o America's Military History of Campaigns

"It is the soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.

"It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

"It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

"It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag."

Charles M. Province

A Guide to Veterans Benefits - By Jessica Thomas - A quick reference to available benefits vs. the complexity of the VA.gov website. Our aim was to make it easy to quickly understand what is available and point people in the direction of additional help. The U.S. military's men and women have sacrificed so much to keep our nation and way of life safe. To honor this, the United States government has set up a variety of benefit programs and incentives to help them in a wide range of areas.

Veterans Assisted Living Assessment and Benefits - This guide contains information to help you navigate the benefit programs available from the VA. Read on the learn whether you or your loved one are eligible, how to apply, and what programs are available in your state. Veterans returning from active duty face a unique set of challenges – especially if they have been injured. Following years of service and the resulting wear and tear on the body and mind, it is not uncommon for veterans to require assistance with activities of daily living. Fortunately for veterans and their caregivers, there are assisted living options that can help make the long-term care process smoother for all involved. In general, there are two ways eligible veterans can obtain assistance with long-term care living options: they can receive benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or they can apply for residency in a Veteran’s Home. Veterans who served in the active military and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable may qualify for VA health care benefits. Current and former members of the Reserves or National Guard who were called to active duty by a federal order or completed the full period for which they were called or ordered to active duty may also be eligible.

Should Veterans Enroll in Medicare? The world of veteran’s benefits can be confusing, and it can be difficult to know how much coverage you really have. Supplementing your veteran’s healthcare coverage with a Medicare plan may be a good idea, especially because Veteran’s Administration (VA) healthcare coverage can vary drastically from person to person and over time. Here, we will look at the different Medicare plans, TRICARE, and VA Medical Benefits and how they all work together.

Medicare Plans: Resources for Veterans - Explore the benefits of having Medicare with VA health insurance coverage. How Medicare works in conjunction with the VA military healthcare benefits can be extremely confusing. Our resource helps veterans understand how Medicare works with VA and TRICARE, should a veteran enroll, how to enroll, and most importantly strategies on how to maximize benefits. For many veterans, Medicare offers an extra level of protection against high out-of-pocket medical costs. Medicare coverage can also give you more flexibility when choosing doctors and hospitals that provide your care. The guide explains how Medicare works with your VA benefits.

Oath Keepers Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as "enemy combatants" in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. Oath Keepers reaches out to both current serving and veterans to remind them of their oaths, to teach them more about the Constitution they swore to defend, and to inspire them to defend it.

PatriotPost.us is proud to be one of the nation's leading advocates for our Armed Forces and their mission -- not only by providing countless Americans with the right perspective on that mission and the demanding tasks our military personnel have carried out with unfailing courage and professionalism, but also through efforts such as our Profiles of Valor, Support and Defend pages, Operation Shield of Strength and the Patriot Shop, which carries an extensive collection of products bearing official military insignia, the proceeds of which support our mission of service to our Armed Forces.

Distinguishing between Patriots and cowards, our favorite Founder, Samuel Adams, said: &"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom...crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!"  PatriotPost.us

Honoring those who risked, sacrificed, and paid the ultimate sacrifice, so that we may enjoy life, liberty, freedom, the pursuit of happiness and MTV. More than 41 million men and women have served in the Armed Forces of this country and over a million have died defending it.
