Trench Talk allows all Veterans to express their stories with no holds barred and that brings immediate gratification and the privilege to share. Meet Bo Dunning, United States Air Force, Retired who joined the military at age 23. With a family and a son stricken by a serious heart condition at birth, Bo chose the military as a way to support and educate his family. He is a father to two children and a lovely US Army veteran and wife who also served. Bo's military career began in 198 and he served and deployed to may remote locations with his comrades with whom he is still connected to presently. Bo recounts his boot camp experience and left for Lackland AFB for basic training not knowing what to expect yet he knew surely he would obtain the medical benefits needed to save his ailing son's life who is to date, healthy and living! Bo shared his military decision was also the first time ever on an airplane. Rebellious and determined, after Basic Training, he and his family moved to his first duty station, Chanute AFB in Illinois. From there Bo went to Malmstrom AFB MT and from there to King Salmon AFB AK. Then it was remote assignment after remote assignment and he was sent to Desert Storm. I had a son born while in Desert Storm, so I missed the birth of my second son. Bo even served in Korea on several occasions and France. My last tour was on a Navy Base, Port Hueneme Ca. where he studied and became an instructor. Bo has utilized and maximized all his military benefits and enjoys giving back and counseling fellow veterans. Bo had completed about 2/3rds of my BA degree upon retirement and after military retirement, he got a job running a truck shop in Fontana, CA and stayed in San Bernardino County whereby now he has a Master's Degree and specializes in Marriage and Family Christian Counseling. An unfortunate military issue called suicide motivates him to continue serving the military and their dependents all due to the death of an old freind and troop.

She continued her work with veterans at Sacramento State as the Veterans Benefit Advisor and Certifying Official, focusing on developing programs for student veterans. She also served as the Vice President of the Veterans Alumni Association. What qualifies a woman veteran that wants to reach out to another women veterans well is their own service and military experience. But more than that, it is the heart of their true intentions. Lindsey Sin understands. Vet to vet services are key and work best in this plight we have to rescue our women veterans.
