfilling lives they deserve.

Vietnam Nurses Website
Military Nurses - The History of Nurses From The Revolutionary through The Vietnam Wars - Today, nurses in the United States are required to have a nursing degree, but that wasn’t always the case. Women have a long history of serving as nurses to soldiers in the military. In the earliest days of American history, nurses were untrained. Many of them were women who couldn’t eke out a living with their men off to war, so they followed the troops and made themselves useful where they could to earn safety, food, and lodging. Later, the important role that nurses played during wartime was recognized and training programs were established. Today, nurses serve in all branches of the military.

Mesothelioma Guide - Veterans who develop mesothelioma as a result of their service in the military are entitled to benefits and assistance from the U.S. government. Veterans make up the largest group of people diagnosed with mesothelioma because asbestos was so widely used by the military. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are entitled to disability compensation, pension and/or medical benefits through the VA. Surviving spouses and dependents may also qualify for compensation from the VA. Learn how you and your family can get access to these benefits with our free Veteran's Support Guide.
MesotheliomaHelp.Org For Veterans  -  Asbestos is the name given to six minerals with long, thin fibers found naturally in rocks and soil. They have been used in a wide range of military products for many decades. When these fibers are inhaled or ingested, they can cause serious asbestos-related diseases. Mesothelioma is one of them. Veterans make up approximately 30 percent of ALL U.S. cases of mesothelioma and veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of active duty are entitled to benefits from the federal government. For more formation, download the free handbook, A Patient's Guide to Mesothelioma.
Merchant Marine Act/Jones Act - One of the most important provisions of this law is to maintain the rights of seamen on duty and to protect them in the case of injury while working. The Act mandates that seamen must be provided with adequate and reasonable food, shelter, and medical care while working aboard a maritime vessel. Employers are also expected to provide care for seamen injured on the job, whether from negligence or unseaworthiness. If that is not provided the seaman has the right, according to the Jones Act, to file a claim for damages.
Veteran Guide To Starting and Owning A Business - In addition to protecting our freedom at home and abroad, U.S. veterans are returning home and strengthening our economy. In fact, 10% of all small businesses in the United States are launched and run by veterans. This site has a very comprehensive list of linked resources for veterans wishing to have their own business.

The History of Military Automotive Vehicles - Today, it would be unthinkable for a major military operation to occur without the use of trucks, armored personnel carriers, tanks, and other vehicles. Their ability to support troop movements, travel over difficult terrain, and haul tons of supplies makes them invaluable to any army, but it is only within the past 100 years that these vital pieces of machinery have been used during times of war.
