Military Assembling answers - BingNews Search results Military Assembling answers - BingNews With three out of five military branches failing to meet their recruiting goals, lawmakers seek answers

WASHINGTON — America's military faces a recruiting crisis, with three of the five branches failing to meet their manpower goals this year.

Big bonuses, loosened enlistment requirements, and new advertising slogans did not push the services out of their slumps. Now lawmakers want answers.

"I believe ending the military recruiting crisis should be our top priority. I don't know how we can expect to have a military if we can't solve this recruiting issue," said Sen. Rick Scott (R-Florida) during a hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

The U.S. military is going through one of its worst recruiting stretches since the all-volunteer force began in 1973. The Army missed its recruiting goal by 15,000 soldiers, or 25%. The Army, along with the Air Force and Navy, all expect to miss their goals in 2023.

Only the Marine Corps and the Space Force met their recruitment goals.

The Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel on Wednesday heard a less than upbeat assessment from the branches' top recruiting leaders. 

"Our active-duty Air Force did not meet goal for the first time in 24 years," said Brigadier General Christopher Amrheim, Commander, U.S. Air Force Recruiting Service.

"As we begin FY 24, we are again faced with a challenging environment," said Rear Admiral Alexis Walker, Commander of U.S. Navy Recruiting Command 

"We are competing in one of the toughest recruiting landscapes I have seen in over 33 years of service. This recruiting crisis certainly did not begin overnight, and cannot be repaired overnight," said Major General Johnny Davis, Commander, U.S. Army Recruiting Command.

"The Marine Corps continues to face the same challenges as the other services. They are historic lows in qualification rates, low propensity to serve, labor market challenges and a fragmented media landscape These have all had a compounding effect on the recruiting environment," said Major General William Bowers, Commander, U.S. Marine Corps Recruiting Command.

Task and Purpose reports that the Army has now sent letters to approximately 1,900 active-duty soldiers who were separated for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine, instructing them on how to re-join.

The new year is beginning to take shape and, with it, so is a busy election season.

Illinois voters will head to the polls twice in 2024, as the oval office, seats in the Illinois General Assembly and Illinois Supreme Court, congressional districts, and other local races are up for grabs.

Voters' first opportunity will come on March 19 for the state primary, although those wishing to vote early can do so starting as early as Feb. 8.

Presidential candidates will vie for the state's 17 electoral votes in the fall general election in which Democrats have dominated in recent years. Former president George H.W. Bush was the last Republican to carry Illinois in 1988.

All 118 seats in the Illinois House of Representatives and 23 state Senate seats also will be in contention. Democrats hold 78-40 and 40-19 respective super-majorities. The party maintains 14 of Illinois' 17 congressional seats along with a 5-2 majority in the state's high court.

Here's what you need to know heading into election season.

What do I need to have to be registered to vote?

To be registered to vote in Illinois, voters must first meet a set of criteria.

All voters must be U.S. citizens, be 18 years or older by election day, and reside within their voting precinct for at least 30 days before the election. Convicted individuals in jail and those claiming a right to vote elsewhere are not eligible to vote.

A new state law also allows 16- and 17-year-olds to preregister to vote at a Secretary of State Department of Motor Vehicles office.

Two forms of identification, one showing your name and current address and another displaying your name, are required for registration. Voters can use a driver's license, Social Security card, birth certificate, checkbook, utility bill, bank statement, credit card, student or state I.D. card.

Voters who miss the regular registration ending 28 days before an election, can still register until election day through grace period registration. Grace period is only available in person.

Early voting: In-person, mail and overseas

Voters have several early voting options. County election offices serve as the primary location for early in-person voting, open Monday through Friday and several weekends, up until March 18.

Voters wishing to cast a ballot by mail can request applications either in person or through the mail. Ballots must be returned by March 14. Drop-off boxes are available in all 102 counties in Illinois, which can be found on the ISBOE website.

Those serving in the military and those living overseas have voting options as well via a federal postcard application. Voters can find the form by visiting the Federal Voting Assistance Program website or the Illinois Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment site through ISBOE. The early voting period is typically 45 days before election day.

Illinois voters can find polling locations through their voting identification card or a tool found on the ISBOE website.

St. Louis-area colleges are struggling to fill seats. Older students might be one answer.

ST. LOUIS — One regret has needled David Morris for half a century.

The 74-year-old, a military veteran and father of six, has owned a grocery store, sold real estate, and worked on an assembly line, at a post office and as a lab technician.

But Morris, of Black Jack, never finished college.

Finally, late last spring, he put in a call to Harris-Stowe State University.

“I should have done this a long time ago,” he said.

David Morris, 74, stands in the hallway as he waits to graduate Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis. Morris first started at Harris-Stowe nearly 30 years ago and graduated after returning this year to complete the last class he needed, Spanish.

In Missouri and across the country, the number of people who start college but never finish dwarfs that of those who graduate, a problem that has mushroomed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. About two-thirds of freshmen will not earn a bachelor’s degree in four years, according to Complete College America, a national advocacy organization.

People are also reading…

“Stop-outs” are more likely to be saddled with debt and default on loans. They might miss out on career goals — Morris dreamed of being a teacher — and economic gains.

Schools lose tuition dollars and take a hit on their retention rates, which can influence the enrollment decisions of prospective students.

College attendance has been on a slide in the U.S. since peaking in 2010. There are fewer young adults overall, and fewer of them are choosing higher education. That “demographic cliff” has left schools, especially smaller ones, searching for other ways to fill seats.

The reservoir of Americans with some college credits but no degree continues to expand, from 36 million in 2019 to 40.4 million in 2022, according to the National Student Clearinghouse. Risk factors for dropping out include part-time attendance, being the first one in the family to attend college and coming from a low-income household, said Charles Ansell of Complete College America.

“Life gets in the way,” he said. “Finances get tight. You’re overtired, demoralized. You drop out.”

Reengaging with former students for whom a diploma is just beyond their grasp has multiple benefits, Ansell said. For schools, it generates revenue and improves metrics. For students, it opens up possibilities and reverses old missteps.

“It makes all the sense in the world,” said Ansell. “We could be doing better.”

David Morris, 74, left, gets his photo taken with his classmates before graduation Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis. "I was obviously the oldest person in the class, probably the oldest person in the university, but they accepted me," Morris said.

‘Win for the university’

Higher-education programs that directly target later-stage stop-outs, though still uncommon, are “proliferating,” he said.

Webster University plans to implement a “full-blown” project next semester, according to Lisa Blazer, vice president of enrollment and management. The Webster Groves institution — which has weathered a 50% drop in enrollment over the past decade — has contacted some students who have recently left to gauge their interest in returning. The new project will include a marketing campaign and a broader reach.

“It’s a win for the university,” Blazer said. “There are so many students out there.”

Finding them is one challenge; convincing them to invest their time and money is another. The rate of return can be tiny, but it’s worth an attempt, said Wendell Williams, an associate vice chancellor at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. In the past decade, 10,000 one-time Salukis have stopped out with more than 90 credit hours to their names.

“Somewhere in that 10,000 might be the cure for cancer, a way to control hunger, a solution for climate change,” said Williams.

An effort to bring them back, Project 90, was rolled out in August. About 15 returners are expected to join the campus’ 8,000 undergraduates for the spring semester.

The idea behind Project 90 stemmed from a small pilot group, which included Percy Timberlake, 61, of suburban Chicago. He arrived at SIUC in the mid-1980s to study criminal justice. During his senior year, his girlfriend moved back to Chicago with their baby boy to be closer to family.

“I wasn’t focused after that,” said Timberlake. So he left, six hours shy of his degree.

He worked as a deputy sheriff for Cook County, had four more kids, got them all through college, and retired in 2021. He never really thought about school.

Then one of his friends, a member of the SIUC board of trustees, broached the subject.

“I didn’t want to let my buddy down because we are like brothers,” Timberlake said. “I told him, ‘I’ll do it.’”

The first thing Timberlake learned was how much had changed.

He used to sit at a desk in a crowded lecture hall. He copied outlines from the board into a notebook. He visited his professors during office hours.

This time, his classes were online. He never had to leave the house.

“I felt like I was on an island,” said Timberlake. But he adjusted, passing his second and final class last spring. “I wanted to show my kids that no matter what, you can always finish what you’ve started.”

David Morris, 74, lifts his fist as he walks across the stage after graduating Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis.

One class short

Intergenerational teasing pushed John Dames of Soulard back to the University of Missouri-Columbia three years ago. His oldest daughter was a student there, and “I was determined to beat her to graduation,” he said.

Dames, 53, was supposed to graduate in 1992, but his original major, Soviet studies, went out the window a semester before that, when the Soviet Union dissolved.

“It was a weird time,” said Dames. “I didn’t know what to do with that degree.”

He checked out, leaving one class incomplete, and jumped into a career in graphic design and software development.

In 2020, Mizzou unveiled a rebranded college-completion program, the Finish Line. COVID provided an unexpected benefit: More classes were available online and more students were willing to learn that way.

The Finish Line’s new focus was on ex-Tigers with more than a hundred hours, like Dames.

“It’s a small number in the scheme of things,” said Rachael Orr, the program’s director.

But it’s a motivated set of students. The end is already in sight. Since the initiative began, almost 200 people have completed their degree.

Dames aced the one class he needed, the History of Strategic Warfare. And he likes to remind his family that he became a Mizzou alum before his daughter did.

“I was glad to have won our inside joke,” he said.

At Harris-Stowe’s graduation last month, president LaTonia Collins Smith highlighted “extraordinary stories” from among the class of 128.

“It’s never too late to fulfill one’s academic aspirations,” she told the crowd gathered at the Henry Givens administration building.

‘Above and beyond’

Her final example was Morris, whose diploma was 50 years in the making — longer if you count the foundation that his parents laid for him in childhood.

“My mom and dad had a work ethic they passed on to us,” he said.

David Morris, 74, moves his tassel after graduating Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis.

The family moved to St. Louis from Mississippi when Morris was 10, leaving behind their farm and settling in North City. Morris graduated from Soldan High School in 1968 and was drafted into the Army.

He earned an associate’s degree in business administration from St. Louis Community College while he worked and raised his kids. In 1983, he had his first class at Harris-Stowe. He wanted to become a history teacher.

But the load proved too much. He took a long break, returning in 2006 after the Ford assembly plant where he was employed closed. He paused again a couple of semesters later, after he had a stroke.

Sixteen years went by. Morris wasn’t sure how many credits he lacked but decided last spring that it wouldn’t hurt to ask. He contacted Harris-Stowe’s Office of Persistence and Completion, which was created two years ago to “address the needs of returning adults and help them make a smooth transition,” said Aline Phillips, the assistant provost for retention and student success.

Harris-Stowe, with an enrollment of about 1,100, has a record of low graduation rates that led to a sanction from the Higher Learning Commission in 2022. Fewer than 20% of its freshmen will earn a diploma in six years.

But Phillips said the university is moving in the right direction. At about $260 a credit hour, it’s an affordable option. And the small campus allows for plenty of personalized help.

David Morris, 74, right, and classmate Kennetha Paris hug after graduating Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis.

Morris needed just one class — Spanish — to wrap up an independent studies major. The student success coach he was paired with, Karen Czmarko, is a former Spanish teacher and tutored Morris through the semester.

“I call her Special K,” Morris said. “She goes above and beyond.”

He got an A and was asked to speak at a dinner hosted by the university to attract other stop-outs like him.

One of the attendees, Czmarko told him, emailed afterward to say she “wanted to be like Mr. Morris.”

He was flattered, but he wishes he hadn’t waited.

“It’s bittersweet,” said Morris. “I should have done this long ago.”

So he’s wasting no time on his next goal: getting into law school.

Veterans, Military Members are the Answer to the Construction Industry’s Labor Woes

There are more than 800 jobs across branches of service in the United States military, many of which require the same training and certifications that apply to construction workers. Though their specialized skills transfer seamlessly between these types of jobs, only 6.2% of male and 0.7% of female veterans work in construction. These stark numbers indicate contractors are not doing enough to tap into the potential of the veteran population to combat industry-wide labor woes. 

A simple remedy is to leverage construction-specific human resource software solutions to attract veterans. In my experience as an HR technology professional and a soldier in the Iowa Army National Guard, it all comes down to how you market yourself as an organization and an industry.

Know Your Audience

First things first, it's important to differentiate between inactive and active members of the military. Veterans can benefit from assistance easing the transition from military service to the trades. At the same time, reservists may prefer special accommodations and benefits specific to their needs, including paid time off for monthly drills, military schools, and annual training. 

Here are a few ways construction business owners can Strengthen their offerings and optimize HR software to bolster recruiting efforts for these two populations:

1. Customize and leverage applicant tracking

The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) prohibits civilian employers from discriminating against veterans based on present, past, and future military service. It also entitles service members, such as National Guard members and reservists, who leave their civilian employment to perform covered military service to prompt reemployment with their pre-service employer following the completion of their duty. When prospective employees apply for jobs and disclose their military or veteran status, that information is captured in a company’s HR software. 

Hiring managers can filter applicants based on their veteran or military status and even invite those flagged to apply for other vacant positions. They can take it one step further and add prompts to any given data set to determine, for instance, who among the veterans applying for a given job has a specific military training certificate or commercial driving license needed for that role. Another way to utilize advanced analytics in applicant tracking is to organize a veteran-specific job fair and invite those your system flags as veterans and service members to attend.

2. Partner with veteran-specific nonprofits for recruitment

Many national, regional, and even local chapters of organizations provide training and job placement for transitioning active-duty military service members, veterans, members of the National Guard or Reserve, and their families. Contractors can partner with prominent organizations like Helmets to Hardhats and Hire Heroes USA, which often provide helpful recruitment and hiring resources.

Local chapters of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and the American Legion are integrated into local communities and can function as important strategic partners to extend your immediate network. Business owners can also contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or their state’s workforce development offices to connect with veterans seeking trade opportunities. Each state typically has an online job board where companies can promote their vacant positions.

Another fantastic resource for employers is the HIRE Vets Medallion Program. Established in 2018, these awards honor companies or organizations committed to hiring transitioning service members, veterans and wounded warriors. Award recipients receive a certificate with their award year, a digital image of the medallion to use on their marketing materials, and are recognized on the program website. Their stamp of approval can help you attract top recruits from the military’s expansive talent pool.

3. Develop or restructure your employee benefits to meet the specific needs of veterans and reservists

Pay differential programs for National Guard members and reservists can help employers stand out when recruiting. While the law entitles military members to leave their civilian employers for covered military service—like monthly drills and their standard two-week annual training—it doesn’t require companies to pay them while they’re gone. 

Some employers pay service members their full wage while absent for these trainings or provide an allotment of paid time off specifically for military training. Others allow them to use standard paid time off to cover their absence or permit them to take unpaid days. Another option is to pay Guard members and reservists the difference between their military and civilian wage since the military wage is typically lower. Supplementing their service pay with a differential wage or paid time off is a strong incentive to attract and retain the soldiers who already live, work, and serve in your community.

Offering a health insurance opt-out arrangement is another way to attract veterans and active-duty military members while reducing your company’s medical benefit costs. Under these arrangements, contractors pay service members to opt out of their insurance program in favor of TRICARE, the military’s health care program. TRICARE offers generous coverage, so many soldiers prefer it over private insurance policies, but few are compensated for doing so. It’s a win-win because these annual incentives generally cost employers significantly less than paying their share of an insurance premium.

Another valuable benefit you can offer to help attract veterans is a robust employee assistance program (EAP). EAPs provide employees and their families free access to licensed counselors and can be especially beneficial to those who have PTSD, which is common among veterans. These programs can help former military members cope with the stress of transitioning to civilian life. Evaluating the employee benefits in your HR portal through the lens of a service member can increase their appeal to this demographic of potential employees.

4. Revamp your learning management system’s offerings

When a service member is transitioning to civilian life, support from their employer can influence their success. While the US military has a robust training and certification system, you will want to offer all new hires refresher courses on activities pertinent to their job. Consider even adapting a course geared toward the veteran population. Veteran-specific training allows you to show respect for their accumulated skills and experience and help them transfer that experience into your workplace and processes.

Your HR software’s learning management system is a critical workforce development component. It should include training on Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and EEOC compliance, job site security, sexual harassment training, and more.

5. Start a veterans resource group

Creating a veterans resource group (VRG) led by senior members of your staff who have served our country can make the transition to the civilian workforce less daunting. VRGs can recreate the sense of camaraderie many find in the armed forces. They also demonstrate a company’s values and commitment to supporting veterans. Since construction operations are often spread out across a state or region, you can incorporate a virtual portal for the group to meet remotely.

6. Employee referral programs

Employee referral programs are generally an effective way of pre-screening job candidates, as referees are more likely to have the skills and qualifications you seek. It can save companies time and money sourcing the ideal candidate. 

Military camaraderie often translates to the civilian world, which means veterans have deep ties to other veterans. This esprit de corps can compel them to recommend employment with your company to other veterans if they find a supportive atmosphere within your organization. Setting up a way for your employees to refer qualified candidates within your HR portal can make referring friends and family more seamless and encourage engagement.

Additional Considerations

In my experience, servicemen and women are more likely to support businesses that support soldiers and their families. There are many deliberate policies contractors can adopt to appeal to veterans and service members beyond the scope of HR software.

Corporate giving is a generous and strategic way to appeal to this demographic. By supporting organizations like K9s for Warriors or the Wounded Warrior Project and their causes, you send a message that your organization values military service.

Supporting veterans should also extend to their families. Military families make great sacrifices for our country, relocating frequently when their active duty family members are reassigned to a new military base. Contractors can offer military spouses priority for work-from-home opportunities to make relocating easier. Offering them the option to work from home shows your appreciation for their commitment and sacrifice.

Veterans typically possess the technical, teamwork and leadership skills and experience we value in construction. Build a framework within your organization to attract these candidates and help them transition to civilian life, and you will fill your ranks with highly qualified workers, effectively combating the construction industry’s workforce shortage.

Published: 12/26/2023 3:42:02 PM

Modified: 12/26/2023 3:41:20 PM

In the Bible story of King Solomon and two women claiming to be the mother of one baby, wisdom shines when Solomon asks for a sword to cut the baby in two. One mother relinquishes her claim so that the baby may live. Solomon knows the baby must belong to the true mother who would not see her child harmed. Today, we have leaders who would destroy the dream of homelands for Palestinian and Jewish neighbors. Ceasing the war, returning the hostages and rebuilding Gaza for the traumatized people left would seem to illustrate the metaphor of a baby who has been cut but is not yet dead. First, stop cutting. A cease-fire will mean that Israelis relinquish the stated goal of obliterating Hamas. The civilian price Palestinians pay is too high. (It is too high for those Israeli hostages killed by Israeli Defense Forces as well.)

Does this make Israel unsafe? I believe Israel’s future will be equally unsafe as war traumatizes the next generation of Palestinians. Israel’s security intelligence was overlooked by Netanyahu’s government. Vote out Netanyahu. Plan for a homeland for the neighbors who share the home. Let the land be enough for all. What other choice is there? There is no military answer to splitting this baby.

Even though Fort Madison High School students were understandably eager to get out of school and start their holiday break, they gave Thursday’s presentation respectful attention.

The assembly honoring veterans was Thursday morning. Local veterans and active military personnel were invited to the assembly.

Activities Director Jeff Lamb said, “Each year we gather together to celebrate and thank the members of our armed forces. These men and women fight to protect our nation and to continually make sacrifices in the name of freedom.

“In the spirit of the holidays, it is important to remember the freedom that we have throughout the year.”

The national anthem was sung, followed by a practicing of ‘In Flanders Field’ by John McCrae, the Pledge of Allegiance, and a song from the choir.

Lt. Atwood then took the microphone to tell the students about three main things: fraternity, opportunity and purpose.

“First and foremost, one of the things I’ve gotten out of being a veteran is the fraternity,” he said. All these people sitting up here, these guys are my brothers. They have served their time, they have given back to the country that has given so much to us and they’re here now to be honored by us.”

As a member of the military, Atwood said he has had a lot of opportunity.

“You guys are all from Fort Madison, you notice there really isn’t a whole lot going on around here,” he said. “Since I’ve been in the military, I’ve gotten to do lots of cool things while the government pays for it.”

Atwood said he has lived on both coasts and abroad, learned two other languages, has visited other countries, and will soon be jumping out of a plane.

“I also got paid to fly in a Blackhawk helicopter around Mt. Rushmore,” he said. “And then the next day, I was the guest of honor there in front of Mt. Rushmore.”

Atwood has served in two branches of the military: the air force and the army. He is currently a platoon leader.

“When I go out into the field, I have 30 or 40 wide-eyed young troops looking to me for all the answers,” he said. “I don’t know about you, how many of you have been in charge of stuff, but when you have 20-30 people that you’re responsible for, it’s pretty cool, it’s pretty fulfilling.”

Atwood said he has “the best job in the world.”

“I was out for five years,” he said. “The reason I returned is you miss it. All these people are here today because they miss it. And being in the military, the fraternity, the purpose, everything, it’s just not the same as a civilian. Fraternity, opportunity, purpose.”

Retired MSgt. Paul Booth, a former teacher at Fort Madison High School, used to be a teacher at the school.

“It’s an honor for me to come back to the school I actually worked in, recruited in,” he said. “I had so much fun here.”

He gave some live advice to the students and told them to remember their teachers, be good people and get an education.

“The military is not an out. ‘Oh I can just go into the military’ No you can’t,” he said. “When I went into the military, the Marine Corps in 1968, you could weigh 600 pounds, not be able to write your name on a piece of paper, if you could pass the physical, you were on your way to Vietnam. If you couldn’t make weight, they got you to weight. But it’s changed today, changed a lot.”

He encouraged students to show respect to people in uniform.

“What I’m asking you today is when you see a serviceman, a fireman, a policeman, anybody that wears a uniform, just walk up and say thank you,” he said. “We’ve even got female soldiers here. I’m really proud of that.”

Booth joined the Marine Corps in 1968 and served during Vietnam. His son, a Central Lee graduate, served in Iraq. He has many family members who served in World War II.

“To be here today and be honored, talking to you students and you doing what you’re doing,” he said, “means more than you can ever imagine, how much we feel about that.”

Lamb recognized veterans on staff at Fort Madison High School.

Teacher Kristy Roach, who led a World War II-focused trip with students last year to London, Normandy and Paris, told the group about her next adventure.

“In 2026 we’re looking at Munich, Dachau, Auschwitz and Berlin,” she said. “You have to have taken US History and passed as a sophomore. You need to be an upstanding and representable student from Fort Madison High School.”

She said there will be fundraisers and as she gets more details, she will share them with administration and the students will hear about it as well.

“It will be much more of a somber experience than the last trip,” she said, “so I want to make sure that those that are interested are prepared.”

Rep. Jason Crow demands answers from VA over deleted prosthetic orders

A Colorado lawmaker is demanding answers over staffing shortages, staff morale and canceled orders for prosthetics at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Aurora.

Rep. Jason Crow, D-Aurora, sent a letter Thursday to the Under Secretary of Health within the VA over problems at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center uncovered by The Denver Post. 

"It is my understanding that there are a number of ongoing reviews/investigations as a result of the troubling information that has come to light regarding staffing shortages, staff morale and the RMVA prosthetics department," he wrote. "... We expect a transparent account of the current state of RMVA and any remedial action taken in response. I appreciate the steps taken so far, and the changes made, to hold parties responsible."

In November, The Denver Post published an investigation showing, among other things, the head of the prosthetics department was deleting orders as if they never came in. The department handles orders for items such as artificial limbs, wheelchairs and hearing aids. The goal was to reduce the backlog of orders to make it look as if the department was operating smoothly, the paper reported. 

VA nurses have also raised the alarm about problems at the hospital, holding a rally in July to draw attention to poor working conditions. 

“Nurses are being assaulted, kicked, spit at, hit, and threatened on a daily basis,” said Ricardo Ortega, a registered nurse and the NNOC/NNU associate director, in a news release.

The nurses also complained of short staffing and retaliation from management. 

In late October, the director of VA Eastern Colorado Health Care, Michael Kilmer and and Shilpa A. Rungta, the chief of staff, were removed from the leadership, the The Denver Gazette reported. The leaders were removed pending "potential operational oversight issues and questions regarding organizational health and workplace culture."

Crow posed specific questions to the VA in his letter asking for an outline of all reviews and investigations and an outline of remedial action. 

He keyed in on the problems around prosthetics, asking how many orders were deleted; how long staff engaged in deleting orders and what is being done to help veterans who had orders deleted. 

He also asked when the agency expects to make permanent leadership changes at the hospital and what resources the VA planned to send to the hospital.

US military space plane blasts off aboard SpaceX rocket on secretive mission expected to last years

The U.S. military's X-37B space plane blasted off Thursday on another secretive mission that’s expected to last at least a couple of years.

Like previous missions, the reusable plane resembling a mini space shuttle carried classified experiments. There's no one on board.

The space plane took off aboard SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center at night, more than two weeks late because of technical issues.

A SpaceX Falcon Heavy sits on Launch Pad 39-A on Thursday at Kennedy Space Center ahead of the USSF-52 mission.  

It marked the seventh flight of an X-37B, which has logged more than 10 years in orbit since its debut in 2010.

The last flight, the longest one yet, lasted 2½ years before ending on a runway at Kennedy a year ago.

Space Force officials would not say how long this orbital test vehicle would remain aloft or what's on board other than a NASA experiment to gauge the effects of radiation on materials.

Built by Boeing, the X-37B resembles NASA’s retired space shuttles. But they're just one-fourth the size at 29 feet long. No astronauts are needed; the X-37B has an autonomous landing system.

They take off vertically like rockets but land horizontally like planes, and are designed to orbit between 150 miles and 500 miles high. There are two X-37Bs based in a former shuttle hangar at Kennedy.
