Introduction to my Veterans Career House

Veterans Career House of Biddeford, Maine

It is SEADOG's intention that this residence will become the pilot model for more facilities like this one throughout the great state of Maine, maybe even throughout our great nation.


482 West Street, Biddeford, Maine 04005
207 - 286 - 9541

In 2005 I was hurt working, I was contracted by the company I was working for to another to rebuild the largest American Crawler Built and operated by a scrap metal group in New York. When I got hurt everyone started the shuffle. No worries, I'm a Veteran. And so begin my struggle to get help. About mid way through 2009, several friends gathered their funds and sent me here to the state of Maine. Homeless, in the freezing weather living by my wits, I was finally able to become accepted to this facility.

An organization know here as CHOM ( Community Housing of Maine ), got together with the VA ( Veterans Administration ) and bought this facility. It has been here since 2006, little known and mostly forgotten. Many Veterans have passed through these doors, many to new homes and productive jobs.

Some of us here, wondered, what if there were more of these facilities throughout the state. What if there was one in every county in this state. That would be sixteen total. How many Homeless Veterans would be able to have a warm, secure place to rebuild their lives.

Thoughts, comments and opinions anyone.

Here is what we think may work !

GOD bless everyone ! May you and yours be healthy, wealthy and wise.

If you don't shout to the world, you deserve what you get, NOTHING !!!

Here in fayetteville, NC we are billed as the nations only Soldier sanctuary, and there is a shelter being built to accomodate homeless vets. I think it will accompdate 23 vets and they can stay up to two years, if I remember correctly.

Hi Mark, here is some timely info, at least I hope so.
What are the Presumptions within VA associated with Agent Orange?

The Presumption of Exposure. VA concedes that any veteran who set foot on the ground - the so called "Boots on the Ground" rule - has been exposed to the chemical herbicide Agent Orange between the dates of January 9, 1962, and ending on May 7, 1975. The presumption of exposure relieves the veteran of the need to provide direct proof of being exposed to Agent Orange. Simply having boots on the ground during the affected period is enough for VA to concede exposure.

Recently, VA has liberalized the means of proving exposure for Navy veterans. For a long time there has been debate as to whether or not "Blue Water" Navy veterans should qualify for exposure. The American Legion has a resolution stating that the presumption of exposure should apply to Navy veterans who served on ships located in the territorial waters of Vietnam. more....

Christian, that man has got me by the scroff of my neck, and is kicking open doors I could never dream of entering.

All I said to him ways, " I am your tool ! Use me. " He called my bluff ?

God bless you Mark, through you the Lords will is being done. If we listen with our hearts and quiet our minds we will see where the good Lord is leading us. Surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ and the rest will take care of its self through Gods will.
Amen !!!

I am honored to become a member of this group, and as a Vet, appreciate all my brothers and sisters out there, now many much younger than I, who have the job now to carry on. God bless each and everyone of you, and thank you for your service. And Ronald, you are right about the intent to redistribute the wealth, and little time left to ensure that is limited as much as possible. Nov will not get here fast enough for me, I can not wait to cast my vote. Milt
