A constant question the Stand At Ease group asks is what does “Support the Troops” mean? Is it that faded yellow made in China magnet you paid $1.99 at Wal Mart that makes you feel good about yourself, or is it something more? In today’s discussion, Sita Helms, found member and executive director of Helping Hands Worldwide (http://thehelpinghandworldwide.org) shows us what it means to do just that and more. Our one hour discussion barely scratches the surface of what she does – and she is very humble about all she does.
And for what she does – its surprising she isn’t a Marine. Ooorah! (Edit this out if you want) NOPE, keeping it big D!
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.
