Project Celebration offers back-to-school advice

School is starting and many of us have a fear of our child being bullied. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, “at least 10% of children are bullied regularly, approximately 50 percent are the target of bullying at some point during their school year.” This bullying even occurs at daycares and preschool levels. If your child is an ongoing target for a bully it can lead to serious consequences down the road. It can cause anxiety disorders, eating disorders, low self-esteem, depression and even alcohol and drug use at early ages. Some kids that are being bullied may never say anything but here are some potential signs to look for: Bruises, scrapes, marks or other unexplained injuries.

Tiger Village: 50 years later

Article Image Alt Text

Tiger Village was the large training village on Peason Ridge where thousands of infantry recruits took Advanced Infantry Training (AIT) at Fort Polk during the Vietnam War. It was a fortified village that trainees had to attack and capture during training. (Robertson Collection)

During the Vietnam War Fort Polk was known as the “Home of the Combat Infantryman” due to realistic basic and combat training taught there. Many of us can remember the 1960s and early 1970s. The first thing most folks think of is that it was the Vietnam War years. It was also the years of love-ins, peace marches, riots, and of the hippie generation. But the one thing that impacted America more than anything was the war that we were involved in that was located in Southeast Asia in a country we had never heard of called Vietnam. Early in the presidency of John F. Kennedy, the first military advisors were sent to Vietnam to assist with training the fledgling Army of the Republic of Viet Nam, known to all as ARVN. The ARVN’s were fighting to keep South Vietnam free of communist control from North Vietnam. It would be a long war, with America and its allies assisting with men, equipment, weapons, and material of all types.
