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 leaders 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.

On Thursday, Nov. 7, six veterans shared their military experiences to a room of about 100 at Indian River State Colleges Pruitt Campus, Port St. Lucie. The U.S. Overseas Panel Discussion was part of the schools International Education Week. If you think college kids dont care about the military anymore Please, Id like to get a photo with a World War II hero, 20-year-old Christanie Desir said to Parenti. Parenti an Operation Overlord veteran and author of A Story of Love and War: World War II Recollections From Letters Written to a Soldiers Sweetheart smiled with Desir at a dozen cameras as the young woman squeezed to him. Harvey Arnold, IRSC provost and Vietnam War veteran, moderated the panel discussion. What a lot of people dont realize is the memories of our service becomes part of our DNA, he said at the summit. Arnold did stints in the Army and Marine Corps. After the panel discussion, he told Veteran Voice its important for veterans to talk to high school and college youths. I was bored in high school and didnt have a direction in life, he said. Arnold said that serving in the military made him aware that life is limited. He said that inspired education. I found the urgency of life, he said. Panelist Pierre Pacheco, Jensen Beach, was in the Air Force from to He told attendees that military life showed him life is uncertain and friendships are important. was right after (Sept. 11, 2001), he said. It was just a few days later I got my orders. He said those orders came with an overwhelming caveat. They had no end dates. Then there was We kept hearing bing, bing, bing, he said. We were whispering, What is that? One of the sergeants came on the line and he said, Theyre shooting at us. You should probably sit on your helmets. Donna Carlsen is an Operation Restore Hope, Somalia, veteran and commander of the Disabled American Veterans Post 113, Port St. Lucie, said the military gives veterans a rare sense of community. I had the opportunity to pass it down, she said. Both my children joined the military. Other panelists were Port St. Lucies Clayton McGee, Army 1986-1990, and Patrick Conlin, Air Force 1983-2009.

Theres been a dearth of air shows in Florida for the last few months, but that changed locally with the inaugural revival of the Vero Beach Air Show, Oct. 5 to 6, followed by the annual Stuart Air Show, Nov. 1 to 2, and the inaugural Melbourne Air & Space Show, Nov. 2 and 3. The attendance was great, Stuart Air Show board of directors member Michael Roberts said. We dont have all the numbers yet. Eric Ingraham said the Stuart but found sunshine. Hes a member of the shows marketing committee. I understand our attendance was a little down on Saturday over other years, he said. But Sunday was very, very good. Martin Zickert, president of the Veterans Council of Indian River County, was among the organizers of the Vero Beach show. they did one in 18 years, it went well, he said. We didnt make a fortune; we didnt lose a fortune. We havent done all the numbers yet, but it looks like we broke even. He said there appeared to be some customer confusion about the recently-revived show that cost ticket sales. There was a ton of cars parked along the sides of roads, he said. They didnt realize the air show really was at the (Vero Beach Airport) Bryan Lilley, owner of B. Lilley Productions, helped organize and promote the Melbourne show.

Normally thered be 15 (in Florida) from March to November, he said. Sequestration canceled a lot of air shows.   Put simply, the federal budget sequestration grounded the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels. Those crack demon stration teams are the air show rock stars. Without them, tickets just dont usually sell nearly as well. Lilley said a number of organizers shut down shows rather than go the 2013 season without et buyers. The crack pilots of the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels are highly-trained and motivated combat melee except bickering politicians. Previously, Congress passed and the president signed the Budget Control Act of 2011. The Reduction, often called the super committee, formed to work out a deal for Congress to raise the federal governments debt ceiling to avoid sovereign default on previously appropriated spending. The committee hatched the idea of giving Congress and President Barack Obama a frightening prospect if they couldnt agree on budget cuts and revenue increases sequestration, automatic across-the-board spending cuts over 10 years accompanied by expiring tax reductions. Many believed the prospect of acrossthe-board budget cuts that could send the nation into recession would force Congress and the president to work toward more agreeable solutions. While some compromises have happened, the Congress and White House are still routinely locked in budget battles that brought on the budget sequestration. More recently, the budget tensions brought on the 16-day partial federal government shutdown and a looming specter: that is likely keep the elite milyears air-show circuit. Roberts said that even without the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds, the military is an integral part of air shows. Air Show), but we had military at the show, he said. Among other things, the Air Force Command Center Alpha was at Stuart. The mobile center is a multi-media promotion and recruitment tool. Additionally, Stuart had a Thunderbird jet the show.

SHOWS from page 7PALM CITY Mollys House opens its doors to anyone in need, but decided to make a special welcome to veterans, service members and their families. On Monday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, Louise Murtaugh, executive director, announced the special effort to serve veterans. The medical hospitality house will reserve two of its 14 rooms for veterans, military members, and their families. Co-founder Kevin Sharkey said that since he was unable to serve in the military due to an eye condition, it thrills him for Mollys House to offer the service to veterans. You know, they gave so much, he said. To me its giving thanks to our veterans. His daughter, Molly Sharkey, died in 1992 after a six-year battle with chronic myelogenous leukemia. Before she died, Molly asked her family to help her build a hospitality house, a comfortable and comforting place for medical patients and their families getting care at Martin Memorial Medical Center and other facilities in Stuart. Mollys House opened at 430 S.E. Osceola St. in 1996. Army veteran Alan Atwood, from Indiana, spoke at the press conference. Hes staying at Mollys House with his brother, Verne Warner of Fort Pierce. He said Mollys House helped his family during one of its most trying times. I would have had no way of staying with my brother when he was in the hospital for 53 days, he said. Warner, in an interview after the press conference, said he would have likely died after an internal-organ failure had his brother not been nearby. It helps you recover to have someone here, he said. I woke up out of surgery and someone I know was there. Mollys House hasnt set aside particular rooms for veterans, Murtaugh said. She explained that the rooms are varying sizes date different families. She said instead Mollys House will always assure that at least two rooms are occupied by or available for military members, veterans, and their families. Theyll be rotating rooms, she said. Well always have two rooms available and more if needed. Well track veterans from now on when they come here.

Their stories were humorous, endearing, and sometimes harrowing. One had children rush to hug him after hard combat. (People in Belgium) were very appreciative, Bob Parenti, Stu art, said. They called us libera tors. Others had to watch the local children closely to avoid ambushes. The kids they were one of our biggest threats, David Yankwitt, Palm City, told attendees. He was in the Army from 2007 Veterans talk about their military experiences.

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.

Arnold did stints in the Army and Marine Corps. After the panel discussion, he told Veteran Voice its important for veterans to talk to high school and college youths. I was bored in high school and didnt have a direction in life, he said. Arnold said that serving in the military made him aware that life is limited. He said that inspired education. I found the urgency of life, he said. Panelist Pierre Pacheco, Jensen Beach, was in the Air Force from to He told attendees that military life showed him life is uncertain and friendships are important. was right after (Sept. 11, 2001), he said.

Normally thered be 15 (in Flor ida) from March to November, he said. Sequestration canceled a lot of air shows. Put simply, the federal budget sequestration grounded the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels. Those crack demonstration teams are the air show rock stars. Without them, tickets just dont usually sell nearly as well. Lilley said a number of or ganizers shut down shows rather than go the 2013 season without et buyers. The crack pilots of the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels are highly-trained and motivated combat melee except bickering politi cians. Previously, Congress passed and the president signed the Budget Control Act of 2011. The Reduction, often called the super committee, formed to work out a deal for Congress to raise the fed eral governments debt ceiling to avoid sovereign default on previ ously appropriated spending. The committee hatched the idea of giving Congress and President Barack Obama a frightening prospect if they couldnt agree on budget cuts and revenue increases sequestration, automatic across-the-board spending cuts over 10 years accompanied by expiring tax reductions. Many believed the prospect of acrossthe-board budget cuts that could send the nation into recession would force Congress and the president to work toward more agreeable solutions. While some compromises have happened, the Congress and White House are still routine ly locked in budget battles that brought on the budget sequestration. More recently, the budget tensions brought on the 16-day partial federal government shut down and a looming specter: that is likely keep the elite mil years air-show circuit.

SHOWS from page 7PALM CITY Mollys House opens its doors to anyone in need, but decided to make a special welcome to veterans, service members and their families. On Monday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, Louise Murtaugh, executive director, announced the special effort to serve veterans. The medical hospitality house will reserve two of its 14 rooms for veterans, mili tary members, and their families. Co-founder Kevin Sharkey said that since he was unable to serve in the military due to an eye condition, it thrills him for Mol lys House to offer the service to veterans. You know, they gave so much, he said. To me its giving thanks to our veterans. His daughter, Molly Sharkey, died in 1992 after a six-year battle with chronic myelogenous leukemia. Before she died, Molly asked her family to help her build a hospitality house, a comfortable and comforting place for medical patients and their families getting care at Martin Memorial Medical Center and other facil ities in Stuart. Mollys House opened at 430 S.E. Osceola St. in 1996. Army veteran Alan Atwood, from Indiana, spoke at the press conference. Hes staying at Mollys House with his brother, Verne Warner of Fort Pierce. He said Mollys House helped his fami ly during one of its most trying times. I would have had no way of staying with my brother when he was in the hospital for 53 days, he said. Warner, in an interview after the press conference, said he would have likely died after an inter nal-organ failure had his brother not been nearby. It helps you recover to have someone here, he said. I woke up out of surgery and someone I know was there. Mollys House hasnt set aside particular rooms for veterans, Murtaugh said. She explained that the rooms are varying sizes date different families. She said instead Mollys House will always assure that at least two rooms are occupied by or available for military members, veterans, and their families. Theyll be rotating rooms, she said. Well always have two rooms available and more if need ed. Well track veterans from now on when they come here.
