Personal Note by Ski

ATTN: Florida Veterans, You can now get a "VETERANS LICENSE PLATE" for being HONORABLY DISCHARGED. This could not be done before - it was not available. President George Bush Senior after Desert Storm wanted all states to provide this type Plate. He said "this is to Honor Our Veterans" And change how Veterans were treated during and after the Viet Nam War. Florida for some reason never did this... 

When I (Ski) moved from Pa where I had my Veterans Plate. When I tried to get a Florida Vet Plate they had none. Not the one where you must show your DD214...  It took over a year of phone calls, emails and when I met Gov. Rick Scott at the Veterans Service Awards I brought to his attention what I was trying to do Gov. Scott listened and assigned an aid to check into it. I thought is was the ole O-ki-dok. However, When what I was saying was found correct Gov. Scott immediately put it in motion. For my persistence and for all Florida Veterans Honorably Discharged I was given the #1 Plate --001--! I still had to pay for it though... Now any Veteran Past Present and Future Can get this State Honor and display it as your License Plate!

So all you need do is take your DD214 to a Tax office and ask for the Veterans Plate.YOU WILL GET ONE!


"Veteran's - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, signed a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is Honor, and their are far too many people who no longer understand that.

How Does Mental Health Affect Your Sleep? 


The term mental health describes emotional, cognitive, and social well-being. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Mental health affects not just how we feel, but how we think and behave. Our psychological condition determines how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Tips and Tricks to Safely Buy a Car as a Military Family or Individual.

Being in the military often comes with a lot of change: new cities, new homes, new friends, and new cars. Military personnel are frequently the targets of fraudulent car dealers and are often taken advantage of. Because of past occurrences, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) created the Office of Servicemember Affairs (OSA). The OSA “works to help military families overcome unique financial challenges by providing educational resources, monitoring complaints, and working with other agencies to solve problems faced by service members.” The CFPB has done work to strengthen the Military Lending Act and it monitors service member complaints. Additionally, the website provides a number of resources for military personnel, such as how to navigate a financial life-cycle in the military and how to manage money in general.

Submitted by: Carmen Adams. Carmen is a masters student at SDSU. Carmen Lives in San Diego and has been around many veterans and active duty military members. She has found that many of these individuals have been getting taken advantage of.

Carmen wanted to do her part! She decided to take things into her own hands. The problem she is talking about is predatory car sales to military members. She felt that nowhere covered the issue extensively, The LINK: Article on predatory car sales is the final outcome! Well worth the read for Military members who this has happened too or to watch out FOR!...
