Department of Veterans Affairs: Priority Groups for Free Medical Care or Medical Care with Co-Payments

The Department of Veterans Affairs has come a long way since it was first established on July 21, 1930. You may come to find out that the VA still has a long way to go depending on what veteran you ask. I am a disabled veteran myself and receive all of my medical care from The Department of Veterans Affairs.

Stop Veterans Suicide!

Stop Veterans Suicide!

The Veteran Suicide rate has climbed to an estimated twenty-two veterans a day nationwide. Doing the simple math on that it means that nearly one veteran every hour will commit suicide.

Here at Rally Point Apparel we are pro-gun. We support every American’s 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms. It’s very unfortunate that you can’t turn on the news anymore without hearing a tragic story about a mass shooting. How do we stop this gun violence? Do we impose harsh restrictions on gun control? Do we make it hard for criminals and mentally unstable people to purchase guns legally?   Politicians seem to get in an uproar over gun control laws. They claim that a more strict set of gun control laws will help prevent gun violence. I agree that there...


PTSD Awareness

PTSD Awareness

Why is there such a negative stigma attached to combat veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? I feel like when somebody finds out that I have PTSD their mind immediately goes to the worst case scenario. They automatically assume that because I have PTSD at some point I’m going to flip my lid and go crazy on them. What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? PTSD is defined as an anxiety disorder that can occur following the experience of a traumatic event. A traumatic event is a life-threatening event such as military combat. It is very unfortunate, but many...
