The effect of EMF Electro Magnetic Fields/ RF-MV Radio Frequencies-Micro Waves 

The first two links are relate to the title, the third isn’t.  One has to think if some sudden deaths of people taking antidepressants are caused by EMF’s?? 





VRC web site is up 


            The web site is up and in the next week or so it will take shape.  Helping returning from the front US Military Veterans must come first.  Citizens using their own money to build rent free single person tiny structures for US Military Veterans to find their way back is positive action.  Neighbors or any other person that speaks against helping US Military Veterans returning needing help but the flawed system we have is what the naysayers use as the reason not to help these (Veterans) citizens in their neighborhood.  Put the homeless US Military Veteran in any other town or neighborhood but ours.  101 Stepping Stone Rd Veteran Resort-Chapel is not the complete solution to helping all the homeless US Military Veterans that exist in NH alone.  635 registered homeless US Military Veterans exist in this State of New Hampshire.  This is only the registered homeless US Military Veterans.  All homeless US Military Veterans are not drug addicts or alcoholics.  Some are people just like you or anyone else that lost their job or the spouse took everything in the divorce.  Some of these Homeless US Military Veterans are disabled and unable to swim the maze of protocol to get the VA Medical care they need.  The VA turns away just as many veterans seeking help from the effects of their military service because there is no proof of it happening during combat.  I know because of the years of struggle even though I have four service-connected disabilities.  Three of my disabilities are Combat related.  I had a copy of my military medical file so every time the VA lost it I could give them a copy. They say they are working to correct the problems but they say that after every new wave of combat veterans return.  The problems today’s veterans suffer from the VA is the same as before just a new label.   

            On May 29 the Lee ZBA will meet and the subject is the wrongful action of the Town of Lee NH denying the VRC a building permit even though the area is zoned for what was asked to build.  The naysayers tell me that my bad mouthing the selectmen and planning board members that use their government position to make the resident of Lee believe that the VRC is not zoned in this area to build.  The selectmen and planning board member live in this neighborhood and do not want “these type people” (their own words) in their area.  These naysayers make the public believe that I am a danger or mentally ill.  I volunteer almost every day of the week to help other people.  I am not badmouthing any person.  If they do not want me to speak publicly about their actions then do not do it. 

            I am a 100% disabled US Marine from the Vietnam Conflict. My wife and I are using our life savings to help other US Military Veterans. A veteran helping other US Military Veterans not go through what my coming home was.  The newspapers refuse to print the letters to the editor from the VRC informing the residents of these government wrongs.  Ignorant citizens lead to more government wrongs when the next person enters the wrong neighborhood.  Think about it?

Groups should protest Shaheen, not the IRS

To the editor,

Groups in NH who may have been targeted by the IRS should know that despite her expression of disapproval this was done at the request of some US Senators, including their own Jeanne Shaheen in both 2010 and 2012. This is not the first time Shaheen has shown herself to be a hypocrite.

Shaheen’s Manchester and Hampstead offices are where the 2007 NH tea party movement was involved in protests after the Affordable Healthcare Act was introduced with the election of Obama in 2008. Shaheen was being called out for her refusal to hold any Obamacare town halls. After 80 of us showed up at her Hampstead office, she lied about our efforts by putting out a completely false and misleading press release blaming us for blocking her "constituents" from getting help.

Imagine if you will, that she contended we were not her NH constituents when we were, and when it was really our group that was being blocked? No one from out of state, paid for by “Washington insiders, insurance companies, or well-financed special interests” as she claimed we were, would ever have been allowed to be part of our group. However, there were exactly 3 supporters of Obamacare who stood outside. They wore purple shirts and admitted to us that they were paid to be there by SEIU of Massachusetts, including an illegal alien.

We will remember come election time.

Lee NH commuity profile the truth

Lee  NH  homeless veterans

            The UL had two great articles today.  One being “Club house” about how The Brookside Congregational Church of Somersworth NH is hosting a place for mentally and physically impaired to have a future.  The neighbors are all for such a place to exist but not in their neighborhood.  Then on the Veterans page “Motor vehicle crashes” how returning combat veterans have a 75% chance of being in a car crash compared to those that never serve.  The Veteran Resort-Chapel (that my wife and I put our life savings to purchase the land and give it to the non-profit) plus we are going to build the single bedroom 16’x24’tiny home with a private chapel in the basement and two religious meditation shacks 8’x16’ all with full bathrooms.  The tiny home and the two shacks will have full bathrooms using compost toilets.  From the town of Lee NH selectmen down to the Stepping Stone Rd neighborhood everyone says they are for it but not in their neighborhood.  Yet the Union Leader does not believe US Military Veterans homeless on the street rate coverage in their newspaper. 

            I have been there and I am some times still there.  Society that tries to make others afraid of me claims that I am mentally unstable, create hate to stop the VRC.  I am one that came back alive and sees just how wrong that was.  The UL caught the true meaning of the mental and physical state most returning veterans are in when we come home from our tour.  Returning US Military Veterans even from today’s wars suffer the same and end up the same homeless on the streets.  Society claims as they do after each war to understand and not let what happen before to these US Military Veterans happen to the ones coming home from today’s war.  Warehousing US Military Veterans in homeless shelters as our government sees as the solution is not the answer.  We all say we want to help but do not let “people like this in our neighborhood” is the common denominator.  To illustrate when I stepped off the plane many years ago the first word from the first round-eyed girl was just after she spit on me “Baby killer” and as ironic as that is just last month a 21 year-old bartender made a comment on a Vietnam news comment on the TV about how those that served in Vietnam were “baby killers”.  I (meaning all of us) are still there for the proud memory of servicing as US Military for the USA we did what was needed to survive to make the USA exist another day.  It is not easy coming home but some of us make out better than others.  Fighting the silence of newspapers like the Union Leader believing not telling our side helps us is wrong.  The existence of the VRC is to help a few of the 600 plus homeless US Military Veterans in New Hampshire alone.  I beg the Union Leader to print this letter and let the people of NH take a chance on a Veteran helping Veterans come home. 

            I ask everyone that reads this letter to write the newspaper and the town of Lee NH and just ask why not in their neighborhood?
