The Women Beyond the Uniform

Florida America Legion Auxiliary


Ms. Veteran America Celebrates 10 Years on October 10th in Orlando

Ms. Veteran America is not just one person – it’s a movement: a fierce group of women veterans fighting for their sisters in arms.”

— Maj. Jas Boothe, Founder, Final Salute, Inc.

ORLANDO, FL, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Woman Beyond The Uniform: The perfect tagline to describe each Ms. Veteran America contestant and title holder. Why? Because each female service member is more than the uniform – they’re wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, advocates, and everything in between. Their mission is to advocate for homeless women veterans and their children. Why? Because on any given day there is an estimated 55,000 homeless women veterans in the United States, which is the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. And, who better to advocate for homeless women veterans than a fellow comrade?

Since 2012, Ms. Veteran America has provided a voice to homeless women veterans, and this movement has assisted over 7,000 women veterans with finding suitable housing, provided over 15,000 days of transitional housing, and raised over $655,000 to support the mission.

Final Salute Inc. in partnership with the Florida America Legion Auxiliary present the 2021 Ms. Veteran America competition on Sunday, October 10th at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, FL. All previous title holders will be in attendance, along with finalists from 2020 and 2021, military dignitaries, and community advocates. Ladies Night, held on Saturday, October 9th, is an evening to recognize the great work these women have done in their communities over the past year and the evening is sponsored by longtime supporter, CACI.

“Ms. Veteran America is not just one person – it’s a movement: a fierce group of women veterans fighting for their sisters in arms. With the help of our supporters, we have impacted many lives over the past decade, but there is still much work to be done. We’re not finished until every woman veteran and her child has a safe home,” states Maj. Jas Boothe, Founder, Ms. Veteran America and Final Salute Inc.

Maj. Jas Boothe (CNN Hero and Oprah Winfrey Standing Ovation Recipient) is the founder of Ms. Veteran America and Final Salute, Inc. She was prompted to start Final Salute, Inc. and bring attention to the fastest growing segment of the homeless demographic in America, women veterans, when she was made aware that no other resources existed for them and their children. Jas was homeless during 2005-2006, due to Hurricane Katrina and her battle with head, throat and neck cancer. No resources existed to help her during that challenging time. Boothe set out to make changes.

Ms. Veteran America serves as a role model, teaching and empowering young women to support, inspire and lift-up one another. Proceeds from the Ms. Veteran America competition supports the national nonprofit, Final Salute, Inc. (www.finalsaluteinc.org), provide housing, job support, and educational opportunities to women veterans in need. To date, Final Salute, Inc. has supported over 7,000 women veterans and their children in over 30 states and territories, provided over 15,000 housing days and raised millions in support of their mission.

Utah Healing Field Flag Memorial marks the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

More than 3,300 U.S. flags will fly on the lawns south of Sandy City Hall at 10000 South Centennial Parkway in Sandy, UT from September 9th through 13th.

The flags of the Healing Field® are a fitting tribute to the lives lost on that fateful day and to the determined spirit of those who survived.”

— Former President George W. Bush

SANDY, UT, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Walk with your family through the Utah Healing Field® flag display. Each of the 2,977 flags represents a life lost on 9/11 with each posted flag bearing the name of an individual.

In addition, 348 flags will fly in the "Tribute to Utah’s Fallen" flag display honoring the military, police, and firefighters who have sacrificed their lives serving us all since 2001.

“Twenty years ago, on September 11, 2001, three determined firemen managed to raise the American flag on a mangled flagpole amid the vast destruction at ground zero," said Paul Swenson, president of the Colonial Flag Foundation Board of Trustees. "Images of that moment were captured by a New Jersey newspaper photographer. Within 24 hours, individuals across the country saw the first sign of hope rising from the ashes. From that powerful image of hope and strength woven in the stars and stripes came the inspiration for the first Healing Field® display of flags. On the first anniversary of the 9.11 terrorist attacks, over 3,000 flags were posted on a grassy park in Sandy, UT. One flag-one life. A memorial tribute in red, white, and blue offering hope and healing to the family & friends of each victim and in-turn the entire country. My hope is that each of us will slow down, walk through the flags alone or with our children and remember that day 20 years ago when we lost so many, and stood together."

To commemorate this special anniversary, the Utah Symphony announced plans to perform at the 20th Annual Utah Healing Field's 9/11 Ceremony, presented by the Colonial Flag Foundation. This performance, to be conducted by Conner Gray Covington, takes place on September 11, 2021, at the Sandy Promenade, 10000 South Centennial Parkway in Sandy, Utah.

In addition, now two decades later, hundreds of organizations—spread from coast to coast—have hosted Colonial Flag Foundation programs that bring volunteers and residents together in moving experiences, while simultaneously raising millions of dollars for local charities.

“The legacy of all these souls that were lost that day lives on through the millions of lives that are touched by those that walk among the flags and those that are assisted and uplifted through the thousands of benefiting charities,” Swenson said.

He provides oversight to a veteran program in a 5-hospital system (in the US) and served as a wellness physician in a large municipal fire department with ease of access to its first responders.

TITLE: The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi Endorses The Steinberg Law Group as the Top Asbestos Law Firm

For decades through the 1980s, asbestos was used in dozens of industries.

Pipefitters are at a higher risk of exposure to asbestos than most due to the hands-on nature of the job.

The Steinberg Law Group is affiliated with doctors around the country.

The Steinberg Law Group has the experiences, resources and results to obtain the maximum financial compensation for veterans


TITLE: The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi Endorses The Steinberg Law Group as the Best Asbestos Law Firm – Experience/Resources/Results

PASCAGOULA, MISSISSIPPI, USA, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to those stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal and/or medical options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with an attorney from The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Mississippi has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps win the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2021 were exposed decades ago.

Fortunately, Mississippi does not contain any naturally occurring asbestos deposits. However, Mississippi residents should be wary of the heightened risks of asbestos exposure in the oil & gas, power plant and shipbuilding industries, to name a few. Risky occupations for asbestos exposure include welders, electricians, mechanics, gas fitters, dock workers, demolition workers, chemical workers, carpenters and boiler operators.

Jobsites and locations with known asbestos exposure in Mississippi include, but are not limited to, Ingalls Shipyard, Greenville Hospital, West Biloxi Treatment Plant, Coahoma County Hospital, Jacob & Rouse Cottages Columbia Training School, Mississippi State College for Woman, Greenville Steam Electric Station, Gerald Andrus Plant, Gariner J. High School, Jones County Hospital, Masonite Plant, R.H. Watkins High School, Kosciusko Cotton Mills, Aberdeen High School, Blackburn Junior High School, Binkley Junior High School, Callaway High School, Hinds Memorial Hospital, Green Elementary School, McWillis Elementary School, Rex Brown Power Plant, United County Hospital, University Medical School & Teachers Hospital, Mississippi Vocational College, Bernard Reed Green Coliseum, Hercules Turpentine Plant, Jack Watson Power Plant, Greenwood Leflore Hospital, Greenwood Power Plant, Henderson Generating Station, Henderson Power Plant, Denman Junior High School, Calvery Baptist Church, Jeff Anderson Hospital, Lauderdale County Courthouse, Mississippi Insane Asylum, Moss Point Shipyard, Redwoods Power Plant, Natchez Mill, University of Mississippi, Gulley Warehouse, F. B.
