    like to have the regulation that covers the VA buying and maintaining â Sport Recreational and Leisure Equipmentâ for Veterans and how to get the process done Before I told you that the VA prosthetics department helps with this Well recently I also found out that the VA Vocational Rehabilitation program will also help provide different equipment to help you get back into shape as well The issue is usually that most local offices for some unknown reason donâ t like to let people know about this little secret and often times you are met with simple short NO answers Well I have included the regulations that currently govern the purchase of prosthetics sport leisure and sports recreational equipment for use by the veteran and maintained at the cost of the VA issuing office Please see below Thanks Next two months are your months so please send me some emails with information you would like to know more about We would like to hear from the readers so we can best help you Respectfully Mee igà à Phillip Cornejo Nii go osdza n Daata iiji Na a baa Presentations and Community Service Mother Earth Turquoise Warrior Presentations and Community Service

    man trying to climb out He was on fire and turning black He was reaching up like he was trying to climb a ladder into the sky almost like he knew he was dying and wanted to just get away from the pain and go up to the heavens I kept yelling to stop the track and shoot him â put him out of his misery I was shaking and sweating â I watched out of the ports as the guys held me down because I was trying to get out of the track to do something â what who knows â anything As someone laughed and said â Let that Mother Fâ er burnâ all I could see was a man turning black and slowly bending backwards in the turret as his muscles became burned and finally it stopped he quit moving bent backwards like a clay man of black char Many nights I wake up seeing this dream I sleep walk fight shout all while my wife tries to keep me in the bed and holds me down I suffer from what has been diagnosed as Complex Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder PTSD In 2007 according to the Nebraska Department of Veterans affairs it was estimated that over thirty percent of persons serving in combat service will experience and suffer from PTSD with women estimated to be diagnosed often more than men PTSD can be crippling and often make a person do and think about things that just make no sense at all PTSD can even create feelings of numbness or constant anxiety Today many service members do not seek out the attention they need but need to know that there is services out there that can help them like they help me In my case I see a Psychiatrist regularly and follow a medication schedule that allows me to function very successfully as a father husband and veteran in my community Other times seeking help can be more stressful than dealing with the symptoms According to a recent Senate Committee hearing the Veterans Administration had only been servicing approximately 45 of Veterans seeking assistance Often times many Veterans are forgotten or fall out of the system However as of April 2012 the VA and the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs has revised the system to help Veterans suffering from mental health issues from PTSD to other non combat related disorders According to the Honolulu Veterans Administration Veterans are to be serviced on a walk in basis as well as a call in basis Evaluations are to be performed that same day or within the next working day If you have not sought out help I encourage you to go and get the help that is there for you and your family as well as case managers that can help you get other resources you may need Also if you have sought out help before and were stone walled or just gave up I encourage you to go back
