Veterans Small Business Association Foundation

Small businesses are the foundation of a vibrant economy. Despite the current tight business climate, there is help for veterans seeking to start their own business:

Veterans Small Business Association Foundation (VSBAF.ORG) was founded by Rallie P Rallis of Seal Beach, California, in January 2013, as a mean to help those who serviced our country.

Rallie is a ex-Navy officer who served in the Civil Engineering Corp. In addition to his naval career, he is a published author, business coach, internet marketer, and real estate investor, with over 50 years of business experience, in manufacturing, marketing, and business building.

Rallie Rallis has experience leading Seabees. Let him help you. (Although, if I were writing his website as his websmaster, I would add an s after Corp. And the line those who serviced our country should read those who served our country. I am, after all, a language nerd. And I service websites.)

Update: Courtesy of NavyDavy, this site is a possible scam. Tread carefully when getting serviced by VSBAF.

Navy Seabees Rescue Family

Live in California for any stretch of time and no doubt you have driven Highway 101. It hugs the coast and has truly beautiful scenery. It was also the scene of a nightmarish accident:

A Navy construction crew passing by the scene of a horrific wreck joined forces with emergency rescue workers to keep a mangled BMW carrying a California mother, her 10-year-old daughter and 10-week baby from slipping off a bridge and plunging into a 100-foot deep ravine.

The vehicle dangled off the bridge Thursday after being rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, which broke through the concrete barriers and fell into the creek bed. The truck driver was killed.

Santa Barbara County, Calif., Fire Department rescue workers had been trying to pry Kelli Lynne Groves and her children out the car when the Navy Seabees were driving by with their equipment.

The Seabees motto is: Can Do. And they did. . .
