Combat Wounded Veterans Challenge Working to Help Save the Florida Coral Reef

Coral Reef

The Today Show recently featured a truly inspiring segment on a group of wounded veterans who have found a new special purpose in working to rebuild the coral reef in the Florida Keys.

The vets, all of whom have lost limbs or suffered traumatic brain injuries, are part of a support group called The Combat Wounded Veterans Challenge .

The Combat Wounded Veterans Challenge is working in conjunction with biologists from the Mote Marine Laboratory to plant Staghorn coral in an underwater nursery. When the coral has grown large enough, the vets are then transplanting it onto the reefs. In just the last two years, veterans participating in this project have helped to plant more than 1,000 corals.

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

ADA 25th Anniversary Logo

July 26, 2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the passing of the ground-breaking Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The ADA was created to ensure equality and accessibility for all individuals with disabilities. The ADA was a collaborative effort of Democrats, Republicans, the legislative and executive branches of the government and federal and state agencies.

Among the mandates of the ADA are that employers may not discriminate against individuals with disabilities when it comes to hiring and/or promotions, if the person is otherwise qualified for the job. In addition, employers, as well as other public accommodations, (i.e. restaurants, hotels and retail stores), must make their facilities accessible to those with disabilities. Accessibility can be achieved through the installation of wheelchair ramps, automatic doors, accessible restroom facilities etc. The ADA also mandates that individuals with disabilities have access to public transportation.
