Pastor Jay Bergstresser said that his church Lutheran Church of the Resurrection of Cocoa Beach didnt set out to help these homeless veterans when it started its bicycle ministry about three years ago. But, the nineyear Navy veteran said hes been pleased that it has. We do get a lot of veterans, he said. All different life stories and situations.

Timothy and Mark Noegel run the ministry with a handful of volun teers, but, Timothy said, Nobody has titles. It had an unexpected start. Originally the church had a basic car-care ministry to help folks who went to the church for food and other assistance. We would add oil to their engine if they needed it, antifreeze and air their tires if they wanted, Timothy said. We did that for six months or so. We had more and more homeless people whose only transportation was bicycles. Those folks would ask for a bit of tire pressure, and some lube on their chains. Bergstresser, who served as a chaplain to Marines in Operation recognized telltale signs of mili tary training among the bicycling homeless others might miss. A lot of them come in here and they have their packs neatly packed, he said. Its like theyre to survive out there. Since hes seen the pain of comthe ministry.

Some, he said, need much more care and compassion not just from churches, but from everyone. I think some of them get back and just want to forget the pain, he said. Timothy said that because the bicycle ministry doesnt ask questions, its hard to know what percentage of its custom ers are veterans. However, he knows that one of the homeless who gives his time to help repair bikes is. He is local in the area, Tim othy said. Hes been around bicycle stuff as long as we had it. He started out as a custom er there, and now he helps us with repairs. Timothy said the church can always use a helping hand in its bicycle ministry. The thing we need the most is donations of bicycles, he said. Typically we need bikes. Even if it looks like junk, theres always parts we can take off for another bike. And volunteers are welcome, iation. The bicycle ministry operates from 10 a.m. to noon Causeway. Bergstresser said hes always up to counseling with any vet erans regardless of their faith, or lack of it. Religiously-neutral listening and counseling was part of his military training. I think theres a lot of evil in the world; theres a lot of bad, he said. I think the way through is to show (others) love. He added, Some of the Marines I was best friends with told me, Look, I dont believe anything, or I dont know that.

6 FEBRUARY 8, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE said information about the number of Florida veterans working at Walmart was impossible to gather before press time. Odaly Victorio communications coordinator at Workforce Solutions, applauded Walmarts commitment to hire more vet erans. She said companies too often dont fully understand veterans job skills. A lot of the time employers dont realize the assets that veter ans bring to the table, she said. They understand rules, regulations and procedures. She said Walmart stores in the Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee, and St. Lucie counties might have more competition hiring veterans than they expect. Last August, Workforce Solutions launched its 100 Heroes in 100 Days veterans-employment camthrough the campaign. At the time, it was estimated looking for work in the four-coun ty area. Victorio, however, said many area employers are responding to programs such as 100 Heroes and the states Hiring Floridas Heroes. That program and National Guard members At the time Hiring Floridas Heroes was launched, the unemployment rate for the states vet erans was slightly lower than that of the general population. How ever, the Florida National Guard of soldiers and airmen returning from deployments in Operation Enduring Freedom were looking for work. The governor announced Hiring Floridas Heroes at the Florida National Guard Day at the Capi regional workforce boards that operate under the states Department of Economic Opportunity. According to the military-fo cused newspaper Stars and Stripes, while overall veteran unemployment is lower than the national average, newer veterans civilian job market. It reports that Iraqand Afghanistan-era veterAdditionally, the paper reports duty troops left the services in pressure for younger veterans. Buchanan said veterans need not wait until Memorial Day to apply at Walmart. (At) theres a section for veterans, she said. That indicates to man agement when theyre looking at (their) application that they are veterans. It is a priority status. At the BIG Show, Simon urged other retailers to join Walmart in making commitments to hiring veterans. Imagine what retail could do together, said Simon in a press release. We could leave an incredible legacy as an industry. We can be the ones who step up for our heroes. And we can do this now.WALMART from page 1 WASHINGTON, D.C.

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 or mailing your comments to us at 1919 S.W. South Macedo Blvd., Port St. Lucie, FL 34984. OUR MISSION STATEMENT AND OUR OBJECTIVE 1971 SUBSCRIBE TODAY!!!
