On The Anger Over The DHS Security Report {UpDated}

(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Yesterday I put up a post you can find here {this link takes you to the post at my site} on the recent DHS report that came out and many were extremely angry about as to labeling OIF and OEF Veterans as possible recruits to fanatical rightwing hate groups. The spin being it was labeling All Returning Vets as a possible problem, it didn’t, but a few Veterans Groups and The talking heads and Congressional members of the Republican party wanted the spin to come out as that.

Today a friend posted a link to editorial from a Vietnam Vet, at my facebook page, which hits on some of the winger responses himself, and I responded about a Real Incident of Actual Negative Labeling of Many Veterans, these with Honorable Discharges. As you all know less than already gives the negative in the civilian world.

There was a huge stink with us returning Vietnam Veterans when this was found out and there was a re-issue of new DD214’s to any who requested or even found out about this.

What was done, well apparently there were embedded numbers in the DD214’s, Spin Codes, numbers that were apparently based on what one might be perceived as by the military once back in civilian life. Some might have led to a positive but others apparently were to show a possibility of a trouble making, or anti-social, etc. etc. etc. etc..

These could supposedly be used by businesses, corporation, colleges, you get the picture, without the Vets knowledge that these numbers even existed.

Did a search to see if I could find some info for her to show what I was talking about, well apparently it’s reared it’s head again, I quickly was given this:

Injustice Exposed: The Secret Code on Veteran’s DD214

Edwin H. Crosby III Vietnam Vet. explains the secret code on the 26,000,000 veteran’s DD214 forms, and how it is used against the Veterans. Special Veteran’s Forum April, 2007 Edwin H. Crosby III gave permission to upload this video.This is the site on more information The Secret Code on Veteran’s DD214

The  link is an hour and a half Video Discussion with the Vietnam Vet, who took this to the courts, about just this, the Embedded Code on DD214’s.

And here I thought this was All Cleared Up years ago, apparently not!!

Hidden on practically every veteran’s DD-214 discharge papers are secret code letters and numbers called Separation Program Numbers (SPN numbers) that might make obtaining veterans benefits difficult if not impossible. Here are these secret alphabetic codes that may make a difference in your future.

These codes are contained in your military records and may be annotated on various military separation documents. These codes are subject to change, and the Department of Defense will no longer allow the military services to release the meanings of these codes to the general public. The below definitions were obtained before this prohibition went into effect.>>>>>For the List of Codes Click Here
