Vietnam Wall

This is a truly amazing web site.  It took someone a great deal of time and effort to create it.  I found it sobering. First select a state, then you can select by city to view a list of those that paid the ultimate price.  Select the name & you will view the details of the person's death, a picture or at lest their bio & medals. I hope that everyone who reviews this will appreciate the sacrifices of those who served in this war and the sacrifices they made for this great country.  Click here to go to the site.

Veterans Upward Bound Program  

Program Description

Veterans Upward Bound is designed to motivate and assist veterans in the development of academic and other requisite skills necessary for acceptance and success in a program of postsecondary education. The program provides assessment and enhancement of basic skills through counseling, mentoring, tutoring and academic instruction in the core subject areas. The primary goal of the program is to increase the rate at which participants enroll in and complete postsecondary education programs.  For complete details click here:  

 

If you enjoyed the books of Tom Clancy - you will love "Empire Rising" by Rick Campbell. It is a military thriller that I had a hard time putting down - an absolute riveting read that I would classify as a roller coaster ride. I highly recommend EVERYONE getting this book...trust me, you will not want to put it down once you start!  

 

This is a story of the Vietnam War and four young Marines. It's about fighting and killing. Compassion and love, however, are defining parts of the story. The story personalizes what war does to those who fight it and what they do to survive it. Enduring and caring relationships forged in combat are as much a part of their survival, maybe more, as their combat skills.
