Renewal Coalition 45th Retreat

Renewal Coalition 45th Retreat

[Show as slideshow] The 45th Retreat for Renewal Coalition started with the arrival of a great group of wounded service members and their wives. Our guests traveled from Missouri, Nevada, Tennessee and California. We are also very pleased that Sheri Oberhelman has joined us from the FOCUS Marine Foundation located in St. Louis, Missouri. FOCUS and Renewal Coalition have enjoyed a very good relationship for the past year and a half as we strive to assist as many wounded veterans as possible. The American Auxiliary Unit 65 Delray Beach prepared a fabulous steak dinner with the financial help of the Nam Knights of America West Palm Beach chapter. Special thanks goes to the volunteers who helped serve dinner, clean the kitchen and bring wonderful homemade desserts. Our organization is so blessed to have the volunteers, contributors and sponsors who make it possible to fulfill our mission to assist our wounded service members and their families. —————————— In spite of the cold weather, we had another great Retreat day at Renewal Coalition! Boating was replaced with a trip to the theater to see Finest Hour. The Fore family brought a fabulous brunch. Jona hosted a great Super Bowl party with every type of “football” food imagineable. Thank you so much for everyone who made yesterday such a special day. Our soldiers, Marines and their wives have really enjoyed their time with us. —————————— All of our veterans and their wives are returning home today…..always a sad day at Renewal Coalition. Even with the cold weather, everyone was able to have a great time and reconnect as a couple in a...
Commentary: Veterans deserve our support every day

Commentary: Veterans deserve our support every day

Our recent annual observance of Veterans Day marked a genuine, heartfelt “thank you” to the men and women who have bravely served our nation. But now that the celebrations are over, it’s an appropriate time to ask an important question: Are we truly supporting America’s veterans? A landmark survey conducted by my organization, Disabled American Veterans, reveals a very mixed answer. There are 22 million veterans in this country. They are our family members, friends and neighbors; indeed, we all likely know at least one veteran. But there is much that many of us don’t know or understand about their experiences, attitudes and perceptions. That’s why we conducted the DAV Veterans Pulse Survey. Nationally representative of America’s veterans, it is the largest, most comprehensive assessment ever to reveal how generations of veterans from World War II through the post-9/11 era view their military experience, benefits and overall quality of life. The survey results reveal that whether they served in Vietnam or Afghanistan, Korea or Kuwait, veterans are glad that they answered the call. Seventy-nine percent would serve again. Eighty-four percent believe their military service had an overall positive impact on their life. This is true even though many veterans report paying a price for their military service. For example, nearly four out of 10 post-9/11 veterans say their military service had a negative effect on their physical health, and almost three out of 10 say that it had a negative impact on their mental health. Some of the research findings are troubling — one primary conclusion is that this country is not keeping its promises to America’s veterans. Large numbers of veterans...
