Press Release - Legion: No amnesty for illegal immigrants #noamnesty #securetheborder

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Legion: No amnesty for illegal immigrants INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 20, 2014) -- The head of the nation's largest veterans service organization today questioned the wisdom of the White House putting politics above national security if it carries through with its plan to give amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants through an executive order. "At a time when ISIS, al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are killing innocent Americans, it makes no sense to let our guard down and send a message that the United States is an open, soft target," American Legion National Commander Michael D. Helm said. "A message was sent during the recent elections, and it clearly wasn't that Americans want amnesty. The American Legion urges the president in the strongest possible terms to put our security, and our citizens' interests and wishes, ahead of providing amnesty for millions of immigrants here illegally." Helm – who is on a Far East tour…

American Indian and Native Hawiian and Alaskan Veterans Survey

I am a Cherokee Veteran of Iraq and current graduate student (Counseling Psychology Program), who is carrying out a survey on Native American veterans, and their perceptions of and attitudes towards Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This survey has met exemption criteria from Washington State University’s Institutional Review Board. It is my belief that if we as Native people speak as a group through this survey, places that provide veteran services for PTSD like the V.A. and I.H.S. will listen and will add our suggestions and preferences for treatment/healing to programs intended to help Native Veterans. I am asking for your assistance in spreading the word about our survey among your organization, friends from the service or any other interested groups or individuals.  The survey is open to anyone who is Native American and who has served in the military. They do not need to have been deployed or to have PTSD to participate in the survey. Below is a letter with more information about t…
