NEWS FLASH

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces This holiday originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868 and was made into a national holiday in 1971.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Even though Memorial Day is a holiday to honor those who died in military service, we will not discourage anyone not to have a barbecue or go to the beach. However, please keep in mind the sacrifice these individuals made by giving their lives so we can have the freedoms and the way of life we have in our wonderful country. While you are having these celebrations please honor these individuals, Keep them in our hearts and memories. Nothing we have in our country would be possible without their sacrifices.

Branch 294 would like to wish everyone a happy Memorial. Be safe, enjoy your families, enjoy your day off. Keep all that sacrificed lives for our freedom in your hearts.

HEALTH

ACA vs AHCA

Everyone has seen that the Trump Administration wants to eliminate the Affordable Care Act (ACA aka Obamacare) for the new GOP plan the American Health Care Act (AHCA aka Trumpcare). Many don't like Obamacare cause their plans have gone up but the truth is the Health Insurance companies and Pharmaceuticals are the real cause and it affected health plans both on and off Obamacare. If we lose the present law we can lose our kids coverage under our plans to 26, protection on pre-existing conditions we have now and what we will have as we get older and the possibility of being eliminated from a plan because of a pre-existing condition. Now under the AHCA it will charge higher rates to those with people with pre-existing and people over the age of 50. On top of that an Age Tax will also added to the elderly and those that are looking to retire. This is not about a party issue but you and your family and it's survival to be covered. Call your Health Insurance Provider and ask them what will happen if the plan is changed to the GOP plan. Call you Congressman and tell them what you and your family needs and tell them no to the AHCA and to fix ACA. Knowledge is Power and we all need to know what we need and can lose with these changes.
