The 59 Veterans Project has a Veterans Post for You!

PLEASE SHARE WITH EVERYONE EVERYWHERE!

Here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT we don’t need a special reason or holiday to honor and celebrate our military veterans. It’s a privilege to honor them every single day. We hope you feel the same.

For our project is to help veterans. So visit us often here on Facebook (at https://www.facebook.com/59veterans/) to stay up to date as our project continues to move forward. There is a summit we intend to ascend. It is a lofty one. And we hope you join us in its ascent!

GOD BLESS EVERY VETERAN

59 VETERANS PROJECT SALUTES THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE!

NPS SIGN

THE 59 VETS SALUTES THE NPS!

 
Our project here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT to help veterans and work with the NPS (National Park Service) to accomplish this, is still working its way toward fruition. But we wanted to take a moment to thank the NPS, which will be partnering with us in this great enterprise.
 
As an agency of the United States federal government, the the National Park Service manages all our national parks, numerous national monuments, and other conservation and historical properties throughout the United States (including Hawaii). The NPS was created on August 25, 1916, by Congress when it passed the National Park Service Organic Act, and is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
 
The NPS is responsible for preserving and protecting the ecological and historical integrity of these sacred places. And also managing and making them available and accessible for public use and enjoyment.
 
As of 2014, the NPS employs 21,651 employees, many of them park rangers, who oversee 417 sites, of which 59 are designated our national parks. To learn more about the National Park Service and our magnificent 59 national parks, you can visit these online sites: https://www.nps.gov/index.htm and http://www.nationalparkservice.org/.
 
Meanwhile, to learn more about us, the 59 VETERANS PROJECT, visit our headquarters company on the Internet here: http://59veterans.com/, and join us on Facebook to read epic stories about our veterans and national parks (https://www.facebook.com/59veterans/). We welcome you to join us so we may ascend this summit together!

59 Vets Project Welcomes You to Lake Clark National Park!

LAKE CLARK NAT'L PARK

WE’D LOVE YOU TO SHARE THIS POST EVERYWHERE!

Lake Clark National Park in beautiful, rugged Alaska is the journey and experience of a lifetime for anyone who visits it. Maybe not as well known as many of our country’s popular parks (Yosemite, Yellowstone, Death Valley, Grand Canyon). But Lake Clark definitely offers an equally unforgettable adventure to those ready to take an eager jaunt to America’s largest state.

First declared a national monument in 1978, and then established as a national park and preserve in 1980, the region around Lake Clark features four active volcanoes, including Mount Redoubt, as well as an abundance of rivers, glaciers, waterfalls, and a vast expanse of verdant terrain. Temperate rainforests, a tundra plateau, and three mountain ranges complement Lake Clark’s splendid landscape.

Wikipedia says: “The wide variety of ecosystems in the park means that virtually all major Alaskan animals, terrestrial and marine, may be seen in and around the park [including the brown bear and red fox]. Salmon, particularity sockeye salmon, play a major role in the ecosystem. No roads lead to the park and it can only be reached by boat or small aircraft, typically floatplanes. The major settled area in the park and preserve is Port Alsworth on Lake Clark. Five other settlements are within the park, populated mainly by Dena’ina natives.”

Naturally, all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT can’t wait to personally experience Lake Clark National Park and traverse its amazing precincts in the company of U.S. Veterans who we will be training for a new career in 4K ultra high-definition and virtual reality videography. To learn more about our project, visit 9us at http://59veterans.com/, and join us in this epic summit we are destined to ascend!

Come Visit Sequoia National Park with the 59 Veterans Project!

GENERAL SHERMAN TREE

PLEASE SHARE WITH FRIENDS & VETERANS!

Sequoia National Park near central California is often called the protector park. For it protects the Giant Forest, which boasts some of the world’s largest trees, including the General Sherman, a giant sequoia which is the largest living tree on Earth! It stands almost 275 feet in height, with a circumference of 102 feet, and its largest branch having a diameter of 6.8 feet. General Sherman (named after the famous Civil War general!) has an estimated age of 2,300–2,700 years.
Other features of Sequoia National Park include over 240 caves, a long segment of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and Moro Rock, a large granite dome. The park also contains among its natural resources the highest point in the contiguous 48 United States: Mount Whitney, which towers at 14,494 feet (4,418 m) above sea level.
Sequoia National Park is a giant place (spanning 404,064 acres) and a beautiful vacation spot during spring and summer of each year. To learn more about this magnificent national park, visit this giant website: https://www.nps.gov/seki/index.htm

SHARE WITH OUR MILITARY VETERANS EVERYWHERE!

Actor and film star Gary Sinise is one of our favorite people here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT. And for good reason. Today, there is perhaps no one–celebrity or otherwise–who supports and helps veterans like Gary does. Recently he was recognized and awarded a prestigious medal for this, and it is our pleasure to share news of this event with all our friends and veterans throughout the country (http://tinyurl.com/k9rhycp).

Hand salute to Gary Sinise!

Hopefully, a few short years from now millions of commuters will be enjoying a fast but inexpensive ride aboard high speed rail trains between Las Vegas and southern California.

Check out this cogent article by Art Marroquin in the Las Vegas Review-Journal regarding this upcoming event. All of us here at FRIENDS OF HSR believe this one is a sure bet for high speed rail coming to America. Finally. And we can’t wait to cash in our chips on this bet! 🙂
