SUBJECT: Veterans of Allied Nations Invited to FTE Veterans Network (AKA: "VET NET")

FROM: Greywolf (Personal and heartfelt)

LINK: VETERANS NETWORK @ FTE

MESSAGE:

We have all served together in common interests, at times side by side in places far away. Our Nations are allied, and thus so are we. Winston Churchill once said of the UK and USA that we were; "Two nations separated by a common language..." Canada and the USA share one of the longest borders in the world, though we are both dwarfed by China.
*Admittedly a troubling notion

Yet as our core values, ideals, and interests are essentially the same - we are all brothers and sisters in arms, aren't we?
Therefore it is only right to extend an invitation to our Canadian counterparts, just as you would be welcome in our NCO and O Clubs

Very Respectfully;

AT1(AW)(INST) Dutch Jacobs USN/RET

THIS IS THE VET NET MISSION STATEMENT!

Veterans Network (VET NET) at FTE
What it is:
The Veterans Network, or "VET NET" at FTE is a Social Group for Veterans here at FTE.
*NOTE that I do not say "OF" FTE, because we were always here, and always will be

A "VETERAN" is a current or prior member of the military services to include Coast Guard and National Guards and for our purposes I would like to expand that to also include Police, Fire, and Rescue personnel. (What you would call "Fire Brigades" and so on...)

We also welcome members of their immediate family.

WHAT IT IS NOT:
VET NET is not a Chapter at FTE although VET NET members are also FTE members, and usually members of one of the Chapters of FTE

The reason for this is that first of all such a Chapter can not exist at FTE, nor is it necessary to create such a thing. The fellowship of veterans is a thing that is inherent by the very nature of our members and transcends everything that we do.

PURPOSE:
The reason for such a group within FTE is because Veterans are different at a fundamental level. We take care of our own, recognise one another no matter where we are, and have a mutual respect for our people that goes right to the core.

In addition - we have resources and options that an average citizen just does not have; tax free shopping, recreational facilities, and other onbase facilities as well as Veterans Administration options being only the tip of the iceberg.

In addition to the knowlege base at FTE, we have many skilled professions available (even free legal advice) that can be called upon at need. We are a group with a wealth of experience like few others - and these abilities we share as needed for those of us who need whatever we can offer in support.

We are the Brother and Sisterhood you joined when you took the oath at the Military Entrance Processing Station.


~And we all retain the core values taught to us, don't we?

~That I believe, very well encapsulates the VET NET MISSION STATEMENT


Best of all is that it really doesn't cost anything. WE ARE ALREADY HERE!

* I also REGRET to note - that our ethics are often higher than those around us, aren't they?


*Some aspects may be different under the laws of various nations
