We are seeking corporate investors join our Autumn Landmine Productions Newsflix firm.
We seek corporate employee assistance firms for helping develop a veteran and pandemic refugee reintegration strategy through the “landing strip” project in honor of Wisconsin Air National Guard MIA 1st Lt. Jerome A. Volk.
The project was developed through a corporate communication class for leadership and team building. We seek investors for developing the next phase.
The backpack journalism brand goes on location and cultivates convergent media for submissions to corporate social responsibility campaigns.
We have hit a snag and need support.
We cannot connect the University of Wisconsin with any content about sex workers and the pornography industry, which was the findings of the Gonzo-19story.
Instead, we have relayed the recent revelation to Hustler magazine, who saved me from homelessness. As a brand owner, I have to allow their firm the right to publish my story as a token of gratitude.
I cannot discuss the issue inside the confines of the UW brand.
The inquiry was submitted through the Hustler contact submission form. TSA allowed me boarding privileges without a driver’s license, but the Strat did not.
I did not have a passport and strongly urge those who visit Vegas carry one as a backup plan.
Letter Submission to Hustler magazine:
I am conducting an independent study for my journalism final project.
I wanted to write a story about Larry Flynt’s 40th anniversary celebrating free speech and wrote about a trip to Pahrump before I tried to interview John Gruden while visiting Vegas.
I ended up at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Lounge during my Auguust walk and received a VIP experience from a dancer named Strawberry. She saved my life when I returned in December and got kicked out of the Strat for only having VA id.
The limo driver gave me a safe ride and the Lounge vouched for me to stay at Planet Hollywood. I was on the verge of homelessness. I requested I send the story for an independent academic submission to Beaver Hunt thanking Larry Flynt for keeping me safe and for helping people who received Dear John letters in combat receive free Hustler magazines.
My professor is livid and don’t know what else to do. My college disabled veteran reporting outlet is called Outpost 422.com. I have a $2.5 million Go Fund Me campaign. I am trying to raise money to rename our journalism hall from Heide Hall to Hustler Hall to commemorate the POW MIA issue through the disability advocacy of Larry Flynt, who was our topic of choice for our free speech survey in my professor’s law history final paper.
I chose Bobby Seale instead.
I wanted to write another paper and am being told pornographic publishers are not considered academic and could cause a Title IX lawsuit. That’s your gonzo thanks, and documentary logline, for helping a fellow intellectual drifter navigate a close call for saving a disabled veteran in Vegas. I am trying to bootstrap a trip to Los Angeles to finish my documentary.
Please let me know if there are social responsibility grants provided by your philanthropy that could help me out. I could quid pro quo a filmed interview with a member of your firm for a future social responsibility project in Los Angeles.
I am trying to build inclusivity safe zones through the POW MIA issue on Las Vegas Blvd., Hollywood Blvd. and State Street in Madison, Wisconsin. The philanthropy investment will go to helping pandemic refugees and intellectual drifters find resources in times of distress, which is the primary mission of Outpost 422—my registered trademark and disabled veteran college experience.”
This assignment correlates with Outcome #4: Investigate how social media may influence our personal branding
Shayna and Scott were my mentors. They are my guides. The Linked In video reassured me of the truths about branding. Too little too late. When I began using social media, I was unemployed and dealing with PTSD.
Social media has always appeared as a tabloid. Now, I realize the power of viral campaigning, which is the subject for inspection.
The five things I found important were value, vanity, vintage, volume, and voyeur. The value of your content on social media builds vanity. Vanity manifests through the algorithm. Artificial intelligence markets the meta of the end user, which attracts them to your brand.
This is a mistake as a branded journalist. Bootstrapping is my passion. The vintage factor of our digital footprint could cost us a viral campaign.
The market is flooded with bots. You are competing with the sniffers more than your consumer on YouTube. Keywords build brands based on reputation, which is the vintage factor.
Volume is regulated through analytics. If a person spams too much, the bots flag the brand’s account. I learned this with Facebook business. Analytics drives the campaign. The voyeur is your potential customer who frequents your page but doesn’t stay very long. Collaboratively, the social media community drives the brand.
I was unable to take the quizzes. I have provided a copy of my brand for future use with students. The brand started out in the Practicum 1 course and is the entry to the Madison College Challenge.
Please pass onto Jill for her inspection. My show is being branded through my brand as a specific communications research brand and will be privatizing the VA.
Mentors from Wisconsin businesses met with veteran entrepreneurs April 23, 2021, offer Zoom coaching sessions during the E-seed Startup Surge Event.
The Surge Event
The D.J. Bordini Center of Fox Valley Technical College teamed up with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs through grant funding to help veterans grow their businesses.
The Venture Center Director Amy Pietsch hosted the event during the E-seed Entrepreneurship Series of the Veterans Innovator Course. Pietsch meets with the COHORT 2 class on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Autumn Landmine Productions
Mentors met with a newly forming business called, “Autumn Landmine Productions.”
The Zoom session allowed for one-on-one consultation providing feedback and next steps to take.
During break out sessions, topics covered ranged from legal paperwork advising, brainstorming,
The PitchBradley Burt, founder of Autumn Landmine Productions, went back to college to pursue the Technical Studies Journey Worker Degree. Burt stumbled into the Madison College University of Wisconsin Liberal Arts Transfer program after his return in Fall of 2017.
The Madison College Center for Entrepreneurship helped him stay in school to support his income.
Burt is creating an online interactive newspaper, The Jaded Patriot, and the Operation: Greenspace Wisconsin veteran newsletter, which captures found footage by at-risk veteran footage takes on his Facebook pages to spotlight socioeconomical hardship. Autumn Landmine Productions operates as the executive producer like a print newspaper.
The value proposition provides the viewer with an ethical vantage point versus a biased opinion of bloggers.
The minimal viable production collects found footage and produces loglines through storyboarding preproduction, Adobe software production and adheres as a brand to documentary ethics.
Autumn Landmine Productions follows the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater ethical standard for publishing during postproduction.
Autumn Landmine brings black and white print standards into the multimedia industry when grey areas appear in found footage.
Autumn Landmine Productions films documentary through Facebook live and uploaded footage. The footage takers provide the content.
Autumn Landmine Productions edits footage according to documentary ethics for publishing purposes.
Burt seeks three angel investors offering each a trustee position on his corporate social responsibility campaign 501 c 3 board.
Autumn Landmine seeks $25,000 for start up to establish the online medium through Stellar Blue Technologies.
The agency doubles as an at-risk veteran social media safety net called Operation: Greenspace HRF, which gives away Wi-Fi devices to the homeless at the Wisconsin State Capitol as an at-risk veteran checkpoint. They are the Jaded Patriots.
An entrepreneur’s elevator pitch offers cross-examination by mentors, investors and lenders the opportunity to weigh in on the strengths and weaknesses of a startup. Mentors met with students to narrow their focus and enlighten the road ahead.
The feedback from mentors helped Autumn Landmine sort through the nuts and bolts of marketing and revenue streams.
Drew Mueske, founder of Tee Forward, offered solid advice by reaching out to his friends at warriorsongs.com to see if they would like to help generate documentaries. Connecting with other veteran organizations helps the community grow.
Dana Coyhis, founder of Not for Now LLC, suggested pitching the idea to VICEto generate exposure. Finding that first revenue stream launches the business and will generate more exposure once the first client relationship gets established.
Rob Kleman from the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce provided a wealth of knowledge ranging from legal services, available financing, what not to do and a friendly consultation.
Mentors pointed the agency towards philanthropies who support veterans. The Surge session helped prevent setbacks with new business ventures that launch offering friendly advice.
Pietsch guided the sessions between 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. through ten minute sessions on Zoom.
Key Supporters and the Road Ahead
Autumn Landmine Productions pitches on April 28th to 1 Million Cups for class. The agency seeks to solicit opportunities for key supporters to donate and be listed in documentary credits.
Burt will begin shopping for trustees and key supporters to apply for a WDVA grant to create a social media safety network.
Autumn Landmine Productions through the recommendation by Pietsch will seek to consult with Stellar Blue Technologies. The grant funding will be used to start up The Jaded Patriot Press after completion of the Publication: Editing Course at UW Whitewater in Spring of 2022.

I am announcing my candidacy for president and will provide you with a video format I have trademarked through my college capstone class project called Outpost 422.
As the president, I will advocate for what I am currently lobbying for as the CEO of the Outpost 422 registered trademark. I am lobbying for a unilateral testing and proctoring method for those who deal with trauma informed and brain injuries. And I am asking whenever a professor escalates a situation through diabolical rhetoric found in microaggressions, we be excused from all class participation and examinations for 72-hours for panic attack de-escalation.
The other item I am advocating for is a low light room for all to use as a chaplain confessional opportunity when dealing with PTSD from social isolation. I am currently working with the Whitewater Student Government president arranging these accommodations for myself.
I would like all who work with CSD receive the same privileges as combat vets. As your president and brand owner, I will abide by shared governance policies and create open channels of communication for students with disabilities who deal with aggressive proctoring and lecture methods. I will send you a video this week for my candidacy announcement.

Bradley J. Burt
Intro to Corporate Communication Online
Dr. S-A Welch
I scored an 18 based upon where I am in my college journey. The last time I worked for a company full-time was in 2017. I answered the work-related questions based upon my most recent job as the past general manager of broadcast at Madison College for Clarion Radio.
My colleagues respected me because I made sure their equipment was working and helped them edit their shows on my free time and went above and beyond. I was open with colleagues regarding upcoming events on campus that would help them develop their shows and prep for their university transfer.
Being a leader and honors society member is a privilege. For recalling psychosocial questions found in the survey, I looked back to experiences as a low-ranking employee. I recall those years as an experience of how not to perform and communicate as a leader.
The interesting results from the survey indicated my coffee intake affected my ability to communicate effectively, which I argue on the grounds that coffee intake requires me to get up and walk to the break room and make more, which is an informal role that stimulates performance.
Drinking lots of coffee was the only answer affecting my communication savviness. My coffee intake is an integral part of my brainstorming capabilities. Although coffee increases stress, coffee is a part of my military culture.
We collaborate and plan many precautionary steps over a cup of coffee. Coffee brews strategy.
I do not agree that business meetings are a waste of time. Business meetings convey the ideology of how well the organization carries out its mission.
As for politics at the office, as I stated in previous class discussions, politics leads to endorsing groupthink. In the manufacturing industry, seniority cultivated groupthink. Senior union employees dominated the flow of information with managers, and if others spoke up or spoke too much, the senior members would use passive aggressive communication and misinformation to make an example out of an employee.
The toxic workplace made for a negative mindset. I learned I must refrain from conformity as a leader and innovator.
The phobias described throughout the survey like, “my colleagues are jealous of me,” could easily be remedied through an employee assistance program. I do not align with bringing conspiracy theories to the workplace.
I expect my colleagues, subordinates, and those above me respect the workplace by keeping their personal life at home, and if an employee needs some support, as a manager and CEO of my brand, I will make sure you know where to locate available resources for well-being. For an organization to thrive, one must keep a watchful eye on their well-being, which includes how we communicate with each other. What we persist will exist.
For a company’s well-being, dominant stakeholders who possess a score lower than 17 should consider an employee assistance option.
Let’s revisit week three and discuss the influence of dominant stakeholders and the quest as leaders in pursuit of the prudential state through virtuosity. According to Professor Joep Cornelissen’s textbook “Corporate Communication: A Guide to Theory and Practice,” dominant stake holders, which are the company’s moral agents, possess both “powerful and legitimate claims, giving them a strong influence on the organization” (Cornelissen, 2020, p. 70).
Dominant stakeholders possessing a less-than-savvy attitude affect the flow of information. As the distributors of communication and enforcers of socialization with the rites of passage within organizational culture, dominant stakeholders influence executive decisions, which affects everyone.
Their job is keeping you informed and safe. When an employee comes between the mission, the dominant stakeholders enforce policies. From my experience working in unions, I have witnessed leaders disrupt the workplace and use groupthink to undermine dominant stakeholders.
All employees are dominant stakeholders as moral agents. A solution the company could try would be mindfulness workshops for corporate quarterly gainshare meetings. Corporations, through social responsibility, produce quarterly statements that provide information regarding free services the company provides for well-being found in their corporate social responsibility transcripts available to employees.
Individually, we are all dominant stakeholders of our mindset. Employee assistance programs are free services provided by the company for all to use. I am not ashamed to admit I have used employee assistance programs when dealing with groupthink abuse. The program helped me keep grounded in the workplace and deflect the opinion of others so that I could concentrate on my job.
Organizational Culture/Employee Engagement
Dr. Welch’s PowerPoint for week six discussed two items that provide tools for success when coping with a negative mindset. Welch (2022) states, “Culture is the culmination of what is seen as the best way to conduct business.” Through organizational cultural norms, which spotlight effective communication practices, culmination manifests through promotion.
Culmination rewards employees who demonstrate innovative behavior that led to climbing the corporate ladder through promotion.
Those who communicate the mission effectively by influencing flow when working with others climb the ladder as an American corporate norm. Scoring less than 17 could potentially threaten the viability of the business and lead to demotion or termination.
Getting help immediately will change the outlook of the future. Let’s examine groupthink. Oftentimes, when working in a group of let’s say a less-than-dominant stakeholder position, the odd person out would stress over not fitting in. The ability to shine within the culture could be shunned.
When I worked in the manufacturing industry, those who worked hard were the first to get let go, which was the cultural norm of working in a union shop.
I chose housekeeping as a norm by setting the standard with safety. No matter how high up the ladder I was in authority, I was never too good to push a broom whenever there was a lull.
Being a model stakeholder in an organization comes from having a humble mindset and staying low to the ground.
The week six Power Point also discussed motivators with the employee engagement section. Dr. Welch (2022) indicated “The power/authority to make decisions” is a motivator for employee engagement. Having buy in at the bottom of the ladder retains employees, which I have experience with my previous employee. Bonuses helped me cope with Machiavellian abuse.
The survey questions reflect the ability to profile, discern, and effectively survey conflict effecting the landscape of communication flow based on the individual’s perception through employee engagement. The bulleted information and survey were an eye opener.
The PowerPoint and survey recalled an event regarding employee engagement that reminded me of a time when I was working on the shop floor regarding buy in.
The union demanded lower seniority employees speak to them first before going to the boss and if we went to human resources, we would be considered a snitch and ran off the job.
The company, through its gainshare program, allowed all employees the opportunity to bring ideas forward, which allowed for lower seniority workers a chance to win prizes and receive recognition.
By opening the floor to suggestions, lower ranking employees received buy in and worker harder and stayed later for opportunities to receive bonuses.

PRESS RELEASE—I want to make this brief. Over the last three years, I have been dealing with being targeted by the marines at the Whitewater Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in the veterans lounge at the Anderson Library, the veterans resources coordinator and faculty who used gatekeeping methods that cost me a “W” last semester.
Faculty acts aggressively with transfers from Madison College. I am not the only one.
I am also a member of the Madison College Honors Society helping those dealing with transfer anxiety prep through workshops at Phi Theta Kappa. We want to see you succeed.
I do not feel safe on campus and am attending both the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and Madison College because Whitewater will not provide me the same accommodations that Madison College does.
I want to share with you my ongoing Machiavellian experience and hope you will evade being treated the same way.
I want to share my story with those who are considering Whitewater as their transfer school.
Not all students and faculty on campus respect nontraditional students. We are treated horribly, and the new interim chancellor has been made aware.
Last semester, my colleague for my class project received the same treatment. I am grateful she spoke up.
We were trolled by our team members who ignored us and waited last minute to pull together our class presentation assignment worth over half of our grade.
They conspired against us and luckily her legacy status gave us the leverage needed to start the “I Will Not Forget” campaign for inclusivity, which was our final project.
She was a member of a sorority. I am a disabled veteran. The university did not listen to my complaints until she spoke up.
We filed a complaint with the dean of students and now I am receiving retaliation. I am being told I am “triggered” and that I am the problem child.
Little do they know; my VA social worker is my line of sight working with me who reviews their rhetoric in my emails.
Today, I am being forced to share my story in class for a work history assignment, which was posted in a previous blog on the website.
I feel compelled to warn all of you who are about to awaken to the reality of the University of Wisconsin transfer system.
I am taking a stance every time I receive a satisfaction survey even though the problem continues to escalate. I am being told I cannot use the Outpost 422 registered trademark for my corporate capstones, which is a mandated reporting blogger transferring confidential concerns to members of Congress.
The university is committing the Machiavellian act of obstruction.
As a veteran, you can rest assured I will pass your situation onto my Congressional delegate I report to as a member of the PREVENTS program.
If you are a nontraditional student considering going back to school, don’t. Do not even entertain the idea. You will be treated like garbage at the University of Wisconsin.
Your professors will grumble and complain when you seek accommodations for your disability. You will be told to take your courses online because integrating with traditional students is inappropriate.
You will be treated second rate. You will not feel welcome.
Outpost 422 is here for you. The website is a mandated reporter. Please fill out the contact form if you are in need of connecting with a third-party social worker. We are working on bringing a chaplain on board too.
For now, you can fill out the contact form and talk to me. I am ordained. Outpost 422 is a student in distress relay team. We care about you.
The show tackles how to escape and evade a toxic situation with someone who is using dark psychology for deceitful reasons.
The introduction provides peer-reviewed research provided on the Facebook page. The confession and absolution reveal the variables from both introspect and retrospect.
The workshop provides a guided tour between multiple social media and podcast platforms for on-air listeners who are stuck marching through the unfamiliar path of ambivalence.
The virtual confessional helps those stuck in trauma bonding and addiction decide if they need help and where to find resources.
Collectively, we pass on the information to those who need it and develop a new form of mandated reporting and a virtual confessional service.
Outpost 422 will continue developing the mandated reporting format over the upcoming weeks sharing a convergent media concept that brand owners can use when conveying ideology to their followers.
Convergent media collaborates all forms of communication between print samples and documentary embedded information found in blog hyperlinks. The reporting for Outpost 422 happens at the Jaded Patriot Press.
The confessional news gathering happens at Hell is Warm on the Homefront, which is a service provided by our Autumn Landmine Productions philanthropy investments firm through our Sacred Warrior Fellowship Inc. 501 c 3 corporate social responsibility storyboarding center at Outpost 422.
We are tackling moral injury and keeping communities safe through the development of the independent study workshops.
As a collective, we overcome impossibility by awakening those stuck in post-military and post-pandemic readjustment quicksand navigate their way out.
The following reflection is the first of the series for the Outpost 422 creative writing workshops.
The project was a class freestyle creative non-fiction writing assignment for Madison College where Outpost 422 launched.
Now, the Outpost 422 readjustment research project is teaming up with Phi Theta Kappa assisting those dealing with pandemic readjustment.
The next phase of the Outpost 422 journey seeks organizing a mobile empowerment outreach and writer’s club through the help of the honors society.
The Jaded Patriot Reflection: Democracy dies when veterans neglect their Constitutional advocacy
As a member and witness of the disabled veteran community, I view at Outpost 422 the horror on the horizon quickly overrunning America.
What I see is fear and loathing amongst veterans turning on one another through a divide and conquer mentality competing over VA treatment. The VA refugees have evolved from drifters to a jaded patriot community.
Their egomania has them lost at sea in the system of VA bureaucracy.
The Veterans Administration has programmed Post 9/11 veterans believing they are the industrious breed.
Those who did not serve in the opioid cash crop wars are now becoming lost in the trenches of the home front hell of untreated PTSD. The War on Terror was the mask of sophistry orchestrated by the Bush Administration.
Dick Cheney’s Haliburton, the first corporate citizen, sent our warriors through the gauntlet of experimentation carried out by VA case studies. Hydrocodone nearly killed me.
For two years, I lived in the sea of zombification, while Post 9/11 servicemembers fought for “freedom” harvesting poppy for pain management. Now they shun all of us from the Somalia War era and our need for readjustment treatment.
I waited for two decades for the VA to concede I had post-war trauma telling me the Post 9/11 regime took priority and denied me a chance to recover. My jaded patriot view stems from civilian readjustment outlined in my reflection.
Challenging Stuck Points: 10:12 a.m. Sunday September 25, 2022, Madison, Wis.—I sit here pondering writing what words to say in today’s self-reflection diary. The college dream turned out to be a horror movie. The professors and Greek society push veterans out of the classroom at the university. The community college greets us with unity and diversity.
Why can’t the university see past their fallacy? We live in a world where the college classroom is half empty. What happens when you speak up? You become a liability. The non-essential platform of the second tiered student, ran by the prudent, dictated by the warlocks and witches of the eccentrics, want the jaded patriots on campus to stand down and cower.
We are your tower at Outpost 422. We are watching out for you like guardian angels covered in armor. We are the sentinels standing up for the Constitution. We are hellbent to end the socialist media pollution riddling our children with perversion.
Aversion, commonly practiced by the next generation, groomed by Mark Zuckerberg’s disinformation. Why can’t we as a nation find unity? I see no comfort in oppression. The people of starvation being cleaned out by Joe Biden and his dereliction.
Community standards took away our rights and now we war and fight like programmed idiots turning down the opportunity for equal rights by endorsing conflict race theory. Oppression does not end oppression. Only tyranny wages war. We are in the maze of colonization. The jaded patriots will awaken the nation with truth and fidelity.
Fear and loathing as a pandemic refugee during Gonzo-19
The dishonesty of the Veterans of Foreign Wars robs me of my right to speak up. They continue to disenfranchise my platform. They challenge you and their community to endorse their fraud requesting money for programs like the Wounded Warrior Project who proselytize their cause.
What about those who deal with readjustment PTSD and those who cannot use the VA? Surely there must be a way out of trauma bonding from tyrants who gaslight their enlisted like what happened to me by First Sergeant Raymond Salinas of the 10th Mountain Division. He rode me every day and turned the world against me.
He is responsible for my success. What about yours? Who is your driver/oppressor? We all have one. That’s where we meet in unity as pandemic refugees.
The jaded patriot diary reflection projects the jaded patriot vision of what life looks like as a non-essential member of post-secondary education. May we as a nation reflect upon where we are headed next.
The jaded patriots ride their laptops in the classroom uploading their intellectual property into the Oracle data scraping search engine. The algorithm feasts on creativity sucking the life out of those who were once free from the tyranny of the oligarchs. Art is their only reprieve.
The Constitution bled dry by community standards by a peeping Tom who attended Harvard. Now he holds the cards believing he is God and that humans are his corporate commodity.
We are all bound by the algorithm and corporations tote their agenda through social responsibility rewards programs we think are saving us money. Our time and talent converted into binary code. The time for unity is now.
The awakening is upon us. Stand tall and be the American you are capable of being. Looking back on the Sunday reflection, I realize those who were once my friends are now my enemies.
Their jaded patriotism and view towards me as a disabled veteran slap my face and feel the grimace of disgrace watching their news feed. The algorithm is the plague destroying humanity. The slap is a wakeup call we need unity now more than ever.
For corporate communication 327 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, we were tasked with describing our various jobs over the last decade. My primary job is calling out oppressors at Outpost 422, which was a service my employer did not provide.
I have spent the last decade developing an unbiased mandated reporting agency that doubles as a class project diary profiling the life of a disabled veteran dealing with the experience of campaign discrimination by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of Wisconsin, and the abuse handed down through ranking union members on the shop floor, which started out with being bullied by my union for needing time off for therapy.
The first job I had was the role of being a labor pool employee not knowing what schedule or machine I would work on during the following week.
We were forced overtime and dealt with the Veterans Administration continuously denying my requests for entry into the Vocational Rehabilitation Program. Albert Hess, my gatekeeper working for the VA, would not allow me a fully funded post-secondary education opportunity.
He denied my requests from 1998 to 2018.
I was forced to work in the paper industry by Judge Lisa Beth Vandermaazen of Outagamie County, whose misanthropic prejudice while wearing pajamas under her robe, led me into a maze I could not escape.
Her court order enforcement came from her examination of the previous two years of my life unemployed as a bricklayer. I was elated I finally found a job.
The swing shift atmosphere was the crucible of the experience. I was a hard worker and worked a lot, which landed me a job after the final review from the company’s 90-day probation.
The union left me alone until I needed to take care of my mental health and family. The judge’s dismissal of my child’s mother’s abandonment left me prey to losing my job.
I became a liability the union needed to dispose of.
The class report offers insight regarding the toxic union hall environment I witnessed as the veterans committee representative.
From 2011 to 2014, I was dedicated. Once we moved to 12-hour swing shift, my health began to slip away and needed help.
That’s when everything faded away. Not all of my work experience was bad.
The company helped me recover from my post-military trauma and readjustment obstacles. They provided me a stable job and plenty of work.
The greatest success between company and union was our collaboration with creating a safe workplace and building a veterans council for new hires and employees dealing with untreated trauma from military service.
Little did I know at the time, I was one of those employees. I left the job in 2017 for treatment after referral from the employee assistance program and have been an advocate for corporations since.
Corporations deal with cultish behavior and nepotism by unions, who have zero say on what happens at the union hall, which carries weight on the shop floor the next day at work.
Upon dealing with gaslighting in the workplace being a veteran needing time off from work, the most common remark came in the form of a microaggression stating, “You didn’t fight Post 9/11. You don’t deserve time off. Quit playing games and get to work or you will regret being born.”
The following work history report provides details regarding my transition and readjustment from working in the field to transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater I am currently attending.
As a consortium student attending Madison College and UW Whitewater simultaneously, I have created a website for viewers and the opportunity to relay harassment and intimidation to mandated reporters, who help those stuck in a toxic environment survive what happened both myself and Tom Monfils.
Over the last 10 years, the same occurrence continues to happen and learned my disability triggers narcissists and their appraisal. I have learned to channel what they say as fear and motivate through the words as my drivers for success.
Backlash and recovery have been my primary job throughout my civilian readjustment. I have an intimidating aura. Being an eyewitness to groupthink abuse has developed my registered trademark called “Outpost 422,” which is your first line of defense through the contact feature on the website and provide a contact form in the blogs.
Outpost 422 reports Makavelian behavior through blogs and how to avoid getting wrapped up with cultish behavior by recognizing the behavior and turning abuse into success.
The next phase of my career is the development of workshop mandated reporting. The workshop and workplace awareness service awakens employees of their rights, offers legal documents outlining when the employee should go outside the workplace and report above the head of human resources and opens avenues of escape through communication relay to mandated reporters.
As an advocate who understands the symbolic protest of the number 22, we who have attempted suicide in the workplace make a statement there is a problem and call the media to attention, which landed me in treatment and forced me to find another career.
From 2012 to 2022, the hostile experiences working in both the paper industry and university learning environment have proven the truth abusive people are relentless. Outpost 422 provides cover and shelter during the storm.
The exchanges between management as a union member were professional. Dealing with the inept with no background in management felt daunting.
Managers worked with what they could and have a deep respect for their plight.
Imagine someone with a sixth-grade education running a paper machine trying to comprehend the concepts of mutual respect. The senior ranking union employee decided what workers received preferential treatment like pets in a pet store.
The union regulated between two tiers. A nepotistic first tier and the lower class second tier, which I was assigned and given the name “Jethro,” insinuating I was a free loader.
The workplace was a prison yard, and the union condoned the behavior. Tom Monfils spoke up just like me. The only difference? I knew my time was up and needed to escape.
Outpost 422 became my strategy through entrepreneurship courses fixing the potholes of having to use employee assistance programs and the role companies play.
Unions corroborate and conspire at union halls. Their methods undermine the good of the people. As the next phase of the story unfolds, imagine fighting for each paycheck and surviving on little hope.
The United Steel Workers preys on veterans dealing with readjustment and have someone standing up to them for the interest of fairness that companies, not unions, provide the tools for disabled veteran readjustment success.
Outpost 422 is my Veterans Crisis Line story and a workshop teaching those stuck in trauma how to avert and escape with minimal damage. The system does not protect those who blow the whistle.
