    For The War Veterans

    <br>
    L'Hotel National des Invalides, more commonly known as Les Invalides, is a prominent structural complex in Paris, France. It was originally built as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans. mtmary.edu - http://www.mtmary.edu/admissions/veterans/index.html The Musee de l'Armee was established after the merging of the Museum of Artillery and Historical Museum of the Army. The museum prides itself for its collection of weapons, uniforms and banners, armors and paintings and covers the military history from the middle ages to the early 20th century. Other museums are in Les Invalides are: the Musee des Plans-Reliefs and the Musee de l'ordre de la Liberation. The former contains detailed military maps and models of fortified cities and fortresses and the latter was created to recognize France's liberty and exhibits more than three thousand artifacts.<br>

    You know, there are some companies which only hire combat veterans. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me, especially as many soldiers are coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq, and it's hard for them to get work. Further, many folks don't understand their brashness, or take charge attitude. Folks in the United States have become quite weak, and with all this groupthink and playing patty-cake in committees and meetings at our largest corporations they just don't understand these returning veterans. Okay so, let's talk about this for second shall we? Not long ago, I was talking to an Army Ranger who was on disability after serving several tours, he also had tore up his shoulder while in training doing sparring but he was still as tough as they come.<br>

    It turns out, that there have been folks who have tried to file lawsuits with companies which only hire military veterans because they say that is discrimination. It's amazing the amount of laws we have confining and regulating human resources and employment in this country. cpcc.edu - https://www.cpcc.edu/testing_assessment/college-level-examination-progra... Certainly companies which only hire veterans - https://En.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Fictional_war_veterans of the military can solve this problem using the free market. However once we get lawyers involved, they're damned if they do, and damned if they don't. Some of these folks coming back are quite aggressive, and they may even have PTSD issues. In any case, it was great to talk to someone who has served this great nation of ours, and to get his personal perspective on this. I thanked him for the service to our great country; and he said; "you are welcome it was my pleasure." Indeed, at this point I must say I agree with him about the challenges here, and applaud his exemplary service. I thought you should know. nih.gov - https://Www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26299275 Please consider all this and think on it.<br>

    Not long ago, I had an interesting email conversation with a traumatic brain injury survivor and he reminded me of the importance of supporting our men and women who have been injured in serving our country. Indeed, we should all support our military veterans in their time of need. There are many Iraq Conflict soldiers and marines coming back with injuries from shrapnel - caused by IEDs. The other night I listened to a passionate speaker on Coast-to-Coast AM talk radio about helping Soldiers from Iraq with injuries recoup. We must take these issues seriously and all of us must support our troops. Coming from a military family myself, I very much agree with their passion, mission and strength of character, it is exactly what folks who go through hell need to hear - we care and we will be here for you.<br>
    <br>
    <br>

    <br>
    Many of these folks survive their injuries and go on to do great things, as that which does not kill us makes us stronger - adversity builds character. Shouldn't we match their character and support them? I sustained an open skull fracture with right frontal lobe damage and remained in a coma for 3 weeks, I underwent brain and skull surgery after waking from the coma. Today this real life brain injury survivor is helping others get through their tough times, and he shows us just how important it is for us to support our troops coming home who have injuries. His motto is so befitting and is a testament of his will to survive and thrive, we owe it to ourselves to keep his vision alive.<br>

    Iconic Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe had occasions of plunging into almost immortal eloquence in most of his writings. One such lucid moment is captured in his all-time classic, Things Fall Apart, which, to a huge extent, now mirrors happenings in Zimbabwe’s ruling party, Zanu PF. Things have been falling apart at an unprecedented rate in the last few months and worse times could be ahead. The internecine fights just won’t end. Events of the last few days bear testimony to this self-evident truth. Achebe, drawing from his native Nigerian language, quotes a proverb that aptly describes an unusual state of affairs in the context. In a nutshell, what this means is that when an unexpected phenomenon becomes commonplace, then something would have gone wrong, terribly so.<br>
    <br>
    <br>

    <br>
    It’s something akin to a nocturnal bird, the owl, hovering above heads in sunshine. It speaks to something definitely wrong. Happenings in the ruling party have assumed a similar turn. The toad is leaping in the glare of daylight and the owl is perching on a twig in full view of children at 12 midday; things are not well. War veterans, who, for a long time, formed the backbone of President Robert Mugabe’s rule, having been instrumental in the liberation struggle itself to executing the chaotic land reform are up in arms with their previously unquestioned leader. It was unthinkable that anyone in Zanu PF could openly contradict Mugabe on any matter.<br>
