Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys.

The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half. Oh man what get through this very low process of you know post producing this but This has been really great. I know i've learned a lot. No doubt our listeners have learned a lot. Thank you guys so much for coming on the show really really enjoyed having you absolutely are i would not try and in a motor selves doll. But there's more information both in blogs articles that are on our websites on the im l. a. r. dot com their blogs articles about all his unstuffy also webinars that the media von normal basis. That has a lot of money on and join this martin. I'm ask questions where you're to help end. Try and elton's many veterans hand and your minds and you'll get them guys. Make yourselves better absolutely. I wish i wish. I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half. It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside. Su know how all the systems work so there we'd and accurately communicate with the that's how we run a different off practice than everybody else who's We what these guys who they're fighting against and there's a alive easier way that i hope you've enjoyed this segment of the interview.

"fort hood" Discussed on The Takeaway

"In twenty twenty alone. Twenty eight service members assigned to the fort hood. Military base in texas have died by suicide accident or homicide among the dead was twenty year. Old army soldier vanessa yen. Who was murdered by another soldier. After facing harassment on the base gins murder brought renewed scrutiny of an army base. That for years has been criticized for a culture that allowed for sexual harassment and assault and other violence and where accountability was rare. Here's representative jackie. Speier speaking yesterday at a house armed services committee hearing were house. Representatives heard from panel who investigated cases of violence at fort hood. It has been a difficult year for everyone. But the raging pandemic deep divisions and racial reckoning facing our nation but it has been even more difficult as a year for the soldiers and families of fort hood like the rest of us they face a deadly pandemic civil unrest and extreme inequality but unlike us they also must live and work on the most dangerous military installation in the united states. Let me repeat that. The most dangerous military installation in the united states earlier this week army secretary ryan mccarthy announced that fourteen leaders at fort hood would be fired or suspended and he's also announced new rules for how commanders should proceed when soldiers go missing but whether these measures will be enough to change the culture at fort hood and military bases nationwide is where we begin today on the takeaway joining me. Now is lieutenant colonel. Rachel van landingham professor at the southwestern law school in los angeles and former judge advocate in the us. air force. rachel welcome to the show. Hi tanzi thank you so much for having me also with us is. John is may a reporter at the new york times and former naval officer. John thank you for joining us. It's good to be here. thank you john. let's start with you the With the findings that came out this week. What did the independent independent civilian review board here actually uncover that was happening at fort hood. Well i think one of the most significant things and covered was a problem with command leadership at multiple levels and that's reflected in the number of people who have been fired or who have been suspended in their duties and it shows how those problems with command leadership filtered down into a climate where sexual assault and sexual harassment was allowed in permissible rachel. What were your thoughts on the findings. It struck me that this was one of the most. If not the most pointed report ever issued by an ntt associated with department of defense that laid the responsibility squarely at the feet of the commanders. On in fact most striking conclusion was that quote a. permits there was a permissive environment allowed for sexual assault and sexual harassment at fort hood and who will allow permissive environment The command climate this permissive environment is just a straight up leadership failure In that symptomatic of a leadership failure is that there was significant under reporting. What really struck me tennessee. Can't tanzi no was that what came through was the utter fear and distrust of the system that fear of retaliation from fellow soldiers and from the chain of command most importantly and just significant deep distrust of the system that led to and then the concerns that fort hood already stood out and so i'd like to get into that in a moment regarding how fort hood already stood out and distinguish itself from other army bases itself Indeed the report show that fort hood already had over a thirty percent higher rate of or excuse me forty percent higher rate of sexual assaults from two thousand fifteen through twenty twenty twentieth and the rest of the army on there were right flags all over the place. There was the history of problems. Climate report service had reported serious issues already And yet nothing was done. It was the the star mission and silence from leadership that speaks volumes and john. Is there something about after we heard would reach just laid out there. Was there something about fort hood itself wear. This type of culture was allowed to proliferate. Well i think one thing that was specific to fort hood was a lack of qualified sexual assault or sex crime investigators Those are people employed by the army criminal. Investigate it sorry army criminal investigation command often referred to as the id and it found that that office was chronically. Understaffed under resourced and trained. A vast majority of their enlisted special agents. Were straight out of their fourteen week. Training course and they were not qualified to carry out investigations without supervision. It led to a line in the report where it said. Essentially that fort hood's investigative division was a training ground. So i think that that is something specific to fort hood. It may be the case elsewhere but to what Rachel mentioned it the report. The report specifically singled out fort hood for having higher numbers of sex crimes. Violent felonies assault battery charges drug offenses drunk and disorderly charges. Larceny desertions and people going absent without. Leave so. I think that you put all these things together. In you have an environment where even mundane crimes or problems are not able to be adequately investigated reported and then dealt with by leadership so rachel when we look at what was announced as far as a fourteen members of leadership who were either fired or demoted number of high ranking officials and soldiers including three top commanders. What does that tell us. I mean can someone actually be fired from the military. Well i think what it tells us that there are numerous individuals whose careers in the army in the military are effectively are effectively over And secretary mccarthy had did announce earlier this week that there are ongoing investigations as is the as is the par for the course went. Individuals are relieved from duty So appropriate very including criminal criminal consequences are needed to be taken regarding everyone that failed to just discharge their responsibilities here But here the consequences have to be commensurate with their individual failures. But that's there's a rub here because these are structural and cultural defects that this report is identifying. They're far larger than any one person of course criminal on and disciplinary measures are grounded on individual liability But they're justifiably has to be consequences for the grotesque. What i think protest dereliction in allowing a culture of permissiveness. I don't think hannah that for the family. That's going to be enough and it'll never be enough and it also shouldn't be enough for the army either to be frank nor the collective armed forces an entire system. I think helped contribute To vanessa's death. An entire system has helped vanessa. Gazillion In house has helped. Contribute to this culture on i report. Numerous times mentioned mentions a culture. And i think that really has to be nuanced and has to be spelled out so that actions can be taken but there must be systemic change I think that the this report must be lot must be reviewed and scrutinized by everyone who is appointed zeno from later in the united states military on in the army from the lowest four noncommissioned officers. Who importantly set examples for their troops to the company commanders to the service chiefs to the secretary of defense and to.

"fort hood" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"I'm Noel King and I'm David Greene. 14. Leaders at Fort Hood in Texas have been fired or suspended by the Army. This decision follows an investigation into command issues, and that investigation was spurred. Violence, including murder, sexual assault and harassment at the military base the dates back years now. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy announced his decision at the Pentagon. I am gravely disappointed that leaders failed, effectively created climate. Treated all soldiers with dignity and respect. Roast There is a regional reporter for the Stars and Stripes News organization. She's been covering this story and joins us from Austin, Texas, Rose. Thanks for being here. Good morning. How in the world that we get here on on the U. S military base. Well. Last summer, Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy put together the civilian panel to look at the rash of violent crimes at Fort Hood that you mentioned that included by homicides at the base this year. Most notably in the media was the death of 20 year old specialist Vanesa G. N. Who was killed on base by fellow soldier It took more than two months for investigators to learn what happened to Vanessa, and during that time her family talked about the sexual harassment she had faced on base. And this led to this review panel and several other investigations that are still ongoing. And yesterday it came out that this committee found that Fort Hood's leadership had created a permissive environment for sexual assault and harassment and Fort Hood. And that it had in effectively implemented its prevention program, which is known as sharp. Okay, So the Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, clearly saying that there was leadership failure here that that led to this based on these findings? What what exactly did he announced yesterday? So yesterday, he announced that he relieved you're suspended. 14 leaders of the base that included a two star general was relieved of his job. But three corps, another two star general, was suspended and pending another investigation. And the command team at the helm of Vanessa Gins unit was also fired from their jobs. Well, he also mentioned there were 70 recommendations that came out of this report and that he has created a task force to let him know by March how to best implement Every single one of these recommendations, and those recommendations will go army. Why not just it? Fort Hood. So you were at the base when this was announced. What it it wasn't like there. Yeah, they Fort Hood Commander General. White held a press conference yesterday after Secretary McCarthy made the announcement. Was a very somber tone. He wanted people to know and his command teams at Fort Hood to know that this is something that's going to make changes and he is going to take it very seriously. He then brought 2000 soldiers together at an outdoor football stadium, and he addressed them quite frankly, about what was happening. And you know, many of those soldiers had been at work all day. They didn't even know what it happened. They didn't know that some of their chain of command had been fired earlier in the day. But afterwards I spoke to one female soldier who she's been following this very closely. She's been working at Fort Hood for about a year now, and she has friends who are impacted by this and she really wants to see these changes. You said these changes could go beyond Fort Hood, right? Yes, Um, Secretary McCarthy noted that you know, While this report looked specifically at Fort Hood, the committee members you know, heard from soldiers about their experiences that other installations as well and so he wants to implement these changes across the army. Yes, there is a regional reporter, Four stars and stripes. Thanks So much for reporting this morning. Yes. Thank you for having me. House Democrats are planning a change to the way Congress spends taxpayer money earmarks, which let lawmakers request money for projects could be making a comeback. They were effectively banned in 2000 and 11 after a syriza of scandals. Here's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis back one earmarks were a regular feature of congressional life. Missouri Democratic Congressman Emanuel Cleaver said Republicans and Democrats could cut more deals. This used to be a time Everybody was telling Lucia I mean, Republicans, Democrats dancing kissing on, You know, just this was like the time to be saved. Cleaver served on a bipartisan committee established last year to examine how to make Congress work better one of the conclusions in their final report. Bring back earmarks. The panel's recommendations were Wade after hearing testimony from advocates like John Hudak of the Brookings Institution. Who's long argued the earmark band over corrected the problem. Your marks were painted as a coven for corruption. Practice reserved for the funding of needless projects to benefit the friends, supporters and donors of members of Congress. Much of this was hyperbole is earmarking was abused on Lee by a handful of members in the past, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is leading the effort to reinstate them with limits and more transparency. He argues the band didn't even stop your marks. It just transferred that spending power from Congress where it constitutionally belongs. The executive branch. More it doesn't and my belief is that members of Congress elected from foreign 35 districts around the country know frankly better than those who may be in Washington. What they're district's need. In the past decade, both parties have attempted and failed to reinstate member earmarks because of concerns about how it would play politically.

Spca christopher wayne sawyer twenty nine he was from washington and he was found dead march fifth at his home on the base army officials said foul play was not suspected in his death but that an investigation was being conducted. He entered the army in october of two thousand seventeen as a wheeled vehicle mechanic and had been assigned to the first armored brigade combat team. Now i didn't find any other information on like the manner of death for this. I don't know if it was gunshot. Or what but they suspect to somehow that it was a suicide but then again we know what they spec to suicides in there. Obviously a little funky. So i just want to know for what reason and then i wanna know like so. I am part of a group that a whole lot of veterans and soldiers active whatever they have our phone numbers and we we're regional so it's like they know you know where they're buddies or whatever nearby and we will go like female. I will go to females though with a drunken vet. You know what i mean. Who is having a hard time but it's almost like a suicide.

I don't know even if these people did come out of there and we're willing to talk about it. They probably wouldn't live for very long. So i don't know i can't help but wonder about like ancient indian burial grounds or if they're above some sort of fuck a nuclear waste facility or something because oh shit i mean there's tons and tons of land shit tons of land. Yeah it's enormous and it's all like not s not inhabited it's like the desert which is probably i guess. What makes it so perfect for their base. I don't know i'm kind of on your side. Like what who cursed the land. But yeah i mean. I don't know so the next one. That i wanna talk about is spca shelby tyler. Jones who was twenty. She was found suffering from a gunshot wounds. Shortly after three m on march first at a convenience store in killeen police officers performed life saving measures but jones died at the scene therefore they were not life saving measures. I'm sorry. I just love the way that some articles word. These things attempts life saving measures. They attempted life saving measures but she died at the scene she did. They just don't seem to give a shit after their soldiers are dead used to it. There's friggin how many of them killed per year overseas. You know some killed them but that shouldn't matter that that should be something that you're trying to actively prevent and work towards like lowering those numbers but they just seem like they don't. They're not trying very hard and kaleen or hud. A jaded kaleen. Police officers said that jones had been shot at club. Dreams a strip club about a half a mile from the store. The case remains unsolved for some reason. Apparently there is a redacted copy of an investigative report floating around out there. The report shows a total of fifteen people. Either witnessed this killing or were were believed to be involved in this. Killing in this redacted copy a fifteen people possibly saw this person being killed and did nothing and sud nothing a bell county grand jury also declined to indict a suspect in june.

"Poster well engulfed like just happened. Yeah i'm sure that the only reason why they found him was probably because of the jeep. Lik- on fire but two people were actually arrested and charged in that brandon. Michael oliveras twenty-eight of kaleen charged with the murder and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. He was held without bond on the murder charge and his girlfriend. Estrellita hidalgo belkin thirty seven. Also of kaleen was charged with hindering prosecution and unauthorized use of vehicle. Did if you call setting it on. Fire an authorized use. Then i guess stupid. So there's a quote here from rosecrans father. These two people had befriended my son and the week before the homicide had pretty much been leaching off my son. Police officials said the investigation determined that rosecrans and oliveras were traveling together in the soldiers cheap when rosecrans was killed his body was removed from the jeep and left on the side of the road cell phone data video and eyewitness statements. Put the two men together in the area of the slang. The motive behind the shooting still remains unknown. The shit authorities question him and apparently every time they would question him about it he would just keep changing his story. They never actually got like a real story on why he did this. Of course various claimed the man had used his gun a nine millimeter. He said he'd sold the to an unnamed person. They found messages between all of arison. Another person regarding trading the weapon. The person involved in the proposed trade was not the man. Oliveira's blamed for rosecrans death so apparently heaped he tried to tell the story of gun sale gone wrong and then changed that and like it just kept changing and evolving. He eventually told detectives that he killed rosecrans because the soldier tried to rape his girlfriend. No one really knows. An apparent bullet hole was found in the back. Passenger door of the jeep unfortunately will probably never have the real answer or the real truth but we know our son was only trying to be friends with someone and then this happened to him and it breaks our heart. The dad said why is it so violent. There don't understand. I know that it's a military base but come on nuts. I missed the part. Where apparently after they killed him. They used his phone to ask his friends for gas money. One of his friends actually cash apt him ten dollars. And that's what they used to buy the gas to burn his car with all holy shit. Hey can you look gun. So i can shoot you with. Nails are wet. That's the that's a slow. John lewis slowdown down there. Yeah next is michael stephen wardrobe. Who has twenty two. He was shot and killed march. Twenty third at his residence and colleen. S p c. Show vino djamil roy. Who was also twenty two had been charged with the murder in the case according to colleen police officials the men were in a fight that became physical. The killeen daily herald reported that roy had allegedly used a gun to threaten wardrobe who separated from the army in january. I don't know what it means when it says separated from the army. I don't know if that means he was discharged or what. It could have been an injury and so he was like temporarily discharges out for that like mike. My cousin was my cousin broke shoulder during a jump. He was airborne young and so he was. He was gone for a little while because they had to go to the va and have a surgeon get all fixed and then get cleared and then go back you know. Jeez so he was just gone. I think even worked at applebee's going is gonna do something you know. Now you're not get paid really which i think is dumb if you get hurt while doing something for the military on the military time you shouldn't have to worry about it. You know what i mean. Yeah we should be taken care of our vets. I once to a guy who was who had to go to drill on the weekends his national guard and they gave him. I owe us a couple months. A shit you not what what. Yeah they didn't fucking pan. He went to drill and they didn't pay him. I owe us who defend the country with your life. Come on man drill sweeping the floor for free whom i gosh anyways that's who So okay apparently wardrobe the one who was shot and killed he was apparently romantically involved with this other dudes wife according to the other dude that shot and killed him. This guy had busted out the windows of wardrobes car and then they began fighting and then it became physical and then the sky roy apparently brazened a weapon and open fired on during the altercation. The suspect fired several shots the victim and then just fled the area so officers in the area located him he was just hanging out and a nearby convenience store. People are so dumb and he was taken into custody. What are you doing dumb criminals. So wardrobe was found lying in the front yard of a home his home he had been shot repeatedly a total of ten shell. Casings were found at the scene. That one was actually the third to involve soldiers within a month like condensed within one month. That was the third killing involving soldiers. Oh my god yeah so the next one. Spca freddie delacruz junior twenty. Three of georgia was one of three people killed in a triple homicide march fourteenth in killeen.

You know after what happened in Columbine a city of forty thousand or maybe forty thousand at the time very similar to like the city within the city, of Fort Hood. That was one event that happened. Fort Hood has already had its columbine in two thousand nine. It was a guy that I think he was a psychologist. On grounds there? But something to do with that, and he went off and he killed thirteen. Just like in Columbine, did like the same number. Fears after that, there's another plot just annihilate soldiers. And then there was a spree killing which about three to four people I think were murdered which is just an explosive events planned. It just goes off and then there's just like Chase after that.

"Fort Hood when she was station is hiding details of her death. WeII. We start with President Trump in Florida at Southern Command. He was there to highlight the enhanced anti drug trafficking operation in the Caribbean, Eastern Pacific near Central America that he announced in April. We're taking the fight directly to the sinister criminal cartels and we're showing them no mercy. We are doing numbers like nobody thought possible. Even the admiral, he would say that he would have never thought this was going to happen to the extent that it's happened. Our message is clear. You will not threaten our citizens. You are not poison our Children and you will not infiltrate our borders. We will find you. We will stop you and we will put everybody that we find Behind bars. If you're lucky, the results of this historic international campaign had been absolutely phenomenal. This joint operation has resulted in the interdiction of more than 120 metric tons. Does anyone know how much that is of illicit narcotics that is in massive billions and billions and the arrest of more than 1000 drug traffickers? These actions have denied the cartel off billions of Gaius cartels of billions and billions of dollars in cash and prevented the loss of untold American lives. And we've seen the results in the United States in a single four day period in May are courageous Coast Guard men and women stopped three narco submarines packed with poisonous drugs, keeping thousands of pounds of lethal narcotics off of our streets and off of our city areas. We got rid of it. We got it. We have it and I don't know what you do with it. What do you do with it? By the way, you get all that stuff. You dump it. What do you do with it? I want to hear what do you do with it? You blow it up, just dump it someplace they burned. That sounds like a good way of doing it on behalf of millions of American moms and dads. I want to express our country's pride and gratitude for your lifesaving actions. My administration is committed to ensuring you have the tools. The resource is equipment and support you need President Donald Trump at south com in Florida, The Miami Herald reports. The visit to Darrell, Home of the largest Venezuelan community in the U. S. Is also a nod to his Latin American policy since the military operation was also announced as an attempt to cut the funds going to Nicolas Maduro regime in Venezuela. And there's also this from the paper. The trip to South Florida also comes after Trump recently made comments about considering a meeting with Maduro, which angered many Venezuelans. The president met with supporters at a local church there, and he tied these issues to his re election campaign. Well, my administration as you know, it stands with every citizen of them well in Cuban, Nicaragua stands with the righteous struggle for freedom. The Patriots here today fled socialism to find freedom and socialism and other things you know, and step beyond socialism in many cases, and now Joe Biden and the radical left and trying to impose the same system Socialism plus In America. Biden is a puppet of Bernie Sanders AOC. The militant left the people that want to rip down statues and monuments to George Washington. Thomas Jefferson Benjamin Frank, Jesus Jesus. They want to rip down statues to Jesus. So we're dealing with a group of people that they will not win. They will not win at all. But this election coming up is a very important one. They used to say, 2016 the most important and maybe I'll still say that. But this is equal to that. This is equal because we need that extra time to have. It seemed like a tree. You move it. It has to grab on. And that's why I appreciate your old being Your great leaders and I appreciate you being here. Nobody will be safe in a Biden America, But Biden doesn't know what a bite in America is. If you ask him to define it, he wouldn't even know what it is. But other people do. And he will have radical people running that He'll be choosing a vice president who will see what ends up being. But he'll be choosing somebody. But even that person won't have as much to do with running the countries. You believe Biden wants to defund the police. He wants to call the cops. The enemy, which he did the The day, leaving every citizen at the mercy of a socialist mob or a mob far worse than socialism was ever meant to be. I'm fighting against this horrible situation. I'm fighting and I'm fighting hard and I want the Republicans to get strong and tough And I want people that agree with being on the democratsside of which there are many. I think we're gonna have a tremendous Democrats surge We're actually doing in the real Poles were doing very well. We reviewed Poles this morning with different states. We're doing very well. By the way, you'll be happy to know what the state of Florida we're doing Great. You see the voters out there thousands and thousands of boats every weekend, and we appreciate it. But nobody has seen anything like it ever. And we have that in many other states with voters and bikers and everybody this a spirit that nobody's ever seen.
