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.


SEADOG's New HOUSE

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 ?

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

it is always an honor to be asked to join a new group. after hearing some of what is in the new health bill now the law of the land.it is so bad for every age group , there are not enough words to warn all of us,we need to overturn it at all costs the bill is not about health. it is about power and redistribution of wealth.and the end of the dream our founders had for us.it is time to step up our action to stop this.

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
