felt all these years about Nixon. See the Vietnam POWs – 40 years later

TFC Demands Action from U.S. Congressman Tim Walberg, on Tony Conley Radio Show,- (A MUST LISTEN)

Eric Calley was interviewed on “The Tony Conley Show” last week where he demands help from a U.S. Congressman Tim Walberg. To be able to address Capital Hill about bring USMC DISC Program to all Branches of the military. To help active duty wounded and ill make a successful transition back into civilian life. Also raising the DISC Program would cause the other branches to go back and check on the Veterans that have gotten out with wounds physically or mentally since September 11, 2001. Our Veteran have been at War for the last thirteen years with no Victory Day Celebration in site. This constant stress combined with everyday stress back here at home. As well as, the medications the veteran is on and/or self medicating with other legal and illegal drugs. There are so many factors that are weighing down on our Veterans, it seems that with everyday the weight gets a little heavier. We need your help to make this weight a little less. Write your Congressmen about saving our Veterans from suicide and to stand up the DISC Program for all US Military Branches. Definition of DISC Program Below:

District Injured Support Coordinators (DISC) are Marines who are located throughout the country to conduct face-to-face visits and telephone outreach to wounded, ill and injured (WII) Marines and their families who are recovering within their assigned region. The DISCs assist WII Marines who are experiencing extensive transition challenges, convalescing at home and those who may be away from a local base or station’s resources. The DISCs assist Marines with psychological health, legal, benefits, employment, housing, and many other matters.

The Loss of a Loved One

The Roller Coaster of Emotional Loss of a Loved One
The Loss of Liberty burdened me deeply and left me feeling alone, emotional and loss of purpose to be who I became over the last two years. The guidance and help with Post Traumatic Stress, losing more time, and how I’d go about mentoring others where all in question. How could I move forward without the presence of my service dog? It led to an emotional breakdown, in the ER with panic attacks, and a mode of depression that followed. If it wasn’t for the constant support of my family, friends, TAV(Behesha and Doc Hunter), Semper Fi Fund and unbeknown to me at the time two lovely ladies who started raising money for me to get another Doberman, Karen Straffon and Jolanthe Bassett I wouldn’t be doing as well as I am. Which brings me to say thank you and to take the positive Liberty provided verse the negative I have been experiencing. Liberty helped me in ways I will forever be grateful, emotionally strengthened me, showed me I had feelings, Empathy and warmed an ice cold heart after my stent in the Marine Corps. She showed me what happiness was and is, memories I will cherish forever. It is support like this that our Veterans need across our nation at this trivial time as 250,000 men and women become Veterans a year for the next three years. I am asking America to help me help others by adopting The Fight Continues and becoming a part of a support network that can save thousands. We as Veterans need your help in putting District Injured Support Coordinators in every state for all branches of our military. They fought for us in Iraq and Afghanistan, so lets fight for them in America and demand the support that’s needed. Semper Fidelis, Eric Calley
