The folllowing site is who we are.  Not the negative items in which most see and hear in the popular media.  We go on and invest ourselves in developing families who in most cases stands up for the betterment of our society.  The photos below were taken from the internet, and they represent those who are in a ministry, academics, and social leadership.  It is the positive agenda of our service in which we are more fully aware than most what is civic pride and the real costs of keeping a democracy safe.  Do not forget any of this America!




Proud to Serve.

The positive agenda.

This is an initiative of Mr. Roger M. Christian, VVA 377th, Dryden, and Ithaca, New York / email .


" Our mutual consciousness of giving is the act of maturity and of social courage.  In the course and records of the collected memories of those of us who have given in military service to our country and peoples - the act of being proud by our service to our country ( this may also include VISTA and The Peace Corps ) and to have done so with honor and integrity is also an act of that one stran of humility we need now to public'ly demonstrate!  When one who has served at risk of ones own life and do so willingly demonstrates the proof of what a democracy is and the humble character for which ' our ' courage is derived.  Stand up and being proud not only allows rapid integration to those who are in uniform back into American mainstream society, but signals to the world the single evidence of their own human potentials by which they can establish and also, be likewise liberated to become a democracy.  It further establishes us as community and world leaders for peace at the sametime.  And thus we embrace the exportation, and by this single personal example alone, our own authentic national character established by our own revolution of 1776. "

What this means is that we all have to think in positive terms with regards to those of us who have served. Right now this veteran group, very much the Vietnam service - personel are being likewise depicted on the internet in very negative and harsh terms.  Thus we, those who have served must convey the message " that we are proud to serve our country."



On this home page, I'll introduce the veterans' focus, and relative ethos and our life styles and talk about the central reasons for such a web site. I might put a picture service personel on this page...or just a picture that may also represent a .....
Peace Corps Volunteer ( who in the wake of the terrorist dangers are likewise in Harm's Way). While I was helping Congressman Claude Pepper on the Bill to create a full Executive Branch of Youth Affairs, during the late 60s and early 70s, there was talk of Universal Service.  Thus the item of The Peace Corps enters the picture, in as much as during the years of the Draft - Selective Service, this organization did not suffer in obtaining dedicated Americans, as it does now. The central reason why? They are likewise terrorists tragets.

What's New?

The social and cultural activities are in two sections:
Baghdad Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC is one the club's focus [ by sponsoring Cafe' Baghdad ].  It is from this high profile initiative in which local returning veterans, service men and women dependents, and supporters will have to opportunity to organize a social and cultural programs, as well as seminars on Networking, Physical Fitness, Job Opportunities, Business Developments, and Special Focus on the Family.

Economic and Futures Development:
Something new.   Developing a veterans' credit union, and how to build one and what havng one can be of extreme value for those who are veterans.  Moreover, and with 43,800 residence of Tompkins county being veteran related [ someone in the immediate family is a veteran ], this is almost a must.  Especially when you consider this population segment in the largest permenant voting block [ est. yr. 2000 @ 68% ] in all of Central, New York.  This is real potential economic power by a group of individuals who are not lax when it comes to hard work or sacrafice-real people.
