    Message from the Top


01 October 2017, CAPT Ted Daywalt, USNR-Ret, passed away at the Shands Hospital, Gainesville, FL, from service related Interstitial Pulmonary Disease.

In addition to his career in the Naval Reserve, since 1999, Ted has been the president and CEO of VetJobs, the leading military job board on the Internet.

He served on active duty in the Navy for seven years. In 1978, he transferred to the Naval Reserve Intelligence Program, from which he retired as a Captain (O-6) with 28 years of service. He was a stalwart NIP member.

CAPT Ed Pope, USN-Ret, whose release from unjust imprisonment in Moscow was another of Ted’s causes, passed the following:

“Those of us who had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Ted will miss him. He was a wonderful man, strong believer in God, family and country to the very end.”

Ed included a note from the Daywalt family:

Thank you for your visits, your prayers and the many expression of love that you all have showed to Ted on this journey.

Ted’s priorities in life were: God, his family and his country, in that order, and we will honor his memory by continuing his legacy.

Belinda, Melissa, Andrew and Liz

Memorial and interment plans are incomplete at this time. Ted’s family asks that in lieu of memorial contributions that each person chose to honor Ted’s life and legacy by personally making a difference in a Veteran’s life.

  1. Happy 18th Birthday to VetJobs!

As of 11:00 AM on November 11, 2017, Veterans of Foreign Wars sponsored VetJobs will have been serving the employment needs of transitioning military, National Guard and Reserve, veterans, wounded warriors, disabled veterans and their family members for eighteen years!

During that time, millions have used the site as a resource for guidance on how to conduct a job search, interviewing, career advice, referral to other appropriate career sites, to find military related job fairs, and most of all, to successfully apply to hundreds of thousands of jobs with military friendly employers who want to hire veterans and their family members. VetJobs is now averaging over 200,000+ real jobs per day. VetJobs continues to be a very successful resource in assisting veterans and their family members to find meaningful employment.

VetJobs materials are used by state and federal DOL, DOD TAP, ACAP and VA offices as well as military and school counselors. Some of the major reasons VetJobs has become a critical tool to those assisting veterans seeking employment is the VetJobs Employment Assistance section (, the Veteran Advisor behavioral/technical career assessment test ( and the Career Fairs ( page. VetJobs offers job information not found anywhere else on the Internet, particularly the lists of vetted job boards in the Employment Assistance section.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On November 10, we celebrate the Marine Corps’ 242nd birthday!
The Marine Corps has been at the forefront of our country’s defense and is at the point of the spear in every American combat engagement. If you meet a Marine this month, say Semper Fi and Happy Birthday!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On November 11, we celebrate Veterans Day.
Originally known as Armistice Day, it was created by an Act of Congress on May 13, 1938. It set the 11th of November of each year as a legal holiday to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and be known as Armistice Day, which was set in remembrance of the end of World War I. The Armistice was signed at 11:00 AM on the 11th day of the 11th month. In 1954, after World War II had required the greatest military mobilization in the history of the United States and following the Korean War, the 83rd Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word Armistice and inserting the word Veteran. With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became known as Veterans Day, a day to honor American veterans of all wars. We will forever be in the debt of our veterans as they are the guarantors of our freedoms. Let us honor them accordingly.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On November 24, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. The tradition of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving is steeped in myth and legend. Few people realize that the Pilgrims did not celebrate Thanksgiving, though some of their descendants later made a “Forefathers Day” that usually occurred on December 21 or 22. Several Presidents, including George Washington, made one-time Thanksgiving holidays. In 1827, Mrs. Sarah Josepha Hale began lobbying Presidents for the instatement of Thanksgiving as a national holiday, but her lobbying was unsuccessful until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln finally made it a national holiday with his 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation. Now Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of November. This was set by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 and was approved by Congress in 1941, who changed it from Abraham Lincoln’s designation as the last Thursday in November, which could occasionally end up being the fifth Thursday and hence too close to Christmas for businesses.

As you celebrate Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, please remember our troops who are serving in defense of our country in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Africa and many other overseas locations. For many of the troops overseas, their holidays will be celebrated at the tip of the spear as they fight for the freedoms we enjoy in these United States.

Also, keep in mind that the word “troops” now includes more members of the National Guard and Reserve than ever before. Today’s total military is over 50% National Guard and Reserve!
