There are a number of considerations to take into account regarding military personnel's taxes and most of them result in a bigger, and well deserved, tax refund; however, some are complicated and take some strategizing to use to your advantage.
Everything changed after my injury. My military career was essentially over; my professional path irrevocably changed. Even my personal life changed forever, as I had to adapt to my new normal, including significant disabilities.
Trump is not intellectually or ideologically suited to lead the United States military. A responsible Commander In Chief does not tell the world he will authorize torture and target terrorist families; even if he is considering it, which is Trump's most fundamental flaw -- his mouth. Words do have consequences.
This week the United States European Command and Israel held joint exercises. A big part of the mission was to test the reliably of Israel's three ti...
The U.S. is once again in the midst of an inward turn. Unlike the disconnection following the First World War, America's growing national deficit in the capacity and will to engage other people not like them is not the innocent confidence of a rising power but the false bravado leading one to its fall.
The best part? This is already a program authorized under a statute by Congress. Expanding this program doesn't require an executive order.The president can just do it.
In an election year that finds both the left and right clamoring for political change, then, it seems suicidal for the Democrats to be putting forward a candidate who is as much a creature of the establishment as Hillary Rodham Clinton is.

Sometimes you wake up, sometimes you don't. It can take several seconds to regain full function. If the aircraft is not far enough away from the ground when the lone pilot comes around, all his worries are over. It's likely the same outcome if you start napping in the middle of a fight.
Soon after I began reporting on the military, I uncovered something quite disturbing: that thousands of our wounded soldiers are being discharged from the military not for their injuries but for "personality disorder."
It's time to break down the myth that service members who get out of the military will find employment right away. That's simply not realistic -- and those who have been laid off, out of work or watching a recent college graduate look for a job will recognize this.
