Warriors-Are you one? A warrior doesn’t always mean you’ve been part of a War or survived part of war. It can also mean there is an undeniable love between someone who has been a warrior who understands their pain. Who is the warrior in this case? I think both of these individuals are both are! It is in a very difficult job to fight in a war. The war in Afghanistan has gone on well over a decade. Many individuals that have PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress disorder, and be seen as heros and warriors. What about the partners and wives that stand beside these warriors?
Let us take a look at the Webster Dictionary meaning of warriors-(especially in former times), A brave or experienced soldier or fighter.
Daily wisdom words definition of Warriors-men and women who are firefighters, policemen, FBI investigation officers, and others who sacrifice their lives for others. 2. the partners in a relationship with the individuals who work in such a dangerous field, not knowing each night whether or not they willl be coming home at the end of the day.
In today’s society, those women or even men who choose to be caretakers of their Alzheimer’s mothers and fathers, or sick parents in general are also “Warriors”. Some of these warriors become Martyrs over a period of time, forgetting about their first priorities which include their own children, not feeling safe with their parents because of their parents have no more to give them emotionally, physically and financially because even though they get financial compensation for taking care of them such as social security or Medicare.
The biggest issue I have with all of the above, is warriors shouldn’t have to fight so hard with the Veteran’s Administration and Social Security Administration to get health care, mental health care, not only for them but for their family or caretakers. There should be plenty of government subsidized programs available for these men and women to take advantage of, not only with support groups which are usually organized by the men and women who must deal with the broken fragments of a person they once knew. It is such a long journey to get help, and such a difficult process for any veteran or retired Law Professional to deal with when they are already suffering and so is their family.
The following story is based on true facts. I cannot reveal details of this case because it comes directly from an attorneys records and documentation of a case he handled which was the Veterans administration who was suing a private party of war, who needed an attorney and because this particular firm did so many hours of pro-bono work to provide legal representation outside of this attorney’s legal field at this time. The crux of this case was a veteran had moved and switched addresses and notified the VA giving them notice. Fortunately for this veteran, he kept excellent records, and he had a copy of the letter notifying the VA of his moving from another address. In fact, It as postmarked. The sad thing is the VA had stopped sending this veteran’s checks saying he had violated the law, by not pr0viding his current address. Of course, between a correspondence timeline the attorney created, and the other documentation he was able to gather, including documentation the veteran had saved, they won the case. In fact, the VA Had to reimburse back pay from the time line when the vacancy for this time wasn’t paid, and the veteran was thrilled.
There are many other sad cases and I find NO PLACE for politics in here either. Politics and campaigning now uses things like, VETERANS AFFAIRS OR RETIRED PENSION FUNDS YET, THEIR HANDS ARE ALWAYS FOUND IN THE PIE. THANKS SHOULD BE GIVEN FOR ALL OF THE SACRIFICES THESE WARRIORS GIVE FOR US. AFTER ALL, WE CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. THE MILITARY IS THERE TO PROTECT US, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY WE HAVE TO DECIDE: DO WE WANT TO FIX WHAT IS BROKEN WITH FIREMEN POLICEMEN AND OUR MILITARY, OR CONTINUE TO SHORTCHANGE THEM UNTIL THE REPUTATION IS SO BAD, THEY HAVE TO DECIDE NOT TO CHOOSE THESE THINGS FOR A YEAR ANYWAY.
