OFFE Veterans' Newsletter
A Welcome Message from the Editor, Francisco Juarez
This photograph, taken by OFFE Newsletter Editor, Francisco Juarez, is of a statue inside the White House. The words (right) are within the closing remarks of President Abraham Lincoln's 2nd Inaugural Address, 1865.
This photograph of the bust of President Abraham Lincoln
and his accompanying declaration of sacred trust, together, best represent
the introduction and purpose of the Newsletter Page of the official Operation
Firing For Effect (OFFE) website.
My thanks go to the OFFE leadership for its vote of confidence. Our advocacy is certainly cut out for us and we must begin to get the word out, immediately.
To that end, please allow me to introduce "your" new Editor. I am Francisco and I have been writing for Veterans since college in 1977.
My wife and I met Gene Simes in 2008 at Washington D.C. and I have supported the direction of Operation Firing For Effect (OFFE), a New York based Veterans advocacy non-profit organization, ever since.
OFFE is working hard to prevent the dismantling of the entire VA system, and, the unraveling of our social fabric.
OFFE has been calling for public attention to the "cloak and dagger" shenanigans that really do exist, today, within the governance of our Veterans Affairs Department.
