Any fellow veteran’s out there? I found out some interesting info for those of us who served between 1940 and 2001. Here is a snippet from the Veteran’s Eagle Newsletter—> 

“Social Security Earnings Credit

If you served on active duty any time from 1940 through 2001, you qualify for a higher social security payment because of your military service (the program was done away with in January 2002). Up to $1200 per year of earnings credit will be credited at the time of application – which can make a substantial difference in social security monthly payments upon your retirement. You must bring your DD-214 to the Social Security Office – and you must ask for this benefit to receive it! Visit the Social Security Administration website at for more info.”

I am not one for reading the paper or watching the news, but this newsletter has some really great resources in it for veterans and anyone in general.

In this same newsletter, there is a snippet about Labor Day and how it came to be. Apparently, in the late 1800’s the average American worked 12 hours a day, seven days a week just to make a living. Heck, now we take what we can get! Out here in the mountains, work is taken in during the summer. Once winter hits, people go without work for days, weeks and sometimes the entire winter! 12 hour days are not unheard of and still exist where there are farmers, construction workers and people in the tourism industry. Have a great holiday and relax=)

Have a sci-fi day everyone! TLH
