The nation is replete with World War II memorials, in small towns and big cities, including the newest one in our nation's capital.
Among the holdings are the World War II Official Military Personnel Files (OMPFs) of former Presidents George H.W.
Each year, NPRC's staff of about 600 respond to more than 2 million requests for information, copies of documents, or the return of files to the agencies that created them or to other trusted users. About 100 employees work in the civilian facility, overlooking the Mississippi River near downtown St.
Besides the OPFs and health-related records, the building also stores records for the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Treasury Department. Recent OPFs contain only documentation of official activities during one's civilian employment, such as position descriptions, promotions, training, and pay adjustments—information more likely of interest to the agency where the person worked and only sometimes to the former employee or that person's family.
Older files contain colorful descriptions of a wide range of government service ranging from Indian agents from the Old West to employees of the Lifesaving and Lighthouse Service.
The military records building, a five-story building about 10 miles northwest of downtown St. The OMPFs hold the stories of millions of individuals who defended our nation throughout the many wars of the 20th century. NPRC has complete OMPFs for more than 34 million veterans, plus several million more partial files and supplemental records regarding individual military service. A fire on July 12, 1973, left the top floor of the military personnel records facility in ruins. Since 1973, NPRC has obtained alternative sources of documents to verify the dates of individual military service and the character of separation for many of the veterans whose files were destroyed. NPRC reconstructs a file only after receiving a request involving that veteran, and even then, replacement of an entire folder is impossible for these one-of-a-kind documents. With only limited exceptions, veterans (or next of kin of deceased veterans) may obtain information or copies of all documents from their own service or health record.
Within the guidelines of applicable laws and regulations, limited information is provided to others who can sufficiently identify the record sought. Veterans, or next of kin if the veteran is deceased, are encouraged to use eVetRecs to submit record inquiries via the Internet.
NPRC has no electronic military personnel records yet, and contrary to reports last year, the agency has no plans to destroy the paper records that it currently stores. Of the 4,000 requests per day, more than 40 percent ask for only a copy of the separation document, the DD Form 214, or its predecessor forms. NPRC provides certified copies of separation documents within 10 workdays 75 percent of the time. Over the past five years, NPRC's work processes have evolved from the flow of papers to the flow of electrons, and the improvement in service to veterans has been dramatic. With our new Case Management and Reporting System (CMRS), written inquiries no longer have to be sorted and carried to several places within the building before reaching the person who will prepare the response. The designated technician reviews the request and prepares the personalized reply along with the document copies. Sophisticated case management and a workforce motivated to provide the best possible service are trademarks of NPRC's commitment not only to those who have served, but also to those who want to study their service. Norman Eisenberg is a management analyst at the National Personnel Records Center, where he has worked since 1977.

Where To Find Free CNA ClassesSend to KindleBecoming a Certified Nursing Assistant can be an expensive process for some, and for that reason, free CNA classes are extremely popular. For the most part, free CNA classes cover the same curriculum that you’ll find when taking a paid course. Free CNA classes are a valuable resource and can help the people who qualify to enroll in them when the time comes to take the CNA exam.
Review the differences and similarities between home health aides and certified nursing assistants, and find out why these are two of the fastest-growing professions in healthcare.
Certified nursing assistants are healthcare professionals that help keep hospitals and nursing homes running smoothly and efficiently. If you’re wondering how to become a CNA, there are just a few steps you need to get started.
How Herbalists can Integrate with Integrity - Herbalists are one of the last health care modalities that remains unlicensed. Plant Walk -On this walk we would meet local plants and discuss the importance of botanical characteristics (an examination of their individual parts), the plantsa€™ relationships with other plants, ethical and practical ways of wildcrafting species we see, plants from other areas that have similar uses, and real-life clinical applications.
GI Tract Protocol - The GI tract protocol can be used for normalizing varied types of chronic digestive problems. Hispanic Herbalism - The Hispanic healing traditions of California, incorporating the herbal use of other cultures within the Latino experience. Guerilla Herbalism - Street herbalism through helping the homeless, impoverished, and under insured, often under dangerous conditions. Giving Back - Rosemary Gladstar, renowned herbalist and founder of United Plant Savers, talks at length about the importance of giving back to the natural world that provides the plants we use for medicine, and that imparts the wisdom needed now more than ever in these trying times. An Ecology of Healing: Health as Wholeness and Balance - Taught by Kiva Rose and Jesse Wolf Hardin, this class will be an in-depth exploration of healing as the bodya€™s natural effort to be whole and in balance. Foundational Herbcraft & Talking With Plants (with Kiva Rose) - A common sense look at how plants speak to use through our senses, and what theya€™re communicating. Foundational Herbcraft & Talking With Plants (with Jim McDonald) - A common sense look at how plants speak to use through our senses, and what theya€™re communicating.

Herbs for the Muscular & Skeletal Systems - Herbal treatment of locomotor injuries, problems of aging, arthritis, gout, lyme disease and more. I am so excited to be registered for the following course and thought I would share the information with readers.
Join Herbalist, Nutritionist, and food lover, Darcey Blue French of Brighid’s Well Herbs for a 6 week online intensive course on the energetics of food, true nourishment, nutrition, relationship with place and food, nutritional healing and more. May 3, 2010 - June 21, 2010*Learn about the ways traditional healing systems such as Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine see food energetics, and use food as healing tools on a day to day basis.
Darcey Blue French is an herbalist and food lover, who has over the years explored various ways of eating, interacting with food and preparing food. Due to the fact that I am working on my last three weeks of the semester while my husband is on a business trip,A  I have decided to re-post articles worthy of being passed along. For those who are not familiar with the name,A  Paul Bergner is the director of the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Colorado whichA  offers introductory, advanced, and clinical training in medical herbalism and clinical nutrition in the vitalist tradition. For those interested in more information,A  please check out the websites above you will find a wealth of information. The process for making HFCS is to chemically strip the sugars off of the starch in corn, freeing them up.A The process of making of agave nectar is similar (this is not agave sap), but the sugars are chemically stripped off of inulin starch, inulin being a fructo-oligosaccharide, having fructose as the dominant sugar in the chain, so the agave nectar might be 80-90% free fructose instead of 55% like the HFCS in soft drinks. I like to think that my childhood was unique but honestly there are a great number of folk out there who grew up in a very similar manner to me. There is a point to all of this.A  Herbalism is newer to me than the natural family living. I honestly am not sure of the answers but I thought I would throw the question out there as it is rumbling around in the back of my brain.A  What have you been thinking about today?
Nutrition plays a vital role in a healthy nervous system but before you even think about what foods to eat, you should look at your eating patterns.A A  Are you skipping meals while taking in large amounts of stimulants or sugars? B Vitamins are also important to a healthy nervous system but it is important to note that there is too much of a good thing.A  Taking large doses of B vitamins (specifically B12)A  can lead to anxiety attacks and panic disorders.


As I examined the packets, I continued to like what I was reading and is there ever there a lot to read.A  These might be the most informative seed packets I have ever run across!
All-in-all it seems like a good company and I plan on spending a good share of my gardening budget at their website. A lot of herbalists talk of using herbal infusions to support your body during and illness or perhaps as an alternative to a nutritional supplement in the form of a nourishing infusion. They are quite useful; I have been making herbal preparations, for years now,A  with good results.
You don’t hear many of them mentioningA  spaghetti sauce as an decoction although the acidic base of tomato sauce is wonderful for drawing minerals out of foods. Keep in mind I am not talking about the watered-down, additive-laden prepared foodstuff you buy at the the megamarket.A A  I am talking of preparations you make yourself. I don’t remember exactly when it occurred to me that soups and broths are really just giant pots of herbal goodness. I realized that I don’t know that I ever have put our spaghetti sauce recipe on the blog, so I though I would use it here as an example of the herb to food ratio that is health-producing.
Beverages don’t have to be the boring preparations many people think of as medicinal infusions, either. There is an added benefit of incorporating these beverages into your daily diet.A  I have experimented with many different ways to get little ones to eat their herbs.
I also dona€™t like using them from a sustainability standpoint.A  I dona€™t want my well-being to be dependent on any industry and it would be rather hypocritical of me to talk a good game about local sustainable food systems when half my nutrients are arriving on a boat from China. For the next couple of weeks, I am going to post about different ways eating and cooking with herbs can help to improve your health. But there is just one place that contains personal military information about nearly every American who served in that conflict, as well as those who served at other times during the 20th century: the National Archives and Records Administration's National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Most of these records are owned by the military services and the Office of Personnel Management and managed under their rules and regulations. However, information from these records is primarily for official use by government agencies. Louis, where 500 NPRC staffers work, is a very busy place because of the active nature of military service records. Louis became home to military personnel files after the millions of records created during World War II strained army and navy records storage facilities on the East Coast. They contain such documents as enlistment contracts, duty locations, performance evaluations, award citations, training records, and the especially important Report of Separation (DD Form 214 or earlier equivalent). Most folders that were retired to the Center before the early 1990s also include records of routine physical exams and outpatient medical and dental treatment. Among these are final pay records, enlistment registers from induction stations, an index of World War II service numbers and dates they were assigned, morning reports, unit rosters, and discharge orders. This method helps to expedite the response for those who most often need to verify military service quickly to prove eligibility for benefits.
Packed with important information such as dates and character of service, final rank, awards earned, and military occupation specialty, the separation document is a key to veterans benefits such as home loans, civil service appointments, education, training, and medical care. Other popular requests are to obtain copies of health records, replacement or newly authorized service medals, records of one's own (or a family member's) military service, and verification for entitlement for burial in a national cemetery. Now, NPRC scans each request and keys in pertinent data such as name, service number, branch of service, type of request, and return address. These forms tell where to find each relevant OMPF and the technician to whom the file should be delivered. Programs provided by technical colleges and other institutions can cost thousands of dollars and, in a tough economy, many people don’t have that kind of cash lying around. Since these month-long courses are generally made-up of 8 hour-a-day classes, however, they tend to be much more intense and demanding than conventional alternatives. It is possible for students who are already enrolled in an accredited certified nursing assistant program to complete some of their units online for no additional cost, but this is obviously not the same thing as taking all of their classes for free. Take care not to skip out on any parts and you’ll be a certified nursing assistant in no time.
Using your powers of concentration, visualize a white light flowing from the palms of your hands and from your heart center, which is situated just in front of your breastbone.
When you start to feel this power flowing in you, then say out loud the girls’ names.
This will be a combination storytelling class as well as practicalities of gathering plants. This will lead into Skullcap’s specific indications and contra-indications illustrated with colorful case histories, as well as the ecology and specifics of a number of western Scutellaria spp. Many clients have compromised GI tracts from a fast food vegan or other extended elimination diets, protein deficiencies, or multiple nutritional deficiencies.
California Hispanic herbalism differs from the Mexican or Tejano, or Southwest traditions due to the various native and foreign cultures which helped form it. Special focus will be placed on of the body as a dynamic ecosystem instead of a battlefield. Jim and Kiva will explore the underlying elements of traditional western herbalism, including sense-based herbal energetics, primary herbal actions and ways of integrating these essential components into an effective healing practice.
Join Jim McDonald in an exploration of the fundamental role of diaphoretics in immunity, and how they can be used to support and enhance the body’s vital response to infections from influenza to the common cold. Although Mercola is a little distasteful in his sensationalism, what he says in this case is true. Even though digestion of the disaccharide to the monosaccharides take some time and acts as a partial brake, because the extracted sugar is very concentrated, compared to eating a naturally sugary food, the glucose and fructose surge in the system. A  So it is with a little bit of bemusement that I watch the latest explosion of the back-to-the land movement because I really never left it. A A  I giggle when we make homemade macaroni & cheese to take someplace and it is viewed as some sort of accomplishment because in my family that is pretty standard fare.
A  IA  suppose I started the path about fifteen years ago although I have only been studying seriously about six years (around the same time I started blogging). A  How do we keep the message of the websites of today from being lost in a internet archive in the same way the poster above was lost in a file cabinet?
Bring to a boil; then lower heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the broth is thick.
A  I thought I might offer a bit of advice as to how to eat your way to a healthier nervous system. The fun doesn’t stop on the outside though, so be quite careful when opening your first Botanical Interests seed packet.
A  My Trionfo Violetto Pole Beans outgrew and outproduced my Kentucky Wonder Beans.A A  I think my Dwarf Blue KaleA  might still be alive out there under the piles of snow. You also don’t hear hot sauceA  tossed around as an herbal preparation but these are both excellent examples of ways you can incorporate more herbs into your diet.
A A  It was probablyA  have been shortly after Darian became a vegetarian and I made my first batch of homemade vegetable broth.A  I know I definitely had a handle on it by the time I was making garlic broth to use in soups. While I am sure that in cases where a blood test has shown there to be a deficiency, supplements can be useful to catch the body up.A A  I prefer to avoid the deficiency in the first place. A This is one of the reasons that I tend to focus on using herbs and foods that I can grow or wild-craft in my area.
A When you dona€™t eat properly, your body does not find the nutrition in the food you eat, it will find the nutrients someplace in your body such as your bones, muscles or brain matter.A  A This is especially true of protein which your body will leach from your muscles or brain matter and vitamins and calcium which your body will take from your bones. The Official Personnel Folders (OPFs) stored there pertain to most federal civilian employees dating back to the mid-19th century. In 1950 the Pentagon decided to consolidate all personnel and health records of former service members in St.


OMPFs reside in hundreds of thousands of cubic-foot cardboard boxes on 11-foot-high shelves in immense storage areas.
Many state and federal agencies, particularly the Department of Veterans Affairs, assist NPRC in the reconstruction effort. NPRC has provided several million reconstruction replies since the fire, but as the number of living veterans from the affected years declines, so has the volume of requests.
An eVetRecs user must print a signature form, sign and date it, and either fax or mail it to NPRC to activate the request so that their right-to-access can be verified.
Cases more complex than simply copying a separation document now typically are worked in about five weeks, although the goal for all requests is 10 working days.
CMRS automatically assigns the request to a technician, and the scanned images are displayed on that technician's computer screen. The Center thus retains electronic images pertaining to each case, while collecting summary data about the nature of requests, individual and unit work volumes, and timeliness of replies.
Navy officer, he has provided articles and photographs about NPRC for various NARA publications over the years. Thanks to the Red Cross and several other organizations, however, it is possible to receive free professional training at select locations. Like classes offered through other accredited institutions, courses provided through the American Red Cross and other similar organizations consist of both classroom and lab hours. So long as you commit yourself completely to the learning all of the material offered, you’ll find that free CNA classes are every bit as effective at helping you launch your career as their paid counterparts.

This class explores some of our options as herbalists to bring our unique set of skills and medicines to a wider audience. Symptom pictures range from full-blown chronic fatigue symptoms to multiple food sensitivities and brain fog. Included are foundational elements of working with the whole person and the whole plant rather than isolating or compartmentalizing either human or herb. Special attention will be paid to the differentiation and use of diaphoretics that stimulate, relax or do both at once. The four pillars of evaluation and treatment - 1) energetics, 2) organ systems, 3) action and 4) specific indications.
In nature typically in a piece of fruit, the sugar is a mixture of sucrose (glucose bound to fructose), free glucose, and free fructose.
The glucose enters the controlled glycolysis pathway, but the fructose bypasses it, and floods the Krebs cycle and the related fat-building pathway in large amounts, symbolically like a -flood- into those pathways below the control point in glycolysis.
A  You need to eat enough to provide your body with the foods you need.A  It is almost impossible to do this with two meals a day so your body begins to crave foods that will give it that quick energy fix.
There is nothing quite so satisfying as a healing soup simmering away slowly on the stovetop, while the flavors and properties of the herbs flow gently into the food. A Dona€™t fight with yourself (or your family) to entirely give up a questionable food substance, just dona€™t abuse your body with it and use the healthiest form of the substance possible. A A vast majority of health complaints in this country; fatigue, mental fogginess, depression, etca€¦ are caused by your bodies natural response to incomplete nutrition.
Louis, one for former members of the military, and one for former members of the civil service. It holds all the master microfiche of Official Military Personnel Folders created since the mid-1970s.
Other OMPFs eventually will be accessioned approximately 62 years after the individual's military service concluded. It must be noted, however, that free courses do not qualify their graduates to sit for the certification exam.
It will draw heavily from my 5 years working at a mixed modality (conventional and holistic) free clinic in my hometown as well as other places I have volunteered. Humans have no natural mechanism to deal with this, so the liver does 3 things, start making a lot of of fat and, if chronic, increasing the enzymes that manufacture fat, reduce the production of ATP via the Krebs cycle, and become resistant to the effects of insulin which would otherwise tell the liver to stop releasing glucose into the system.
A A  EvenA  though that changed a bit when my parents moved us to town, my family hung on to a great deal of that lifestyle. Unfortunately in our society,A  candy bars and coffee are far more available than a leafy green salad or a whole-grain snack.A  You have to plan a bit more to provide yourself with healthy alternative but it is completely worth the effort.
Each facility holds about 2 million cubic feet of records, nearly all of them personnel-related. At the time of the fire, one-third of the air force records already had been relocated and thus saved, but overall, fewer than 4 million records were recovered, either entirely or with as little as one identifiable document.
They simply provide an opportunity for individuals to become exposed to the material first before deciding to pursue certification.
A large piece of this class will be devoted to answering attendeea€™s practical questions about their personal situations and how they can bring their skills forward.
If we would fill our bellies with fruit we would still only get a relatively small amount of free fructose.
Current scientific A thinking on the adverse metabolic effects of sugar, the cluster of diseases that appear when the sugar trade emerges in a region, is that the overfeeding of the fructose pathway and the resulting consequences are responsible for the insulin resistance and obesity.
Most of it seems much like sucrose, 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose, not all that different.
A  Once you address your eating patterns, you can begin to look at the nutrients your body needs to properly support your nervous system. Bee pollen is an amazing nutrient which I should devote a whole blog entry to, but I do worry about our dwindling bee population and the availability of this nutrient.A A  Consequently,A  I use it sparingly and with a great deal of respect for the creatures who created it in mind. About 25 percent of the holdings in each building are medical records of active duty military personnel, their dependents, and retirees, from military hospitals and clinics since 1943.
These famous figures are just a few of the more than 34 million Americans whose military files are in NPRC's care. A subsequent renovation included frequent firewalls within the storage areas as well as a comprehensive sprinkler system. If we digest starch that has fructose in the chain of sugars in the starch, that is really slow. The problem is that in HFCS, the fructose is -free- it does not have to be split from sucrose, and is not bound to fiber. The result is that in the Krebs Cycle, the entrance of glucose into the cycle is highly regulated by enzymes, when ATP is adequate to high, if forms a brake on the glycolysis pathway, but fructose, on the one hand, enters the cycle one step below the control point. Four years later, the Pentagon reassigned management of these records to the National Archives and Records Service (NARS), within the General Services Administration. Historically, anthropologically, evolutionarily, we didn’t need to evolve a control on the fructose metabolic pathway.
A few years ago, the lead article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proposed the introduction of unbound liquid fructose into the food supply as -the- cause of the epidemic of obesity and diabetes that began to manifest around 1980 and continues to expand today.A Free liquid fructose appears to be benign or even beneficial because there is no spike of glucose, or even of insulin after ingesting it. If the natural pathway for glycolysis is like water rushing down a white water canyon, with a dam at the bottom to prevent flooding, the natural fructose pathway is like a small stream that enters -below- the dam with no control on it.
There is instead a spike of fat in the form of triglycerides, but no one notices that (only fasting TG are even measured in routine lab tests).
And as the liver adapts to habitual use of sugar or fructose, -then- insulin resistance is increased and insulin and glucose rise to higher levels than before and the individual becomes pre- or full blown diabetic.
