Military Connection: Air Force is Changing Basic Training

USAF basic training

By Debbie Gregory.

The United States Air Force has announced changes to its basic training program.

During the Global War on Terror, the USAF changed the curriculum from a five week basic training to a seven and a half week program. As of last week, all Air Force recruits have to complete an eight week basic training that includes a reorganized core curriculum and an additional week of training on sexual conduct and character development.

The USAF is calling the additional training “Capstone,” and it will serve as the final block of a recruit’s initial training before they can call themselves an airman. Capstone will emphasize the core values and life-skills that Air Force officials believe airmen need to succeed in both their military careers and their personal lives.

The first recruit class began training under the new curriculum last week. Their first phase of training, which includes physical and other training, will go until mid-March. Then the recruits will begin their second phase of training in 16 focus areas, starting with core values, morals and ethical decision making. The week will end with a graduation ceremony on March 20th.

In their second phase of training, the Capstone phase, recruits will be taught by a select group of military instructors and civilian contractors. This phase of training will focus on subjects ranging from the Air Force’s honor code, to respect and concern for others. Recruits will also learn how to manage finances, balance their personal and professional lives, and protect themselves against sexual harassment and rape.

Capstone is part of a larger makeover in basic training at Lackland, after more than 30 instructors at the base were investigated for misconduct with 68 recruits and technical training students. A few of the crimes happened over a decade ago, but most were within recent years. The widespread allegations of misconduct were the result of a Pentagon investigation, which found a leadership gap at the base helped fuel the crisis.Training flights were often supervised by a single non-commissioned officer, with little or no oversight.

It is hoped that a restructured basic training, including the addition of the Capstone phase and a more involved leadership structure, will lead to the development of well-rounded and battle-ready airmen.

Military Connection: Cyber Security Education for Reservists

Cyber

By Debbie Gregory.

Cyber threats have become an increasing problem in both the civilian and military sectors. While many private companies are funneling huge amounts of money and resources into hiring and training cyber security professionals, the military still lacks the number of cyber security professionals necessary  to keep ahead of cyber attackers.

However,  there are plans in the works for components within the U.S. military to team up with universities to train service members to defend against cyber attacks. So far, six universities are on board with this program that partners with the U.S. Army Reserve to create a center for enhanced security training. The program is called the U.S. Army Reserve Public Private Partnership Initiative, or Cyber P3i.

The Cyber P3i program is designed to give Army reservists the opportunity to receive ongoing education in cyber security, through undergraduate, graduate and certificate training. The military and school leaders connected to the program hope that, through Cyber P3i, members of the Army Reserve can prepare for positions within the military, elsewhere in the government, and in the private sector.

The six schools that have joined the Cyber P3i so far are Drexel University, George Mason University, Norwich University, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and the University of Washington. The schools were chosen for their prominence in cyber research, as well as their reputations for addressing cyber security issues.

Currently, in these initial stages, there isn’t any set funding for the Cyber P3i program. Army Reservists are allowed to attend the affiliated schools through private scholarships set aside for use in the program, and through utilization of the GI Bill. But hopefully, Cyber P3i will catch on, and eventually receive federal funding. Federal funding will not only be used to help offset the costs of tuition, but also to expand the size and quality of cyber labs, as well as additional faculty to facilitate a larger Cyber P3i program.

Military Connection: Over $123M Settlement for 952 Military Families

servicememberscivilrelief act

By Debbie Gregory.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) recently announced that 952 military families are eligible to receive over $123 million due to unlawful home foreclosures. The DOJ found that five mortgage companies were in violation of the “Servicemembers Civil Relief Act” (SCRA) for foreclosures that occurred between 2006 and 2012.

Laws and regulations in some states allow for banks to foreclose on overdue home mortgages without going through court hearings, a process known as non-judicial foreclosure. The SCRA prohibits such foreclosures against service members and Veterans during a set post-service period, as long as the mortgages were taken out before their military service began. The SCRA also places an interest rate cap of 6% on these loans.

The DOJ had already ordered Bank of America to pay more than $35 million to 286 military families for foreclosures conducted by what used to be Countrywide Home Loans, but has since been bought out by BofA.

On February 9, 2015, the DOJ found that four additional banks, Citibank, GMAC Mortgage, JP Morgan Chase, and Wells Fargo, had violated the SCRA.  These banks were found to have either failed to file a proper court affidavit stating whether the borrower was in the military, or failed to adhere to the 6% interest rate cap.

From this settlement, the four banks were ordered to pay a combined sum of over $88 million to 666 military families who had been wrongfully foreclosed on.

For the most recent settlement, each affected military family will receive $125,000, plus the cost of any lost equity in the property, as well as interest on that equity. It has been reported that all  five companies have been fully cooperating with the DOJ.

“While this compensation will provide a measure of relief, the fact is that service members should never have to worry about losing their homes to illegal foreclosures while they are serving our country,” said acting Associate Attorney General Stuart F. Delery, in the DOJ announcement.

The announcement said that the military families who are entitled to compensation through the settlement will be identified later this year. Service members and their dependents should be aware of their rights to contact the Armed Forces Legal Assistance office at www.SERVICEMEMBERS.gov if they think their Civil Relief Act rights have been violated.

Military Connection: Purple Hearts for Ft. Hood Victims

Purple Heart

By Debbie Gregory.

The Secretary of the Army has approved awarding the Purple Heart to victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting.

The Purple Heart is the oldest U.S. military decoration, dating back to the Continental Army. General George Washington issued three Purple Hearts during the Revolutionary War, but in those days, the decoration was designated as a badge of military merit.

But since 1932, the Purple Heart has only been presented to service members who were “wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States or as a result of an act of any such enemy or opposing armed forces.”

While the requirements for qualifying for the award have changed, the tradition of the medal and the respect for the recipient has remained in the highest esteem of the military community. Purple Heart recipients have stood down the face of serious harm or death, and did their duty.

On November 5, 2009,  Army base Fort Hood in Texas was the site of an unforgettable attack. A U.S. Army Major, Nidal Malik Hasan, carried out a bloody assault that killed 13 people and wounded 32 others at the Soldier Readiness Processing Center. Hasan was convicted in 2013 of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. He was sentenced to death.

Hasan admitted that he acted because of what he claimed was U.S. aggression against Muslims. It has been reported that before carrying out the attack, Hasan had communicated numerous times with Anwar al-Awlaki, one of the chief propagandists for al-Qaeda.

The Purple Heart is typically awarded to service members wounded in a war zone. But the award can also be authorized in unusual circumstances, including international terrorist attacks against the United States. However, the Army declined to call Hasan’s attack at Fort Hood an act of international terrorism. This has led Congress to include a provision in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act which required the DOD to review the Fort Hood case for Purple Heart recipients.

Congress decided to expand eligibility for the award by redefining an attack by a “foreign terrorist organization.”  The new definition includes  incidents in which an individual involved was in communication with a foreign terrorist organization beforehand and the attack was inspired or motivated by it.

Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, stated that the existing criteria for the Purple Heart and its civilian counterpart, the Defense of Freedom Medal, had prevented the Army from approving the medals for Fort Hood victims.

“Now that Congress has changed the criteria, we believe there is sufficient reason to allow these men and women to be awarded and recognized with either the Purple Heart or, in the case of civilians, the Defense of Freedom medal,” McHugh said. “It’s an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice.”

Military Connection: ‘American Sniper’ Murder Trial Begins in Texas

murder trial

By Debbie Gregory.

Most Americans are familiar with the story of Chris Kyle. Chris was the Navy SEAL who was heralded as the sniper with the most confirmed kills, 160, in the history of the U.S. military. The current  movie, “American Sniper,” is based on a book of the same title that Kyle wrote, telling his story. Hollywood leading man Bradley Cooper stars as Chris Kyle.

Those who are familiar with the story know that Kyle was shot and killed, along with his friend Chad Littlefield, by Eddie Ray Routh, a Marine Corps Veteran. Kyle was trying to help Routh manage his PTSD symptoms. The Chris Kyle story continues, as Routh’s murder trial started this week in Stephenville, Texas.

With the movie “American Sniper”  playing at a theater just down the street from the courthouse, and the fact that Chris Kyle is arguably the best-known American service member of the Global War on Terror era, can Routh get a fair trial in Erath County? In fact, would it be possible for Routh to get a fair trial anywhere in Texas, or for that matter, anywhere in the country?

As if the murder trial for the killer of an American hero wasn’t enough, further drama unfolds around the hearing. Local news outlets in Stephenville  reported that a man called the Stephenville Empire-Tribune and told the staff that a bomb would go off in the courthouse before jury selection. There was also the decision made by Texas Governor Greg Abbott to declare February 2nd, the second anniversary of the murder, “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas.

Routh has entered a  plea of not guilty, and his lawyers have told the judge that they planned to raise an insanity defense. Routh had previously served in Iraq and told the authorities in the months before the shooting that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The American public, and especially the Veteran community, will watch this story as it continues to play out in court. Many Veterans will be conflicted by this case, as one in five Veterans who deployed over the last fourteen years suffers from PTSD and other symptoms. Those who don’t suffer from the affliction most likely have a comrade or friend who does. The only thing worse than witnessing a Veteran suffering from PTSD are the losses of life that occur as a result of a warrior suffering the side-effects of combat service.

In this country, Veterans commit suicide at an average rate of 22 each day. Most of these 8,030 occurrences of suicide per year are the result of Veterans taking their own lives to escape their PTSD symptoms. In this instance, Routh’s symptoms led him to take the lives of others, instead of his own.

Being afflicted does not, and should not, excuse his actions. But this trial will most definitely have a major impact on the future of how the American public views Veterans with PTSD.

Military Connection: Great Online Program for Veterans with PTSD

PTSDCoachOnlinejpg

By Debbie Gregory.

It is a well known fact that there are many Veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). For most of these Veterans, finding a way to deal with their PTSD symptoms is an overwhelming task. But there are numerous resources offered through federal, state and local government agencies, as well as through non-profit organizations, to help these Veterans cope with their symptoms. One of these resources, the PTSD Coach Online, is offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and can be utilized by any who has access to the internet.

The VA’s National Center for PTSD is offering the PTSD Coach Online as a tool that helps Veterans manage symptoms anywhere, anytime. This tool is useful because it targets the specific needs that PTSD sufferers have for addressing and managing their symptoms.

PTSD Coach Online offers users assistance with concerns such as: worry or anxiety; anger; sadness or hopelessness; sleep problems; trauma reminders; avoidance of stressful situations; disconnection from people; disconnection from reality; problem solving skills; and direction in life.

Through content and videos that help explain symptoms and behaviors, as well as exercises that help users understand, manage and improve their symptoms, PTSD Coach offers a menu of 17 tools that help treat the entire spectrum of behaviors. There are  deep breathing exercises to help with relaxation, exercises to promote better sleep, and many tools to help users develop healthy habits. Some of these tools require users to write out their thoughts or behaviors, which can be extremely beneficial in their understanding of what they are experiencing.

Because there is no log-in system, PTSD Coach is entirely confidential. Any user can access the self-paced programs and receive the help that they need.

The online version of PTSD Coach works similarly to the smartphone app, but was developed to reach Veterans who do not have smartphones. The online version includes more writing exercises than the app, and its tools can be used to help Veterans manage immediate symptoms. Additionally, they can develop ongoing behaviors and skills for leading a healthy life.

The PTSD Coach app and PTSD Coach Online are both highly recommended for all Veterans who suffer from PTSD, but all Veterans and their family members should check them out. There is no cost and no log-in, so there is nothing to lose from accessing these highly useful tools. But there is so much to gain from using PTSD Coach, even those without a PTSD diagnosis will find the program to be useful.

Check out PTSD Coach Online at http://www.ptsd.va.gov/apps/PTSDCoachOnline/default.htm or check out your app store for the PTSD Coach application for your smartphone.

Military Connection: Why Join the Army Reserve?

ArmyReserveLogo

By Debbie Gregory.

The U.S. Army Reserves wants YOU to know that they are hiring. They are looking for capable men and women, especially those who are separating from the military and have experience in hot-billet skill sets.

The Army Reserve is currently maintaining a force-strength of around 197,000 personnel. But according to Barbara Sisson, Assistant Chief of the U.S. Army Reserve,  the component is targeting a force strength size of 202,000 by year’s end.

As is their standard practice, the Army Reserve is always looking to add individuals with valuable skill sets such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, and those with a specialty in crucial fields. But right now, the Army Reserve is in the uncommon position of adding to their ranks, while active duty components from all branches are in the middle of reducing their force sizes.

To determine if they are a good fit and to get started on the process, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen should talk to their career counselors or an Army Reserve representative at least a year before separating from active duty .

The component is currently working with the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command to come up with the best way to incorporate service members from other branches. For now, except for those transitioning from the Marine Corps, service members transitioning from another branch will have to complete Army basic combat training.

If service members don’t have experience in a military occupational specialty that is in high demand, there are opportunities to retrain while still on active duty. There are also other opportunities through the Soldier for Life program, where employers provide job training at installations.

There are numerous reasons why service members should join the Army Reserve. As a Reservist, members can retain access to TRICARE health benefits, accumulate time for retirement and remain a valuable member of the U.S. military.

Joining the Army Reserve could also lead to a great civilian career. The component is part of the Private-Public Partnership Program, which establishes relationships with corporate America, academia, and nonprofit organizations. The goal of this partnership is two-fold:  to employ Reserve Soldiers, and to enhance their skills in their military specialty. The program works to find Reservist internships with civilian employers in their related field. These internships often lead to regular employment.

If you are currently serving, have recently served, or have always wanted to be a member of the U.S. Military, you can obtain more information at www.usar.army.mil or visit the Army Reserve information portal.

Military Connection: Air Force Facing More Cuts

USAF Cuts 2016

By Debbie Gregory.

 

The United States Air Force (USAF) has already reached an all-time low in its force size. USAF leaders have likened the size of their combat teams to sports teams playing with a short roster. And the branch is in danger of having to make even more cuts.

The current total force end strength for the USAF is around 485,000. There are 313,000 active duty personnel, 105,000 members of the Air National Guard, and 67,000 reservists.

Secretary of the Air Force, Deborah Lee James, has stated her displeasure at the number of service members that the USAF has had to cut in recent years due to budget constraints. Secretary James proposed a fiscal budget for 2016 that would allow the USAF end strength to expand by 4,020 active duty and 2,600 reservists.

But the secretary’s budget did not provide for sequestration, which went into effect in 2013, after the president and Congress failed to reach an agreement on taxes and spending. Lawmakers were able to provide a quick fix solution that temporarily slowed and halted many budget cuts. But unless Congress acts soon, sequestration is expected to return with a vengeance in the next fiscal year.

Sequestration could force the Air Force to cut $10 billion from its budget in one year. If this happens, instead of expanding to an end force size of around 492,000, the branch would have to cut down to a force size of around 482,000 active and reserve components combined.

The difference of 10,000 service members in end force strength could have a catastrophic impact on the Air Force. Secretary James and much of the USAF leadership have already expressed concerns that any further cuts to personnel would impact the ability to maintain mission effectiveness.

Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh has said that he and James do not believe the Air Force can reduce any more personnel.

“We are getting too small to succeed, as opposed to too big to fail,” said Gen. Welsh at a January15th news briefing. “So we’re at a point now where we are undermanned in many career fields because we’ve taken people out of them to put in other areas to shore up those areas.”

Military Connection: Obama Seeks to Expand War Authorization

Barack Obama

By Debbie Gregory.

Since last August, when President Obama authorized the use of airstrikes against the terrorist group the Islamic State, known as both ISIS and ISIL, there have been numerous opinions regarding the situation. But the vast majority of criticism about the president’s military strategy against the ISIS/ISIL in both Iraq and in Syria is that airstrikes and advisor-role personnel would not be enough to get the job done.

Many on Capitol Hill believe that using ground forces against the Islamic State would bring a swift end to the terrorist group, and liberate the territory that they have seized in Iraq and in Syria. It appears that the president may soon be making a move to send boots on ground combatants against the Islamic State.

President Obama is expected to ask Congress for a new Authorization for the use Military Force (AUMF) against the Islamic State sometime this week. Since August, the president’s authority to carry out missions against the Islamic state have been reliant on congressional authorizations that President George W. Bush used to justify military action after the 9/11 attacks.

Several critics of President Obama and the airstrikes contend that the use of these authorizations is, at best, a legal stretch. But the president maintains that he had the legal authority to launch airstrikes and to send U.S. military personnel to train and assist Iraqi security forces against the Islamic State. The Obama administration wants to get a new AUMF, with bipartisan support from Congress.

The president and several leaders from both parties and in both houses will most likely face pretty stiff resistance in getting the AUMF approved. Authorizations to declare or carry out varying degrees of war are among the most difficult issues to get through Congress. As it stands now, many Democrats will be reluctant to approve new war powers unless there is a clear deadline or some way to pay for the military operation. There are also Republicans who believe that their constituency would not approve of their support for another war in Iraq. There are also rumors of Republican leaders who would be against granting President Obama the authority he seeks.

But the president has said that he does not intend to deploy a combat force, though many believe that option ought to be available. There are currently 2,378 American military personnel in Iraq, training and advising the Iraqi security forces. If approved, the AUMF could allow the president to deploy up to 20,000 U.S. service members to fight against the Islamic State. However, the president has maintained that he is not actively seeking to deploy a ground force at this time.

Great Franchise Opportunity for Veterans

JDog use this one

By Joe Silva

Veterans are hard working, decisive, experienced leaders who excel at mission accomplishment.  And, once their service to their country has been completed, Veterans are more likely than their civilian counterparts to become self-employed. Their skill set and experience make Veterans successful entrepreneurs, especially as franchisees operating under an established umbrella organization. At the top of premiere franchising opportunities for Veterans is Philadelphia-based JDog Junk Removal  (“JDog”).

Operating on the principles of respect, integrity and trust, JDog is the first company to build a national military Veteran brand that can lead the markets it enters.  The company offers junk removal and hauling, and sells franchises exclusively to active duty military, reservists, Veterans and their family members.  JDog operators are immediately recognizable by their “military themed vehicles” and uniforms that feature their mascot, the military bulldog.

Reflecting the company’s exclusive military roots, JDog franchise owners apply military discipline to transport, sort, recycle or donate the items they pick up.  JDog also works closely with local and national organizations such as Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, local schools, churches and hospitals.  The company says it plans to donate 10% of its net income to the Veteran causes designated by its franchisees.

JDog franchisees also make it their priority to hire fellow Veterans, helping other military family members transition to civilian life. This priority hiring initiative helps answer the national call to hire Veterans, and is one more way to significantly reduce the Veteran unemployment rate, especially among those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Started by Army Veteran and current CEO Jerry Flanagan, JDog’s brand revolves around the American public’s support of current and former military service members, and the belief that those who serve know how to get the tough jobs done. When given the choice, the American public will always chose to support a Veteran business.

“The first thing they teach you in the service is punctuality, respect and work ethic,” Flanagan said. “I am always on time for every customer, respect their needs and follow through as expediently as possible. Those skills were emphasized in my military training and they still guide me. I think that people who served make great franchisees, because they apply this same discipline to everything they do. And as more veterans join what I call the JDog Movement, we all benefit from the company’s growth.”

JDog’s Joint Chiefs Advisory Board, headed by retired Marine Major General Douglas O’Dell and retired Army Captain Larry Liss, provide valuable mentorship and guidance to franchise owners.  JDog also provides franchisees with a detailed operations plan to help get them up and running quickly and profitably, as well as the support of a national brand. Qualified franchisees can also tap into federal, state and local programs, benefits and resources that assist Veterans along the way.

JDog requires an initial franchising fee of $25,000, one of the lowest franchising rates around. In addition to this affordable franchise fee, JDog is offering a limited time discount of $5,000, making JDog Junk Removal one of the most affordable options to allow Veterans to realize their dream of financial independence.

If you want to join a proven brand with a business strategy that will benefit you as a hardworking, motivated entrepreneur, then JDog Junk Removal is for you.

JDog currently has locations in Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida and Tennessee, and is actively looking for qualified franchisees to join the JDog Movement nationwide. For more information on how you can own your own JDog Junk Removal franchise, visit http://jdogjunkremoval.com/own-a-franchise/
