Like most scams, the grammar is poor, it is not on official letterhead, nor does it come from a valid Army e-mail account. CRSC will never ask for personally identifiable information to be sent over e-mail due to security concerns. CRSC will never promise payment or award of any kind. CRSC is not eligible for SBP. As Ambassadors and Affiliates, the program office wants to ensure you are aware of the scam in case you are asked about it.

Unless our Congress acts within the next 14 days, MEDICARE and TRICARE payments to doctors will be cut by 10.6% in July of 2008. If that comes to pass your access to health care will be much reduced because more doctors will stop seeing MEDICARE and TRICARE patients.
In addition to cutting payments to doctors, hundreds of thousands of MEDICARE patients will lose coverage for their physical, speech, or occupational therapy unless Congress fixes the MEDICARE law within the next two weeks.
Sometimes I do not understand why people think the way they do! Why does the public think they know better than trained professionals?
Would you tell your dentist how to fill a cavity?
Would you tell your doctor how to do a heart operation?
Would you tell your eye doctor how to do an eye exam?
Of course not, your not trained how to do the exams and operations properly.
Then why does the public think they can tell law enforcement how to do thier job. Recruits receive 6 months of in house training, 1 year of on the street training, and everyone receives additional inservice training 2 times a year.
Every day is a training day because Mickey the Mope is out to scam you anyway he can. He does not follow a book of rules . . . only his book of rules to make you a victim. And the crime stats out for Milwaukee indicate there are more victims each day of the week.
Some of you readers have no clue what it is like working the streets and the danger inherit with the profession. I did it for over 25 years and each year became more violent than the year before it. People will kill you for a pair of shoes. I have been to murder scenes because people fought over a lousy 40 oz beer! People killed over shoes, furniture, drugs sales gone bad, and a number of other crazy situations.
Think about it - opinions are one thing - reality is another.
Let law enforcement do their job. Our community will be a safer place because the coppers are willing to risk their life for YOU and your family.
The Silent generation, people born before 1946.
The Baby Boomers, people born between 1946 and 1959.
Generation X, people born between 1960 and 1979.
Generation Y, people born between 1980 and 1995.
Why do we call the last one-generation Y? I did not know, but a caricaturist explains it eloquently below...Learned something new!
