National Desert Storm War Memorial

MESSAGE:
     My fellow veterans, the NDSWM is at a critical step in our fundraising for the memorial to be located on the Capitol Mall.Starting on Jan 28, 2017, the NDSWM has launched “Storm Surge 2017!” This will be a 31-day Fundraising Campaign (Jan 28 – Feb 28) to coincide with the 26th Anniversary of the Cease Fire of Operation Desert Storm and the Liberation of Kuwait. As the NDSWM moves forward with US Senate Joint Resolution 1 and the full Senate vote, our immediate financial need is $250,000.00. This money is critically needed in order to complete the ongoing site selection process and get down to the FINAL location.
The details:
     ANY DOLLAR WILL BE RECEIVED WITH HONOR. Please consider leaving a comment on the Fundraising Page as this will be an encouragement to those looking at the Site. You will be given the option to make your name and comment available only to the Fundraiser. The NDSWM recommends you allow your name and (optional) comment to be public as this is an excellent way to lend validity to the Fundraiser. In the early stages, the people are going to be looking close to make sure this is a valid fundraiser – and they should!
The NDSWM thanks you for your generous donation and support. If anyone has any question(s), feel free to contact me at 828-246-7632. Please pass this message on to family and friends. I am originally from and live in the TX Hill Country. I would be honored to come speak to groups and clubs.
Respectfully,
Karl Lang, USAF Retired

New law allows injured veterans to recoup erroneous severance taxes.

FYI,

The attached article outlines the latest change in the law that governs DFAS and the military taxing medical separation from the service due to COMBAT Related injuries sine 1991.  Anyone that was separated from the military due to a combat related injury since 1991 was taxed by DFAS at the 25% rate, and they should NOT have been, congress has ordered DFAS to contact the various veterans and inform them how to seek relief.  We also need to keep in mind that the VA sometimes recouped the money that was severance pay, but was not supposed to for combat injuries/conditions (per the PEB/MEB/IDES paperwork).

Thank you,

Tami King

At the Veterans Day brunch a member of the honor guard spoke about the honor guard providing military funeral services.

They are looking for vets to join and who to contact to be shared with veterans organizations.
