FW: Help us spread the word on Veterans Day activities

Dear State Commanders and Veteran Supporters,

Veterans Day 2017 is Saturday, November 11th. There are always many activities planned!  This year, we could use your help in making a list of those activities so we may assist in getting the word out to veterans and their families who want to participate.

If you would let us know what your organization is planning to do, it would be very helpful. Give us the date, location, time and contact information. We will make sure we post those activities on our website and let everyone know through our communications, including our NDVS Newsletter about the upcoming events.

All you have to do is hit “REPLY” on this email or email me at hendryt@veterans.nv.gov or call at 775-771-2800.

Thank you very much for being a part of this partnership in serving veterans.

Respectfully,

Terri Hendry

National Park Pass $$$

  Today, 7:09 AM

Hurry! National Park Senior Pass price on the rise

July 10, 2017 Emily Woodbury

If you don’t already have your $10 Senior Pass from the National Park Service make sure to get it before the new price increase on August 28, when the price will jump from $10 to $80. Since 1994, the pass has been an incredible bargain for U.S. citizens and permanent residents 62 and older.

The hike comes as a requirement set by legislation passed by Congress in December 2016. Pass holders are given lifetime access to more than 2,000 sites and parks. The fee increase will support critical investments in maintenance projects at national parks and federal recreational lands nationwide. The legislation also introduces a new annual Senior Pass that can be purchased for $20. Seniors who purchase annual Senior Passes for four years can trade them in for a lifetime Senior Pass at no additional charge.

THE SENIOR PASS can be used at sites managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Funds from passes are used to enhance the visitor experience and support priority projects and programs.

The pass can be purchased for $10 before August 28 at a national park or other Federal recreation area that charges an entrance or standard amenity (day use) fee. The pass can also be obtained by mail or online, for $10 before August 28 but there will be an additional $10 charge for processing, for a total of $20. Due to expected high order volume, there could be delays with online and mail order processing of up to several months.

The Senior Pass covers all entrance fees and standard amenity (day use) fees and may provide senior discounts for things such as tours or campsites. The pass also waives the entrance fee for traveling companions. At per-vehicle fee sites, the pass admits the pass holder and all passengers in a noncommercial vehicle. At a per-person fee site, the pass admits the pass holder and three other adults. Children under 16 are always admitted free.



If you are a disabled veteran, you are entitled to a free National Park Pass.

INTERVIEWS

UNDISCLOSED RECIPIENT (chelsa51@gmail.com)

This message was sent with high importance.

Just found out some of the original message didn’t come through for some people.  Hope this goes through this time.

 

Subject: INTERVIEWS

All,

Vegas PBS is interested in doing interviews with your memberships for anyone who served during the Vietnam era. You didn’t have to serve in Vietnam as every story is important. We would also like any family member or survivors you may be in contact with as we would like to afford them the opportunity to tell their story. The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 17 has graciously offered up their location to do the interviews. Right now, we have 1 date set with them to have our field team do the interviews. We are set for the 19th of June. The interviews will be edited down to 1 minute spots and will air during “The Vietnam War” documentary that will air in September.

Please coordinate those members who would like to come down and be interviewed. They should bring any memorabilia or photos with them to the interview as we will photograph them for inclusion in the piece. If you have people that need to interviewed either here at the station or in their homes, just let me know and I will coordinate that. Please forward any other organizations POC we can reach out to for this project.

Vegas PBS thanks you for your service and your continued support to our Veterans!

Regards,

Jim Knudsen

Attorney General Laxalt Releases Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE Program

November 11, 2016

clip_image002

Business Case in Honor of Veterans Day November 11, 2016 (NV) Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt is pleased to announce the completion of the business case for the Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE Program. The program was officially launched one year ago in November, 2015, and is the nation’s first attorney general-led, public-private partnership offering our military communities access to pro bono civil legal services. In practice, the program pairs military Service members in need of legal assistance with pro bono private legal counsel for civil matters including consumer fraud, military rights, immigration, landlord/tenant, predatory lending and creditor/debtor issues. The program also provides monthly workshops dedicated to drafting free wills and powers of attorney for Nevada veterans across the state.

The @EASE program strives to bolster military readiness by providing Service members with the knowledge that the program has the capacity to manage legal affairs in their absence—putting our Service members @EASE. Earlier this year, the Department of Defense named the Office a “Best Practice Program,” and recommended that the program be duplicated in states throughout the country. The program has partnered with the Nevada State Bar, County Bars and numerous statewide legal organizations to recruit more than 150 local attorneys willing to represent our Service members and their families free of charge.

“Today, on behalf of all Nevadans, I salute the millions of veterans who have dedicated their lives to protecting the life and liberty of all Americans, and hope you will join me in extending our deepest gratitude for their service,” said Attorney General Adam Laxalt. “Nevada is home to an estimated 11,400 active duty military members, 7,620 reserve members and over 228,000 veterans, and the Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE program, through its pro bono partnerships, is proud to have helped Nevada’s Service members and veterans handle over 900 pro bono matters in its first year. With the completion of this business case, there is now empirical data justifying the need for this program and a roadmap to support efforts to form legal assistance offices in other states. It is my hope that this program will demonstrate a commitment to our military communities for years to come, and that eligible Nevadans will continue to take advantage of these services.

” For more information about the program, visit nvagomla.nv.gov . Nevada attorneys hoping to volunteer pro bono hours to the program should email Heather Cooney at HCooney@ag.nv.gov

Services Offered

The state of Nevada currently has an active duty and veteran population of over 400,000 people. These citizens, by virtue of having served our nation and state, are eligible for pro bono representation from the Nevada Attorney General’s Office of Military Legal Assistance. Those eligible to receive assistance include active duty, reserve and National Guard service members and their spouses. The veteran community will be covered for wills and powers of attorney, and hopes to expand its services for veterans after the first year.

Memorial Day Events

Memorial Day Events

You're invited to attend three different events happening during the month of May at both the Nevada State Veterans Cemeteries in the northern and southern parts of the State. All of these events are designed to remember and honor those who have served our country. 

This year, Memorial Day ceremonies will be held on May 29, 2017. 

In the north, the ceremony will start at 11:00 AM at the Nevada State Veterans Cemetery in Fernley. 

In the south, a similar ceremony will be held at 1:00 PM at the Nevada State Veterans Cemetery (SNVMC) in Boulder City. 

You're also invited to attend a preliminary event, designed to prepare the cemeteries for Memorial Day guests and dignitaries. There will be a Flag In event on Saturday, May 27, 2017 where volunteers will place American Flags on each gravesite. 

The Flag In event on May 27, in northern Nevada will require participants to arrive no later than 8:30 AM and assemble in the main area of the cemetery, near the pavilion. There will be a short ceremony at 9:00 AM where volunteers will be provided instruction on how and where to place the American flags. Volunteers will receive a free, commemorative WWI pin!

In southern Nevada, the Flag In event on May 27 will require volunteers to arrive by 7:00 AM. They should assemble in the southern Courtyard Chapel area. There will be a short ceremony where volunteers will learn the proper placement of the American flags.  Volunteers will receive a free, commemorative WWI pin!

Additionally, in southern Nevada ONLY, there is a May 28th event planned to honor Special Forces. That SNVMC event will begin at 10:00 AM.  Again, this ceremony will only take place at SNVMC.  

We look forward to your continued support of Nevada Veterans and our military community by seeing you there.

Patriots -- passing along an invitation to dine for FREE

 

Hi there,

I wanted to reach out on behalf of my client, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana at the Galleria at Sunset as they are having a Memorial Day special for veterans so I wanted to spread the word as much as possible. On Monday, May 29 veterans that dine in at BRAVO! and present a valid military ID will eat for free. I have a press release containing additional information that I am more than happy top send over, but I was hoping you could pass this information along to your members and fellow veterans that support your organization. I'd love for as many veterans to eat free as possible!

Please feel free to give me a call at 702-737-3100 if you have any questions or need any additional information.

Thank you,
MacKenzie Ruta

On October 1, 1940, Private Jack Bernard and other volunteers in The British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaughts Own Rifles) were marching smartly down Eighth Street in New Westminster to board a ship and sail off to war. Suddenly, Bernards five-year-old son broke free of his mothers grasp and sprinted into the military formation to take his smiling fathers hand. In that instant, an alert Vancouver Daily Province photographer, Claude Dettloff, snapped the shutter. Soon, his unforgettable image of little Warren and Bernard was being printed by leading publications throughout North America. It was later used in Canada's war bond drives with the plea, help bring my Daddy home. Jack Bernard survived the war and was reunited with his son in 1945.
