VOL. 1/ISSUE 43 FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2013 35 cents The Treasure Coast has been missing about a hundred faces since November. Theyre home now with big smiles. On Friday, Aug. 23, the Florida National Guards 806th Military Police Company returned home from a deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The company is stationed in Fort Pierce. It was the companys second deployment to Afghanistan. It was also deployed in 2004 to 2005. Staff Sgt. Andres Moreira Jr. was in both deployments. He said deploying is something a soldier never starts liking. One really never looks forward to going back, he said. For the most part, it was nerve-racking. You can do all the training in the world, but when youre expecting the unexpected thats very scary. Not knowing if youll come home the same way, in one piece, thats very scary. Moreira is back home just in time for his daughter, Autumn, to start high school. Scaring off guys is what Ill be doing, he said. His son Alex is starting his last year of elementary school. The 33-year-old joined the guard back in 1998, shortly after high school. I was in (Army Junior ROTC) in high school, Moreira said. Going through ROTC in high school, you tend to have a respect for the military. Staff Sgt. Jose Angulo also lives in Port St. Lucie. Hes been in the National Guard for 12 years. This was his second deployment to Afghanistan, too. There were big differences between the two de ployments for him. Back in 2004, he had a friend named Amy. When I came home, we started dating, Angulo said. When he got his boots back on Florida this time, Angulos wife was waiting for him. It was a big change for her, he said.

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, readers and subscribers.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE AUGUST 30, 2013 3 Veterans in Fort Pierce have some new digs. On Friday, Aug. 23, the West Palm Beach Depart ment of Veterans Affairs Medical Center had the grand opening for St. Lucie Countys new Commu nity Based Outpatient Clinic. The clinic is at 1901 South 25th Street, suite 103. Dr. Darin Rubin, chief of prima ry care at the West Palm VAMC, said the new 9,100-square-foot facility will greatly improve many services to area veterans. It increases our mental-health facility, he said. Fort Pierces old CBOC, 727 North U.S. Highway 1, was about 8,400 square feet. The VA used that facility for 15 years. Jeffrey Lambert is national medical di rector for MedMark, the company the VA contracts with to run the Fort Pierce CBOC. When Veteran Voice asked him how the new facility would improve area veter ans medical services, he replied Fort Pierce gets new VA digs Patrick McCallisterFOR VETERAN VOICEpatrick.mccallister@yahoo.com See CBOC page 5 5393

This time she had to go through it in the front seat. That made things different for him, too. Last time, my parents took care of everything, Angulo said. This time, I had to get involved and worry about my wife, worry about my house. The 806 was overseeing detainees this time around. Last deployment, it provided force protection. First deployment, we were protection for a civil affairs unit, Moreira said. That took the company to Afghan villages last deployment. This time around, they didnt have much interaction with lo cals. The 806 was designated an internment resettlement company in 2009. Moreira said most on the last deployment werent around last time. The biggest difference between the deployments for him? Rank, age, and responsibility, Moreira said. Angulo said he dreaded separation from Amy this deployment, but he was looking forward to putting his training to practice. I was excited, because Im in a different part of my career and Im leading troops, he said. th Photo courtesy ments. Photo courtesy 806TH from page 1 See 806TH page 11

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE AUGUST 30, 2013 5 with a question. Have you visited the old facility? he said. We have much more room here, Lambert said. The VA put much more equipment here. Mayor Linda Hudson said shed visited the old location with family members receiv ing care. She said it had parking shortages and obvious signs of building aging. Im going to miss the old spot, but I know you will not miss the old spot, she told veterans gathered for the grand opening. Rubin said the Fort Pierce CBOC has about 5,100 pa tients. Its hovered around that number for a few years. Most are Vietnam-era veterans. He said the move helped the West Palm VAMC tailor equipment to the needs of that age group. Vietnam is one of the groups were targeting to come to our clinics and medical centers, Rubin said. To receive care at VA medical facilities, veterans must enroll. Those who served in the Vietnam-era are among to many. The youngest Vietnam-era veterans are now in their late 50s. Most are in their 60s to early 70s. The Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, a state agency nam-era veterans are the largest group in the Sunshine State. Of Floridas 1.6 million veterans, about 500,000 served during the Vietnam era. While the overall population of veterans is declining, Rubin said VA demographers predict the Treasure Coast will see a growing population of Vietnam-era veterans over the next decade. This area up here, St. Lucie County, the VA projects will be an area of growth, he said. One of the services expanded by the opening of the new, larger clinic is telehealth. Rubin said more St. Lucie patients will be able to visit with specialists at the West Palm VAMC, and from all over the country, with out having to drive out of town. It allows our veterans to get treatment in their own community, he said. than 60,000 veterans live in the West Palm VAMCs area Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River counties. It has six CBOCs. In addition to Fort Pierce, there are VA outpatient clinics in Vero Beach, Stuart, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Okeechobee. Among those at the open house was Congressman Patrick Murphy, FL-18. He told attendees that his district, which stretches from Fort Pierce southward to Palm Beach, is in the top 50 with veterans populations. If there is anything you think the VA could be doing better, should be doing better, let us know, he said. There are about 40 CBOCs in Florida. thCBOC from page 3Vietnam is one of the groups were targeting to come to our clinics and medical centers.

6 AUGUST 30, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE Be careful when giving to veterans charities This article is with refer ence to the various bogus charitable organizations who profess to be helping the military veterans. I am a WWII veteran and have been very involved with many vet eran groups. With the American Legion, I was a post commander, division commander and a county commander. With the VFW, I Disabled American Veterans, I was a chapter commander. I also served on, the advisory board to the director of the Northport Vet erans Medical Center and on the Board of Directors for the Home less Veterans in Long Island, N.Y. I believe I can speak from expe rience the people who really help the military veterans and those that are questionable. The U.S. Veterans Adminis tration is the prime provider for our military veterans. Even with the constant budget cuts, which unfortunately does affect the services provided, they do a good job. There are many truly sincere veterans groups who do help the veterans adjust to civilian life and walk them through the Veterans nizations such as the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, the Korean War Veterans, the Vietnam War Veterans, the AMVETS, Catholic War Veterans and Jew ish War Veterans. There may be others but these organizations as a matter of record have prov en themselves to truly help the veterans. My concerns are the bogus organizations who legally get a erans as pawns to collect money so they can create a lucrative job for themselves. These organiza tions use the same advertise ment technique to lull the public with sympathy. For example, to list those who use emotions on the TV media: Save The Chil dren of the World TV $19 per month, Save The Dogs TV $19 per month, Save The Polar Bear TV $8 per month, Save The Tiger TV $8 per month, Salute to American Heroes TV donations Hospital Veterans Organizations TV Donations, Disabled Veterans Foundation Wearing BDU: uniforms on street corners, and the most advertised on TV and Magazines, The Wounded Warrior $19 per month. It is to be noted when The Wounded Warrior program airs an ad on TV, it leads you to be lieve they have programs which help the veterans. This is far from the truth. When the narrator supposedly describes the programs, which is never in detail or clear, what you see in the background is the rehabilitation scenes from the Veterans Administration medical centers. This is deception. They pay or they help a few, very few, veter ans to give testimony of receiving help. This is how they dupe the public with its million-dollar false advertisement. They even got celebrities to endorse their false mission. After they stimulate the publics emo tions, they ask for a $19-permonth donation. To validate what I am saying, I wish to quote a columnist called Eve Samples of Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers, Dec. 6, 2012, which exposes the operations of the Wounded Warrior organization.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE AUGUST 30, 2013 7 year. It spent money on salaries and travel. It used it to pay consultants and other outside vendors. But not a penny went towards veterans pay their bills. This was a major point of contention for Major James Pollock, who was deployed twice to Iraq and could not make ends meet after his honorable discharge from the Air Force in 2008. When Pollock didnt know where to turn, he looked for help from the Wounded Warrior Proj ect, one of the most recognized names in veterans charities. Instead of helping him, the This is a typical example of the Wounded Warrior Project helping veterans. It is to be noted Wounded Warrior Project. The salaries range from $319,692 (the executive director) to $63,000. be found on the computer. These questionable organizations who use children or animals and especially veterans to dupe the public must be closely scru tinized to protect the public and the honor of the true charitable organizations. I beg the true veteran organi zations such as the American Legion, VFW, DAV, Korean War Vets, Vietnam Vets and the other mentioned organizations, along with the Veterans Administration to please get involved in exposing the corrupt charitable organizations. Also I hope our legislators take a close look at our present charitable laws and purge them of any loopholes.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE AUGUST 30, 2013 11 Both said that there are many differences in Afghanistan since 2005. Some things, however, are the same. The weather, for in stance. It was cold when we got there, Angulo said. It was snowing. Then it was bitter cold. Then it got hot. Really hot. Operation Enduring Freedom Afghanistan is Americas longest military engagement, depending on how historical engagements are measured. Some military historians hold that Vietnam was longer, noting the presence of U.S. military personnel in Viet nam going back to the 1950s. However, most count the Vietnam War from when Congress passed the Tonkin Gulf Resolution in 1964 to the withdrawal of ground troops in 1973. OEF Afghanistan started in October 2001, shortly after the massive terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 that year. The Florida Nation al Guard reports that more than 17,000 members have deployed in support of federal mobiliza tions over the last 12 years. Moreira said Afghan society seems weary of the war. I think theyre ready to start their own lives and move on, he said. The United States has progressively pulled back from combat operations and shifted to training Afghan forces. President Barack Obama has worked toward a 2014 exit of American forces from Afghanistan, but has left open the possibility of remaining longer. Last time, we didnt work with the Afghan national army, Angulo said. This time we worked closely with them. Moreira and Angulo offered tips to the community about the returning guard members. Both said little displays of support and gratitude for their service mean a lot. Both also said that its help ful when friends, co-workers, neighbors and others are willing to listen, but not pushy about talking to guard members about their deployments. The one thing I can tell you not to do is ask if we shot anybody, Moreira said. Believe it not, that question came up a lot after the last deployment. 806TH from page 4 5424 OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 9AM TO 5PM Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum 6600 Tico Road, Titusville, FL 32780 Special Event Venues Available $1.00 OFF ADMISSION WITH THIS AD 3 Display Hangars Over 30 Aircraft Memorabilia Free Guided Tours Gift Shop C-47 Plane Rides Canteen $1.00 OFF Admission Cannot be combined with other offers.
