“The new Corrosion Prevention and Control Planning standard will allow the DoD to facilitate the inclusion of corrosion-planning requirements in new contracts as it designs, acquires, and sustains new weapon systems and facilities,” Daniel Dunmire, director of DoD’s corrosion policy and oversight office, said in a statement released Wednesday.

​In light of the current political climate, it is practically impossible to log onto Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any other social media platform and not see someone expressing their political opinion. It is everywhere and the more you read the more you are tempted to engage, whether by posting your own comment, liking someone’s comment, sharing someone’s post, tweeting or retweeting.

Many Americans were surprised that, in his first week in office, President Trump has done exactly what he said he would do, from negotiating a wall on the Mexican border to implementing a controversial immigration ban. However, with the nomination hearing for his Veterans Affairs secretary, Obama-appointee David Shulkin, set for this Wednesday, it remains to be seen whether Trump will deliver the same explicit execution of his campaign’s veterans affairs reform platform.

​A new administration is coming to town. This transition will be somewhat unusual, in that none of the typical political pundits, lobbyists, appointees, trade groups, think tanks, etc. have any idea what to expect. The people have elected a president who is totally outside the known Washington political pool, and with unknown intent. Thus, many traditional experts are scurrying to maintain relevancy by guessing what may happen.

The Office of Personnel Management released an addendum to its existing telework guidance focused on employees with caregiving responsibilities.  

Recognizing the need for flexibility to maintain a healthy work-life balance and improve the morale of the federal workforce, OPM issued policy clarifications in December to assist employees with minor children and/or adult dependents in fulfilling both personal responsibilities and agency mission requirements.

​The year 2016 again saw large data breaches of both Federal and private companies, from the IRS to telcos and internet service providers. Couple that with hacks of emails during the 2016 Presidential Election, and the year ended with a lot of attention on data security. Cybersecurity, or the federal government’s lack of it, has become more prominent due to ongoing attacks targeting Federal entities.

President-elect Donald Trump is evaluating a radical overhaul of veterans health care options even before he finalizes his pick for the next secretary of veterans affairs.

In comments to reporters late Wednesday, a transition official said Trump is considering a “public-private option” that would allow some veterans to get all of their medical care from private-sector physicians, with the government paying the bill.

Throughout this Administration, we’ve introduced new and innovative ways to make it easier for Americans to engage with their government. There’s the FEMA app that lets users better access safety tips, weather alerts, and reminders of important actions to take to prepare before a disaster. For the first time ever, citizens can send a note to President Obama simply by messaging the White House on Facebook. And just recently, we launched the 1600 app to offer a new way for Americans to experience 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the first-ever mobile application for RegInfo – RegInfo Mobile.

As part of its latest efforts to prevent cybercrime, the IRS said it will begin sending letters to currently registered e-Services users asking them to re-register within 30 days of the date of the letter or risk being shut out of the system. The letters were sent beginning Nov. 28 and will continue to be mailed through the end of December to e-Services users who can access the transcript delivery service and who have been active on their e-Services account within the past year. The IRS announced the re-registration program in September.

It’s that time again, where you will have the opportunity to view a wonderful theatrical production and support programming for our youth.

Our Heroes is a non-profit organization of Horse Play Farms in Bolivia, North Carolina. Our Heroes provides therapeutic riding, large animal rescue and access to equine activities for veterans and children living with special needs. Our Heroes is serving a growing population of veterans and people with at-risk and disadvantaged children. This Satureday, the farm will be receiving a horse named "Cowboy" that has been donated to Our Heroes.

Cowboy is being donated by the mothe...r of the young man who owned Cowboy. Her son was a young Marine--victim of several deployments and 2 IED explosions--after he was medically retired, he waited for almost 9 months for a VA surgical treatment. Finally succumbing to the PTSD and chronic pain, he hung himself in the local park where he took his young daughter every day. He leaves this young daughter and a wife, a younger sister, and his mother. He was only 22 years old.

Boulder Crest Retreat is built on the belief that combat veterans can and must be as productive at home as they were on the battlefield. 

We know, from first hand experience, that coming home from war can be challenging and without training in how to apply military skills to the civilian world, one can feel lost, alone, and different. Much of the focus in the media about these challenges relates to PTSD, and what is wrong with combat veterans.

​People respond to traumatic events in a number of ways. They may feel concern, anger, fear, or helplessness. These are all typical responses to a traumatic event.

Research shows that people who have been through trauma, loss, or hardship in the past may be even more likely than others to be affected by new, potentially traumatic events.
