Does anyone else feel this is a issue? I know we've been hit a few times with outrages electric bills even when the house was empty for a month.


Are Military Families Being Scammed by their on-base Energy Company?

Imagine this: you live in military base housing, where your service member's paycheck is supposed to cover rent and “normal utility usage.” Then you receive an electric bill for $400. You have no idea why, so you contact the energy company. They say you must deal with your base housing management office. The Housing office tells you that everything at the house seems normal. So you cut back and conserve energy. The next month, your bill is even higher! You now owe almost $900, or an entire paycheck for many military families. When you complain, the Housing office says you must pay your bill, or be evicted within 3 days.

Sound like a nightmare? Unfortunately, for military families across the country, this is a reality.

Veterans Info Site a Resource for US Military Veterans

I did a "soft launch" of the Veterans Info Site website today. The official launch of the website will be in mid-March.

The VeteransInfoSIte.com is intended to provide a single Resource Center for our US Military Veterans and their family members. Specific and current Information related to Benefits, Housing, Employment and Medical Assistance is provided in an accurate and timely manner.

This project is VERY special to me because I am always seeking ways to help those who serve - and have served - their country. As a veteran abd civilian male military spouse, I see the importance of having timely information regarding Veterans benefits and services.

VeteransInfoSIte.com is one way that I can help Veterans get the info they need.
