At the Military Guide, we’ve got your six.
It’s our mission to create informative and reliable resources for Veterans, Active Duty Service Members, Reservists, and anyone considering joining the Armed Forces.
Charlie Mike means to continue the mission. Usually said after an interruption in whatever you're doing. This phrase is derived using the (Military Alphabet). By not saying Continue Mission, the term Charlie Mike is said so everyone over the radio can understand and know what you mean. By using the first letter of each word and converting that to the Military Alphabet you get the phrase, Charlie Mike.

Giving America's Heroes the Support They Deserve
Returning to civilian life after a successful career in the military is not always the smooth transition veterans imagine it will be. Veterans return to their hometowns only to find that their jobs are no longer waiting for them, or their service-related injuries or trauma make it impossible to hold a steady job. This can create a spiral of problems, making it challenging to thrive. Through no fault of their own, many veterans find themselves without a place to live, even after dedicating part of their lives to serve their country.
Community Support for Veterans
The Real Warriors Campaign is a multimedia public awareness campaign through the Psychological Health Center of Excellence (PHCoE) to support the promotion of psychological health, reduce stigma of psychological health concerns and encourage help seeking behavior for service members, veterans and their families.
Veterans are those in the community who deserve the most honor and respect.
They have spent much of their lives protecting and serving the country and should be honored as a result.
Unfortunately, in the United States there appears to be a disconnection between what veterans deserve to receive, and what civilian life is really like for them.
Many struggle financially because they lack the services they need when difficult times strike.
In fact, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, 24.8 out of every 10,000 veterans in the United States are homeless. Many more are struggling, though they have not yet become homeless.
While these numbers are slowly improving, chronic homelessness remains a problem for a significant number of veterans.
Addiction can strike anyone, and when it does, you feel every part of your life is spinning out of control. Your friends won’t call you, your finances are a mess, and your job feels like a nightmare. When all that matters is your next high, you’ve stopped living. Where can you turn to for help?

Our mission is to offer our local World War II and Korean War veterans a memorable, safe and rewarding tour of honor to our nation's capitol.
It's a whirlwind tour. This trip happens all in one day and is completely free of charge to the vet! It's our small way to say 'thank you' for their service and sacrifices to this great country.
We are also dedicated to making this trip as safe as possible.
Trained volunteer 'guardians' are assigned to accompany every veteran.
For added safety, we travel with volunteer medical professionals.
The Center for Suicide Awareness
The Center offers support groups for all ages of those who have lost a loved one to suicide, those who have attempted suicide, and for family members. We offer presentations for schools in helping students cope and know warning signs of suicide. We also offer training for educators, healthcare professionals, police, and others.
The FVVC is composed of area veteran service organizations and associate members who provide emergency funding for basic needs to area veterans, those still serving, their dependents, and survivors.
A primary goal of the FVVC is to sustain a Veterans Emergency Fund that serves veterans who are in need of emergency financial assistance in Outagamie, Northern Winnebago, and Calumet counties.
Applicants must provide a copy of a DD Form 214 showing honorable service and copies of bills for consideration. Assistance is paid directly to creditors.
100% of donations to the Veterans Emergency Fund go directly to our local veterans.
The FVVC works with the County Veterans Service Offices to determine eligibility of applicants for financial assistance
How to Stop Living Out of Your Car
The general consensus among aid workers over the past ten years supports the idea that there a substantial, growing number of American people living out of their cars.
TIME talks about living in your car as a “last rung of dignity and sanity above the despair of the streets.”
Today's veteran faces many challenges when returning home from war and working to integrate back into normal society.
In addition to the regular challenges of getting back to civilian work, today's vet faces a society that may not understand what happened on the battlefield or why it happened.
The atrocities of modern war times are difficult for the modern individual to understand. This can leave a veteran feeling alone and disconnected.
From Construction Sites to Constructed Housing:
With projects commonly spanning multiple years, generally offering quiet at night, and typically containing portable restrooms and even sometimes electrical outlets, it’s no secret that unsheltered homeless people often spend the night on construction sites, hiding out underneath scaffolding or big equipment.
However, this is a dangerous practice – and it’s on the rise.

Why did you join the military?
Chances are the answer to that is quite complex.
It likely includes a measure of having a desire to serve our country combined with the potential financial benefits of a military career.
Succeeding in the military can be a very financially rewarding career path, and also brings the satisfaction of knowing that you have done your part to serve your country.
As a military service member, there are numerous benefits beyond your paycheck that you can also enjoy.
Veterans have played important roles in the history of this country.
Even with their patriotic and courageous service, there seems to be an information gap about the support and resources that are available to them when they’re attempting to purchase their own home.

The Paralyzed Veterans of America
(Paralyzed Veterans), a congressionally chartered Veteran service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members
– Veterans of the Armed Forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction, (disease, MS, ALS).
As technology advances and our military becomes more intelligent, the face of war has changed in our world. Yet the toll that combat can take on those serving in our military is still a growing problem.
Many of our nation’s bravest have come home from foreign lands where they were dealing with unknown dangers and putting their life on the line on a daily basis. Some of the memories they bring home with them are horrific in nature and can cause many issues if left untreated.
Among the most prevalent of these concerns are physical pain from injuries and mental illnesses such as PTSD. Over time, many of these brave men and women who fought for our freedom find themselves fighting for freedom from alcohol and substance abuse.
If you or a loved one are a veteran who has returned home only to find yourself fighting this new battle against substance abuse, you are not alone. There is help available to you right now.
Everyone knows about the importance of sleep and its role in our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, though, getting the sleep we need is not always an easy task, and it can be an especially vexing problem for our veterans.
"Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, 'Behold, we did not know this,' does not he who weights the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?." - PROVERBS 24:11-12, ESV
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." - JAMES 1:22, NKJV
