Posted December 14, 2012 by Capt. DAVID BREUER

Fly Over: The Great Gatsby’, and ‘Iron Man 3′

Posted May 10, 2013 by Macario Mora and Staff Sgt. Nestor Cruz

In theaters: ‘The Great Gatsby’ Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F.

As our nation prepares to celebrate its 94th Armistice or Veterans Day, it is surprising to find out that there is no standardized legal definition of a military veteran. Generally, each time Congress passed a new law authorizing and creating a new veteran benefit, they included eligibility requirements, for example the Post-9/11 G.I. educational benefits….
