The article does not go into detail on how vets would apply, etc but more and more home owners are joining the solar net as you can now install a system for a fraction of the cost just a few years ago!
The jobs training program is among a host of initiatives the White House says will cut carbon dioxide emissions by more than 300 million tons through 2030, plus save billions of dollars on energy bills for homeowners and businesses. It will launch this fall at one or more military bases and train a total of at least 50,000, including veterans.
I am reading this Book now and can’t put it down! Wondering as I read about where the line between fact and fiction lies (or Faction as Cindy Sheehan calls it in her review excerpted below.
The Lone Gladio was released on September 11, 2014 and it’s factional recounting of the suppression of the events that led to such a disaster and horrendous aftermath is so important because after 13 years, many, many people are still dying and being tortured for the lies and cover-ups of that day.
2014 Homeless Veteran Stand Down Event8/28/2014 11:15 AMALACHUA COUNTY, FL – The Alachua County Community Support Services’ Division of Veteran Services in collaboration with many local community organizations is hosting the 2014 Homeless Veteran Stand Down event at the Martin Luther King Junior Center 1028 NE 14th Street, Gainesville on Thursday, September 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Chelsea Manning comments on the role of the Press in Foreign Policy. Making good decisions requires good information and Manning’s article in the NY Times questions the quality of that information.
Military and diplomatic reports coming across my desk detailed a brutal crackdown against political dissidents by the Iraqi Ministry of Interior and federal police, on behalf of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki. Detainees were often tortured, or even killed.
Early that year, I received orders to investigate 15 individuals whom the federal police had arrested on suspicion of printing “anti-Iraqi literature.” I learned that these individuals had absolutely no ties to terrorism; they were publishing a scholarly critique of Mr. Maliki’s administration. I forwarded this finding to the officer in command in eastern Baghdad. He responded that he didn’t need this information; instead, I should assist the federal police in locating more “anti-Iraqi” print shops.
I was shocked by our military’s complicity in the corruption of that election. Yet these deeply troubling details flew under the American media’s radar.
It was not the first (or the last) time I felt compelled to question the way we conducted our mission in Iraq. We intelligence analysts, and the officers to whom we reported, had access to a comprehensive overview of the war that few others had. How could top-level decision makers say that the American public, or even Congress, supported the conflict when they didn’t have half the story?
This is a British Vet but another great story is about the 90 plus year old paratrooper who repeated his D Day jump. Amazing!
An 89-year-old second world war veteran reported missing from a nursing home has been found in France, marking the anniversary of the D-day landings.
Bernard Jordan, who left The Pines care home in Furze Hill, Hove, wearing his war medals, contacted the home and said his friends were going to make sure he got back safely when the commemorations end.
A little more nuanced analysis of the release and negotiation with he Taliban through Qatar than you will see on the Sunday talk shows.
Stg. Bergdahl was apparently being held by the Haqqani group, which has bases in the Federally Administered Tribal Area FATA of Pakistan. Does this prisoner swamp show that the Taliban are ready to negotiate? The Haqqani group is the most hardline of the 4 major organizations now called “the Taliban” by US officials and journalists. The are the ‘old Taliban’ of Mullah Omar, the Hizb-i Islami or Islamic Party of Gulbadin Hikmatyar who fought the Soviets as occupiers in conjunction with the CIA, but in 2002 switched and decided to fight the Americans; the Haqqani Group led by Siraj Haqqani; and the “Pakistani Taliban,” most members of Mahsud and other FATA tribes, who have never been to a madrasah or institution of higher learning like 2 of the other 3 they aren’t Taliban, which means “seminarians.” The Haqqanis are said to be close to al-Qaeda
