In today’s episode, we welcome Peter Hartmayer, a Marine who served with Jim at Second Division Schools at Camp LeJeune. We discuss Veterans’ health issues, including cancer and PTSD treatments available through the VA. Another topic that came up is the importance of getting a Veterans Service Officer through organizations like the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), or the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
In the first episode of “Stand At Ease,” Jim, Gar, and David introduce themselves and how they came to know each other, discuss the mission of the show, and where their responsibilities lie. Keeping on track with that idea, they explore the different spheres of responsibility the active duty service member and veteran are beholden to and how our training helps us face them – as well as what happens when we forget what we’re trained to do.
Also introduced in this show are a few of the many services available to Veterans and their families, topics which will be expanded upon in future shows. Finally, there is an open invitation to others to participate in future “Stand At Ease” podcasts.
We are sorry but because of the the number of SPAM-BOTS that troll the web we have decided to deactivate this feature. However, we have placed a link on all of our pages that will give you a chance to give us feedback.
Thank you for visiting Stand at Ease. This web site is still under construction, however, our goal is to make this a place where veterans, and the family members who support veteran can create a community of others like you. We encourage you to join us in this effort.
