I wouldn't do a formal resume or cover letter. I would write a letter give them all the facts and explain your situation. They probably see formal resumes all day long. Do something a little different and they may take the time to read it.
to get veteran medical benefits, such as treatment for high blood pressure, diabetes,etc can you only get the VA benefits if the illness was caused while on active duty or can you apply for benefits as long as you are a veteran?
in other words if i have a illness now 40 years after i was in the service that has nothing to do with when i was in the service am i still eligible for treatment under the VA benefits just because i was in the military years ago?
Search on your state for Veterans benefits. Some offer things like free drivers license.
My worst flying experience was landing at Hartsfield Airport in Atlanta. And I was the pilot! A private pilot in a Cessna 182, but still the pilot. I intended to land at Fulton County, but the weather was below minimums so I had to go to Hartsfield, one of the busiest airports in the country. Two stacks of planes in the air, flying in circles separated by 1,000 ft. altitude. I needed fuel, and I was wasting a lot of it flying in circles. When they finally cleared me to land, I was 1,000 feet above the end of the runway and way too fast to land. When I touched down about 2/3 of the way down the runway, ground control told me to turn left immediately. There was a 707 on the runway right behind me and he was going a lot faster than me. I turned, and I swear the wing tip of the 707 went over me. He was that close. When I calmed down, I taxied over to the fuel depot, and got in line to take off again. More excitement, but not nearly as bad as the landing.
I know nothing about flying and landing real airplanes, but if I had been directed to land a small plane at Hartford, I would have found somewhere else, somehow. That would definitely fit into the nightmare experience.
the bottom line for young folks from now on out is: Save and invest in at least an inflation-adjusted way as much as you can as fast as you can if you want to stand any chance of retiring early enough to have some health left. What this means is, for most (non-rich) young folks, live below your means before retirement so you can live above your means after retirement.
The above is what I did all my life. I don't think any of the young folks do that anymore. They would have to give up too much, like cell phones, tablets, computers , cable tv, internet, cars, cars with ac and heaters, fancy clothes, eating out , etc.
I've been twice. If you are very lucky, you may find something. If you go, intending to mine ore for diamonds, you need water to wash the ore and it must be carried in. Folks do it and we saw miners that apparently mined everyday in pits several feet deep. This was many years ago.
In 1957, I flew from Oakland to Korea. 13 hours to Hawaii, layover one hour, 13 hours to Wake Island, layover about an hour. 13 hours to Japan. Lay over two weeks, then on to Korea. I thought that was the worst flight I would ever have, till last year. I flew non stop, Atlanta to Hawaii, 9 1/2 hours, sitting beside a screaming 13 month baby. It never stopped. Worst flight ever.
I just read your blog on the incident. In your blog you say they drove him to the next exit and then started to pull him off into the woods. You also explain how you tried to call 911 and how you couldn't get through in this emergency. What exactly was the emergency? The dog was dead and rotting. They didn't want it in their truck and they dragged it off into the woods. There are a lot of carnivorous critters in the woods in South Carolina so maybe that's just the way they get rid of deceased animals there. Just because you don't like it doesn't make it wrong and clearly doesn't make it an emergency worthy of a call to 911.
I agree. The subject of this thread is hilarious.
When I was young, a dog crawled up under our house and died. We smelled it after a week or so and I was the designated dead dog remover. I crawled on my knees to the far back corner where the body was. I grabbed it by the tail to drag it out and made it about 10 feet, when the tail peeled off. It was a fair sized dog and I ended up getting a rope around it to remove it.
Its a possibility those workers had some experience disposing of dead dogs, deer, etc. Now that I have experience, I would do exactly what they did.
For y'all non-Southerners who make fun of grits, I have but one word... "Farina" (AKA Cream of Wheat). Now _that_ is the most tasteless, re-qusting 'food' I have ever et.
