Madison College honors literature review chronologically examines variables inhibiting success amongst those utilizing G.I. benefits in college

The Madison College honors project is in the books as of May 30, 2023. The overview of the project includes a future recorded presentation regarding what hurts and what helps veterans and service members succeed.

The presentation shares the call for a mandatory qualitative survey amongst all who use G.I. benefits. The proposal for the survey asserts every university must assess the needs of those readjusting and reintegrating as service members each semester.

The honors project was prepared for the Madison College honors society hoping to achieve success by advocating for equity on both community college and university campuses. The project was stalled by the professor, and in many ways, was a barrier to my personal success.

The University of Wisconsin investigative division intervened on the basis of complaints filed addressing variables with my learning success. The complaints were backed by articles from the literature review.

Instead of holding parties accountable, the university conjured false narratives through hasty generalizations.

With the rise of veterans and service members attending post-secondary education, the reality of neglect and social isolation increases. All that I am advocating for with the literature review is a simple roll call at the end of the semester that can perform the service of mustering advocacy for equity as students, despite having a nontraditional status.

We must form up on all campuses and stand up for our right to receive equal treatment, and not have to file complaints to exercise our rights. The university is ironclad in their belief we are the problem, especially when it comes to my filing of complaints regarding intimidation and passive aggressive academic abuse.

The complaints were made in good faith based upon my discoveries seeking the opportunity to sit down with the chancellor and have a brief discussion on how we can change.

Instead, the university responded by shutting down my meeting, who then escalated matters, distracted me by bombarding me with emails, which eventually led to reaching out to elected officials for help.

The university denies us our right to freely express our values and when we speak up we deal with backlash. The literature is our first line of defense.

Veterans and servicemembers work through many unnecessary obstacles, like what happened to me, that lead to attrition. Attrition is a fancy term that represents statistics of those who drop out.

The presentation provides an overview of the oppression veterans and servicemembers face when seeking to fulfill their dreams when utilizing the benefits, they worked hard for. Many variables stop them from succeeding, which is the analysis the literature review provides.

The literature review advocates the university act accountably with professor conduct. The articles share the effects of lived experience.

We deal with professors who tote ideologies that clash with our convictions to protect the Constitution. Professors escalate and gaslight through emails, which is alarming.

Why would anyone deliberately attack someone who defended their American way of life? Why are professors allowed to disrespect us? Yet, when we discuss military culture in our class project assignments, we receive backlash with low grades and micro assaults in graded commentary.

There must be a qualitative survey each semester collected by a third party and analyzed. That third party is Outpost 422. We are your academic distress support and success center.

During the research collection process, I attempted to work with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater veterans resources coordinator. By March 2022, the topic of attrition had him angry.

By March 30, he pulled me in his office for an inappropriate conversation that went off the grid asking me personal questions and accusing me of staging complaints. Resilience, one of the literature review variables building success, led the charge.

The paper was finalized and turned in despite Madison College and UW Whitewater’s deliberate attempts to derail the project.

The variables of neglect and intimidation, discussed in the video featured below, shares the story of a person working for the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs that targeted me while attending school. He also conspired with his group to run my fellow Army brother Richard Harris off campus, who was our resource coordinator.

He was the president of the Veterans and Servicemembers Organization at the time. His group cultivated bullying in the veteran’s lounge. The lounge is a hostile learning environment.

The videos provide insight from the honors literature review. From 2017 to 2023, many of the barriers listed in the literature review surfaced, confirming there is a problem with universities and their handling of student veterans and service members on their campuses.

The key to becoming successful? Utilize office hours and get interpersonal with professors. They are just as scared as you. PTSD is the scarlet branding of the combat veteran. Professors are inept with handling our affairs. The honors literature review is their go to resource.

The paper seeks establishing a support group for VITAL veterans who transfer from the Madison VA Hospital.

The paper provides workshop information for effectively supporting student veterans and service members, which builds teams and leaders out of those who lack confidence through collaborative POW MIA profile investigative research.

The “I Will NOT Forget” campaign kicks off the advocacy for qualitative reporting of misconduct by parties who harass and intimidate veterans both in and out of the classroom.

The project was built between the COMM 242 Team Building and COMM 373 Leadership courses. The research seeks publication of the POW MIA issue in class projects as a means to stand up to our oppressors who forget them.

The Outpost 422 website is the future of third party mandatory affirmative action reporting. The term “VetQuity” represents the veteran and service member stake.

The road ahead seeks empowering those who serve in the classroom with POW MIA transparency and publication awareness. We must enforce our right to the freedom of academic expression no matter what.

By speaking up in multimedia, we possess the power to make change. Diversity, equity and inclusion includes the POW MIA, their families and all of us transition from the military.

We deserve equity for our service. Our buy in matters.

The path to success starts with resilience. The videos share the experience. Stay the course and never waiver. Nothing will change until we start speaking up. You can do so by filling out the contact form.

Let’s get you squared away with academic success. Your time to use your hard-earned benefits is now, but not without a community of support. The honors project is finished and now we get to work standing up to the oppressors who stall our projects and silence our voice.


The Outpost 422 registered trademark launches a new interactive podcast website called ‘Metal Cum Laude’

On Sunday May, 28, 2023, a brainstorm happened at the Rave during the Milwaukee Metal Fest event. A new approach to metal music is upon us honoring the achievements of those who attain academic success in the metal scene.

The show is called “Metal Cum Laude.” The goal for the show? Build a revitalization movement for those who want to broaden their horizon intellectually.

The show features the intellectual side of those who have a passion for post-secondary education and listen to metal. The name is trademarked as a new form of journalism called “interactive media.”

The podcast converges journalism and research writing with musicianship. The development of the brand offers tips and insights ranging from how to score an “A” to how to write a masterpiece ensemble.

Stay tuned here for more information. Keep checking back for updates.

All multimedia will be mixed and mastered through Autumn Landmine Productions.

FINAL PROJECT Intro to Creative Enterprise 166: Envision your creative future

Creative empowerment takes the warrior out of the battle ready mindset and leaves the war behind. Outpost 422 is transitioning into the next phase, which is a civilian readjustment writing support group sponsored by the Sacred Warrior Fellowship Inc.

Intro to Creative Enterprise 166 Tues./Thurs. 6:30-7:45 p.m.

Prof. Michael Betker


Envisioning a creative future

The road ahead requires building a portfolio website as a reflection of the road left behind. Despite setbacks and letdowns, titles, hardships and hangups, at least the bittersweet taste of having a $0 balance appear for the FAFSA loan exit interview. Free is free.

One can’t complain unless the cost of freedom comes at the price of losing face. I fondly recall my first meeting with my advisor. Now, all I see is her grimace when she speaks my name. I stand by my vow never to mistreat someone who served. I promise I will take my Warhawk experience and empower veterans who are lost, like I was, with the lessons of creative enterprise.

The future will magnify and echo the values of fealty to my Constitutional oath. I served and continue to serve as a multimedia journalist. The feeling is surreal knowing I never have to step foot on a jobsite or a sweaty paper mill unless I choose. Freedom is a state of higher consciousness.

The creative future I want seeks enlightenment and pursuit of creativity in connection with my fullest potential. I vow never to cower in the face of adversity. My higher self aligns with emotional intelligence and stays grounded in each moment. Living in the moment is my strength.

In each moment, I have a breath. I have life. Creativity will manifest if I focus on each task and dedicate my focus to manifesting awareness as my guide. Creativity is mindfulness and mindfulness is innateness. Through innateness, I find the value of staying empowered with my higher creative consciousness.

I will dedicate my focus and make creativity my focal point by letting the creative energy flow and use concepts like meditation and physical fitness in conjunction with journaling or doodling. Self-care is the priority.

In five years, I will travel the world seeking opportunities for creative collaboration. I plan on building creative empowerment workshops that connect those who are unable to see their true potential with the means for creative alignment. Eventually, as one ecstatic brainstorm and project development, the group will select a leader or leaders who will keep each other united.

As a leader of leaders, I will use lessons learned for opening new horizons and open minds who remain shut. As I feel the cold shoulder exiting Heide Hall, the moment passes like a newly lifted fog. Judgement has followed me each day spent learning in a space that did not welcome me. I will use the pain for building projects for channeling my grief. The burden is heavy.

My memories of Heide Hall are jaded, which are the illumination of my Jaded Patriot Press. The pain can be easily lifted when writing feature stories. The features lifted me out of the pit of despair when I began writing.

Over the next five years, I will perfect my writing craft and distribute my grief, like a spell casting shadows over my career. I did not walk away with support. Only anguish and doubt for those coming up behind me transferring from Madison College.

In 10 years, I hope the world changes its ways and sees the value of the nontraditional stake. Over the next 10 years, I will vow to keep working diligently despite the low appraisal of those who never walked a mile in my shoes, or combat boots. I will build a new term called, “VetQuity,” which will require creativity for civilian reintegration at the local Vet Center or Veterans Affairs Hospital. I am 10 times better off than when I started.

I will use creativity to keep me illuminated and will encourage all to assess their creativity with the Myers Briggs questionnaire. Free college is the art of gonzo journalism. The jaded stake is the price we pay for enduring backlash when using our benefits. Like Author Kurt Vonnegut says, “So it goes.”

I will never waste a minute recalling a dismal moment at Heide Hall. Madison College will bring me back into revitalization. For my future, I will not let adversity beat diversity. I will see the value of all who are bright enough to call themselves intellectuals and bring comedy into my creative routine for nurturing and healing. Time heals all wounds.

My time spent on the battlefield was more welcoming than Heide Hall. My tour of duty is over. But the journey to building future proteges has only just begun. I will send more like me through the system who will come out Summa Cum Laude like I did. Overcome Impossibility.


Intro to Creative Enterprise 166: Final journalism pandemic college experience reflection

For the final last-minute class assignment for our Intro to Creative Enterprise 166 course, we had to analyze Suresh Jayakar’s Ted Talk.

Jayakar shared an interesting concept he calls “design thinking.” Currently, I am using this concept for my next job working as the business director at the Madison College Clarion newspaper.

I am returning after graduation to build their interactive footers for their experimental newsletter. The job landed in my lap after reading the newspaper while eating my breakfast. For those who have never attended Madison College, the cafeteria is the best experience.

Instead of eating gut bombs from Esker Hall, we have actual chefs preparing our food. The concept came from design thinking during a survey and town hall listening session by our dean of the college.

Dr. Jack Daniels instills this concept in his learners. He wants all who attend his school have inexpensive alternatives to standard college cafeteria experiences.

I believe this idea ties into what Jayakar describes with his story about the food truck. Daniels believes in investing in the college poverty problem. Attending both schools is like night and day. The problem I experience at Whitewater that I don’t at Truax is segregation.

The segregation between traditional and nontraditional social classes broods prejudice. Like Jayakar says, “Because sometimes, traditional ways of doing things just doesn’t work.”

My biggest problem I am solving for the Clarion as their business director is innovation with new technologies based on the segregation and cultural incongruity experiences I had working for the Royal Purple. I am proposing a nontraditional brainstorm session thanks to our lessons from our creative enterprise class.

I have been in the trenches with the college since March 2020, when we had to take the broadcast platform from our server to podcast format. Students had their studio time and ran their shows.

Traditionally, the Royal Purple shut down because their staff is dominated by traditional students with no experience in the field. The Clarion ran the entire time because we had nontraditional and traditional equity and buy in.

When I worked shortly for the Royal Purple, the advisor took me from being the multimedia editor all the way to taking me off the budget without telling me why. The Royal Purple is unfriendly to people of age and disabilities.

The Clarion encourages diversity and allows nontraditional students opportunities by being a student ran press. The Royal Purple is a business.

At the Clarion, I was running meetings and have published many stories. Freedom to explore and offer ideas each week was provided by allowing all who wish to submit stories. The Royal Purple uses a niche concept and does not allow buy in from nontraditional learners.

Again, night and day. The Royal Purple’s advisor is a sports reporter who trolls stories based on his allegiance to the Greek society. His fixed mindset would not allow gonzo journalism based on his prejudice that gonzo journalism “is for druggies.” Dr. Hunter S. Thompson was a sports editor for Elgin Air Force Base and was discharged honorably.

The Clarion has no Greek buy in. The Royal Purple uses a fixed mindset. The lesson: community college will provide more opportunities in journalism than the university. Ageism runs the university press.

The point I am making? We are intellectuals, like what was shared by Jayakar. As we close, I ask all of my colleagues when you enter the field to give nontraditional employees a chance and seek their advice. Your choice could come down to shutting down or operating your investment. Shutting down is the last resort.

Hell is Warm on the Homefront interactive podcast builds domestic abuse confessional for UW-W Fundraising for Charities 371 grant letter proposal

Excerpt from Management 371 Fundraising for Charities Proposal Letter

The Sacred Warrior Fellowship Inc., a virtual newsletter and community resource outreach support group agency, seeks a $10,000 grant for an interactive multimedia campaign.

The campaign featured profile is Christine Ann Schambow, who is the namesake of a credible gender non-exclusive domestic abuse awareness entity called the Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services Inc.

The organization serves both the virtual community globally, with advocacy through its website, and the Oshkosh community locally through its Christine Ann Center, which provides sanctuary and counseling for domestic abuse survivors.

The grant will be used for establishing “Christine Ann Day,” which will develop over the course of one-year as a viral campaign. The campaign will provide a confessional for domestic abuse survivors to speak their truth.

The campaign tackles the origins of Machiavellianism, groupthink, gaslighting and narcissistic abuse through a program called, “Hell is Warm on the Homefront,” which is an interactive podcast and livestream Vimeo call to action supporting the advocacy of the Christine Ann Center in Oshkosh.

Collaboratively, through the legacy of Schambow, we are creating a global canvass and revitalization movement.

Outpost 422 launches campaign honoring the life of Christine Ann Schambow on April 8, 2023


Today, we launch the membership creative empowerment movement for the brand, which is called “The Sacred Warrior Fellowship Inc.”

As college winds down this semester, the summer will provide opportunities to begin campaigning for the “Christine Ann Day” project. We are seeking support from local businesses.


We are handing out feminine hygiene care products and currently writing a $50,000 grant proposal for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Management 371 course.

Outpost 422 is developing a “smart” table that will allow individual contributions as citizen journalists for our newsletter pressroom. Today, we announce our first Sacred Warrior campaign, which is the life of Christine Ann Schambow, who is the namesake for the Christine Ann Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

We are building a creative empowerment movement to use publishing and creativity for awareness and team building support.

Press Release: American Legion District 3 of Wisconsin ignores ongoing problem at Post 279 in Marshall, Wisconsin


On Sunday March 26, 2023, I met with a past post commander of American Legion Post 279, Marshall, Wisconsin.

Valar Rogers served in the Coast Guard and am writing a profile story about his life growing up in Marshall. His current situation looks grim.

Rogers and I stopped into the post’s bingo event, which was open to the public. We were conducting an interview about his service to the post.

The current posing commander would not let Rogers attend and notified him he was trespassing. Little did I know, my Instagram was livestreaming and caught the audio from the event. Please review the video.

Rogers noted he is receiving harassment in the form of mail witnessing an escalation of funeral planning mailers in his mailbox. Previously, he received a package from an unnamed source with a noose.

As a past county service officer, I witnessed our county commander act violently and screamed at Rogers and his brother Caleb. The screaming stems from their insistence they are within their rights as members to continue serving as post commander and adjutant.

The brothers are trying to address their POW MIA Stolen Valor Revitalization effort to bring the Marshall post into a fourth pillar, which represents the namesake of four Legionnaires.

The fourth Legionnaire being honored by their revitalization effort is a Korean War POW from their post.

The brothers claim they are the ones being harassed. Prior to Sunday’s bingo escapade, Post 279’s commander filed a restraining order against Caleb and appeared angered when Valar showed up.

During our interview, Valar indicated Caleb witnessed past State Vice Commander Keith Lovell assist the current commander with advisement with restraining orders, who was not to involve himself with post matters.

Previously, I brought forward concerns as an adjutant who stepped down due to false reporting by the commander of the post Lovell belongs to. We were amending the Post’s Constitution and By Law without our judge advocate.

My minutes reflected the changes. The commander edited the minutes that quoted the exact changes happening. I brought my concerns to the department adjutant.

According to State Adjutant Nathan Gear, who stated, “the department cannot get involved in post affairs.”

If that were the case, Lovell’s appearance at Caleb’s restraining order hearings would fall under the category of involving himself in post affairs, according to Rogers.

The public must know where their money is being invested. The organization uses adversarial rhetoric when a member attempts to outshine other post executives according to the brothers of Post 279.

The issue is concerning after being a witness to the hostility that occurred on Sunday.

I emailed my concerns to District 3 representative Gerard Hook, who prefers being called “Jerry.” My concerns were addressed as follows:

Post 279 incident on Sunday 3.26

to Gerard
Hi Jerry-
Post 279 had a bingo event open to the public. I stopped in with Valar Rogers. We are writing a story about his Coast Guard service. During our visit, interim Post Commander Scott Relitz (sp.) asked Valar to leave and told him his membership is with Post 2930 and that he was trespassing.
Valar attempted to pay his dues. His American Legion statement clearly marked “0279” as his post identifier. I was able to diffuse Relitz who indicated because there were people there he would remain calm. I perceived his behavior as aggressive towards Valar and am noting this in my feature story.
For the record, Valar’s picture was not posted on the wall as a past commander. I am still with Post 2930 for now. I am bringing this to your attention as an American Legion member. I would like your feedback before I publish this matter.
I do not believe Relitz behaved in accordance with our preamble and witnessed, from what Valar noted as Post 279’s auxiliary executive, a hostile conversation take place when Valar attempted to sit down and play bingo from the woman sitting at the table when walking in.
Bradley Burt
As of 3:54 p.m., Hook responded claiming the issue has not been ignored, however, the press release email request did allow for fairness and accuracy. The email time stamps provide accuracy allowing for a period of 24 hours for inquiry response.

Overcoming Impossibility: The Madison College honors literature review rewrite update


During the month of March 2023, the University of Wisconsin reopened my complaint for hate/bias in the veterans lounge at their Whitewater campus. A 48-page confidential exhibit and complaint amendment created the first linear document for reporting a hostile learning environment.

The exhibit was a rhetorical analysis excerpt from the convergent media studies submission for the independent study 498 course during the fall 2022 semester, which was an appendix to the Autumn Landmine Productions business plan.

The exhibit documented the university’s retaliation for filing a complaint. The university libeled me on several counts and have handed the exhibit over to the Dept. of Education for review.

On March 15, 2022, I set out on a journey to unearth the barriers for veteran and service member success at the Whitewater campus. I have been working hard to stay focused after receiving backlash for doing so.

With that being said, I am going to keep this brief. The proctoring professor of my Madison College honors project went beyond the scope of her role as the oversight. She deceived me into signing a contract that had an informal ad infinitum clause stating I could turn in late work and improve the grade and that “I cannot modify the paper.”

The variables of the honors project survey the barriers and facilitators for success. I am eliminating the success variable and focusing solely on one term.

The veteran college experience deals with attrition and social isolation. The rewrite is an excerpt from the next phase, which is the writing of a survival manual for veterans and service members believing the lie their nation told them at the recruiting station.

The lie: You can go back to school and use your G.I. benefits without hassle.

I am announcing today I am trademarking under the Outpost 422 linear writing style a term I will be referring to as “Vet-quity,” which is the disenfranchisement of veterans and service members in the classroom who deal with lowball grades and micro assaults when writing papers and participating in person.

This happened to me frequently at the Whitewater campus. We need to make this stop. “Vet-quity” is a call for revitalization or a total boycott of using veteran benefits and a walkout from university attendance. We deserve buy in. We deserve a quality education. We do not deserve to be loathed for our service.

Please fill out the contact form if you are dealing with academic abuse and come forward and share your story here. You deserve respect for using your G.I. benefits. Not the “non-traditional” beratement we receive. We are one.

Respectfully Submitted,

Bradley J. Burt

CEO-Outpost 422
