The name, Shades of Green signifies the camouflauge uniforms worn by the armed forces without singling out any one particular branch. The resort is fully self-supporting and operates with non-appropriated funds. All profits are turned back into the resort for improvements to the accommodations and services. **NOTE – Shades of Green requires notice of cancellation at least 30 days prior to arrival, or your credit card will be charged an amount equal to one night’s stay.

The 5 Best Military Travel Deals – US News #flight #and

#best travel deals
#

The best air and lodging discounts for active military, family, and affiliates.

To take advantage of Memorial Day weekend, the much-anticipated vacation period that kicks off the summer, many Americans are cutting back on entertainment spending, traveling locally, and hunting for travel deals.

Amidst this frantic budgeting and planning, it’s easy to forget that Memorial Day is a time to commemorate our nation’s military and its service to all Americans past, present, and future. To celebrate this holiday and show our appreciation to all who have served and continue to serve our nation, we tracked down the best military travel deals.

1. Most flexible lodging discounts for all military affiliates. Choice Hotels (which includes Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Econolodge, and more) offers the most flexible military discounts. While many military-discount programs only apply to active military (or active military on orders), Choice extends its discounts to active and retired military personnel and their families on business or leisure. Hotels are not required to offer any military discounts nor are they required to provide specific rates to qualify for government reimbursement of travel on orders. As such, military discounts on lodging are determined on a hotel-by-hotel basis. While it is always best to double-check in advance, Choice Hotel’s discount program provides many options nationwide so that military personnel can travel more easily.

2. Best air discounts for active military and families. Active military personnel and their dependents are allowed four free checked bags in coach (and five free checked bags in first class) at any time on Hawaiian Airlines. A valid military ID is the only requirement to qualify. Baggage fees generate billions of dollars in revenue for U.S. airlines and can cost travelers more than airfare. Given that some airlines, such as Spirit Airlines and JetBlue, do not offer any military baggage discounts, we think Hawaiian’s offer is great deal. For each passenger flying roundtrip, four checked bags would normally cost $620, according to Hawaiian’s baggage fee policy. The catch is that oversized and overweight fees may apply, so make sure each bag is smaller than 62” total (length + width + height) and weighs less than 50 pounds.

3. Military bags that really do fly free. True to its word, bags do fly free on Southwest Airlines. For civilians, however, that only applies to two checked bags. For active military personnel with identification, Southwest waives all baggage fees. including any oversize and overweight fees. Southwest has the most liberal (and most simple) discounts. While it does not extend the offer to military families, it is the best airline when traveling with multiple bags, particularly when those bags may be bulky and/or heavy. It is important to note that other airlines may allow several bags to be checked free, but they often place restrictions on the weight and size of each bag. Overweight and oversized bags do not always qualify for military discounts on other airlines.

4. No extra fees on car rentals . Hertz Rent-a-Car offers the most military benefits on car rentals. While all major car rental companies have military-discount programs on the base rental rate, these discounts vary. Similar to airlines, car rental companies typically make most of their profits on extra fees–not on the base rates. As such, we evaluated car rental discounts based on the number of extra fees it waived for active military. Hertz waived loss damage waiver/collision damage waiver (LDW / CDW) insurance, additional driver fees, unlimited mileage fees, underage driver fees, and space available upgrades. While Hertz was the clear winner, Avis did come in at a close second. It waives most all fees waived by Hertz, except for space available upgrades. Unfortunately, most car-rental military discounts only apply to active military. For veterans, we suggest obtaining a Veteran’s Advantage Card to access discounts at all major car rental services.

5. Best luxury military discounts. Everyone needs some quality rest and relaxation. Hard-working military personnel are no exception. For more luxurious lodging, we recommend Hyatt Hotels Resorts. Hyatt offers special rates to military personnel as long as identification can be provided at time of check-in. The savings from Hyatt’s military discount ranges greatly, though. You may get a great deal in some locations, depending on your dates of travel. However, not all hotels will be able to provide significant discounts. Make sure to check online and call. If you do opt for more comfortable lodging, Hyatt may be your best bet for a military discount.

Alicia Jao is the VP of Travel Media at NerdWallet, which recently launched an airline and baggage fee comparison tool to help you save money on air travel.

Veteran and Military Deals Discounts

There is no way we can ever properly thank members of the US Military for all that they have done. They are certainly not paid enough for their work and their great sacrifice. Iraq and Afghanistan have been particularly tough and stressful for members of the military, their families and loved ones.

We have found stores and services doing their part to make life easier by offering discounts to active, reserve, and retired members of the US Military and their immediate family members. We are also including a section of Veterans Day Specials that are being offered. Please help spread the word via Facebook, Twitter and Email to those you know in the military about this resource. If you have additional suggestions please comment below and they ll be added on an ongoing basis. For veterans of Iraq or Afghanistan, please check out IAVA. Members there are offered vouchers to many retail stores, such as JC Penney.

Two important caveats. First, some stores offer discounts only at the owner s discretion and other discounts vary by state. Second, many stores that give a military discount don t advertise it. It is always worth asking a store whether they have one or not and to have your military ID on you.

Get a Personal Loan for Your Small Business

Looking for small business loans? Prosper can help you get personal loans to use for your small business.

Loans through Prosper are not traditional small business loans. Personal loans through Prosper are based on your credit score, and issued to you as an individual (not a business). For some small business owners needing loans, a personal loan won’t answer their needs—but for other entrepreneurs, it’s perfect. In some cases, such as when a business doesn’t yet have a proven track record, our small business loans can provide lower rates or even just the ability to get a loan.

Whether it’s a personal loan for a new business, a small business, or a larger, more established one, turn to Prosper for access to unsecured personal loans at the rates you’ve been searching for.

Get Personal Loans for your New Business

Do you have a great idea for a first time new business, but lack sufficient backing for a loan? We understand getting new business loans can be challenging, but we may be able to help you and your new business with the loans you need.

Turn to Prosper for access to unsecured loans at great rates. You won’t need to put up any collateral or refinance your home to get the funds you need. Personal loans for small business use are issued to you as an individual, and are dependent on your good credit. Because of this, Prosper can be great help for a new small business.

Need a Personal Loan for your Small Business?

Being your own boss in a small business often isn’t easy — but the rewards can be immeasurable. If you need loans for your small business, you’ve come to the right place.

One of the most difficult roadblocks to overcome can be finding the right small business loan at the great rate you need. And yet, small businesses provide the essential financial backbone in our local communities. At Prosper, we understand this.

Personal loans can be a sensible alternative to small business loans in situations where the small business doesn’t yet have a solid history of profit, or can’t currently provide the documentation and analysis a bank requires to consider a small business loan. The personal loan is issued to an individual—the business owner—based on their credit. It is ultimately their responsibility to pay back the loan.

Prosper is the right choice for Personal Loans for your Small Business

Prosper makes the entire process of getting loans for your new business or existing business easy. If you are new to Prosper, simply join as a borrower and request a loan by creating a listing. You choose the amount.

Why not apply now. It s easy to get loans, and posting a loan listing is absolutely free.

Can I obtain a loan with bad credit?

If you’re certain you have bad credit, Prosper may not be right for you at this time. Consider taking a few months to improve your credit rating, and then apply.

Do you need perfect credit to obtain a loan through Prosper? Not at all. Few of us have perfect credit. If you have average or above average credit, Prosper can be a terrific place to get access to low interest rate loans for you and your new business.

Don t believe us? See for yourself: Get rate now .

There may be Prosper investors out there who are specifically targeting start-ups that need new business loans. We want to help you reach your dreams.

Does my credit score affect my loan?

Yes. If you are sure you have bad credit, you may want to consider improving it before you apply. If you are not sure if you d qualify, we can help you find out now. for free, with no obligation.

Choose the right fit for your business

*For example, a three year $10,000 loan with a rate of 5.99% APR would have 36 scheduled monthly payments of $302. A five year $10,000 loan with a rate of 9.68% APR would have 60 scheduled monthly payments of $201. Annual percentage rates (APRs) through Prosper range from 5.99% APR (AA) to 36.00% APR (HR) for first-time borrowers, with the lowest rates for the most creditworthy borrowers. Eligibility is not guaranteed, and requires that a sufficient number of investors commit funds to your account and that you meet credit and other conditions. Refer to Borrower Registration Agreement for details and all terms and conditions. All loans made by WebBank, member FDIC.

Prosper and WebBank take your privacy seriously. Please see Prosper’s Privacy Policy and WebBank’s Privacy Policy for more details.

Prosper does not verify all information provided by borrowers in listings. Investors should review the prospectus before investing.

*Seasoned Return calculations represent historical performance data for the Borrower Payment Dependent Notes (”Notes”) issued and sold by Prosper since July 15, 2009. To be included in the calculations, Notes must be associated with a borrower loan originated more than 10 months ago; this calculation uses loans originated through May 31, 2012. Our research shows that Prosper Note returns historically have shown increased stability after they’ve reached ten months of age. For that reason, we provide “Seasoned Returns”, defined as the Return for Notes aged 10 months or more.

To calculate the Return, all payments received on borrower loans, net of principal repayment, credit losses, and servicing costs for such loans, are aggregated and then divided by the average daily amount of aggregate outstanding principal. To annualize this cumulative return, it is divided by the dollar-weighted average age of the loans in days and then multiplied by 365.

All calculations were made as of September 30th, 2013. Seasoned Return is not necessarily indicative of the future performance on any Notes.

MILITARY CAR INSURANCE

WHAT DO OUR MILITARY CAR INSURANCE POLICIES INCLUDE?

  • Multi Car policies.
  • Policies available for serving personnel aged 21 and over providing 1 years no claims bonus.
  • Immediate cover available.
  • Policies include on base coverage.
  • Premiums may change if you get posted.
  • Business mileage coverage.
  • BFG policies available for customers outside of the U.S.A.

GET MILITARY CAR INSURANCE IN 5 EASY STEPS

Step 1: Contact the USAA
The USAA, or United States Automobile Association, is the most popular provider of military car insurance. They offer great deals on insurance; they provide free online quotes for members and non-members alike. To do this, visit the USAA website and click on “Products and Services,” then “Insurance” and choose “Auto Insurance” from the drop-down menu. You can find the “Get a Quote” feature on this page.

Step 2: Contact the AFI
The AFI, or Armed Forces Insurance, is another major source of auto insurance for military personnel. The “Quote and Compare” feature, which you can find on the front page of their website will give you instant military car insurance quotes which you may use to compare.

Step 3: Contact Other Providers
Although the USAA is the number one source of military car insurance, other providers may offer military car insurance discounts as well.
Free Online Quotations search engine goes through a complete database of military car insurance companies. Let FIQ’s search engine check the rates of other providers, helping you find cheap military auto insurance is our number one goal. When searching, specify that you are or were a member of the military, contact the insurance providers by phone to inquire about available military car insurance discounts.

Step 4: Compare Rates
After our search, you should have a fairly substantial list of military auto insurance quotes. All things being equal, it should be simple to pick out the best deal for you: just look for the lowest rates.

Step 5: Get Insured
Once FIQ’s military insurance quotes have found you the best policy, contact them through their website or phone. A company representative will be able assist you through the process of getting military car insurance to cover your vehicle. In order to expedite the process, make sure you have any relevant information already on hand, like your driver’s license, car’s VIN, and social security number.

OTHER SPECIAL AUTO INSURANCE FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL

If you are deployed and need storage for your vehicle, ask you insurance company about their policies. Auto insurance for military personnel should have considerations for deployed personnel. You may need auto insurance during your deployment. It would be a good idea to speak to your military auto insurance agent about the procedures for storing your vehicle and driving in a foreign country.

FIQ specializes in helping you how to get military auto insurance and the best rates possible. Besides the standard questions, there are certain things that you should share when you shop around for military discount car insurance:

  • Your driving record.
  • Your vehicle’s safety record.
  • How often you use the car (especially if you do not drive your car to work).
  • Home ownership.
  • Smoking status.
  • Where you keep the car.

MILITARY CAR INSURANCE: DISCOUNTS, COMPANIES AND QUOTES

A number of insurance companies offer cheap military car insurance. Discounts apply to young drivers and those who are veterans too, and often to those who are spouses or adult children of those in a branch of the services.

Discounts are available for military personnel because they and their families are considered a special case scenario. Because of deployment and frequent moving around, military personnel and their families would be penalized and charged higher rates if they had no special provisions.

In the past, when deployed overseas, military personnel often chose to discontinue their coverage. This became an unwelcomed gap to car insurance companies, and they lost their military car insurance discount as a result. Now, companies usually give a waiver to a member of the armed forces, letting them maintain their discount.

Emergency Deployment Discount

The department of defense considers some areas of the world to be extremely dangerous. If you are being deployed in that area, and have your vehicle stored in an approved storage facility, you are eligible for the emergency deployment discount.

Check with your insurer to see if they offer this discount. Some insurers offer other military discounts to members of professional military associations, such as the AFSA, AUSA, etc. Again, check with the insurance company to learn the exact details.

Comparison Shopping:

FIQ’s search engine will find you the cheapest military car insurance quotes. When searching for Military car insurance companies, start with a company you have insured with in the past. Be sure to tell them of your active duty, retired or reserve status, and inquire about all the possible discounts for which you may be eligible. After receiving the first quote, don’t stop there. With FIQ, the work is done for you. We will check with several competitors. We are the experts on where to get military car insurance quotes.

COMPANIES

Thankfully, there are a few companies that specialize in military auto insurance discounts and all of them have extensive experience in this field.

USAA

USAA, the United Services Automobile Association, specializes in services for the military, including cheap military car insurance. If you remain accident-free for 5 years, your premium won’t rise if you have one just accident.

They’re very alert to military needs, and can arrange premium payments according to your pay schedule.

USAA is one of the leading companies for working with military personnel in the US, and very flexible to needs and changing situations, including deployment to danger pay zones.

GEICO

GEICO is one of best companies for dealing with military personnel. The company offers a 15 percent discount to everyone on active duty, as well as to retired military personnel and active or retired National Guard members. This can lead to great savings.

GEICO also offers cheap auto insurance for the military sent into danger pay areas. These emergency deployment discounts apply to anyone deployed to these zones, and are in effect as long as your vehicle is stored under one of the company-approved storage protection plans.

They have a dedicated Military Assistance Team, made up of former service personnel. Whatever branch of the service you were in, even the National Guard, you qualify for the discounted military car insurance. There are payment plans available, and a 24-hour helpline for those who need it.

Armed Forces Insurance

Working with Progressive, Armed Forces Insurance offers insurance in 10 states, and also offers cheap car insurance for the military in another 28 states. They have most of the country covered.

Armed Forces Insurance is a member-owned and non-profit organization, setting it apart from other insurance companies. Members have access to the company 24 hours a day via the Web, which helps if you are stationed remotely. You do need to have the paperwork to prove you are serving, or were honorably discharged, and then you may qualify for a discount. Membership of AFI can include spouses, children, and also widows.

QUOTES

When deployed, military car insurance is probably the last thing a member of the military wants to think about. You have yourself and your family to consider first and foremost, but unfortunately, these matters must be dealt with. Many insurance companies offer discounts for military personnel, but make sure you will not be penalized for discontinuing coverage while you are deployed. There are many respectable insurance companies who appreciate what you do for your country. Let FIQ ease this difficult time by finding you the cheapest military car insurance quotes on the internet.

Air Force One Has New Defensive Systems, Antennas #what #is #ptsd,

Defense Media Network

Air Force One Has New Defensive Systems, Antennas

Plans for a new presidential aircraft by the end of the decade have been set aside, but the current flying White House is constantly being upgraded and has been observed with new communications and defensive systems.

A new aircraft was once expected sooner. We have recognized for several years now that the Air Force One replacement is out there in our future in the late teens, Air Force Secretary Michael Donley said in September 2011. But since then, the recapitalization plan has been put on hiatus.

The tail cone of Air Force One bristles with defensive systems at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. in June 2012. Photo and annotations by John Gourley

President Barack Obama famously criticized Detroit automobile executives for using business jets to fly to Washington for a Capitol Hill appearance. That, plus a simple absence of funding, means that what the Air Force calls Presidential Aircraft Recapitalization (PAR) is going nowhere. In the past the Air Staff quoted a target date of 2017, and later revised it to 2019. More recently, officials say a new plane for the commander-in-chief is still farther away.

The Boeing 747-8 and Airbus A380 have been named as possible candidates to replace the existing presidential Boeing 747s. In 2009, Airbus s parent company said it would offer a candidate to any competition for a new Air Force One.

There appears to be no issue of structural fatigue with the presidential 747s. As of 2009, the last year for which figures were released, each aircraft had flown about 6,500 hours and was expected to log 450 hours per year. A 747 airliner of the same vintage, kept in the air far more often, would have at least ten times as many airframe hours on its structure.

Bumps and Bulges

Multi-purpose conformal antennas are almost flush against the fuselage side of this VC-25A presidential aircraft at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. in June 2012.
Photo and annotations by John Gourley

Air Force One is the radio callsign for any Air Force aircraft with the president aboard. The term is used conversationally to refer to two VC-25As, or Boeing 747-200s (serial numbers 86-28000 and 86-29000) that have pulled presidential transportation duty since 1990. George H. W. Bush was the first president to fly on one of the 747s.

The aircraft are flown by the Presidential Airlift Group (PAG), and belong to Air Mobility Command s 89th Airlift Wing, based at Andrews AFB, Md.

During a stop at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. in June, aircraft 86-29000 was seen to be equipped with various items that help keep the president in touch and provide security.

Not new to the VC-25A:

  • About five AN/ALQ-204 Matador infrared (IR) countermeasures devices are located at the tail and behind the four engines, Previously used on the VC-137C (Boeing 707-320B) presidential aircraft and on airliners and executive aircraft, the device emits pulsed IR signals to foil attacks by heat-seeking missiles.

Thought to be new or recent additions to the VC-25A:

  • An AN/AAR-54(V) missile launch warning receiver located at the tail is intended to report and track missile threats by zeroing in on their ultraviolet exhaust signature. The receiver is also in use on special-operations warplanes like the MC-130H Combat Talon II.
  • The AN/AAQ-24 Nemesis Directional Infra-Red Counter Measures (DIRCM) system, which can be directed by the AAR-54, fires pulsating flashes of IR energy that confuse a missile s guidance system.
  • Conformal antennas: the VC-25As have been retrofitted with multi-purpose conformal antennas adaptable to satellite communications systems and other purposes. They resemble Band-Aids or patches but are, in fact, antennas that appear to have no effect on the aerodynamic performance of the 747.

Travel Discounts for Military Members and Veterans

One of the most popular questions we receive is about travel discounts for military members and veterans. While there are some excellent discounts available for eligible military members and veterans, some other discounts can be more difficult to track down, and may not be worth it once you find it. Many companies don t have express policies for military discounts, and the companies that do may have limitations on availability (for example, the discounts may only apply to active duty members traveling on official military orders).

Let s take a look at some of the travel discounts out there, and how you can save on your travel, even if you aren t able to score a military discount .

Military Travel Discounts

To make things easier, let s break these discounts into categories, including air travel, lodging and resorts, and everything else.

Discount Airline Tickets: Most airlines offer a military discount, but you won t find these offers listed on travel websites. You will need to visit the airline website or call their customer service department to get the discounts. Many airlines also waive the checked bag fees for military members, especially when they are traveling on orders. One of the most important things you need to know about military discounts is that they are often only available for active duty or members of the Guard/Reserves, and are sometimes only available when the member is traveling on official orders. Many military discounts for airline travel are also given as a flat percentage off the full-price fare and may not be the best price available. In many cases you can find a better deal through discount travel websites.

Space-A Travel. Space available travel is great in theory, but may be limited in practice. As the government continues to downsize, the availability of Space-A travel becomes more and more limited. In general, Space-A travel is only open to active duty military, members of the Reserve Corps, retirees, and dependents of these groups. There are some scheduled trips which happen like clockwork and can be easy to jump onto, but in general, it is hard to reliably plan on using Space-A travel unless you live close to a participating unit, you have a flexible travel schedule, and you have a solid backup plan (which may include buying a last minute ticket on the economy if your Space-A flight falls through). According to the Air Mobility Command (AMC):

The best resource is to either visit the AMC Travel Site. or contact the nearest military passenger terminal (a list of Passenger Terminals is available on the AMC Travel Site).  The terminal staff will have the most current information.  If you plan to travel Space A, contact the passenger terminal(s) where you plan to depart from.

Discounts on Lodging and Resorts

Hotel Discounts. I have found that most hotel chains will offer military discounts, provided there isn t a major event going on (for example, you will be hard pressed to get a military discount at a hotel chain in NYC over New Year s Eve, or a similar time when most hotels are fully booked). Many hotel chains are also willing to cap their rates at the local per diem rate, which can equal a substantial savings, depending on the hotel chain and location. Rates capped at the per diem rate may require official orders, and almost always require an active duty or Guard/Reserve ID card.

Base Lodging. Most decent size bases have lodging available. It is generally available to active duty, retirees, members of the Guard/Reserves, and dependents of these groups. Base lodging is generally much cheaper than hotels on the economy and are usually very clean and well-maintained. Some bases may be off the beaten path in terms of where they are located, but depending on where you are traveling, the cost savings may be worth the small inconvenience.

Military Resorts. The Armed Forces Recreation Centers offer exceptional discounts off comparable locations. Some popular resorts include the:

You can find more information at the Armed Forces Recreation Center website. Other options include the Armed Forces Vacation Club website and Veterans Holidays website. Some of these vacation plans offer exceptional value. Be sure to double check eligibility before making any reservations. In many cases, eligibility is limited to active duty, Guard/Reserve, retirees, and surviving spouses, and the families of those members.

Other Military Travel Discounts

Rental cars. Many rental cars have negotiated rates with government agencies. If you are traveling on official orders, you should be able to get a great rate. You may also be able to get a similar rate if you are on personal business and have a military ID card or retiree. These rates aren t usually available for those who are no longer serving and didn t reach retirement.

Savings through the travel websites. Personally, I usually find the best deals by using the travel websites like Travelocity. Priceline. Hotels.com. Expedia. and similar sites. They typically have the best inventory and you can often compare prices between multiple airlines.

Credit cards and rewards programs. Using a travel rewards program can help you earn points and benefits such as free checked bags, priority boarding, free flights, free nights at a hotel, and other perks. These are even better when used in conjunction with a credit card rewards program. Some of the more popular travel credit cards are a joint offering between a credit card company and a specific airline or hotel chain. Many come with a sign up bonus equal to a free flight or several nights stay at a hotel. Some of them have an annual fee (usually waived for the first year, depending on the credit card issuer), and some come with additional perks, such as bonus points for purchases on a branded airline/hotel, free checked bags for you and your party, priority boarding, discounts on flights and merchandise, and other benefits. Some even come with a free flight or free night stay as part of the annual renewal fee, which essentially cancels out your annual fee. Here are some lists of the current credit offers you may find helpful: military credit cards. airline cards. travel cards .

As with all credit cards, be sure to read the fine print before signing up for any deals, and be sure to pay your card in full each month to avoid any fees or interest.

Finding the Best Travel Discounts Takes Time

In my experience, booking the best travel deals requires a little legwork and a lot of patience. If you are traveling on military orders, always check with your unit before booking travel. They may have access to special offers, or may have other requirements.

If you are traveling on your own, then start with your itinerary, and determine whether or not you can work some of the military specific travel options such as Space-A, Armed Forces Recreation Centers, or base lodging into your plans. If you can, then you can usually save a substantial amount of money on your trip. If you aren t able to work one or more of those into your itinerary, then you can always go look at the travel websites mentioned above. Worst case scenario, you get the same deal everyone else gets.

Best of luck, and safe travels!

VA Loans, Divorce, and Surviving Spouses #military #va #loans

VA Loan Articles

News, updates, and explanations to keep you informed.

VA Loans, Divorce, and Surviving Spouses

VA field offices handle all sorts of common questions about VA mortgages. One of the common topics is related to what happens to a VA loan or the ability to apply for one after divorce. If a couple gets divorced, is the non-veteran spouse entitled to VA loan benefits after the divorce?

The simple answer is that VA loans are a benefit for military members. Military spouses are included in the benefit “by association.” When both husband and wife have their incomes included on a VA loan application, for example, it’s because of the spouse’s association with the veteran that he or she is included and considered the same as the veteran. (Non-veterans who are not married and apply for VA loans with a veteran are considered differently)

For an ex-spouse who is not a veteran, the divorced/separated spouse would not have access to the VA benefit unless there is active participation by the veteran. The veteran would have to agree to be obligated on the VA home loan. If the spouse got a general power of attorney to take out a loan on the veteran’s behalf when the couple were still married, that would be a separate issue, but a non-veteran cannot initiate a VA home loan on behalf of a veteran.

Those are the basic rules for divorce. The rules are different for surviving spouses of military members who have died on active duty or as a result of a service-connected issue. Those who have existing VA home loans would be authorized to refinance them, and under the right circumstances a surviving spouse may be eligible to purchase a new home with a VA mortgage.

On this issue, the VA official site states the following:

“Surviving spouses of Veterans who died from nonservice-connected causes may also be eligible if any of the following conditions are met: The Veteran was rated totally service-connected disabled for 10 years or more immediately preceding death, or was rated totally disabled for not less than five years from date of discharge or release from active duty to date of death, or was a former prisoner of war who died after Sept. 30, 1999, and was rated totally service-connected disabled for not less than one year immediately preceding death.”

The VA also may consider eligible “the surviving spouse of a Veteran who dies on active duty or from service-connected causes, who remarries on or after attaining age 57 and on or after Dec. 16, 2003.”

Serving the Active-Duty
Military Student

How WGU Serves the Active-Duty Military Student

Serving the Active-Duty Military Student

WGU is a great university for the active-duty service member who wants to earn a degree and benefit from the flexibility of online learning. Our competency-based online degree programs allow you to benefit from your existing knowledge. Our mentors and staff provide continuous support to help you make progress at your own pace. And our policies are “military friendly.”

At the same time, however, it’s important to understand when WGU is not the right choice. Our programs are designed to serve the degree-seeking student, not someone who is just looking to complete a few courses. If you think you may want to complete a degree program at WGU perhaps even one started somewhere else we may be a great fit. However, if you are looking for just individual courses, you will be better served at another online or traditional university.

Flat-Rate and Per-competency Unit Options for Students Using Tuition Assistance

WGU normally serves full-time students. However, we also offer a part-time per-competency unit option for service members who are using military tuition assistance. (This option is not available to regular WGU students or to veterans using benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill .)

  • Full-time flat-rate option: The Degree Plan for a normal full-time student typically assumes the student will complete 12 to 13 competency units (CUs; credit equivalents) per six-month term. The student may actually complete more CUs than are included in the plan if the student is able to progress faster. Many do complete more. The flat-rate tuition option for students in a graduate program requires a minimum of 8 CUs.
  • Military part-time option: Under this option, the Degree Plan of a part-time student will be scheduled for a specific number of competency units per six-month term. The allowed range is 5 to 8 CUs per term for undergraduate programs (4 to 7 for graduate programs). The specific number of CUs will depend upon the Course of Study for a particular program and the student’s own situation. The student will not be allowed to continue on beyond the allotted CUs until the next term, even if the student completes the required assessments early in the term.

Note: Some programs are designed with integrated content and assessments that necessitate the student be enrolled full-time for at least one term. (Contact your Military Education Officer for details.)

Programs Offered with the Part-time Option

    Asbestos – Public Health #asbestos, #hazard, #hazardous, #military, #exposure, #benefits, #health


    #

    Public Health

    Asbestos

    Exposure to asbestos can be a serious health risk if asbestos-containing material is disturbed in such a way that the particles and fibers become airborne. Symptoms of asbestos-related diseases, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain, often do not appear until 20 to 50 years after the exposure.

    If you are concerned about health problems associated with asbestos exposure during your military service, talk to your health care provider or local VA Environmental Health Coordinator .

    How Veterans may have been exposed to asbestos

    Veterans who served in any of the following occupations may have been exposed to asbestos: mining, milling, shipyard work, insulation work, demolition of old buildings, carpentry and construction, manufacturing and installation of products such as flooring and roofing.

    Veterans who served in Iraq and other countries in that region could have been exposed to asbestos when older buildings were damaged and the contaminant released into the air.

    Health problems associated with exposure to asbestos

    Breathing asbestos mainly causes problems in the lungs and the membrane that surrounds the lungs, including:

    • Asbestosis. Scarring of lung tissue that causes breathing problems, usually in workers exposed to asbestos in workplaces before the Federal government began regulating asbestos use (mid-1970s).
    • Pleural plaques. Scarring in the inner surface of the ribcage and area surrounding the lungs that can cause breathing problems, though usually not as serious as asbestosis. People living in areas with high environmental levels of asbestos, as well as workers, can develop pleural plaques.
    • Cancer. The two types of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos are lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin lining surrounding the lung (pleural membrane) or abdominal cavity (the peritoneum). Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer usually caused by asbestos exposure.

    Learn more about asbestos and its health effects from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

    Health concerns?

    If you are concerned about health problems associated with exposure to asbestos during your military service, talk to your health care provider or local VA Environmental Health Coordinator .

    VA offers a variety of health care benefits to eligible Veterans. Not enrolled in the VA health care system? Find out if you qualify for VA health care .

    Compensation benefits for health problems

    Veterans may file a claim for disability compensation for health problems they believe are related to exposure to asbestos during military service. VA decides these claims on a case-by-case basis. File a claim online .

    Veteran and Military Deals Discounts

    There is no way we can ever properly thank members of the US Military for all that they have done. They are certainly not paid enough for their work and their great sacrifice. Iraq and Afghanistan have been particularly tough and stressful for members of the military, their families and loved ones.

    We have found stores and services doing their part to make life easier by offering discounts to active, reserve, and retired members of the US Military and their immediate family members. We are also including a section of Veterans Day Specials that are being offered. Please help spread the word via Facebook, Twitter and Email to those you know in the military about this resource. If you have additional suggestions please comment below and they ll be added on an ongoing basis. For veterans of Iraq or Afghanistan, please check out IAVA. Members there are offered vouchers to many retail stores, such as JC Penney.

    Two important caveats. First, some stores offer discounts only at the owner s discretion and other discounts vary by state. Second, many stores that give a military discount don t advertise it. It is always worth asking a store whether they have one or not and to have your military ID on you.

    The 5 Best Military Travel Deals – US News #maritime #travel

    The best air and lodging discounts for active military, family, and affiliates.

    To take advantage of Memorial Day weekend, the much-anticipated vacation period that kicks off the summer, many Americans are cutting back on entertainment spending, traveling locally, and hunting for travel deals.

    Amidst this frantic budgeting and planning, it’s easy to forget that Memorial Day is a time to commemorate our nation’s military and its service to all Americans past, present, and future. To celebrate this holiday and show our appreciation to all who have served and continue to serve our nation, we tracked down the best military travel deals.

    1. Most flexible lodging discounts for all military affiliates. Choice Hotels (which includes Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Econolodge, and more) offers the most flexible military discounts. While many military-discount programs only apply to active military (or active military on orders), Choice extends its discounts to active and retired military personnel and their families on business or leisure. Hotels are not required to offer any military discounts nor are they required to provide specific rates to qualify for government reimbursement of travel on orders. As such, military discounts on lodging are determined on a hotel-by-hotel basis. While it is always best to double-check in advance, Choice Hotel’s discount program provides many options nationwide so that military personnel can travel more easily.

    2. Best air discounts for active military and families. Active military personnel and their dependents are allowed four free checked bags in coach (and five free checked bags in first class) at any time on Hawaiian Airlines. A valid military ID is the only requirement to qualify. Baggage fees generate billions of dollars in revenue for U.S. airlines and can cost travelers more than airfare. Given that some airlines, such as Spirit Airlines and JetBlue, do not offer any military baggage discounts, we think Hawaiian’s offer is great deal. For each passenger flying roundtrip, four checked bags would normally cost $620, according to Hawaiian’s baggage fee policy. The catch is that oversized and overweight fees may apply, so make sure each bag is smaller than 62” total (length + width + height) and weighs less than 50 pounds.

    3. Military bags that really do fly free. True to its word, bags do fly free on Southwest Airlines. For civilians, however, that only applies to two checked bags. For active military personnel with identification, Southwest waives all baggage fees. including any oversize and overweight fees. Southwest has the most liberal (and most simple) discounts. While it does not extend the offer to military families, it is the best airline when traveling with multiple bags, particularly when those bags may be bulky and/or heavy. It is important to note that other airlines may allow several bags to be checked free, but they often place restrictions on the weight and size of each bag. Overweight and oversized bags do not always qualify for military discounts on other airlines.

    4. No extra fees on car rentals . Hertz Rent-a-Car offers the most military benefits on car rentals. While all major car rental companies have military-discount programs on the base rental rate, these discounts vary. Similar to airlines, car rental companies typically make most of their profits on extra fees–not on the base rates. As such, we evaluated car rental discounts based on the number of extra fees it waived for active military. Hertz waived loss damage waiver/collision damage waiver (LDW / CDW) insurance, additional driver fees, unlimited mileage fees, underage driver fees, and space available upgrades. While Hertz was the clear winner, Avis did come in at a close second. It waives most all fees waived by Hertz, except for space available upgrades. Unfortunately, most car-rental military discounts only apply to active military. For veterans, we suggest obtaining a Veteran’s Advantage Card to access discounts at all major car rental services.

    5. Best luxury military discounts. Everyone needs some quality rest and relaxation. Hard-working military personnel are no exception. For more luxurious lodging, we recommend Hyatt Hotels Resorts. Hyatt offers special rates to military personnel as long as identification can be provided at time of check-in. The savings from Hyatt’s military discount ranges greatly, though. You may get a great deal in some locations, depending on your dates of travel. However, not all hotels will be able to provide significant discounts. Make sure to check online and call. If you do opt for more comfortable lodging, Hyatt may be your best bet for a military discount.

    U.S. Military Discount Flights Travel Tips

    Whether you’re headed to an island or the mainland, you’re ready to enjoy your leave, alone or with family and friends. See which airlines offer military flight and vacation travel discounts.

    Military Discount Flights: What to Do First

    If you served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, National Guard, Air Force or the Coast Guard, we can help you navigate the many military discount flight options. But first, some quick tips.

    • Call first: It s always best to call the airline and ask about armed forces airfare discounts. There is usually a phone number in FAQ specific to military discounts. Have your military identification information handy.
    • Explore options: The Armed Forces Vacation Club offers active U.S. military, veterans and retirees discount vacation accommodations in more than 100 countries with a variety of booking options to fit your budget and leave time.
    • Compare fares: Military discounts on airfares are usually discounts based on full fares only. This means you can often get a lower fare by simply searching for cheap airfare tickets and comparing prices .

    Military Flight Discounts by Airline

    • American Airlines : 1 st. 2 nd and 3 rd checked bags are free for active military and their families. You can call 1-800-433-7300 to see if there is a military or government discount for the city you ll be traveling to. See www.aa.com/military for more information.
    • Delta Air Lines : Military fares must be booked in person or by phone. Active duty military members traveling on orders may check up to four bags on Delta Connection flights for free, and two free checked-bags for personal travel. Dependents and family members are also eligible for discounts. Those in the SkyMiles program can be flown to visit wounded military relatives at military hospitals as part of the Delta Cares program.
    • Southwest Airlines : Discount fares for military personnel and dependents. These tickets must be booked by calling 1-800-I-FLY-SWA to book. Southwest also allows military traveling on active duty or permanent change of station orders three or more checked-bags for free, and there is no charge for oversize of overweight luggage.
    • United Airlines : Members of the military and dependents are eligible for reduced domestic fares on all days with no advance purchase requirements. Seats are limited, however. Sign up for Veteran’s Advantage and you will receive a 10-digit travel discount code that can be used to book United travel. Another perk: Military personnel on Rest and Recuperation (R R) leave from any operation with military leave orders have access to United Clubs (have your military ID and a copy of the orders or leave authorization for entrance).
