U.S.-South Korea Joint Military Drills To Resume

The United States has decided to restart joint military drills with South Korea on the Korean peninsula, a reversal from one of the key assurances given by U.S. President Donald Trump to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a historic summit in return for the communist nation’s denuclearization pledge.

Tia Mowry Returns to the Big Screen as a Military Wife

Tia Mowry-Hardrict just added a new baby girl to her family. But that’s not the only gift she’s given birth to this year. She’s adding a new movie, Indivisible, to her portfolio as well.

In an exclusive interview, Mowry-Hardrict talks about her upcoming role in Indivisible, a true story that sheds light on Iraqi war vet Chaplain Darren Turner as he returns home to struggles that threaten the strength of his family and faith.

“What attracted me to this movie is that it honors military families and their home life,” says  Mowry-Hardrict who was born in Gelnhausen, Germany, and grew up in a military family. Her mother, Darlene, is a retired US military veteran who rose up the ranks to become a Drill Sergeant. Her father Timothy is also a retired U.S. military veteran who trained soldiers for the Gulf War.

“I dealt with everything in the army right in my backyard,” she says.

As a teen actress, Mowry-Hardrict became a role model for girls everywhere as the smart and focused Tia Landry in the sitcom Sister, Sister. Now, she’s taking on the role of Tonya Lewis, a military wife who has to deal with the emotions and challenges war can create in a family. She continues to evolve in her career because of the lessons her parents instilled in her.

“My parents taught me to stay true to who I am. No matter what business you are in, there is pressure to conform. There will be people trying to mold you into something you are not. Your integrity, your character, and your authenticity are most important. I credit myself for that. What you see is what you get.”

Mowry-Hardrict believes that the key to longevity in the entertainment industry and any path you take in life comes down to authenticity. The roles she has played represented characters or situations that she could relate to in real life. For example, she played the role of madly-in-love medical student Melanie Barnett on the TV show The Game. In this show, Melanie marries her long-time boyfriend Derwin Davis.  Mowry-Hardrict had practice walking down the aisle at the time because she experienced her real-life wedding in 2008 to husband Cory Hardrict. “Life imitates art and art imitates life so wherever I am in my life, I gravitate toward that.” Now that Mowry-Hardrict’s family has grown, cooking has become a part of her daily routine, which is seen on “Tia Mowry at Home” Cooking Channel show.

All of Mowry-Hardrict’s experiences have prepared her for the heart-wrenching, powerful story told in Indivisible. She’s excited to return to the big screen in October in a role that allows her to focus on family and marriage, and give thanks to the military.

This Week in Women: Trump’s Military Budget is No Match for Women Peacemakers

This Week in Women is part of a series produced in partnership between Ms. and the Fuller Project for International Reporting. This column is also part of a newsletter; sign up here to receive it regularly.

Copyright Melanie Chapman

Last Friday, Trump approved the largest U.S. military budget in history—authorizing nearly $ 700 billion dollars in 2018, and another $ 716 billion next year. Since the media coverage was muted, here’s a few details about what’s on the Pentagon’s shopping list: missile defense programs ($ 4 billion), an aircraft carrier ($ 4.5 billion) and two nuclear powered attack submarines ($ 5.5 billion).

Russia is also amping things up: This article Wednesday in Defense One reported how Russia will pour money into drones and robotics as well as information warfare. Even attacking “non-military targets” is now fair game, said Russian Army Gen. Valery Gerasimov.

In other frightening signs that we’re marching toward war, Trump appointed John Bolton as his new National Security Adviser—even though he was terribly wrong about the more than trillion-dollar, failed Iraq war. And diplomats are disappearing: 27 countries, as well as NATO, ousted at least 151 Russian diplomats this week over the poisoning scandal in the UK; Russia on Thursday began expelling U.S. diplomats. As we know, Trump has spent the last year gutting the U.S. State Department.

On April 11th at The New York Times building, there will be a day-long seminar encouraging journalists to report on peace and reconciliation as fervently as they report on conflict. I’ll be speaking, along with Sebastian Junger, Lynsey Addario, Zainab Salbi, Fuller Project board member and veteran journalist Laurie Hays and Fuller Project advisor and longtime editor Robert Rosenthal. Click here to attend.

Part of this reporting needs to include those who are resisting war and conflict, upholding civil society and opposing authoritarianism. Yet, as The Fuller Project wrote this week at Ms., women anti-war activists have a long history of being dismissed as less serious, and considered not central to the “real issues” of conflict and war.

Not true. Right now, Russian women are risking their lives in opposition to Putin; Turkish women are opposing Erdogan; and there is an international coalition working for a peaceful reconciliation with North Korea. Meanwhile, there is an active behind-the-scenes movement on Capitol Hill to implement more fully legislation that ensures women always have a voice in reducing conflict.

These stories rarely get told. (Fuller Project correspondent Sophia Jones and photographer Andrea DiCenzo are in Iraq, traveling across the country reporting on how women are faring in post-ISIS times. Watch out for theirs.)

Meanwhile, the exclusive all-women’s club, The Wing, is under investigation over whether its female-only policy violates anti-discrimination laws. And on Twitter, feminist Jessica Valenti has led a very vocal chorus in opposition to the Atlantic magazine’s recent hiring of a right-wing columnist who called for women who’ve had abortions to be hanged.

In other news this week, the national backlog of untested rape kits may be eased soon. Sources told The Fuller Project this week that Massachusetts is about to vote on legislation that would: mandate an annual statewide inventory of rape kits, require the timely testing of newly collected rape kits, require the submission and testing of all backlogged kits; establish a statewide rape kit tracking system and grants victims the right to know the status of their kits. It’d make Massachusetts one of the most advanced states in the country in addressing the backlog of untested rape kits. We’re standing by to report on this big story.

Christina Asquith is the founder and editor in chief at The Fuller Project for International Reporting.

Women in the Military More at Risk for These 3 Health Issues

Today, according to a report in CNN, “more than 200,000 women are in the active-duty military, including 69 generals and admirals.” The “Women Veterans Report” released by the Department of Veterans Affairs in February 2017 indicated that the number of women serving in the…

Women in the Military More at Risk for These 3 Health Issues

Women have served in the military since the American Revolution, but in recent years, more roles have opened up for them. Today, according to a report in CNN, “more than 200,000 women are in the active-duty military, including 69 generals and admirals.”

The “Women Veterans Report” released by the Department of Veterans Affairs in February 2017 indicated that the number of women serving in the military has grown, and that in 2015, they made up 9.4 percent of the total veteran population. By 2043, they’re expected to make up 16.3 percent of all living veterans.

That’s good news for a lot of reasons. In 2010, PBS reported on what women get from the military, and found a lot of positive benefits. These included the following:

  • Education: Women can get their college tuition paid by the military in return for service.
  • Health care: There is consistent debate about the quality of healthcare for veterans, but women in the military don’t have to worry about having health coverage.
  • Personal pride: Many women find fulfilling and exciting careers in the military.

But as any woman in the military will tell you, there are challenges, as well, and many of these can put a woman’s health at risk. Below, we examine three health issues that can be particularly concerning for women in the military.

  1. Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Mention these and most women will shudder. They’re simply not pleasant, as symptoms include pelvic pain, a burning sensation when urinating, and a strong and frequent urge to urinate.

The American Urological Association estimates that a woman’s lifetime risk of getting a UTI range from 40 to more than 50 percent. Depending on the location and severity of the infection, women may also experience upper back and side pain and high fever.

Women are at greater risk for UTIs than men because of their anatomy. Women have a shorter urethra (the tube leading from the bladder out of the body) than men do, which means bacteria have a shorter journey to reach the bladder.

Women who serve in the military may be at an even higher risk than other women. Retired Army Colonel Dr. Elspeth Ritchie spoke at a health summit in Falls Church, Virginia in 2014, where she stated that dirty bathrooms are a cause for female UTIs on deployment. The American College for Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) reported in 2012 that combat locations with limited sanitary equipment leave women at greater risk of UTIs.

According to an Army report released by a task force on women’s health, a 2000 survey of nearly 850 women found that nearly half had experienced symptoms of UTIs or vaginitis (vaginal inflammation) while deployed. Many declined to seek treatment, and UTIs that are allowed to advance can lead to kidney disease and pelvic infections.

In 2013, Lt. Colonel Nancy Steele, Ph.D., a women’s health nurse practitioner, reported that UTI is the most common health risk for deployed military women, and is often the result of holding urine for a long time or reduced hydration.

Women are advised to drink plenty of water, go to the bathroom when needed, and to seek medical attention for UTIs. The Army Women’s Task Force recommends the FUDD (Female Urinary Diversion Device), which allows women to urinate discreetly while in the field. They also suggest that women use self-diagnosis kits to test for UTIs, in the hopes of increasing the number of women who seek medical attention for them.

  1. Physical Assault and Sexual Trauma

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reports that according to one study, 23 percent (over one-fifth) of female users of VA healthcare reported experiencing at least one sexual assault while in the military. According to a 2006 study, as many as a quarter of military women have been sexually assaulted, and 80 percent sexually harassed.

According to a 2006 study, as many as a quarter of military women have been sexually assaulted, and 80 percent sexually harassed.

The researchers add that these attacks in the military setting “may be more damaging than those that occur in other work settings, in part because such events may emphasize women’s ‘outsider status.’” These assaults have long-lasting health effects on women, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depression, alcohol or drug abuse, long-term sexual dysfunction, disrupted social networks, employment difficulties, and increased suicide risk.

Medical conditions associated with sexual assault, according to the research, include breast cancer, obesity, asthma, and heart attacks. Women who are exposed to combat stress as well—with effects on physical and mental health similar to sexual assault—can get a double dose of trauma that can be extremely difficult to deal with.

Researchers report that “combat and military sexual trauma experiences, as well as other deployment-related stresses, could explain deployed female veterans’ greater risk for drug-related disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, accidental deaths, high levels of general psychiatric stress, and more frequent somatic [physical] complaints compared with nondeployed female veterans.”

To make the problem worse, women are unlikely to report the assaults. According to Ritchi, “They’re embarrassed and want to get on with their lives.” She suggested that to prevent these assaults, commanders and leaders should know where their troops are at all times, and should examine patterns of when and where the assaults occur to help modify behavior.

Women are advised to report the assaults, and to seek medical attention for them—not only immediately, but down the road as well, when they return home. VA doctors are also advised to screen for sexual assault in veterans.

The ACOG adds that according to studies, 20 percent of women veterans who use VA facilities report a history of military sexual trauma. “This is a cause for concern because military sexual trauma can have long-term health implications. It is critical that health care providers screen for military sexual trauma so that they may effectively identify and address any associated health concerns.”

  1. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Whether related to sexual trauma, combat stress, or other issues, PTSD affects women in the military differently than it does men, according to the VA. Common symptoms in both genders include sleep problems, flashbacks, fear-based anxiety, and feelings of detachment. But women are “more likely to be jumpy, to have more trouble feeling emotions, and to avoid things that remind them of the trauma than men,” according to the VA.

Whereas men are more likely to have trouble controlling their anger and are likely to lash out, women are more likely to sink into themselves, and to feel depressed and anxious. The VA also reports that women are more than twice as likely to develop PTSD than men, perhaps because of sexual assault, for which they may blame themselves.

Not all women who go through a traumatic event develop PTSD. Women who were injured during the event, who were sexually assaulted, or who did not have good social support, are at an increased risk.

Not all women who go through a traumatic event develop PTSD. Women who were injured during the event, who were sexually assaulted, or who did not have good social support, are at an increased risk.

Researchers have linked PTSD to poorer overall health and increased likelihood for mental health problems and substance abuse. Yet women may feel hesitant to report their symptoms to the VA because of shame and stigma, or because of they don’t trust their healthcare providers to truly help them.

Some organizations are working to make things better by increasing their understanding of a woman’s response to PTSD. In a 2013 VA study, researchers found that women diagnosed with the disorder responded more strongly to visible cues than men when they saw an image and knew it was going to be followed by an electric shock. Researchers said this showed that women were “more strongly conditioned” than men—a finding that may lead to better treatments.

In other words, researchers believe that perhaps if fear conditioning differs between the genders, then methods of extinguishing that fear may differ, too. Typically, patients are gradually exposed to cues that previously meant danger (big crowds, for example), until they realize that there is no reason to be afraid. This is called “extinction learning” and is believed to be important for recovery from PTSD.

“A deeper understanding of this process could alter our strategy for how we treat PTSD in men and women,” said Dr. Sabra Inslicht, staff psychologist at the San Francisco VA Medical Center.

Women Often Misdiagnosed

Women in the military are also at risk for unplanned pregnancies and chronic stress, such as that which may accompany leaving children behind. Though the VA and other organizations are working to make things better, women remain their own best health advocates.

PTSD, for example, is often misdiagnosed in women because of cultural stereotypes or a lack of research on how the symptoms differ. For years, studies on military PTSD were focused on men and combat trauma, so there is less information on how the disorder affects women, or victims of sexual trauma.

You know yourself and your experiences best—don’t be afraid to keep knocking on doors until you get the help you need.

White House Gives Up Trans Military Ban For Now

The Trump administration will no longer try to prevent openly transgender people from joining the military, the Pentagon announced Friday night. The Trump administration previously attempted to delay a Department of Defense policy that would allow openly transgender people to join the military beginning January 1. But two federal courts struck down those efforts efforts. In a statement to Reuters, a DOJ official said that the department would not try to fight the January 1 deadline, but that the Trump administration might still try to block trans troops. “The Department of Defense has announced that it will be releasing an independent study of these issues in the coming weeks,” the official said. “So rather than litigate this interim appeal before that occurs, the administration has decided to wait for DOD’s study and will continue to defend the president’s lawful authority in district court in the meantime.”

13 Black Corporate Board Members Who Served in the Military

Before they were placed into board service to protect assets of shareholders at some of the largest publicly traded corporations on the S&P 500, a phalanx of BLACK ENTERPRISE Registry of Corporate Directors members chose military service to secure our nation. After their tours of duty, many of them applied their leadership and strategic skills to advance in corporate America while some decided to build distinguished careers in the Armed Forces. All, however, were drafted to serve on corporate boards because they consistently exhibited the right stuff when it came to management, decisiveness, and sound judgment.

As you would expect, most of these board members are involved in technology and aerospace and defense—sectors in which equipment and processes, in some cases, have been perfected for military and government use before being modified for consumers. Corporations in other industries have clearly benefitted from leaders who spent years developing detailed plans to ensure successful outcomes and at times have done so with literally lives on the line.

In honor of Veterans Day, we salute Registry members who have proudly represented America in this capacity. Using bio information, we share their military journey. You will be fascinated by this cadre of tops guns, military geniuses, and inspirational heroes—all bound by patriotism, sacrifice, and honor.

Gen. Colin Powell

 

The most prominent among them: Gen. Colin Powell, who rose to become the nation’s first African American Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff—the pinnacle position in the Armed Forces—as well as the first African American to head the diplomatic corps as Secretary of State. The retired four-star Army general “found his calling” while attending the City College of New York, where he studied geology and joined the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). Serving as the commander of his unit, he has often been quoted saying that the opportunity helped provide him with structure and direction. After graduating in 1958, Powell was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. In the 1960s, he served two tours of duty in Vietnam and has been awarded as many 11 military decorations in all.

After receiving an M.B.A. at George Washington University and gaining a White House fellowship in 1972, he would serve four presidents, holding positions in the Defense department and at the Pentagon, involved in the coordination of military campaigns over the course of three decades that included the bombing of Libya and both Iraq Wars.

HGTV’s Latest Flippers Are A Military Couple From Texas

Source: HGTV / HGTV

Andy and Ashley Williams are the latest married flippers to host a spinoff of HGTV’s highly popular home improvement franchise Flip or Flop. The premiere of their new show Flip or Flop Fort Worth offers a healthy helping of #BlackLove and  #RelationshipGoals and gives hard work and entrepreneurial success a Black face.

The military veterans, who left active duty to become real estate investors and buy, rehab and sell properties in need of help all throughout the Texas area. Find out how they got started, what to expect from their show and more! Flip or Flop Fort Worth premiered Thursday, November 2 at 9PM on HGTV.

How did you both transition from being in the military to flipping houses?

Ashley Williams: Before we started dating, Andy had begun investing in rental properties back in the States. Once we got married, it became our hobby that we loved; buying and renovating a few projects a year while continuing to serve overseas. That hobby quickly evolved into a viable business with multiple projects going on. Finally leaving Iraq, real estate was and continues to be our safe haven.

What sets you apart from other house-flippers?

Andy Williams: We believe that each project is an opportunity to add value and create an impact. Our profits are important, but our mission of adding value to the community and bringing our fellow veterans along through the process is our focus. It’s our little way to continue to serve.

 You are the first African-American Flip or Flop hosts. Do you feel any pressure to live up to a certain standard with Black viewers?

Ashley: Being one of the first African-Americans to host is humbling. We are super excited to positively represent our community and HGTV. We can’t wait to follow in the footsteps of positive, wholesome and empowering television!

Source: HGTV / HGTV

How do you find the balance between being married and being business partners?

Andy: Finding the balance is constant compromise as we both are very passionate. We have a rule; turn off during family time and date night. Our kids won’t be young forever, so we don’t [want] to miss any of those fun moments. And date night is our way of keeping our relationship growing in a positive light.

What advice would you give a first-time homeowner who want to embark upon their first flip?  

Andy: Our advice to first-time flippers would be to learn your market and run your numbers. Also, flipping is a team sport; it’s much more fun finding success as a team versus doing everything yourself. So, build a strong team by sourcing experts in the area.

Source: HGTV / HGTV

If you could narrow it down to 5 tips, what are the most important things to know about flipping homes?

  1. Find a discounted property that you can add value to. In flipping, the price you pay for a house will directly dictate the price you sell it for. Never overpay; always buy at a discount.
  2. Flipping houses is a team sport – include your team in the entire process. Great communication is key.
  3. The renovation phase is the most critical aspect. Put your plans on paper and your agreements in writing so you can manage expectations.
  4. Monitor the market, manage the process and, always remember, it’s not your home. It’s an investment property so do not get emotional or you will eat into your earnings.
  5. Assess your financial position at all times.

What can viewers expect on to see on your first season of Flip or Flop Fort Worth?

Ashley: In Flip or Flop Fort Worth season one, viewers will see really cool transformations and creative uses of space as we work as a team to navigate problems and protect our profits.

Trump’s Trans Military Ban Was Just Dealt a Huge Blow

It's been a bad day in Trumpland. It started first thing in the morning, with former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates being indicted for money laundering, among other things. Shortly afterward, we learned that one of Trump's former foreign

This article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: Trump’s Trans Military Ban Was Just Dealt a Huge Blow

Rolling Stone Latest Politics News

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Trump promised to give a grieving military father $25,000

HARI SREENIVASAN: Army Corporal Dillon Baldridge was killed in Afghanistan in June. He and two fellow soldiers were gunned down by an Afghan police officer suspected of an insider attack.

Baldridge’s father was disturbed by the details of his son’s death and expressed that to President Trump in a phone call. Mr. Trump then apparently took an unusual step for a commander in chief: He offered money.

Dan Lamothe helped break that story for The Washington Post, joins me now.

Thanks for joining us.

So, how did this phone call go?

DAN LAMOTHE, The Washington Post: Yes, so several weeks after the soldier’s death, the president made a call to North Carolina, where the father lives. They had a conversation that the father describes mostly as respectful.

The father expressed some frustration with the way that the death gratuity, basically a benefit that the family received, was going to his ex-wife, rather than some part to him. And the president’s response caught him by surprise. He said, well, I’m going to make sure we write you a $ 25,000 check, you know, basically for your troubles.

HARI SREENIVASAN: And did that check ever arrive? The White House said that they sent it late today.

DAN LAMOTHE: Yes, so we reached out this morning and received no response for several hours. As of today, the father had not received a check, so the assumption here would be that the check had not been sent until we reached out to the White House this morning to verify this father’s report.

HARI SREENIVASAN: And you discovered this conversation in — kind of the story has a larger context.

You reached out to several different families, Gold Star families, for what happened after their family member died.

DAN LAMOTHE: Yes.

I mean, we have got this larger conversation this week. It’s a very sensitive, very politically charged conversation. And at the center of it are grieving families. So, we thought it was important to reach out to those grieving families. Some of them, obviously and understandably, did not want to speak to us, but quite a few of them did.

And we found that about half of the ones we reached — we reached 13 different families that had lost loved ones since Trump became president — and half of them had received calls from the president. Half of them had not. The majority of the ones who had not were upset when they heard his comments earlier this week that he had called out — called all of them.

HARI SREENIVASAN: And there was even some families or at least one family that had not received anything, no phone call or even a letter.

DAN LAMOTHE: Right.

And you wonder what’s going on there, because that is something that is typically just generated. There are form letters of sorts that the president then signs. There was a time during the height of the Iraq War when we had hundreds of American casualties per month.

We’re now looking at something on the order of several dozen this year, so it’s a much smaller amount. So for this to slip through the cracks at this point is very much a surprise.

HARI SREENIVASAN: How different is this from — when you say logistically, when you think about the number of casualties that were happening in the middle or the height of the Iraq War or the Afghanistan conflict, how different is this time period than what perhaps President Bush or President Obama was dealing with?

DAN LAMOTHE: It’s an order of magnitude smaller.

At the height of the Afghan war, we were talking something on the order of 400 or 500 American fatalities per year in combat. At the height of the Iraq War, we were talking several hundred per month.

So, at this point, we do have casualties. Each one is sad, but it’s a much smaller number. And for the White House to have not kept up was a surprise.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Already, Dan Lamothe of The Washington Post, thanks so much for joining us.

DAN LAMOTHE: Thank you.

WATCH: Trump says he won’t rule out military option in Venezuela

President Donald Trump says he’s considering possible military action against Venezuela in response to President Nicolas Maduro’s power grab.

Trump tells reporters at his New Jersey golf course Friday that he’s “not going to rule out” a military option.”

He adds that it’s “certainly something that we could pursue.”

Trump has been blasting Maduro’s moves to consolidate power, describing him as a “dictator.”

The Trump administration has issued a series of sanctions against Maduro and more than two dozen current and former Venezuelan officials.

But a military intervention would be an extraordinary escalation in response.

Military Wife Finds A Creative Way To Include Husband In Christmas Card

Husband and father of four Brandon Sistrunk won’t be home for the holidays this year, but that didn’t stop his wife Ashley from making sure they posed for their family Christmas card together.

Brandon is a staff sergeant in the Air Force currently deployed overseas in Iraq. Ashley and their four kids live thousands of miles away in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so she needed to get creative to make the group shot a reality.

Ashley’s mother took a photo of her and the kids, and a military friend of Brandon’s took a picture of him. Ashley then stitched the two images together in Photoshop and shared it with friends on social media. It was picked up by local news station KKTV 11 on Saturday and has since gone viral.

“Having a piece of your heart across the world, fighting for your country. It’s just a whole other level of emotions,” she said

Thankful for a mom that can cook!

A photo posted by Ashley Sistrunk (@ashley_sistrunk) on

Ashley also told KKTV that life as a military wife has been tough on her and the kids. Brandon was deployed during three of the children’s births and was unable to make it home.

“We tell the kids, ‘Yes, other kids have their daddy home right now,’” she said. “But their daddy is out being a superhero, keeping our country safe and that’s important ― that’s an important job.”

On Instagram, Ashley said that the holidays are a particularly difficult time for the family. 

“I hate wanting to wish away a holiday,” she wrote. “Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, but with Brandon gone and the kids begging to have him home on Christmas, it just won’t be the same. I know we are supposed to ‘live for today!’, but I wish I could wake up tomorrow and have it be late January!”

Fortunately, Brandon is set to return home to his family early next year. 

“[The kids] adore him,” Ashley told FOX21. “He will do anything for them. So I miss him actually being able to come home at the end of the day and they yell ‘Daddy!’”
