Proposed Tracking System Sheds Light on Invisible Battle Scars

When soldiers return home with invisible injuries, many may have trouble getting treatment. Proper documentation for mild or traumatic brain injury triggered by combat is difficult under the current system, which sets up a road block for many vets suffering from anxiety, depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Charity Fraud Watch

We have created this document with the public’s awareness and protection as our driving force.  We have learned over the years that the public is taken advantage of by folks who claim to be something that they are not.

Each week’s itinerary differed only slightly - travel Saturday, explore island Sunday, teach Monday through Friday, repeat.

We settled in, laid out lesson plans, contacted locals, met our new, (and always exciting!) class, and set off making the most of each island.
