This website was created to inform and educate the public on a devastating epidemic which is overwhelming our nations senior population. Within our nursing homes and assisted living facilities, nearly 10%, or roughly 150,000 seniors experience elder abuse each year. Many of these cases go unreported, although some of them can be quite serious and even result in the death of a loved one. Nursing home abuse in the United States has turned into an epidemic. Our seniors and loved ones are at risk of elder abuse each and every day.
American Military History
This website states that the history of military activity in the U.S. is closely tied to the development of the country as a whole, and it is impossible to understand the nation without knowing about its military engagements. The past century has seen some of the biggest conflicts in human history, and the most incredible advancements in the technology of war as well, and the U.S. has changed profoundly because of this. A big part of our mission here at MilitaryOnlineColleges.org is to provide information to those who have served in the military and are moving into a different phase of their lives by pursuing higher education. However, we know it is important never to forget the lessons of our military past, or the service members who have participated in America’s significant military history. This list is not a ranking of these sites, merely an index of some of the most informative sites and articles covering many aspects of the American Military during the 20th century and early parts of the 21st.
