The September 18 edition of Warrior Connection as a discussion  with retired US Marine captain  Roy Fish on using carpentry to help vets heal and to thrive.  www.triplehcarpenry.com    

OUR MISSION

Triple H Carpentry (Healing, Helping, Honoring) was founded by a Combat Veteran on a mission to provide a conduit of healing for other Combat Veterans suffering from PTSD and other combat trauma related illnesses. The healing conduit being woodworking, we provide a wide range of originally designed wood products. Additionally, the Company’s corps values include a mandate to help those in need through donating time and material to build furniture for families in need and to honor heroes by burning the names of fallen service members into each piece of furniture we build.

This model brought about by the Grace of God as Roy made very clear is extraordinary in it's vision and success.  It brought Roy and now others from "the brink" back into thriving.

Warrior Connection - 08.28.16

August 28, 2016

The  August 28th edition of Warrior Connection was a discussion about the health effects and effects on learning of pesticide and other toxic compound exposures with Dr / Professor Ann Lopez.

 

Known and suspected  previous and current pesticides hazards and haz mat issues are affecting tens of thousands of military and civilians and dependents across our nation and wherever US military operations were conducted and are still being conducted.  The Former Chanute AFB in Rantoul, Illinois is a prime example of continuing exposures. (civilianexposure.org) that are ignored.  Just like military personnel farmworkers who are exposed without adequate protection along with proper hygiene when they come in from the fields and  wash their body and clothes spreading  pesticide residues all over creation.  Household use of pesticides is also a significant problem.  We also have possible cross contamination  exposure issues for residents eating pesticide laden food products.  The known and suspected exposures and synergistic combinations can and probably do have a significant effect of student learning and behavior as the medical literature and first hand experience indicate.  Genetic transfer through generations is also a significant problem.  we also have extensive use of pesticides applied to adults and children and pets without any concern for immediate and long term health effects.

 

Professor:Lopez's book 'THE FARMWOERKER'S JOURNEY"  details many of these ignored problems.

Before the crash- SUICIDE:  AN  EMAIL FROM SSG PAUL LYONS

I have had the privilege to have co-hosted With Doug Rokke And Denise Nichols (WARRIOR CONNECTION) on Gary Nulls Radio Station, known as "The Progressive Radio Network", out of New York City, regarding the various exposures that occurred during Desert Storm, whether they be concerning Depleted Uranium, Biological Warfare, and Chemical exposures; not to mention experimental shots with records of them being given as well as Nerve Agent pre-Treatment pills that we were ordered to take, that occurred during Operation Desert Storm. I and well over 275K Troops are said to be on the Gulf War Registry. I have also been exposed...I have two post war Children who are also sick, including my wife. How's that for a "Welcome Home Party"? The VA and DOD Need to Restart  their Children and Spouse Health Registry and get with program! We didn't ask for this and I DAMN sure wouldn't have intentionally exposed my Wife and now my sick post Gulf War Children, had I known that the birth defects and Illnesses were transmittable...This has been a NIGHTMARE for my wife and I. Someone In The Federal Government needs To Pick up the dropped ball and GET WITH THE PROGRAM!! We Also Need New Congressional Hearing's, from somebody in Congress with the backbone and fortitude of Former US Senator Donald Riegle, (R) Who saw the problem back in the early 1990's and held hearings, trying to get to the TRUTH of Gulf WAR Illnesses and now we have possible OIF exposures as well. This Government needs to settle this most important issue once and for all....If our current CBRN, also known as NBC gear is faulty, then let's fix the problem...WE know it there are GAPS, so let's FIX IT!!

Warrior Connection – 06.26.16

June 26, 2016
The June 26th edition of Warrior Connection was a discussion about the Vietnam Wall, coming home, surviving, and thriving. The moving "wall" was just at Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve - Mahomet, Illinois. We all, Ray and I and Denise lost our "brothers" and much more but we can thrive.
 
 
After I helped erect the wall I went to look for one of my aircrew brothers Robert Lynn and as I touched the wall the "little sister" of Thomas Bennett , who was also there to help erect the wall, spoke up to me. Tom and Bob flew together and got shot down one day apart. We both reached some closure.
 
 
 
Ray's brothers who were kids are:
 
William Bushey, Steven Rickerson, James Sickles and Donald Liebl
In the photo I just took with my image reflected back.
 
God's work once more. "WALL MAGIC"
