    Maybe they should open up a marijuana depository with a drive up liquor store and an escort service! That would cover most of the bases.

AAFES to Open Online Shopping to Veterans
From an Army and Air Force Exchange Service News Release

DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2017 — With less than a month until the much-anticipated official launch of the veterans online shopping benefit, more than 225,000 honorably discharged veterans have already been verified to shop at online military exchange websites when the sites open to veterans Nov. 11.

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service online shopping benefit is the first military exchange benefits expansion in nearly 30 years. Beginning on Veterans Day, America’s 18.5 million veterans will be able to shop online at the military exchange websites: ShopMyExchange.com, shopcgx.com, mymcx.com, and mynavyexchange.com.

Shopping the military exchanges online provides veterans an opportunity to reconnect with their military community, allowing these soldiers, airmen, sailors, Marines and Coast Guard “members for life” to save money with tax-free shopping and military exclusive pricing while also supporting critical military quality-of-life programs.

Full notice of this new veterans benefit is here: https://www.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/1049558/

Greetings My Neighbors,

Saturday, November 11 is Veterans' Day. On this very special US holiday, we celebrate all of our living veterans who have served or are serving in any branch of the military, active, reserve or National Guard, peacetime or wartime. We also take time to remember our POWs and MIAs in active hope of their imminent return to their loved ones and our nation's soil.

Everybody can take part in Veterans' Day activities. Here's how in four steps....

1) Thank a veteran. If you do not know a veteran, head out to one of the many Veterans' Day ceremonies as you will surely be able to thank a veteran there.

2) Support a veteran. You can make a monetary donation to a wide variety of veterans' organizations. A good local organization right here in the Northwest Area is Chicago Veterans. chicagovets.org. You can also Google for other agencies to support.

3) Remember a veteran. Because Veterans' Day is about those veterans still living, we read the names of our POWs and MIAs. You can do that by going to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency here: dpaa.mil. Once there, select "Our Missing" and choose the list by war/conflict and then the state. You can also search the list by name as well as select names by branch of service. Take a few minutes to read the names.

4) Join with veterans. There are numerous Veterans' Day ceremonies going on. Give it a search for one near you. All are welcome to attend the annual Edgebrook Community Association Veterans' Day Flag Ceremony on Saturday, November 11 at 4 PM at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. For the first time, we'll be raising the POW/MIA flag over Edgebrook. Check social media and the ECA website for more information as it comes out.

That's it. I hope you are able to join in Veterans' Day 2017. Questions? Please ask...Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com.

    Or maybe standing in front of them so they'll feel protected after all do you expect them to go after gang bangers with only their guns, mace, tasers, and bulletproof vests?
    They are too lazy or stupid to fill out incident reports, so they just let the gangs do what they please!

  • @Brushman: well, Brushman does make a point although I'd word it differently. I'd say, "In todays political climate any Police Officer who does one bit more than eat his doughnut and collect his paycheck is too stupid to be a Policeman."

Last January, I responded to a request from the Alderman's office for volunteers to work on this year's capital improvement plan. This process is called Participatory Budgeting (PB). In my first meeting, some 20+ residents attended. Following orientation, we were charged with reaching out to the community for input on the capital needs of the Ward.

The PB volunteers organized the input into categories. Once organized, the community input tended to fall into four categories. To fully consider each category, the PB volunteers divided into 4 committees, one for each category. The task was to study each recommendation and vet them for appropriateness given City capital improvement guidelines and the cost of each recommendation. Determining cost was fairly easy as the City's capital funds can only be committed to approved vendors by the City and at the City agreed upon cost.

I served on the Beautification Committee. Our Committee had 37 recommended items to consider. By the September 15th deadline, we narrowed the list to a final four recommendations. I am rather pleased with the work our small Committee did. The final four recommendations were ours and ours alone.

As volunteers, if residents don't vote, our work was in vain. Thus, I encourage you to vote. The first vote you will cast is one determining the percent of the one million capital dollars to be spent on Streets. If you do not like any of the PB's sixteen recommendations you are free to vote for 100% of the budget to be devoted to Streets. Similarly, you are then asked to vote for up to six improvement projects. If you can't support more than a few of the projects, vote for a higher percent to be allocated to Streets and Alleys.

Independent of your political preferences, consider volunteering for next year's PB process. I enjoyed meeting with fellow Ward residents and found the experience illuminating in terms of community needs and how the City works.

We used to live in a neighborhood that had scrap metal people come by. No longer. Our gas/charcoal grill rusted and we replaced it. No idea how to get rid of the old one. Any ideas? Neither of us have the capacity to move it further than our backyard alley access.
