Michael Stuart's curator insight, September 6, 2013 11:24 AM

Mary Jayne and her husband, Bill Durham, enjoy the Bethany Beach boardwalk with service dog Anastasia. Restaurants offered the wounded veterans and their families free meals, and other businesses provided food, kayak rides and other gifts.


Jeremy Muncert attends a welcoming reception with Page, his service dog, in Bethany Beach. The veterans who received a week at the beach wear VIF (Very Important Family) dog tags that get them free ice cream cones, lunches, golf games, spa treatments and other amenities. Giant provided four bags of groceries to every family, restaurants are serving them free dinners, and bike rentals are on the house.


Krislyn Kaukeano, left, of New Jersey, sits by a bonfire on the beach after Bethany Beach, Del., residents welcomed her and other wounded veterans to a week at the beach. Kaukeano, 30, suffers post-traumatic stress disorder from her time driving trucks in Iraq. On her first run there during the war, her best friend was blown up. Kaukeano’s was the recovery vehicle. “There is no therapy like talking to someone else with PTSD,” she said.

Obama cuts military pay; bypasses law- again

Obama cuts military pay; bypasses law- again | Military | Scoop.it
Obamalaw will cut military pay raises by almost half

Obama has informed Congress that come 2014, he will cut down in spending for the first time known to man by capping military pay raises at one percent. This executive move will be in violation of federal law, which, according to The Examiner, requires “those raises to keep pace with the Employment Cost Index compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

The House of Representatives under Republican leadership approved a pay raise of 1.8 percent, but Obama is able to move ahead with the cuts by citing a loophole in the law that permits pay decreases in the case of “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare.”
