Veterans like me sacrificed a portion of their life for all of our freedoms. They should know that their business can benefit from being a government contractor.

I am the wife of a marine stationed at MCB Camp Lejeune City of Jacksonville. Also my son will be enlisting any day now. I would like to build or buy a "rehabilitation / training facility" (defined as a facility engaged in the treatment of substance abuse patients and/or restoration of handicapped persons to useful life through education and therapy) in the Residential-5 zoning district, and allows a "family care home" (defined as a nonprofit housing facility licensed by the State that provides room and board, personal care, and rehabilitation services in a family environment for not more than 6 residents with disabilities) in all residential zoning districts, provided it is not within 500 feet of another family care home.

Located in the Jacksonville area, which is closest to the base and the medical facilities and job opportunities it offers, and is served by a bus transit system (Onslow United Transit System (OUTS)- 910.346.2998, outs@co.onslow.nc.us).

This "rehabilitation / training facility" will be for our "Wounded Warriors". Some are not ready to start living in the civilian world. This "facility" will allow them to prepare for their transition from military to civilian. It would also help get them jobs.
I would reside in this house and act as administrator.

The facility will compliment existing hospitals and therapeutic centers and serve primarily as a comfortable home for those who qualify.

Also Wooran's Network Development is aware that the United States of America. distributes a number of grants for the purpose of international peace and security, by helping to reduce the dangers posed by the development, stockpiling, and proliferation of the world's most destructive weapons, in particular nuclear weapons, dangerous pathogens, and new biotechnologies. We wish to apply for one of the grants.

We would like to launch a new program for education on International Peace and Security, including a computer training center, where our "Wounded Warriors" can assist American families in being better prepared for unlikely emergency scenarios . The Department of Homeland Security's has stated that they know from intelligence reports that terrorists are working hard to obtain biological, chemical, and radiological weapons, and the threat of an attack is real.

There is clearly a need for better organized and integrated factual reference systems on the Internet.


Since September 11th Wooran's Network Development has been researching databases of international relations and security. We have tried to get our results out to the general public.

I am pleased to write to you about a project that I believe will be of interest to you. We are seeking $2,158,000 over three years to expand our very successful (Technical Education) program to provide aggressive, hands-on computer training and national emergency education programs in our city.

We are seeking support from the State to enable us to develop a pilot public awareness program and demonstrate its soundness and effectiveness to the city, community development agencies, and local private funding sources for future funding of the long-term program.

We ask for your partnership because of the State's demonstrated interest in organizations engaged in international issues, including peace and security, conservation and sustainable development, population and reproductive health, and human rights. To education and youth leadership development, especially for those from the underrepresented minority communities.

We critically need funds to launch this sorely needed "rehabilitation / training facility", fund the equipment, software, and the resources of two teachers to oversee and assist the volunteer student educators. This equipment and support resources will constructively assist the undereducated minority residents to be served by our new community service program.

We have already raised an initial investment of more than $30,000 in absolutely necessary computer equipment toward a computer systems, training and services budget of more than $3 million. We have worked hard to bridge the gap and anticipate receiving grants and donations from private sector sources, banks, foundations and private donors.

Despite our general fund raising efforts, our program budget is far from balanced. Cuts in government financing continue, with more expected, especially those affecting our clients with incomes below poverty level.

Undaunted, we are an organization committed to excellence, with a clear vision and a passion for delivering outstanding results. We ask you to work with us to capitalize on our growth and these strengths.

Over the years the State has proven the effectiveness of youth leadership development and community-based programs. The State has helped to demonstrate that community outreach programs which are developed and managed by a community for a community make a striking impact. With the partnership of the Government, our young leaders "Wounded Warriors"will bring vital education and critically-need training skills to their neighbors, family members and peers, and, in so doing, will effect positive change in their own communities.

Also our students and teachers will assist in support of research and training to strengthen public policy advice on the scientific and intellectual infrastructure of international security policy through an ongoing project engaged in creating a federated system of individual databases at different geographical locations, accessible through a single integrated user platform.

The objective is to offer professionals in the field and in related sciences, such as researchers, politicians and the media, an organized authoritative and structured factual reference system. The integrated database system will contain high-quality, up-to-date and clearly documented information covering many areas in the field of international relations and security, such as hard facts on states and international organizations, statistics, chronologies and data on, for example, conflicts, arms transfers and military expenditure. I believe that "information-sharing is a powerful positive good, and that is an ethical duty of all IT professionals to help.

Whether we are in a state of Peace or War.

The challenge at this stage is to seize the opportunity, to take the risk, to realize an innovative, new, rewarding and productive future. With the strength which has made us and the program what it is today, the choice is an easy one--help our community meet the challenges of Terrorism and Counter terrorism facing us today, while helping our "Wounded Warriors" at the same time.

The need for effective computer training and education cannot be overstated. The technical training requirements of our community are overwhelming and mirror the needs of most other inner-city populations. The program is ready to be launched as a national model for all inner city community organizations everywhere for building a future, uplifting individuals, creating self-sufficiency.

Thank you for your support and assistance to us, and the community residents we serve. We look forward to your consideration of our request and the opportunity to submit a formal proposal for your review. We will be pleased to submit additional information at your request. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (704) 200-7522.


I have been giving this much thought. My youngest child will be enlisting any day now. I have been a stay at home mom for 25 years.
I have plenty of time now and I want to help our "Wounded Warriors"


If anyone can give me some advice on making this dream a reality I would appreciate it.


Thank you,
