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.

While we walked toward the plane, you indicated No. 6, your plane, was the best. Is there a competitive edge with the pilots? A. There is a competitive edge amongst the pilots and a bunch of mutual respect. Thats one of the coolest things about being on this team. Were competitive by nature, but we like to put on a good show and that requires a whole lot of trust and a whole lot of teamwork. Q. I see a lot of people on this team. They arent all pilots. What are the functions of the rest of the team like? A. The biggest thing it takes to be on the Thunderbird team is a good heart and a good attitude and a willingness to work hard and a desire to serve. We have team, whether it be a pilot or an engine specialist or one of many other parts of the team. Q. Being No. 6, I am guessing plane No. 5 and No. 7 are the guys you have to watch out for most? A. Five is the person I mostly solo and I am the opposing solo. prise the Thunderbird Diamond. There are basically three parts where there is the diamond and the solos separate and we will do our opposing passes while the diamond does their maneuvers, and then towards the end of the show, the solos will rejoin with the diamond to form what we call the delta, which is all six aircraft in formation.

8 MARCH 29, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE Its one of the most well-known numbers among veterans: 1,000 a day. Thats the commonly-cited number of World War II veterans who die daily. Its also the urgency behind the Honor Flight Southeast Florida. vice chair, said. Weve taken 852 veterans to date. In May, well exceed our 1,000 veterans. We have a waiting list of over 300. The Honor Flight Network is a national pro gram that takes World War II veterans to see the memorial dedicated to them on the Na tional Mall in Washington, D.C. It was erected accident, a year later. Honor Flight Southeast Florida, called a hub, started in 2009. len, a local Honor Flight volunteer, is heading up an effort, Project Homecoming, to get more folks out to greet the veterans when they return from Washington to the Palm Beach International Airport at 7:50 p.m. We were talking to the airport employees the other day, and I think we scared them with our grand plans, she said. Im shooting for hundreds. Thousands may get us kicked out. A recent local screening of Honor Flight: The Movie inspired Project Homecoming. Smo len was instrumental in getting four January showings of the documentary at Carmike Cinema 14, 1900 N.W. Courtyard Circle, Port St. Lucie. She said the documentary showed thousands of Wisconsin locals turning out to greet returning veterans. It was so huge, we thought it was Photo shopped or something, or they put a call out and said, Were making this movie, she said. But, no. Thats how many always turn out for the veterans in Wisconsin. It was over whelming to see the amount of people who came out. According to a 2008 Associated Press estimate, the once 16.1 million World War II vet erans are dying at a rate of more than 1,100 a day. Only about 2 million are living, accord ing to a recent report by the Department of Veterans Affairs. No one has an exact daily death count, but the VA, AP and others have developed the same estimate by using long-form census data, VA data, and standard mortality tables. The VA estimates that America will have al most no World War II veterans by 2020. If the oldest lives as long as Frank Buckles the last surviving American World War I service man America will lose its last World War II veteran in 24 years, 2037. Buckles died in 2011 at age 110. The youngest World War II veterans were born in 1927 and are 86. The Honor Flights are free to the veterans. Theyre accompanied by guardians, volun teers who pay to their own way to care for the veterans during their visits to Washington. In addition to Honor Flight Southeast Flor ida, theres another local hub, Space Coast Honor Flight. That volunteer group also has from the Orlando International Airport. June 1 and 22, Aug. 24, Sept. 28 and Oct. 19. The Southeast Florida hub has another two more for fall.

She is here today for the She has never seen the maneuvers of the team in an airshow.Q & A from page 6Seniors outraged over arcade controversy PORT ST. LUCIE Cascades resident, James Brown, 69, said if the Senate approves a measure to kill arcades throughout the state, he and thousands of other senior citizens will have no place to turn for affordable entertainment. This is very important to se niors. It gives us something to do on the days when we have extra time, said Brown, whos been playing at local arcades in Port St. Lucie for the past seven years. Its a good way to have some free time. Youre not thinking about any problems and you just enjoy yourself. Brown was one of more than 100 senior citizens who gathered out side of the Golden Nugget Arcade in Port St. Lucie to protest the Florida Legislatures overwhelm ing support to ban arcades and Internet cafes. Hundreds of simi lar protests were held throughout the state on March 24. On March 21, the Florida House voted 108-7 in favor of House Bill 155, which bans gambling establishments. The bill was sponsored by South Florida state Rep. Carlos Trujil lo and is expected to go to the Senate and then Gov. Rick Scott before the session ends. The arcades owner, Joe Davis, a PGA Village resident, started in the local arcade business 10 years ago. He said seniors will suffer the most if the Senate supports the Houses bill. The senior citizens are who theyre killing. They have a lot of fun, Davis said. We have birth day parties. Every holiday we feed them Thanksgiving turkey. Its a part of their life. Davis said his machines are drastically different from highstakes slot machines, which award cash.

We cater to senior citizens and we do not pay cash. We pay tax es, Davis said. Every prize that is won goes back into the com munity. Its just one big circle. Were not a gambling operation by any means. Arcades around the state recently came under scrutiny after an investigation indicated the nonis operating a $290 million illegal gambling business that barely Jennifer Carroll, who providing public relations consulting for Al lied Veterans, resigned last week after she was questioned about her ties to the organization. Car roll doesnt face any charges. Davis said arcade employees will take one of the biggest hits. Davis employs 17 full-time staffers. Not to mention sub-contrac tors, cleaning companies and food companies, Davis said. We spend about $3,000 a week on food. Publix is going to suffer. I spend maybe $7,000 or $8,000 a week on Publix gift cards. Cascades resident and Golden Nugget regular Carole Graver, 74, said arcade workers will be dev astated if the establishments are forced to close their doors. The worst thing about it for me is how it affects the employees. Whats going to happen to them? Graver said. A lot of these people have been working here for years, and years, and years. They have no backup in this economy. Mariam Offenhartz, 62, of the Cascades is perplexed by the Legislatures vote. Why would you shut down a business thats bringing in tax dollars, brings entertainment to your constituents, provides jobs and supports other establishments by providing gift cards that are spent within the community? she said. It would be bad for the community. I get a Publix card and Im at my corner Publix, Im at my corner Wal-Mart. Sal Giasullo, 81, of Port St. Luc ie, donned a shirt that read, Rick Scott, Save the Arcades. Thousands of people in Florida will lose their jobs. The people who signed this bill, put your selves in these peoples place, Giasullo said. I know a man named Charlie and he comes in here every night. He lost his wife free meals. Please Rick, dont sign that bill, save these jobs for these people. Think twice or you wont be elect ed if you rerun, Giasullo pleaded as motorists traveling south on U.S. 1 honked in support.ARCADES from page 9 2703 AVIATION MAINTENANCE / AVIONICS NOW TRAINING PILOTS!
