Latest DUSTOFF News

If it's been a couple of weeks since your last visit to our site, you may want to visit our Old New Page (or any of the past years located in the left buttons) and get caught up on what you may have missed.

American Made
Songs for Unsung Heroes

American Made was created to raise funds for non-profit organizations that assist and support our troops and veterans. It is the maiden release of STONE SOUP RECORDS, a subsidiary of Imagine a Better World Productions, dedicated to addressing the needs of people by the people.

Spanning multiple genres - including country, pop, folk, hip-hop and rock - American Made is a heartfelt tribute to those who have served our country. One song is entitled "Dust Off" and is about DUSTOFF Association member Doug Moore's mission to rescue three POWs during the Vietnam War.

From the anthemic optimism of the title track to songs of gut-wrenching loss, this compilation evokes a range of emotions. Through it all, one fact remains true: in the face of adversity, we are a nation that always soldiers on. Listen to these stories... and hear what it truly means to be an American hero.

Listen to a sample of the music here and find out how to purchase the CD in our DUSTOFF Association Store.

VA ID Card Update

The new Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC) provides increased security for your personal information - no personally identifiable information is contained on the magnetic stripe or barcode. It is also a salute to your military service. The emblem of your latest branch of service is displayed on your card. Several special awards will also be listed. The VHIC replaces the Veteran Identification Card (VIC) and will be issued only to Veterans who are enrolled in the VA health care system. Its purpose is for identification and check-in at VA appointments. It cannot be used as a credit card or an insurance card, and it does not authorize or pay for care at non-VA facilities.

In February 2014, VA began issuing the VHIC to newly enrolled Veterans and enrolled Veterans who were not previously issued the old VIC but requested an identification card. Beginning in May 2014, VA started automatically mailing VHICs to enrolled Veterans who were issued the VIC. Because VA will be reissuing more than 6 million cards, they ask for your patience during this time. Veterans who were issued a VIC do not need to return to their VA medical center to have a photo taken for the VHIC. Enrolled Veterans who do not have the VIC can contact their local VA medical center Enrollment Coordinator to arrange to have their picture taken for the new VHIC, or they may request a new VHIC at their next VA health care appointment.

Bob Mitchell Retires

Dena Mitchell surprised her husband Bob Mitchell with the flag flown in his honor. The flag was flown by C/2-227 in Afghanistan in honor of Bob's service to the Army and to the DUSTOFF Mission. The flag was to have been presented at this year's DUSTOFF Reunion but Bob's work prevented him from traveling to the Reunion. So, at dinner with Mike Pouncey and Vincent Carnazza (both of whom are active in DUSTOFF proponency at the Medical Evacuation Proponency Directorate at Fort Rucker) and their wives, Dena surprised Bob with the flag. Thanks for a great career on active duty as both a Warrant Officer Aviator and Commissioned Officer and your service both in Combat and in peacetime.
