When it comes to the treatment of veteran students here at Point Park University, they are treated with respect. In some cases, veterans have postponed their education to join the military, resulting in some being undergraduates at Point Park. Veterans here tend to be in their late 20 's or early 30 's. The age difference between them and the typical ages of 18-21-year-old students can be overwhelming. It 's a learning experience for a few veterans, but with the help of Point Park veterans have their admission fee waived and get early registration.
I believe that those who have served our country in the past deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and appreciation. It outrages me when people talk badly about our veterans and attempt to take from them. I have challenged these people by donating to organizations like the Wounded Warrior project and by showing those around me that they can help those who have fought for our freedom. By doing so, I hope to get more people to spread the word on the poor treatment of the most important people in this nation and hopefully, the way they are treated will change for the better in the near future.
Veterans are some of the bravest men and women that you will ever know. They fought for our country in our most desperate hours and risked their lives so we could have the chance to live ours. It is such a shame that they are ignored and even homeless in today 's society. I had wondered how we could get veterans of the street and back into the job world. After research I found that there are programs and methods put in place specifically to help these struggling veterans.
A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know.
I’m have the privilege to work with and serve the veteran population in the settings of outpatient, inpatient, surgery, home- based primary care and also community living. The psychosocial challenges to occupational engagement of the veterans are unique in this population. One of the many psychosocial challenges affecting veterans on each ward is the fear of failure and disappointment. Those veterans who acquire a debilitating dysfunction are very vulnerable to feelings of disappointment and failure if they do not “get better” in the time frame they expected to. In response to that emotion, many veterans take initiative to improve their function.
Veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) have high rates of unemployment and mental health disorders. In addition, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common injury among OIF/OEF veterans, often leading to cognitive impairments and post-concussive symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and difficulties with cognitive and functioning. TBI and comorbid psychiatric conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) limit cognitive readiness for civilian employment and may lead to impaired job performance. These conditions all serve as potential barriers for OIF/OEF Veterans entering the workforce.
Aurora, I agree with you. Yes, discrimination still exists in some healthcare facilities. I work in nursing home and there are some healthcare workers from other countries and they are discriminated by their colleagues. Even some residents are very racist, We had very nice African American nursing assistant and some of the residents always used to refuse to have her as a CNA. One of the residents accused her stealing her stuff, which was not
Stanley, I would have to half agree with your comment. Yes, inmates should be allow to have personal property. I disagree with discrimination against certain inmates for possessing personal property. There should not be discrimination on personal property items because I believe standardized items that inmates may possess regardless of the crimes they committed. If there are discrimination of personal property items, inmates will start to filed suits with the court.
This remark made by the Father of the Nation rightly points out at the concept and need of Equality in the society, equality being the fundamental human right of any human being, which can be at-tained only by removing all caste and class based discriminations in a Country like India wherein certain classes of citizens have been subjected to social, economic and cultural disabilities since time immemorial, owing to the peculiar traditional, historical and social norms prevalents in the society. The Caste system has existed in India for a long time and was the creation of a social practice that later on became a norm of life, with the continuation of inferiority and superiority by reason of ones colour, religion, place of birth, economic
In Australia discrimination is shown to the aboriginal people of the country the most as compared to any other individual in the country. Aboriginal people also known as indigenous people in the country; they are those groups of people who first came to the country centuries ago and they themselves find it difficult to trace their ancestors (International, 2013). They are those most commonly discriminated in the country because of their skin color, race, and they are also discriminated in the terms of the ethnicity as well. Even though Australia is the aboriginal’s native land, yet they are those individuals that are discriminated in the workplace (International, 2013). For instance even when they attend an interview session, the questions
Physical and mental injuries affect a veteran's chance of getting a job drastically. These veterans have serious injuries that they suffered from defending and fighting for our country. Now when they return, they find that their injuries are causing them to be put at a disadvantage in the job market. The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans says that “47,725 veterans are homeless on any given night”. That is around 9% of all homeless people and more than half of that 9% is between 18 and 30(Faq About Homeless Veterans).
