anyone still around from HHC 9th Logistical Command ?
First off I thank you all for your services, your all beautiful and appreciated.
I am posting this help to at least share on your Facebook or other means you have, or even Donate if able to.
I am in Cleveland Ohio and trying to help a member in my Facebook group who served in USCG in the 80's
His name is John Halfacre 51 years old and John and his wife Lisa bought a nice used Jeep in August 2013 and just last month February 2014 the veterans administration helped by putting a scooter ramp on the jeep.
1 month later this past Saturday March 15 2014 it was all stolen from them.
Thugs in Cleveland stole their Jepp with the new ramp the VA had just installed and he needs it to get to the Dr appointments he has.
The Fox news story is here http://fox8.com/2014/03/25/heartless-man-cant-leave-home-after-jeep-stol...
I have set up a GoFundMe donation fund to help Lisa and John get another Jeep and Ramp.
That link to the fund raiser is here: http://www.gofundme.com/7t4hv0?preview=1
All I am asking is if your able to donate to help them, if not at least post the link to Facebook friends and other groups you belong to and friends.
One dollar adds up and I am trying my best to help. Hope you will also.
I attached what used to be their means of transportation showing the ramp they installed in February 2014
My father served in the air force during the Vietnam War and has suffered from Agent Orange Diabetes but we need help finding his records. His records show he was in South East Asia but doesn't specify where.
He served on Operation College Eye Task Force which was stationed in Korat, Thailand during Jan-July 1970 (With the 552 AEWNC). He was a flying crew chief.
We need to find a copy of his troup movement orders and pay records.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find this for him?
Thanks in advance,
Father: John L. Ives, Jr.
Graywolf Survival is at http://graywolfsurvival.com. "Graywolf" is an Army Veteran, and I found his website on a list of Best Survival Sites, and from the information found there, I'd agree that Graywolf has a great survival site that is very informative and well written. I asked Graywolf to tell me something about himself, and this is his story:
Need to prove I was on the grounds in Vietnam. Served as crew chief with the 70th Aviation Detachment 68-69. Never received TDA because where the plane went I went. Was on the grounds in Cu Chi and monthly and sometimes twice monthly in Long Than North and Saigon. Submitted this info and my DD214 which contains medals info about Vietnam service. Received personnel records for my unit, and my financial history from DFAs which shows I received HFP.
Tried to locate members of my unit but they are dead. Any other suggestions?
Attention fellow veterans and those still serving:
I am an independent filmmaker who is compiling information for a documentary concerning PTSD and our struggles with life after the military. I would love to hear all of your stories and tribulations involving living with PTSD, the events that could be tied to PTSD, life after the military and the struggles with ‘civilian’ life (if separated).
