Morning previews of the afternoon sessions

20150418_112838we are hearing from Diane Zumatto now who will speak on Empowerment and Toxic Wounds. She is doing a roll call of who served in what Era.  We have two WW2 Vets, 3three Korean War vets and a scattering of Vietnam Vets.  A large number who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and during the cold war.

She’s telling us that in the 70’s 75% of congress were veterans and today it is 19%.  She is urging veterans to run for office. She works for Amvet as a legislative liason. Check out one of her slides above.  Her report from Congress is not good.

We are getting a lesson on how to influence bills in congress.

She has great slides – one last one before lunch:20150418_114506
