It is my sad duty to report to all Patriots of the Chapter that Patriot James N. Trapp passed away on July 8, 2015. Patriot Trapp, a two time recipient of the Purple Heart Medal, long suffered from residual physical and mental health issues resulting from his wounds. Below is the obituary from The Sierra Vista Herald, August 13, 2015:

James Neil Trapp, 53, of Sierra Vista, Ariz., departed this world on July 8, 2015. James was a medically retired veteran of the Arizona Army National Guard and served in Iraq. James was the recipient of two Purple Hearts. James is now free from the pain and suffering he endured since returning from combat. A memorial for James will be held at Southern Arizona Veterans' Memorial Cemetery chapel on Saturday, Aug 22, 2015, at 10 a.m

May he rest in peace.

Posted 13 July 2015.

Patriots,

Our sponsor for Top Gun 7, Apocalypse Arms (formerly known as the MI Store) will be having their Grand Re-Opening this coming Saturday the 18th of July. Due to a last minute change of plans, I will not be present this day - I will be out of State. Our Chapter Senior Vice Commander will also be absent.

The event hours are 0800 (set up - event begins at 0900) until complete, most likely approximately 1400-1500.

We are seeking volunteers to help set up and man the booth from 0800 - 1100, and from 1100 - UTC.

Also need a volunteer to link up with me to pick up the booth supplies (canopy, tables, etc.). As I cannot be present this day, I will leave the decision of running a simultaneous Viola fund raiser to those Patriots who are able to assist.

Yours in Patriotism,

Patriots,

Tonight [17 January 2015] at our Chapter's Annual Membership Appreciation Dinner our Chapter Commander, James "Eddie" Weathers, was presented the Patriot of the Year Award.

Eddie received the award due to his many accomplishments this year. He spearheaded many projects which helped local Veterans. Whether it was helping homeless Vets, providing aid to Veterans in Hospice care or bridging the divide between Veterans and Civilians. On top of all that he was able to execute the plan to make Sierra Vista the second city in Arizona to become a Purple Heart City.

Eddie is a true American Patriot and he sets an exemplary standard for other Chapter Members to emulate. He does so not through his words but through his deeds.

Crongratulations Eddie!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 28, 2014
A MESSAGE TO VETERANS FROM THE SECRETARY OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

"I respect the independent review and recommendations of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) regarding systemic issues with patient scheduling and access. I have reviewed the interim report, and the findings are reprehensible to me, to this Department, and to Veterans. I am directing that the Phoenix VAHCS immediately triage each of the 1700 Veterans identified by the IG to bring them timely care. I have already placed the Phoenix VAHCS leadership on administrative leave, and have directed an independent site team to assess scheduling and administrative practices at the Phoenix VAHCS. This team began their work in April, and we are already taking action on multiple recommendations from this report.

We will aggressively and fully implement the remaining IG recommendations to ensure that we contact every single Veteran identified by the IG. I have directed VHA to complete a nation-wide access review to ensure a full understanding of VA's policy and continued integrity in managing patient access to care. Further, we are accelerating access to care throughout our system and in communities where Veterans reside.

It is important to allow OIG's independent and objective review to proceed until completion. OIG has requested that VA take no additional personnel actions in Phoenix until their review is complete."
