A few recent Air Force photos


us_air_force_logoThe Official photostreams of the branches of military service show tomorrow’s veterans at work today.  They are doing dangerous work, useful work, and humanitarian (also dangerous) work.  Will they find meaningful well-paying work commensurate with their experience and skills when they come home?  Will they be treated with dignity at a reformed VA, or will they be frustrated with the same old disrespectful system based on obfuscation and lies by employees who have little empathy? 

The Air Force stream is a favorite of mine for stunning aerial imagery.  On the site you can zoom in on the pictures to see amazing details.

    Hello nod…I talked with you yesterday and you said you had access to getting a nexus. I think this is a letter to the board in legal terms  or something like that. I have no clue what a nexus is .Can you help me with that?    ray

      Yessir. Click on my nexus bible at the top and also go to the Blogs by Subject on the right side of the blog and click on Introduction–Read these First. Report back to me when you’ve accomplished it and we’ll go from there. Of course, if your VA Attorney wants to assure you have all this, it would behoove him to do it sooner rather than later.
