I hate to say this, but try going to the local media, they may pounce on the chance for a story, if your benefits are important to you. I know most of the "major" stations dig "flulff" stories because they can run them on a slow day AND look like they have a point to existing.

I'm gonna have to tighten my belt a little more, my bennies are cut again too. Woke up this morning looking forward to that $1K that was supposed to be sitting in my account so I could go pay the rent... and found $750.

I don't know I feel kind of guilty when I have friends that are alot worse off than I am. I might push it when I cannot get around anymore.

In 1ST CAV call it the fiddlers green

The Cavalrymen's Poem

Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers' Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddlers' Green.

Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers' Green.

And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a saber keen,
Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean,
And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddlers' Green.
