A Warrior’s Tale—The American Veteran Scorn Valor Homefront Transitional Story

Bob Cobb—the anonymous veteran story reporting source:

Patrick DeQueredo‘s Story:

I joined the Army upon my 17th b-day in 1979. I wanted to kick the Ayatollah’s ass. I was a paratrooper, and had the privilege of serving with the Rangers at Ft Lewis, WA. I also served at Ft Bragg (82nd Airborne Division).

We tortured each other in the barracks. Electric shock, waterboarding with puke water, beating, etc.

I drank and drugged for 25 years thereafter, not knowing I had severe PTSD, and various mental afflictions. I needed the drugs and such to function & SLEEP.

My life got WORSE after sobriety. Could not sleep, and the various drugs the VA plied me with made me worse, once culminating in me cutting myself hundreds of times with razors. The one drug that helped, THC (cannabis), got me locked up.

The VA, AND civilian experts have mentally committed me numerous times.

Today I am a shut-in, afraid to leave my house. Unable to work, obviously, barely able to walk. If I call the VA Crisis Line, they send the cops, who are untrained to help, and typically beat me down, handcuff me with guns in my face, and AGAIN commit me.

I am very scared. I see little purpose in life. Only my pets and wife (bless her) keep me going. I wish, “Care 4 Our Vets” was actually a thing. Alas, it is not. Only a talking point

Microaggressions Are the Result of Gas-lighting—Veterans Are the Target in the Workplace for Using the VA and Missing Work.

Meet Jacob Clary, the Oncoming Storm. Jacob and I have been dealt heavy low blows in life and are taking on Microaggressions by reporting them and educating other veterans about gas-lighting. We are teaming up to end veteran suicide one blog at-a-time through UW Whitewater Undergraduate Workplace Research.

Microaggressions End Here

by Brad Burt

After surviving a hostile workplace that ended up with going back to school I have decided to beat the 22 through journalism and blogging. UW Whitewater is developing the 422nd Rescue and Recovery Brigade to survey veterans through a pragmatic angle. We want to know from an anthropological perspective what is going on with our tribe. All research goes to the further advancement of PTSD veterans to be allowed unlimited access to stipends and mental health opportunities when the storm approaches that seeks to run us off the job.

Anthropology does not pay the bills. I would be an Anthropologist if it did. I am taking my college one step further by pursuing the human intersection of political shift amongst human beings to report through Op-eds. My undergraduate dialectical and syntax research are what I call “Flux Journalism.” My advisor and I are developing a program that integrates journalists with anthropologists to study American slang known as “Microaggressions.” Microaggressions are “hate slang.” Slang only seeks to do one thing—confuse anthropologists. By reporting political flux we see where slang and dog whistle ingroup mechanisms develop through microaggressions that detail where society is at war with itself.

War is colonization. War is the maze way to human extinction. Microaggressions are a form of speech colonization to gas-light and conquer people to manipulate them into believing they are the problem. Microaggressions are the result of ego superiority to oppress those who are weak.

Very simply, when you manipulate someone through sophistry (snake oil lies and trickery) you keep predators out of your resource pile. Intersectionality seeks to share with everyone. Intersectionality is frowned upon by Human Resources as their job is to prevent employees from organizing. Workplace cliques are a dead giveaway at hire you are a target for gas-lighting. The best thing a person can do at interview is to request a workplace harassment policy. Ask lots of questions regarding their demographic hiring method. You have the right to know.

Solution: In order to protect our tribe we must sponsor new employees to assemble veteran welcome committees even if we are at war in the workplace, put on a solidarity smile by being a coalition. Developing an independent veteran society through sponsorship excuses us from acting like adult derelicts. The first impression we give our newcomer should always be veterans are a solid presence in the workplace to confide when life becomes extremely difficult after returning home from war. Our job as veterans is to meet with HR to enforce zero tolerance bullying protections to distance veterans from other hostile coworkers.

We veteran elders are the ambassadors and stewards who utilize an in house system of coverage when the veteran needs to miss work—we take care of our own. The first place a veteran becomes acquainted at transition is at the point of landing a job. Enforce your company to mandate memorandums. A company that runs on suggestion is an unethical operation and is a predatory practice. Recognize the warning signs before its too late.

UW Whitewater OutPost 422 Undergraduate Research to Study the Correlation Between Microaggressions and Veteran Suicide

My name is Brad Burt. I am the founder of the 422nd Rescue and Recovery Briagde. I am here to enlist your story. I need to get to the bottom of veteran suicide after being roughed up at work for using the VA. I have taken my defeat and turned it into advocacy. Your story is sacred to me. I know the agony and angst that plagues the veteran who contemplates end of life options. The Veterans Crisis Line saved my life. Intro to Diversity Studies led me to researching microaggressions and am on a spiritually charged mission to stop the current veteran 22 statistic through the State of Wisconsin Department of Veteran Affairs Zero Veteran Suicide Initiative by telling the Scorn Valor story.

I am slated to take Undergraduate Research opportunities to collect stipends at UW Whitewater to investigate and report about veteran suicide. The Scorn Valor stories are my Outpost 422 WordPress blogs that is a PTSD case study to write Op-eds to end veteran suicide. The unique perspective of the scorned valor veteran can only be captured through the occurrence told in the first-person narrative. I will be using your story for my Madison College podcast to share with the public how microaggressions develop into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Your story is my Practicum research.

If you would like to remain anonymous send your story to bobcobbfreepressink@yahoo.com. Bob is our State of Wisconsin Homeland Security reporter who is always on the job. Your identity will be anonymous and will narrate your Scorn Valor story at the 4:22 Chronicles through the protected identity as “Bob Cobb.”

We are developing a series for Cobbcasts and PBS research to eventually create a 422 Channel to broadcast when there are enough stories for a 12-part series. Communications is my hobby and am dedicating my life to stopping microaggressions for using the VA and company EAP to get well. We are sharing two sides of the story. Stigma keeps veterans locked up in the closet who eventually suffer from complex PTSD due to communities who shame them for working full time and collecting disability. Shame on all of you blame veterans like me for accepting the hand of help from the VA.

Post 501 Service Officer’s Report

Greetings to all who are members of Post 501.  I am pleased to have been called to be your Service Officer.  Being a Service Officer is my passion. Keeping up with the VA takes dedication and attention to detail. I am also pursuing my UW Whitewater Liberal Arts Transfer at Madison College Truax Campus who hosts VA VITAL I have successfully graduated from. VA VITAL takes the veteran from the Crisis Line call and treats them at Building 22 to become future scholars through services offered at Truax. Reach out at our post membership meeting anytime if you would like to learn more.

The Role of the Service Officer is to manage its post membership to assist the Commander as a helping hand with information regarding opportunities through the VA. I am simply the Caboose, who seeks to comfort as I would ask to be comforted by offering an open door to hear from our shut-ins and those who are hospitalized. We need all our members to be recognized as a priority by the post and am always happy to make a visitation if you are in need of assistance. I am dedicated to you.  My Outpost 422 outreach mission is taking care of those who are homeless as well. I will be attending Common Council meetings to report back to the post and will be spending my time as an intern serving the Madison College Clarion as their General Manager of Broadcast starting in July. 

I am a service-connected disabled veteran attending Madison Area Technical College at Truax who has felt the damage of the impact of the 22 and am writing journalism coverage to report back to the post. I am dedicating my time to making sure the shut-ins, homeless, VA opiate overprescribed, and hospice are getting their needs met. We will be discussing launching a Facebook page to “go live” when we are working at the post to assist you and encourage all who cannot attend meetings to join. This is my first order of business at the June Executive Board meeting June 28th.

We are American Legion Communication Leadership Course trained and ready to take our Communications to the next level through blog boosting and fundraising. Thank you for your generosity through the Wisconsin G.I.

The Great Farmer’s Almanac Humble Pie Report

As a member of the agriculture community as a processor, I love to share the good news of the farming gospel at our post meetings with my Service Officer Report. Our agriculture infrastructure needs care and certainly hope all who are members of Post 501 will take the endangered species of Bees into account when gardening. I have enclosed a video from the Farmer’s Almanac website for all to view. Be kind to our bees please.

The Dedication to Being a WI DATCP Hemp Pilot Program Guardian as a Veteran Watchdog Journalist to Develop a Consumer Protection Processor for Homeland Security Solvency Reporting Methods.

Commander Cobb was formed by Post 41 of the American Legion on September 4th, 2018 to take on the rogue quorum issues of Madison NORML as an Ad Hoc Enforcer/Board Reporter for the newly adopted Hemp Pilot Program through Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Transportation, and Consumer Protection—The dedication to being a Veteran Watchdog Journalist is the ethical means as veterans to develop a Consumer Protection Processor for Homeland Security. We must dedicate our efforts to develop as Solvency Reporters to assist veterans who are preyed upon by lies to act as moral agents in our community. Tracking sellers through journalism methods is the means to an end to stop sellers from abusing the program. Our job as veterans is to keep track of dispensaries who prey upon our medical conditions with CBD disinformation. Just say no to NORML using the American Legion Brand—The Commander Cobb Madison NORML Slack Channel Ad Hoc Enforcer Report.

The Commander C.O.B.B. Consumer Protection Trust Fund is asking the State of Wisconsin under shared governance to allow the Sacred Warrior Church of Native America Inc. to be its destroyed Hemp salvage cooperative treasury.

  • We are asking we be the schedule one handlers of all destroyed Hemp and collect a $10 per bottle levy surcharge for all out-of-state CBD sold in Wisconsin.
  • We are requesting our state Republicans to join us in creating the first privatized state VA through Oracle to treat all veterans with PTSD and addiction through the assembly of the MASH unit the 422nd Rescue and Recovery Brigade.
  • Our headquarters is Tellurian detox facility in Madison.

If you are a guest, call the veteran Detox Chaplain number on the bulletin board and we will direct you to the Capitol Police to check in for green alert registry. We are corralling the Hemp Pilot Program and using the fines to fund a state privatized VA that runs on voucher club cards like they use in casinos.

Brad Burt 12:56 June 23rd, 2019

We need better statewide regulation of the Hemp Pilot program. I have witnessed a Deputy Director put out a cease and desist order to a competing dispensary through the illegal misuse of an LLC abusing their quorum executive job to strong arm them. I am putting a stop to this by creating a Consumer Protection Processor. Our current CBD program mainly runs out-of-state products we are putting a levy on. We want all sellers to comply to solvency through cooperatives. CBD is a schedule one being handled by untrained entrepreneurs.

I know full well of six dispensaries I am closely watching who prey on veterans to go off their medication for a 15% discount. I spoke of this to the UW, Madison College, The American Legion Post 501, The UW Madison Board of Regents Veteran Chair and the VA VISN 12 (Regional VA for Illinois and Wisconsin Board of Directors) to enforce tougher standards for sellers to be required to sell Wisconsin CBD Oil first. The apothecary on State Street sells all out-of-state product and think we are losing ground this way.

Undercover watchdog veterans are among you. We are all Communications majors and Madison College Journalism Certificate trained to keep an eye on the rogue behavior happening in our state. Consumer Protection Processors are schedule one Chaplains and handlers to assist law enforcement with detox, assist veterans with PTSD who are considering using CBD products to consult with them first to present risks, and are watchdog journalists who report to the Department of Homeland Security Department Chair through one united voice at the 4:22 Chronicles. We are stopping the looting of Hemp by adopting farms through Wisconsin Hemp Farmers and Manufacturers Association in exchange for three hots and a cot and vouchers.

Got a complaint or need someone to investigate local CBD rip-offs?

Message Bob Cobb or email bobcobbfreepressink@yahoo.com and we will be sure to file your anonymous complaint with the state.

Bob is our anonymous Hemp Pilot tip line who reports directly to DATCP Homeland Security Council Chair for the Hemp Pilot Program.

  • We are advocates for those who are being afflicted by scams due to an unregulated program.
  • We are all trained watchdog veterans who will do the dirty work of fact finding for you.
  • We are a nonprofit 501 c 3 medium called “the 4:22 Chronicles” who are scorn valored veterans taking our Rambo stories of workplace hazing and paying it forward as watchdog Op-ed writers united under one avatar.

We Cannot Afford Anymore VA Setbacks—All Veterans Deserve Mental Health Treatment Regardless of Discharge

The Crisis

Today is the day we all put our foot down with the VA. We must advocate that all veterans regardless of discharge receive mental health treatment whenever they reach out to the Veterans Crisis Line. Vietnam Vets served two tours and went home. Our combat veteran demographic shift all changed when President Bush declared stop-loss for those who fight the War on Terror. Our society is failing to accept that combat leads to chemical dependence that develops into other-than-honorable discharges. Vietnam vets should always be the first in line to receive treatment regardless of discharge. We are getting them the help they need one vet at a time. They are priority in my book. I lived with untreated conditions for twenty years and speak from a platform of first-hand experience with the VA.

The Dilemma

Our recent 22 per day epidemic stems from an over exacerbation of combat exposure that sends our troops 18 tours to combat in a non-special operator Military Occupation Skill! How long will it take for America to wake up and realize freedom is not a luxury? What will it take for you stop harassing veterans who use the VA and why do you feel the citizens have the right to marginalize veterans? You don’t! You do not know what the third world looks like until you get there. Stop judging. As a disabled veteran who was harassed to the point of needing to use the Veterans Crisis Line at work from journey workers who threatened violence I can say that I speak as an advocate who has graduated through the college VA VITAL program and will use my academics to write Op-eds to end this nonsense.

Joe Medicine Crow’s Dedication to Freedom and What This Means to Me

Plains Indians won honor by counting “coups,” or acts of bravery in battle. The most illustrious coup was to touch an enemy and escape unharmed — something that Medicine Crow wasn’t intending to do when he helped raid a German village.
Photo is an excerpt from Jay Hemmings (2018) “Joe Medicine Crow: Last War Chief Of The Crow Nation & Last Ever War Chief Of The Plains Indians.” The photo was picked as a resemblance of Americanism through the American Legion symbol marked on the podium. This article resonates as an archive branding usage with trademark protections through the Nation Command of the American Legion. Crow’s dedication in combat is a mark of tribal veterans and their efforts to recognize Americanism as the culture and mark of all members of the American Legion shown in his photograph. Do note the VFW cross as well. I also archive for the VFW as well as a member.

by Brad Burt

As we approach Memorial Day 2019, I would like to take a moment to recognize a member of the Armed Forces I became acquainted with as I was searching through the Wisconsin State Historical Society investigating tribal veterans who have gone above and beyond the call. After spending time researching the ways of the Lakota, I decided in September of 2018, I was going to open a Native Veteran Artifact Museum due to the overwhelming colonial artifacts at the Wisconsin State Veterans Museum lacking Native Veteran recognition. My archiving has begun and am looking to honor and dedicate a welcome center in Madison, WI for our members at OutPost 422. Our archives tell the truth of the Native American Veteran heritage story.

My journey began when I was first introduced to the Sundance Ceremony of the Native American Sacrament of Peyotism for my Anthropology final paper. Researching tribal history has helped me develop a deeper, broader, and enlightened perspective as to why Joe Medicine Crow’s War Chief accomplishment helped win World War 2. My favorite of the tasks assigned to a young member of the U.S. Army 103rd Infantry Division was a special mission to steal a horse from the enemy.

I imagine his determination to serve his people as nothing short of divine. One thing I have grown fond of with tribal veteran research is the extra effort a Native American warrior puts into their service. They walk the divine walk and have absolute ground-zero relentless determination and guts. The amount of guts that went into stealing a Nazi horse goes against the grain of a respectable individual in a egalitarian structured system. Crow received his blessing and went against all he was taught on the premise of just cause. War Chief Crow exemplifies honor.

One thing I admire about my tribal veteran friends from the United States reservations is their dedication to honor, integrity, and dignity. War Chief Joe Medicine Crow did not do this to receive awards like the garden variety suburban concrete warrior does. He did this to protect the future of his people. Stealing a horse and completing his mission was his divine pathway to honor, which is the main takeaway I have received through my Anthropological lens.

Writing editorials has developed my understanding of heritage of the Sundance Ceremony and the Longhouse Religion archiving I unearthed with Handsome Lake is where my love for journalism began. Our Native American Sacred Warriors are of high honor and ask we take a moment this Memorial Day to say grace and ask our Higher Power to bless the families of those who have troops deployed from reservations. I also ask we send up prayers to keep safe watch over their sons and daughters who are deployed.

Memorial Day is a time of reflection. I certainly hope we can reflect on the greater good of the will of the divine as a token of solitude amongst or veteran community. Our Americanism commission starts when we take time to include and invite all those who served to come to the harvest feast of honor on this blessed Memorial Day.
