VOL. 1/ISSUE 12 FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2013 35 centsEditors note: the 60thIts approaching 60 years now. On July 27, 1953, the Korean War ended without ending. That day, an armistice was signed that stopped the shooting, but left the world perilously hanging on an edge called the 38th Parallel. Today the Korean Demilitarized Zone -splitting the peninsula into different worlds more than different countries -remains a glaciated remnant of the Cold War. Many warn that holdout of an otherwise bygone era could ignite into a consuming, possibly Wars are fought at a time when you can no longer talk to each other, Korean War veteran John Howard said. You cant really talk to (the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea). In the end, its probably going to be (another) military action. Howard, 88, is a member of the Korean War Veterans Association Brevard County Chapter, 210. He was in Korea for two of the wars three years. In Don Rathbun was an ambitious 21-year-old with a wife and 6-month-old baby. In October that year, he stepped on time in his life. Within 24 hours of hitting Ko-Vet: N. Korea still at war with U.S.By Patrick McCallister For Veteran Voice Gold Star Mothers: A club no one wants to join There are some wounds that never heal. But the American Gold Star Mothers of the Trea sure Coast helps comfort those that have lost family members who were serving in the military. On Sept. 19, 1999, a hunter mistook Sgt. 1st Class Timothy John Hodge Hodgins for a bear and shot him. When he died, my pride in my country died, his mother, Juli anne Sunshine Johnson, said. I wasnt against my country; it was just all gone. He would As Johnson speaks about her son, her emotions are raw. Between audible efforts to hold back tears, she talks about a 35-year-old who joined the Army shortly after a two-year stint at a Florida Bible college. She tells of a man proud of his service whod impressed many at his base. He returned from a humanitarian operation in Honduras after Hurricane Mitch, and excitedly called Mom to tell her about the mission to help a devastated country. Then came news of his death. Johnson had a crisis of faith. Hodges wife, Johnson said, descended into alcoholism and drifted from the family. His fa ther died not long after Hodge. I didnt know anything about Gold Star Mothers, so for the next 10 years I was all alone (in grief), Johnson said. Then she saw a woman in a the Stuart Veterans Day Parade. I said, Thats me, Johnson said. The woman wasnt Jo Ann Photo courtesy of Jo Ann Maitland By Patrick McCallister For Veteran VoiceSee KOREA page 4 See GOLD STAR page 2

Hed just returned to According to what Maitland heard, her 22-year-old son was fatigued, but excited to be home. Too excited to get sleep. He hadnt been to bed, and went for a ride on his motorcy cle, she said. He lost control and slid and hit a fence post without a helmet on. Maitland said her son, too, was a soldiers soldier, although not the best student. He was on track to miss getting a highschool diploma. When he found out that would keep him out of the Army, he doubled down in an alternative-education program. He went to school at night, she said. He worked during the day and went to school at night. He did it quick. He wanted to be in the Army. Maitland, too, audibly holds back tears as she talks about her son, a gregarious young man whod lost his father. He was excited for Mom when she an nounced her engagement to Navy veteran Frank Maitland. Buck was my best man at my wedding, she said. Maitland said after her son died she, like Johnson, felt a haunting emptiness. Her husband found out about Gold Star Mothers and urged Maitland to get involved. He wanted me not to be in pain anymore, she said. He thought I should talk with an other woman who had lost her child. But Maitland found out Gold Star Mother meetings were far away, in Orlando and Miami. She wanted to get a local chapter going. Coincidently, she was fea tured in a local newspaper article. Other Gold Star mothers start ed seeking me out, she said. Johnson was one of them after she saw a Gold Star mother at the parade. I e-mailed (Jo Ann) and she called me back, Johnson said. She said, Can you be here at the AMVETS at 7 p.m. tonight? Although Johnson was about to head elsewhere, she changed plans on the spot. Its the place I needed to be, she said. In 1918, Grace Darling Sei bold, got news that her son, George Vaughn Seibold, died while serving in The Great War as an American volunteer for the British Royal Flying Corps, 148th Aero Squadron. In her grief and resolve, she reached out to others whod lost their children in that war. By 1928, theyd organized into American Gold Star Mothers. The organizations website explains, During the early days of World War I, a Blue Star was used to represent each person, man or woman in the Military Service of the United States. As the war progressed and men were killed in combat, others wound ed and died of their wounds or disease, there came about the accepted usage of the Gold Star. Maitland said that although the organization has mothers in its name, all whove lost family during their military service are welcomed to attend meetings. Together were stronger, she said. Meetings are at the AMVETS Post 92, 2230 N.E. Dixie High way, Jensen Beach. Theyre on the third Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. For information about the organization, visit Its awesome for us to be able to talk about our boys and girls, Maitland said. We need to talk about them. People are scared to bring it up with us. GOLD STAR from page 1 (My husband) wanted me not to be in pain anymore.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE JANUARY 25, 2013 3 Almost half of our nations veterans are older than 65. VA is working to meet their needs by providing information for Veterans and caregivers about long term care services and settings. We are also providing decision aids that help with making plans for long term care now and in the future. All of this information is available online in the Guide to Long Term Care, which provides descriptions of homeand community-based services, as well as nursing homes and residential setting options. Using homeand communitybased services allows veterans to remain independent and in their own homes. Some veterans may be able to receive more than one service at a time. And, some of the services are available in residential care settings. Homeand community-based services include: Adult Day Health Care Home Based Primary Care Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care Hospice and Palliative Care The Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) Respite Care Skilled Home Health Care Telehealth and Veteran-Directed Care Nursing home and residential settings include: Adult Family Homes Assisted Living Facilities Community Living Centers (used to be called VA Nursing Homes) Community Nursing Homes Medical Foster Homes and State Veterans Homes The site includes the full spectrum of long-term care options.Five basic questions basic questions are answered to help inform veterans and caregivers: What is it? Am I eligible for it? What service can I get? How do I decide if this service is right for me? What do other veterans and caregivers say about it? The site includes the full spectrum of long-term care options and lists services that VA pays for and some that are new and emerging or that VA does not pay for. Eligibility is based on clinical need and service or setting availability. This Guide also has decision aids the Shared Decision Making Worksheet (for veterans) and the Caregiver Self-Assessment. Veterans use the guide to think about their needs and options as they complete the worksheet and to encourage their family caregiv-New online resource is vets Guide to Long Term Care optionHelps veterans and their families make important decisionsSee GUIDE page 5 U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs For Veteran Voice rf ntbntb ntntb bbtt t 1Loan program features are subject to restrictions under applicable law.

In January 1953, Operation Smack rolled around, and Rathbun was in the middle of it. A grenade exploded near him and the young soldier got three fragments through his helmet and into his skull. By March, hed be stateside recovering his speech and ability to walk. Its like recovering from a stroke, he said. Rathbun is the president of the Brevard County Korean War Veterans Association. He said nationally and locally the organization is reaching out to veterans who served along the Korean DMZ since 1953. Theyve been in harms way, some have been killed, since the armistice, he said. We do have a new logo. It says Korean War and Korean Service Veterans. Thats the direction the organization is going. Small numbers of North Korean soldiers have crossed the Korean DMZ and retreated for several decades. Its happened as recently as 2006. The DMZs 160 miles remains the most heavily militarized boarder in the world. To its north, the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea has been a persistently belligerent state plagued with constant poverty and repeated famines, yet eagerly developing nuclear and missile technologies that have kept the world on edge. In 2009, the International Atomic Energy Agency declared North Korea a nuclear state. The Central Intelligence Agency has opined that it is a massive chemical weapon state as well. The country is a single-party state led primarily by the Kim family. For decades, it operated on a hybrid and heavy-handed admixture of traditional Korean monarchy and communism. In 2009, all references to communism were stripped from its constitution. To the south, the Republic of by its strong ties to the highly structured Confucianism as it developed toward a democratic representative republic with free-market capitalism. I had a hand in freeing the country, to come from an impoverished agrarian society to becoming a world manufacturer, Rathbun said. Their standard of living is quite high. The thing I feel good about, is what I can to the country and how its built up. Rathbun and his wife visited South Korea a couple years ago. He said the people venerate the members of the United Nations forces that kept them from being swallowed by the North. Howard said reports of persistent North Korean poverty bother him greatly. His grandson served in Korea and married a Korean woman. He said Koreans are a charming, industrious and proud people who achieve remarkable things when they have the chance. With our help, North Korea would be a very prosperous country, he said. Theyre just a Howard said the Korean War likely changed America for the better. He said many black soldiers served alongside others and earned tremendous respect. That, he believes, likely translated to softening racial attitudes in America in the 1950s. Howard talion, 16th Infantry. It was the black battalion, he said. At the time, there was a lot of bias against black soldiers. I was tickled to be able to say ers. The Brevard Korean War Veterans Association hasnt yet made plans to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the armistice. Rathbun said the organization likely will. It has about 60 members. The chapter meets at the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center, 400 S. Sykes Causeway, Merritt Island. Those meetings month at 1 p.m. Now, more than ever, Rathbun and Howard said the association and its chapters are important for helping the country underished war with a dark, 60-year shadow. The fact we didnt end the war means that the North Koreans over and over are saying were still at war, Howard said. Technically weve never terminated the Korean War. I dont think thats a good idea.

Its an opportunity to honor veterans of Florida, who either reside or were born in Florida, for their service after they left the military, Bruce J. Hose, chair, said. It is not a military hall of fame. It is a veterans hall of fame for their service after they left the military. For example, recently reported on Army veteran Dick Lovi Lovisones efforts to help homeless families become Promise of Brevard. Hose said thats the kind of post-military service the council seeks to honor. Whatever they chose to do in their post-military time, Hose said. It must have been of some been done in Florida for the good of Florida. In addition to charity efforts, Hose said work in government, politics and business can qualify a veteran for the hall of fame. Dr. James Harrell, who lives in Stuart, is among the councils seven members. His wife, Gayle Harrell, is the Florida Represen tative who introduced the legisla tion that created the hall of fame.

Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. VV is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from lead ers of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of VeteranVoice. We hope you agree, and will support this publication with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, our readers and subscribers. Please let us know what you think by emailing editor@veteranvoiceweekly.com or mailing your comments to us at 1919 S.W. South Macedo Blvd., Port St. Lucie, FL 34984.
