GOD WE TRUST
A reassuring message for those who serve our country! "Those
who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow
of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my
fortress, my God, in whom I trust.' He will cover our troops with
his feathers, and under his wings they will find refuge; his faithfulness
will be their shield and rampart. . . . For he will command his
angels concerning them to guard them in all their ways. 'Because
he loves them,' says the Lord, 'I will rescue them; I will protect
them, for they acknowledges my name. They will call upon me, and
I will answer.'

Veterans' Administration offers a Special Pension with Aid and Attendance
(A&A) benefit that is largely unknown. This Special Pension
allows for Veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular
attendance of another person to assist in eating, bathing, dressing,
undressing or taking care of the needs of nature to receive additional
monetary benefits. It also includes individuals who are blind or
a patient in a nursing home because of mental or physical incapacity.
Assisted care in an assisted living facility also qualifies. This
most important benefit is overlooked by many families with Veterans
or surviving spouses who need additional money to help care for
ailing parents or loved ones.

injuries for compensation. Most Veterans who are in need of assistance

in the home, nursing home or assisted living facility. A Veteran
is eligible for up to $1,519 per month, while a surviving spouse
is eligible for up to $976 per month. A couple is eligible for up
to $1,801 per month. Figures are from the Veteran's Administration

any of these links have been compromised by those who are evil and
sorry enough to try and make a profit off our troops serving in
combat. We found a link recently that had been redirected to an
adult web site, so there are those who are sorry and could care
less about our troops or their families. These people are just out
to make a profit no matter who it hurts, or disrespects, it is just
the world we live in today. Please let us know if you find a link

4 - "The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides
me in paths of righteousness for His names sake. Even though
I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil, for He is with me; His rod and His staff, they comfort me.
