VETERAN’S DAY HISTORY
Veterans Day is a yearly holiday observed in the United States on November 11th. This day is dedicated to honoring and showing appreciation for the brave individuals who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. It is an opportunity to express gratitude for their sacrifices, valor, and unwavering dedication to protecting their country. Many communities organize parades, ceremonies, and special events to commemorate Veterans Day. It is a time to reflect on the contributions made by veterans and to recognize the importance of their service to the nation. More importantly, the U.S. Marine Corps is celebrating its 248th birthday on Nov. 10, marking the anniversary of the founding of a military branch older than the United States itself.
Then why is 1 ex-coach deliberately withholding promotions because women want the right, should have the right, and deserve the right to make decisions about their own bodies?
Travel pay for military personnel is an important aspect of their compensation package. When service members are required to travel for official duty, they are eligible to receive travel allowances to cover their transportation, lodging, meals, and other incidentals. This is to ensure that they can fulfill their duties without incurring financial hardship.
There are various types of travel pay within the military, including Temporary Duty (TDY) travel, Permanent Change of Station (PCS) travel, and Deployments. Each has its own set of rules and regulations governing reimbursement.
As a Marine, I received travel pay whenever I was required to travel to and from duty stations. Present day I still receive travel pay when I use my own vehicle for medical appointments and/or I can opt to have a vehicle take me to and from appointments (based on my physical hardships incurred during active service) – for which I am grateful to the federal government for extending this service to me.
Medical appointments for military personnel are an essential part of ensuring their well-being and maintaining readiness. The military provides healthcare services to service members through various avenues, including military treatment facilities. When it comes to medical appointments, military personnel have access to a wide range of services. These appointments can be for routine check-ups, preventive care, specialized treatment, or even emergency situations.
It’s important to note that the process of scheduling and attending medical appointments may vary depending on the individual’s military status, location, and healthcare provider. Overall, the military prioritizes the health and well-being of its personnel and provides comprehensive medical care through a variety of channels to ensure they receive the necessary attention and treatment they require.
HIPAA, which stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a U.S. federal law enacted in 1996. Its primary goal is to protect the privacy and security of individuals’ health information. HIPAA provides guidelines and regulations for healthcare providers, health plans, and other entities that handle health information to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of patients’ personal medical data.
Under HIPAA, healthcare providers are required to implement safeguards to protect patients’ health information, such as electronic medical records, from unauthorized access or disclosure. This includes implementing physical, technical, and administrative measures to prevent data breaches and ensure the secure transmission of health information. How would Senator Tommy (Coach) Tuberville (R-AL) know when a female veteran or child of a veteran is or will receive travel pay for an abortion?
Overall, HIPAA is a federal law that safeguards the privacy and security of individuals’ health information, promotes the exchange of health information for continuity of care, and grants individuals certain rights and protections regarding their personal medical data.
PREGNANT AND POLICIES
Pregnancy and maternity policies in the military vary depending on the branch and country. In the United States military, female service members are allowed to serve while pregnant, but there are certain restrictions and guidelines in place to ensure the health and well-being of both the mother and the unborn child.
ABORTIONS, PROMOTIONS, TUBERVILLE
Senator Tuberville, also known as Tommy Tuberville, is a Republican senator from Alabama. He began his political career in 2021 when he was sworn into the United States Senate to represent the state of Alabama. Prior to his political career, Tuberville was a notable college football coach, having coached teams such as the Auburn Tigers and the University of Mississippi Rebels. Did you know being a coach is equal to and in some cases supersedes officers in the military?
As a senator, Tuberville has focused on various policy issues, including national security, immigration, and economic growth. He has expressed support for strong border security, advocating for stricter immigration policies. He has also emphasized the need for fiscal responsibility and reducing government spending to promote economic growth.
Senator Tuberville serves on several committees, including the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. Through these committees, he works on legislation and policies to support small businesses, improve veteran healthcare services, and promote agricultural interests.
US Senate Approves Military Promotions
All three were nominated for promotion months ago, but they were delayed by a “hold” from Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville over government funding to cover travel costs for abortions for service members and their dependents.
Tuberville allowed Mahoney’s nomination to go ahead after General Eric Smith, the Marine Corps commandant, had an apparent heart attack. He allowed the other two promotions to proceed after Republican senators circulated a petition that would have forced a vote.
- If 3 promotions were adjudicated why not the other 300?
- Tuberville is well aware that withholding promotions has nothing to do with female veterans receiving travel pay to have abortions performed.
