"NUMQUAM NAVIGARE SOLUS"

NEVER TO SAIL ALONE

The Navy Safe Harbor Foundation provides an online newsletter with a salute to President Ronald Reagan. On October 25th 1988, President Reagan and Vice President George H.W. Bush elevated the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to cabinet-level. The Navy Safe Harbor Foundation is dedicated to supporting the recovery of seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, and their families by assisting them with resources not currently provided by government or community resources. The Beacon links to a wide-array of corporations, organizations, and programs which go above and beyond the call of duty in recognizing and realizing honor by granting appreciation for the United States Armed Forces.

"And the living have a responsibility to remember the conditions that led to the wars in which our heroes died. Perhaps we can start by remembering this: that all of those who died for us and our country were, in one way or another, victims of a peace process that failed; victims of a decision to forget certain things; to forget, for instance, that the surest way to keep a peace going is to stay strong. Weakness, after all, is a temptation -- it tempts the pugnacious to assert themselves -- but strength is a declaration that cannot be misunderstood. Strength is a condition that declares actions have consequences. Strength is a prudent warning to the belligerent that aggression need not go unanswered." --President Ronald Reagan, 11NOV1985

Inspired by the military community, Navy Safe Harbor Foundation was created to efficiently identify and meet the needs of recovering Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Merchant Marines and their families. NSHF will fill the gaps of current nonmedical provisions through collaboration with federal and community resources.

Aboard ships captained by the likes of John Paul Jones and John Barry, were the first sickbays where ship surgeons, assisted by loblolly boys, practiced their healing craft. Although science and medicine has changed greatly over the last three centuries, Navy Medicine’s mission of healthcare and readiness remains true today as it did in the “Age of Sail.”

Navy Medicine has a long and proud history. The first shots of the American Revolution fired at Lexington and Concord on 19 April 1775 marked both the birth of a nation and the Continental Army. However, it was the British blockade of the American coast and the need to break that blockade that spawned the Continental Navy and ultimately what we now call the Navy Medical Department. The United States Navy has a deep commitment to the welfare of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen — at bedside, during rehabilitation, and throughout their transition back to active duty or to civilian life.

Navy Medicine is a global healthcare network of 63,000 Navy medical personnel around the world who provide high quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ship, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

Today, military medicine is performing around the world, on land, at sea and in the air, saving lives and safely transporting patients to military emergency care within minutes of the initial injury and on to a stateside military treatment facility.

Many wounded heroes transition to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for rehabilitative care. To help this process, the VA created a program called “Seamless Transition,” that assigns a VA representative to ensure a smooth evolution of medical services.

NSHF wants to ensure that every service member is given an opportunity for full recovery by providing financial assistance, respite care, special equipment, transportation, recreational opportunities, and other services.

THE STORMS OF BATTLE

Honor to the Soldier, and Sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor also to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field, and serves, as he best can, the same cause—honor to him, only less than to him, who braves, for the common good, the storms of heaven and the storms of battle. --President Abraham Lincoln, 02DEC1863

LIVING ON THE EDGE OF DANGER

"Most of us, most of the time, live in blissful ignorance of what a small, elite, heroic group of Americans are doing for us night and day. As we speak, all over the globe, American sailors and submariners and aviators are doing something very dangerous. People say, 'Well it can't be too dangerous because there are no wrecks.' But the reason we don't have more accidents is that these are superb professionals; the fact that they master the dangers does not mean the dangers aren't real. Right now, somewhere around the world, young men are landing high-performance jet aircraft on the pitching decks of aircraft carriers -- at night! You can't pay people to do that; they do it out of love of country, of adventure, of the challenge. We all benefit from it, and the very fact that we don't have to think about it tells you how superbly they're doing their job -- living on the edge of danger so the rest of us need not think about, let alone experience danger." --George Will, 28JAN1986

DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." --President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, 23APR1910
