THANK YOU’S.   We often get nice compliments from grateful clients.  Some recent ones –

CA – California – Everything is good!   I’m receiving medical compensation and I graduated with my advanced degree. All of this is because you made me believe that – like Rocky – every dog has his day!

MS – Virginia – I’m grateful for your patience and professional guidance in pursuing the appeal.   The appeal was convoluted.  I appreciate your time flexibility to accommodate my travel schedule.  Your referral to Dr. Glassman was invaluable.  You did a great job.

RF – Pennsylvania – Dear Wayne and your lovely bride, you have an honest heart – may God continue to use you to defend the innocent.

RB – Puerto Rico – Many years and hours of lots of information I research on the web but worthless without your knowledge and expertise.  You have a touch of human kindness.   I am very pleased with your professional work.  Many blessings for you and your family.

KB – District of Columbia: Well, everything is finally final;   I’m medically retiring from the military.    It looks like everything is going well as planned, I went to Finance and they told me I don’t owe anything.  I’m doing good right now.

    TRANSGENDER BODYBUILDER SCULPTS A NEW LIFE IN THE NAVY.   Sailor Wes Phils  was named one of the winners of the 2018 International Association of Trans Bodybuilders competition. ADOPTED DAUGHTER OF MILITARY FAMILY DEPORTED. Retired Lt. Col. Patrick Schreiber and his wife Soo Jin legally adopted a daughter, Hyebin. Despite the state of Kansas issuing a birth certificate recognizing the Schreibers as her parents, the Department of Homeland Security has said there’s no legal route to citizenship for Hyebin.  Once her student visa expires she will have to leave the U.S. A Federal court in Kansas has ruled that the adopted daughter of a now-retired Army officer — who missed a key immigration deadline for her while he was deployed to Afghanistan — will have to leave the U.S. Army Lt. Col. Patrick Schreiber and his family had put off formal adoption of now-daughter Hyebin in 2013 because he was about to deploy overseas. He and wife Soo Jin legally adopted Hyebin after he got back, then started the official paperwork to seek citizenship for her. She had just turned 17. The U.S. immigration law cutoff for a foreign-born adopted child to become naturalized is 16; the U.S. District Court in Kansas declined to find an exception in Hyebin’s case. She is allowed to complete her degree in chemical engineering at the University of Kansas next year. Then she must return to Korea. Hyebin was Soo Jin’s niece, and when Hyebin’s home life became too difficult, Schreiber and his wife took her in as their own daughter.

PLEA DEAL REACHED IN CASE AGAINST FIRED MOBILITY WING COMMANDER.  A plea deal has been reached in the case of the former commander of the 375th Air Mobility Wing at Scott AFB Illinois, who was originally facing charges including sexual assault and cruelty and maltreatment.

Col. John Howard, who was fired from command in December, accepted non-judicial punishment for conduct unbecoming an officer and fraternization with a junior enlisted airman, the 18th Air Force said in a recent news release.

 Howard has submitted his paperwork to retire.

The Air Force said that the victim did not want to participate in a court-martial proceeding against Howard…

“OOPS!”  QUOTE FROM CONFEDERATE STATES NAVY CAPTAIN.  The U.S. Navy Personnel Command issued an apology Monday evening after its Twitter account posted a motivational quote from Confederate Navy Capt. Raphael Semmes.

The quote in question read, “A military, or naval man, cannot go very far astray, who abides by the point of honor.”

Semmes, who also served in the Mexican-American War for the U.S. Navy, commanded the Confederate C.S.S. Alabama during the Civil War.

LOOKING BACK.  During World War II, commissioned nurses received 50% of the pay of male officers of the same rank.  They were not entitled to receive salutes.  Disregarding these inequities, 59, 000 nurses volunteered – and half of those ended up in combat zones.   Some 217 lost their lives.  — James R Benn, The First Wave.
