To our 13 year, WPAFB military family. First, thanks for serving! We sincerely appreciate your sacrifices you make! Your situation is precisely what we hope to draw attention to. We are in the process of contacting key Congressional staffers and some of the powerful trade organizations. You can help by forwarding the article to every military family you know and ask them to document there frustrations / experiences on the blog site. Thanks again for sharing your story with us.

VR SAM believes that you, the service member and your family, should have the same benefits as other federal employees when it comes to buying and selling your home incidental to military PCS orders. We also believe that the costs of a well planned program could be offset in a number of ways.

You can click the link below to view our full article recently published in to view our argument and proposal for such a program. We present this as a point of departure and recognize that any program must be carefully studied and constructed, and fiscally responsible. We believe that in the wake of an extended armed conflict in which our service members and their families have made extraordinary sacrifices to defend our freedoms, the political landscape is ripe for both parties to get on board with a program to "Support the Troops" that goes beyond letters, cookies, handshakes in the airports, and rhetoric. Such gestures are not insignificant and are indeed welcome, but what we propose will place a "roof over thier heads" that will enable our service familes to build personal wealth through homeownership...just like the citizenry that they defend! Help us help our Military Families share in the American Dream of Homeownership!

We know that many of you have been through this yourselves. We invite your comments and personal experiences. We invite you to forward this article with your thoughts to anyone you believe is appropriate. We welcome your assistance in building grass roots momentum for this effort. We encourage you to make your feelings known to your chain of command, elected officials, non-profit organizations that support military causes, your friends and family!

Please check back with us on a routine basis for updates on who is supporting this effort and how you can help! Here's the link to the full article. Thanks! VR SAM,15356,124157,00.html

Military Families Deserve the Best

This blog is established for military members and families to ask VR SAM questions directly. We may not have the answer(s) right away but we will do our very best to get them for you. The home buying/selling experience doesn't have to be a traumatic event. So, if you have questions or want to make a comment, this BLOG Site is for you!

Groundrule--we'll have to admit that we old retired military types are kinda new at this Blog thing. So, be patient with us while we learn this technology stuff right along with you. We've been told this is the first step in "Social Networking"--whatever that is!
