9:13 a.m. Thursday 1/12/2023—Today kicks off writing the “I Will Not Forget” college experience diary. The diary examines the barriers with my academic success transferring from Madison College to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The diary will eventually publish into a book, which acts as an advocacy for those who awaken to being mistreated on campus as disabled veterans, first generation and nontraditional students. The Outpost 422 website is a sanctuary of support.
The diary style examines variables from the COMM 228 Interpersonal Communication course where my class journaled for two weeks regarding the pandemic lockdown experience for our final project. Outpost 422 covered the pandemic events for class projects that launched as a registered trademark.
Outpost 422 is my website created for the Madison College Journalism Certificate Social Media Writing course and the Madison College Challenge that developed into a documentary pilot for the Practicum 2 internship. The website was built for helping future veterans and their enrollment in the Madison College VITAL program after leaving treatment.
Sadly, you, the disabled veteran Madison College VITAL transfer, will meet aggressors who do not respect your service. They will conspire to place barriers in your path. Not all professors are friendly. The website is a relay in times of adversity.
The book and the website empower users as a philanthropy and attrition mitigation service. In other words, the tools that helped me succeed will help you succeed, and we will succeed together. We must dedicate our lives to three things: Helping each other up, publishing the POW MIA issue and keeping our campus community safe. We are a guardian angel task force.
Diary is philanthropy that does not necessarily require money but self-investment and dedication to paying forward. The book and website pay forward resources and referrals on several fronts. As a philanthropy, we lobby, we fight, we conquer academic abuse, we give freely of our wisdom for the preservation of our POW MIA and Gold Star Mother societies helping their families distribute their grief through our publications. Through our perseverance, we empower one another.
The variables we experience shall never be met with adversity. We fight by investing argumentation strategy through peer-reviewed scholarly sources. We use our academics for self-defense. We enlighten through mindfulness, which requires staying calm, cool and collected and dispelling the stigma of having a disability. We overcome impossibility through exercising our G.I. Bill and grant resources and pay the information forward as a relay of support.
We check in with each other through email and in person consultations. We are a relay to many governmental and veteran friendly corporations who seek building platforms for our success. We are the Sacred Warrior Search and Rescue Foundation. Our primary job as a task force seeks team building as a resource for beating attrition and succeeding by crossing the graduation stage.
