1. Message from the Top
As I finish the newsletter for this month, there are a lot of events
happening on the international political stage that may pull our military
back into another Mid-East war. The main stream press this morning is rife
with articles about how the president is going to the Congress to justify
the use of military force in Syria. I find it fascinating to listen to the
news as to why America should or should not do this. Some say it is to take
attention away from our deplorable economy, others say it is because a red
line was crossed, others feel it is the responsibility of the United Nations
and yet others say the use of chemical weapons has to have a consequence.
All sorts of reasons abound.
Country singer Willie Nelson once said: "For those who fought for it,
freedom has a taste the protected will never know." A veteran understands
Willie’s comments much more than the common citizen. Irrespective of where
you stand on the Syrian issue, it is your right for which you have fought
and defended to let your members of the House and Senate know how you and
your family feel about the use of military force in Syria. Your comments at
this juncture to your member of Congress could be critical to what will
happen in the near future. You fought and defended your right of free
expression so express your opinion to your member of Congress. You have the
ability to say things that those on active duty cannot. You can do this
indirectly through your veteran service organizations or directly by going

Well, we are drawing to a close for the summer. The economy is slowly
growing but not fast enough to generate a real recovery. According to the
Bureau of Economic Analysis ( the
economy in the second quarter grew 2.5% which is definitely way too slowly
to give us a recovery. For a real recovery the country needs to be growing
at 3.5% or more and needs to be generating 300,000 plus new jobs per month.
We have not generated anything near 300,000 jobs per month for over five
years. However, for those seeking dependable jobs, the energy sector,
especially in the oilfields, continue to grow with many new well-paying
jobs. If that is where you would like to work, VetJobs has over 1,400 oil
related jobs on the site. Additionally, here is a list of the leading oil &
gas job boards.

Monday, September 2, is when the United States celebrates Labor Day in 2013
As the Industrial Revolution took hold of the United States, the average
American in the late 1800s worked 12-hour days, seven days a week in order
to make a basic living. Children were also working, as they provided cheap
labor to employers and laws against child labor were not strongly enforced.
With the long hours and terrible working conditions, American unions became
more prominent and voiced their demands for a better way of life. On Tuesday
September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers marched from City Hall to Union Square in
New York City, holding the first-ever Labor Day parade. Participants took an
unpaid day-off to honor the workers of America as well as vocalize issues
they had with employers. As years passed, more states began to hold these
parades, but Congress would not legalize the holiday until 12 years later.
When celebrating Labor Day this year, let us recognize not only the American
labor movement and all it has brought about, but also those in the defense
industry and the military who labor to protect our country. Many of our
active duty, National Guard and Reserve brothers and sisters will not have
the luxury of celebrating the holiday with their families. Please keep them
in your prayers as they continue to defend our country!

On the economic front, even though the economy is sluggish at best, many
press outlets report businesses are hiring at a robust rate. Reuters reports
the problem with those reports is three out of four of the nearly one
million hires this year are part-time and many of the jobs are low-paid.
Faltering economic growth at home and abroad and concern that President
Barack Obama's signature health care law will drive up business costs are
behind the wariness about taking on full-time staff.
So far this year, low-paying industries have provided 61% of the nation's
job growth even though these industries represent just 39% of overall U.S.
jobs, according to Labor Department numbers analyzed by Moody's Analytics.
Mid-paying industries have contributed just 22% of this year's job gain.
Consider Mike Ulrich, 30, who earned a master's degree in public
administration in May from the University of Colorado. Ulrich hasn't been
able to find work that requires a college degree. Instead, he works at a
hardware store in Spokane, Washington earning the state's minimum wage:
$9.19 an hour.
A bell weather indicator of our economy has always been home ownership,
which is currently at an 18 year low. The U.S. homeownership rate, which
soared to a record high 69.2% in 2004 due to the federal government forcing
banks to give home loans to people who were not qualified and thus set the
country up for the financial crash, is back where it was two decades ago,
before the housing bubble inflated, busted and ripped more than 7 million
Americans from their homes. It's currently the lowest in almost 18 years
after averaging about 64% for 30 years through 1995. While property
ownership among senior citizens was little changed at about 81%, the share
below age 35 that own a home fell to about 37% from almost 42% five years
The bottom line is the country still is not moving forward in a meaningful
way. Here are the economic indicators for the past month.
On the plus side:
-The Institute for Supply Management’s non-manufacturing PMI checked in at
56 in July, from 52.2 in June. The reading beat estimates of 53
-A reading on consumer sentiment from Thomson Reuters and the University of
Michigan came in at 82.1 in late-August, up from 80 earlier in the month.
The reading slightly beat economists’ expectations of 80.5, but is the
lowest final number since April.
-The Institute for Supply Management-Chicago reports its gauge of
manufacturing activity in the Midwest rose to 53 in August from 52.3 in
July, matching economists’ expectations. Readings above 50 point to
expansion, while those below point to contraction.
-Consumer spending and personal income rose 0.1% in July from June. Consumer
spending was expected to rise 0.3%, while economists expected personal
income to rise 0.2%.
On the negative side:
-The National Association of Realtors reports pending home sales in July
fell 1.3%, much steeper than the 0.5% drop economists expected. Signed
contracts to buy previously-owned homes were still up 6.7% from the year
-Home prices in 20 major cities rose 2.2% in June, according to the
S&P/Case-Shiller index. Economists expected a slightly bigger gain of 2.3%.
Home prices were up 12.1% from the year prior.
-The Commerce Department reports orders for long-lasting goods plunged 7.3%
in July from June, compared to expectations of a 4% drop. Excluding the
transportation segment, orders fell 0.6%, missing expectations of a 0.5%
-The Commerce Department reports sales of new single-family homes dropped
13.4% to an annualized rate of 394,000 in July, widely missing expectations
of 490,000. It was the lowest reading since October 2012 and the biggest
drop since May 2010.
-UPS will follow thousands of other companies this fall in ending health
insurance coverage of employees' spouses if they can get coverage elsewhere.
-Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan’s gauge of consumer
sentiment fell in August to 80, from 85.1 in July. Economists expected the
measure to edge up to 85.5. The reading is the lowest since April.
-The New York Federal Reserve’s gauge of manufacturing activity fell to 8.24
in August, from 9.46 in July, missing consensus estimates of 10. Readings
above 0 indicate expansion, while those below indicate contraction.
-The Labor Department reports import prices edged higher by 0.2% in July
from June, shy of estimates of a 0.6% increase. Export prices dipped 0.1%,
compared to forecasts of a 0.2% rise.

For two years VetJobs has been generating a monthly Veterans Employment
Situation Report (VESR) which is being quoted in news articles. The report
is generated on the first Friday of each month when DOL and BLS release the
employment numbers. The VESR gives a cogent analysis of where the veteran
employment is taking place and reviews what the success rates of various
veteran groups have been in terms of finding employment. If you would like
to receive the VESR, please send an email to with VESR in
the subject line.

Finally, I have received an appointment to the Department of Education’s
Gainful Employment Negotiated Rulemaking Committee for 2013. This is an
important appointment as the Committee will be detailing how for-profit
schools are to be regulated. The Committee will meet for three days in
September and then for three days in October. See article #8 below for a
recent story about a predatory for-profit. Not all for-profit schools are
bad. For-profit schools have a legitimate place in American educational
society. But predatory for-profit schools like Career Education Corporation,
Kaplan and EDMC need to clean up their programs! I will keep you posted.

for themselves and their families. These contributing authors have chosen to
continue serving by h
elping others leaving the military avoid the hardships and struggles they
and many others have gone through. They are walking Point for their military
brothers and sisters.

4. TRICARE Retiree Dental Program Changes
Effective October 1, 2013, all TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP)
beneficiaries will be required to pay their monthly premiums by an
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or through military retired pay allotment.
The ability to pay premiums by check or through an online bill pay system
will end in September. Most TRDP enrollees will need to take no action;
however, Delta Dental sent letters to all TRDP participants on July 19 with
information on where to submit EFT authorization forms and how to submit an
EFT authorization online at
Delta Dental of California will continue managing the TRICARE Retiree Dental
Program through 2018. As a result of this continued relationship, TRDP
enhanced the program and overseas participants can look forward to several
changes effective January 1, 2014. These include:
-An increase in the annual maximum amount for each person enrolled to $1,300
-Coverage year will run from January 1 through December 31
-Maximums and deductibles will restart every January 1
-An increase in the annual maximum amount for dental accident coverage for
each person enrolled, to $1,200
-An increase in the lifetime orthodontic maximum amount for each person
enrolled to $1,750
-A third cleaning allowed for children and adults with documented Type 1 or
Type 2 diabetes
-A decrease in monthly premiums
TDRP basic participants can also look forward to a lower premium.
Current dental enrollment cards will remain valid under the new contract;
however, verification of TRDP eligibility and enrollment will be managed by
Defense Eligibility Enrollment System (DEERS).
TRICARE Retiree Dental Program is voluntary, premium based coverage. To get
more information about this benefit, visit
5. TAP Reorganized
The VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 requires a major renovation of the
military Transition Assistance Program (TAP). The program has been
redesigned into a comprehensive, mandatory program for separating/retiring
service members through the efforts of an interagency team from the
Departments of Defense (DOD), Veterans Affairs (VA), Labor (DOL), Education
(DOE), Homeland Security (DHS), plus the Office of Personnel Management
(OPM) and the Small Business Administration (SBA). The redesigned TAP is
known as Transition Goals Plans Success (GPS) or Transition GPS. It is
currently a pilot program that began at a few DOD installations last year
and is expected to replace the old TAP by the end of 2013.
6. Military Eligible Candidate Pool Shrinking
The VFW Washington Office received a briefing at the Pentagon about an Army
in transition after 12 years of nonstop war, the ongoing budget battle, and
the fact that America and her allies will still need a strong and flexible
Army after our forces exit Afghanistan in 2014. Approximately 130,000
soldiers separate from the Army annually, and even though budget decisions
have yet to decide how much smaller the future Army will be, recruiters are
facing one harsh reality today: The pool of eligible 17 to 24-year-old
recruits is shrinking on a national scale. There are 33.1 million Americans
aged 17 to 24, according to the 2012 U.S. Census, but according to the Army,
only 7.7 million were eligible to join the Army. The three-fourths ruled
ineligible were principally due to health medical and/or aptitude reasons
which mean military recruiters have to compete with industry as well as
colleges and universities for America's top youth.
7. DOD Caregiver Resources Guide
The Defense Department's Office of Warrior Care has compiled a Caregiver
Resource Directory specifically for the caregivers of recovering service
members. It includes contact information on more than 300 supportive
government and non-profit organizations, to include the VFW. The directory
is sorted by the most common, everyday needs, and is available in print and
downloadable electronic-versions. The e-version can be found at
To provide feedback on the Caregiver Resource Directory, or to request a
printed copy of the directory, please e-mail
