Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer50 years later Veterans to gain new nursing home Florida will likely get a new vet erans nursing home in the next few years, but itll be losing a passionate advocate for veterans at the State Capitol next month. Jim Brodie, director of legislative and cabinet affairs for the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, told the Florida Veterans Council that the state legislature ap proved a study to see where best to build a new veterans home. That was at the councils last regular meeting, Thursday, May 16. Funding for the study will be available after July 1, when the year. We were pleased the study budget was approved, Brodie told council members at the meeting. He said that a number of bills the state veterans department favored passed, too. Your Department of Veterans Affairs had a very good session, Brodie said at the meeting. Floridas 60-day legislative ses sion ended on Friday, May 3. The Florida Department of Veterans Affairs is separate from the federal Department of Veter ans Affairs. Among other things, the state department operates six nursing homes with 120 beds each, and an assisted living facili ty with 150. Steve Murray, communications director, said that the homes stay near capacity.

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. Veteran Voice 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 Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publica tion 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.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE MAY 31, 2013 3Military warriors support foundation has area homes to give OEF/OIF veterans A roadside bomb gave Port St. Lucies Sgt. Michael Burke cat astrophic injuries in Operation Iraqi Freedom back in 2007. But the Military Warriors Support Foundation recently gave him a life-changing home through its Home 4 Wounded Heroes program. Judd Kennedy, media and outreach coordinator for the foundation, said its not that the home is mortgage-free which makes it life-changing. Not only are they awarded the home, but theyre enrolled into he said. family mentoring program that last three years. At the end of the three years, the foundation turns over the property to the resident veterans. Kennedy said that so far, no veteran has failed to com plete the mentoring successfully. Thats one of the biggest pieces of our program, Kennedy said. Were not giving them a home and running away. We want to help them take baby steps before they start running. Kennedy said the foundation has another home in Port St. Lucie itll soon give to a veteran who was catastrophically injured in either operations Enduring or Iraqi Freedom, or to a widowed spouse through its Homes 4 Gold Stars. Its a two-story, single-fami ly home with a little over 1,800 square feet of living space, he said. Its three bedroom, twoand-a-half bath, with a one-car attached garage. In a gated community with homeowner association fees. Kennedy said that mortgage-free doesnt mean cost-free, which is important part of the program.

4 MAY 31, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE Cocoa, Palm Bay and about a half dozen other Florida cities. Most are cial institutions. The foundation renovates the donated properties and homes, and posts them on its website, militarywarriors.org, for appli cations. Kennedy said a selection committee reviews applications, requests supporting documentation when needed, then decides who to award the homes based on a number of criteria. An important one is local support mechanisms for a particular veteran and his or her family. We dont want to put a family in a home that would be out in the middle of nowhere for them, he said. For example, not all of the Department of Veterans Affairs med ical facilities are equipped to handle the care needs of those with spinal-cord injuries. Kennedy said it would do a spinal-cord injured veteran little good to give him or her a home far from the centers that can. Alternately, itd do a family little good to move it far from oth er family members unless its for something such as being closer to needed medical services. Theres another thing applying veterans need to know. They cannot currently have a mortgage, Kennedy said. Were not a mortgage-forgiveness program. Nationally, the foundation has given 320 homes since March 2010. Our goal is to award more than 1,100 by the end of 2015, Kenne dy said. Burke was unavailable to comment by press time.

Businessman Todd Harris understands the importance of both. Harris is the owner of two Crown Car Care locations, in Palm City and Stuart, and of Crown Colli sion Center in Palm City. He is known for his sponsorship of the Stop the Tears Golf Tournament, the primary sponsor of Stuarts and as a supporter of veterans. At last years Stuart Air Show, he gave away a minivan to a dis abled vet. Harris recently under took the sponsorship of the Riverwalk Concert Series in downtown Stuart. Less well-known is the fact that his business, which includes airbrush work, will customize a prosthetic limb at no charge. Its a smaller act of philanthropy but it means a great deal to the per son who receives it. Its just an idea he came up with. They want to put a tattoo or picture of someone they love on it, Harris said. For Harris, each of these spon sorships and acts of giving are a way of being part of the commu nity. All three of my businesses are in Martin County, he said. I feel that my success in life and in my world is attributable to the cus tomers that come to my shops. I learned as a boy, the minute you strike success, you give back, and give back hard. Its something I do and something my parents did. Christians give back. Success and philanthropy go hand-in-hand, one with the other. If you have one without the other, that one will be shortlived. Harris grew up in Illinois and he has a degree from the University of Illinois in business administra tion. He also has an M.B.A from Nova Southeastern University. His support for United for Fam ilies stems from his own history. He was adopted and his son was, as well. United for Families is an orga nization that helps foster children and adoptions, he said. Its about getting children placed in good homes. They help children.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE MAY 31, 2013 5 ROCKLEDGE Brevard Achievement Center is proud to announce that associate and Wounded Warrior, Edward Johnson Jr., received the 2012 Abili tyOne Program Employee Award: Honor Roll for Veterans with Disabilities at the NISH/Abili tyOne national conference held in San Antonio, on May 8. The annual award is given to honor a ties who has shown outstanding achievement in his or her work life. Johnson, a 1991 graduate of Cocoa High School and veteran of the United States Army, was se lected by two judging panels from a pool of 50,000 applicants. Johnsons story began in Iraq in 2006, when a snipers bullet made a clean entry through his helmet, grazed his scalp and caused him to lose consciousness and feel disoriented for several days. Five days after the incident, however, Johnson was sent back to the front lines. Over the next three years, Johnson suffered additional injuries from three separate roadside bomb attacks. nally led doctors to diagnose him with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, and release him from active duty. Re-entering civilian life was not easy for Johnson as he struggled with the effects of his TBI and PTSD. Watching him suffer at home, Johnsons wife, Serena, took matters into her own hands and got him admitted into the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic at Fort Benning, Ga. For a year, Johnson, his wife and son lived at Fort Benning while he received the care he needed. When they returned to Brevard, however, life still wasnt the same. I felt completely alone and not normal, said Johnson. I didnt want to go anywhere but my house. Fortunately, Johnsons wife heard about Brevard Achievement Centers programs and services that help people with disabilities learn to live independently. In April 2012, Johnson joined the ranks of the custodial staff at Patrick Air Force Base through the Achievement Centers AbilityOne program. Today, he is a changed man. when I returned from combat, said Johnson.

I couldnt think of anything more Harris parents, Robert and Connie Harris, live in Stuart and are also known for philanthropy. Robert Harris served in the Korean War, and his son has always been interested in veterans issues. He raises money for the Honor Flight that takes veter ans to see the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., and he worked with the Road to Victory Muse um to donate the van last year at the Air Show. He will be do nating another vehicle this year. His concern comes from another deeply held belief. I love my country, he said. Period. Harris philanthropy in one area often leads to another. His spon sorship of the free Riverwalk Con cert Series grew out of his spon My relationship with the Down town Business Association and Ron Hart started two years ago, he said. Hes involved with the approached me about sponsoring the series and I told him I would. Harris has a goal of giving away 1/3 of what he makes. He works hard, but work is not his sole priority.

8 MAY 31, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE that there is a need for additional state veterans homes in Florida, he said in a phone interview after the meeting. Especially in Flor ida where you have a lot of older World War II, Korea and Vietnam veterans. Murray said Vietnam-era vet erans are about 449,000 of the states 1.6 million veterans. A state veterans nursing home needs about 30 to 40 acres. Brodie said the states 67 counties will have chances to offer the FDVA donated land to build on. Murray said that where the proposed new facility might be built is beyond speculation until a study is done. Itll look through Florida and where we have homes and dont have homes, look at the population based on the (2010) census, and get back with us on the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 places. The Clyde E. Lassen State Veterans Nursing Home, St. Augustine, opened in 2010. Thats the latest addition to the states veterans homes network. The closest to the Space and Treasure coasts are the Emory L. Bennett State Veterans Nursing Home, Daytona Beach, and the Alexander Sandy Nininger State Vet erans Nursing Home, Pembroke Pines. The homes program is the FDVAs largest budget item. It is more than 90 percent of our budget and 90 percent of our personnel, Murray said in a previous interview. All of that runs from trust funds. No general revenue goes to the homes. through a mixture of federal VA, Medicare, Medicaid, insurance and private dollars. When Flo ridians purchase military-related specialty plates for their automo biles, they help fund the homes. The plates range from an extra $15 to $20, which goes into the State Homes for Veterans Trust Fund. For example, the Flori da Salutes Veterans tag raised 2011, according to a Florida De partment of Revenue spokesperthe tags raised about $2 million for the nursing homes. Brodie told the veterans coun cil that the FDVA now has about $46.7 million in trust, and in the last session the legislature ex panded its ability to use some of those dollars for constructing a new home. In the past, the feder al government has paid 65 percent of the construction cost and the state used general revenue for its share. This session there was a major reinterpretation of the use of trust funds to support the FDVA, Brodie said. He added, We are pleased with the new broad inter pretation. The Lassen State Veterans Nursing Home cost about $31 million to construct, according to Murray. He said the state budget ed $100,000 for the study. Brodie also told the council bills in the last state legislative session, 11 passed. He said seven were substantive, three ceremo nial, and one technical. Among the bills that passed was one toughening regulations against groups misrepresenting themselves as veterans organizations when seeking donations. One that didnt pass would have given veterans in-state tuition rates at Floridas public universi ties and colleges. Im told this bill will be coming back, Brodie said. This was Brodies last legis lative session representing the veterans department. The former state legislator is retiring in June. He politely declined interviewing for a Veteran Voice story about him. Murray said Brodie felt there were more important people and stories to cover. Veteran Voice thanks Brodie for his work for veterans and wishes him a happy retirement. Id probably still be at home sitting on the couch. But, thanks to the overwhelming support Ive received from my supervisors and col leagues at BAC, Ive been able to contribute to my family again and feel like a productive member of society. In addition to winning the 2012 AbilityOne Program Employee Award: Honor Roll for Veterans with Disabilities, Johnson has re ceived 15 commendations for his military service, including the Purple Heart. Founded in 1968, Brevard Achievement Center employs over 6,000 adults with disabilities throughout Florida and in Puerto Rico through its many programs and services, including AbilityOne.
