Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
One of the new trademarked slogans of the Wounded Warrior Project is Believe in Heroes™. We borrowed this short write-up from the Wounded Warrior website. Please read, and if you can, Donate to the Wounded Warriors to our American Heroes. AutoGov - through the Tough Mudder and Wounded Warrior Project and Under Armour - will always support our heroes!
At 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918, "the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month," a cease-fire came into effect that would end World War I. For this reason, the date is generally regarded as the end of "the war to end all wars." Eighty-three years later, on September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked and crashed four commercial airliners, killing thousands of Americans. The events of that day would inspire droves of brave men and women to answer the call to duty to enlist in our country's all-volunteer armed services.
All veterans face challenges as they return to society, and today's wounded warriors are meeting extraordinary obstacles. These include visible, physical injuries as well as invisible ones, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our challenge goes beyond just raising awareness for veterans, but by addressing the real hurdles our warriors face as they return to civilian life.
Believe in Heroes™ is a Wounded Warrior Project™ initiative that calls on Americans to recognize the enormous sacrifices made by our newest generation of veterans and to honor the service of these individual over a two-month campaign leading up to Veterans Day. The Believe in Heroes campaign will provide the American public with an opportunity to show their support and appreciation of our veterans in their communities, and across the nation.
Trace Adkins believes in heroes and has supported the Wounded Warrior Project with his song, "Till the Last Shot's Fired. Sung with the West Point Glee Club and brought to life here with this amazing photography.

Medicaid and Medicare are a maze of rules and regulations. For ordinary citizens, Medicaid can seem like a chemistry experiment that only an expert can do.
I have noticed that the term “spend down” when talking about Medicaid long term care can cause a lot of confusion for people. The explanation is full of jargon and confusing rules.
Today though, I came across this article that explains what a “spend down” means, and provides a detailed account of how it works.
“Contrary to standard procedure when investing for retirement, where you are looking to maximize your assets, under the spend-down, the government, before it will pay, is looking not to how you have maximized your assets but to how much is left.” Excerpt from “Column: Making sense of the Medicaid spend-down”
Getting educated and prepared for the adventure of applying for Medicaid is the hardest part. There are a plethora of stories, articles, and/or blogs that you can find to help break down the government “lingo” and can steer you on the right path with less frustration and confusion. Here’s one we recommend:
