Military Haircut

Tiring of the same old buzz haircut from the base barber at Fort Dix, New Jersey, I went into town to get my haircut. The hairdresser noticed my
accent and asked where I was from.

“Trinidad,” I said.

“Is that in Arabia?”

“The Caribbean.”

She laughed, “Sorry, I never was very good at geometry.”

North Korea is an Information Problem Disguised as a Military Problem

In the year 2017, most of our national problems are information problems. And by that I mean having the right information would allow us to solve most problems.

Consider the nuclear threat from North Korea. That’s an information problem disguised as a military problem. 

I hope that statement seems wrong to you, so you will be extra-impressed when I change your mind in the next hundred seconds.

If the U.S. government tries to strongarm China to control North Korea’s nuclear program, that might cause more problems than it solves. No one likes a government-to-government confrontation of that type. China would have to push back. It could get ugly fast.

But imagine what would happen if American consumers knew which American companies were doing the most business with China. 

And imagine American consumers understanding that China can turn off the economy of North Korea, like a switch, any time it wants, thus controlling North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.

Now connect the dots.

If you treat the North Korean nuclear threat as a military problem, it becomes one. If you treat it as an information problem, with an economic variable, it becomes that instead.

I’m in favor of my government trying to negotiate an agreement with China, Russia, and North Korea. But if our leaders can’t get it done, I ask the government to get out of the way. Citizens can take care of this one directly.

All we need is some information.

I think that took me less than a hundred seconds.

Military Haircuts

The last few weeks have been particularly challenging for me. For the first time in years, I felt like giving up… then, I found my “second wind” to be human.

I wasn’t sure I was ever going to write this article. Recently, on the evening of September 18, I finally decided that maybe I should quit, to give up on everything and everyone: my family, my friends, my supporters, my court-martial appeal, and my other legal battles  —  even my articles for the Guardian and my Medium debut. Basically, I nearly surrendered.

You see, that evening I found out that the military was going to force me to keep my hair cut very short, to the “male” hair standard.

I didn’t take the news well. I felt sick. I felt sad. I felt gross  –  like Frankenstein’s monster wandering around the countryside avoiding angry mobs with torches and pitch forks.

I wanted to run away. I wanted to close the door to my cell, turn out the lights, and shun the world outside. I did exactly that. And then I cried, and cried, sniffled a little bit, and then cried some more. This went on until around midnight.

I wanted to cry myself to sleep on the concrete floor, but a guard came by twice and started asking me if I was okay. “Yes, I’m fine,” I said. I was not okay, though. It wasn’t his fault; he was just a young guy, maybe 20 years old, I thought to myself.

Then I started to think really dark thoughts. You know, “emo”-goth stuff, like “black isn’t dark enough of a color for me.”

After five years  —  and more  –  of fighting for survival, I had to fight even more. I was out of energy.

I called Chase Strangio, my ACLU lawyer, and I cried. As my legal counsel, he represents me in this lawsuit to challenge the hair policy that makes and treats me like a monster or a problem. But I just wanted love and support, and someone to cry to when I was feeling alone. He did such a wonderful job just listening to me.

After feeling devastated, humiliated, hurt, and rejected – and after wanting to give up on the world  —  I found my “second wind” of sorts.

I can make it just a little longer. I just hope it’s not too much longer.

I hope to use this platform as a place to document my experience and share my story and, maybe even begin a conversation. Going through such a seismic, existential shift in my life  —  transitioning in a military prison — presents real, meaningful, and daily challenges. I want to hear your thoughts and questions so we can continue to have a dialogue. I also look forward to reading the stories you are brave enough to share with the world so we can understand each other and define ourselves on our own terms.

Military Denies Chelsea Manning Permission To Grow Hair Out

Military officials on Friday denied the request of Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning to grow her hair in accordance with female grooming standards. 

The former intelligence analyst is serving a 35-year sentence at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, for providing sensitive documents related to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to WikiLeaks — actions her supporters say may have helped end the war in Iraq.

Manning, who was assigned male at birth but identifies as a woman, was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 2010. In 2014, the American Civil Liberties Union requested that the Department of Defense provide Manning with clinically recommended treatment, including hormone therapy, access to a qualified medical provider and permission to follow female grooming standards, according to an ACLU statement.

Manning said in a Friday tweet that she intended to fight the decision. She is able to use Twitter in prison by speaking with third parties, who transcribe her words and tweet on her behalf.

The military already agreed to allow Manning access to hormone therapy, speech therapy and cosmetics, but ruled Friday that she must cut her hair in accordance with male standards.

“Even though the military agrees that allowing Chelsea to grow her hair is a critical part of her treatment plan, they continue to deny her basic human and constitutional rights,” ACLU attorney Chase Strangio said in the statement. “When we filed our lawsuit a year ago, Chelsea had already waited more than a year for even minimal care to treat her gender dysphoria.”

Manning described her life in a men’s correctional facility in an April Cosmopolitan interview, where she noted that not being able to let her hair grow longer is “painful and awkward.”

In August, Manning faced indefinite solitary confinement over the infractions of sweeping food on the ground, possessing “prohibited” reading material — including Vanity Fair and the Cosmopolitan issue that featured her own interview — and having a tube of expired toothpaste.

Instead, she ultimately lost recreation privileges for 21 days. Strangio noted at the time, however, that the convictions would also show up at any parole or clemency hearings, and would force Manning to remain at a higher-security facility for a longer period of time.

EXCLUSIVE Look At Donald Trump’s Military Record In Light Of His Comments On John McCain

Pew pew pew! 

On Saturday, presidential candidate and Mexico’s favorite piñata Donald Trump made some particularly nasty comments about Senator John McCain over his POW experience. Trump said McCain is only a “war hero because he was captured.”

After considerable blowback, Trump remained firm, saying on Sunday that he will not apologize for the comments.

Here’s How Donald Trump Defended Questioning John McCain’s Military Record

AMES, Iowa – Donald Trump attempted to defend his controversial statements about  Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during a news conference Saturday — but things got heated when he started bickering with reporters.  

The real estate mogul-turned-presidential-candidate took questions from reporters following his comments at the Family Leadership Summit in which he questioned whether Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) was a war hero

In a fiery exchange with reporters, Trump raised his voice, often interrupting before a full question was asked.  At one point, he even yelled at one journalist, telling him to “go back to being a pundit.” 

“If a person is captured, they’re a hero as far as I’m concerned,” Trump said. “But you have to do other things also. I don’t like the job John McCain is doing in the Senate. He’s not taking care of our veterans.”

Trump went back and forth with reporters, trying to clarify his statements, but the businessman kept giving different answers as if there was some confusion.

“I like the people who don’t get captured and you have many people who didn’t get captured, I respect them greatly,” he said.

When asked about his multiple student deferments and a medical deferment, which allowed him to avoid service, Trump said “millions of other people” took the same option.

“I was going to college and got student deferments,” Trump said to a swarm of media. “It’s a long time ago, student deferments and ultimately a medical deferment because of my feet. I had a bone spur.”

Trump even went on to say he “wasn’t a big fan” of the Vietnam War and had many friends that served and many that also had student deferments.

“I wasn’t a protester, but the Vietnam war was a disaster for our country. What did we get out of the war other than death,” Trump said.

When asked if he would apologize to the Arizona senator, Trump refused.

News in Brief: North Korean Military Developing Parade Capable Of Traveling 5,000 Miles

ARLINGTON, VA—Drawing on satellite data and foreign intelligence reports, Pentagon officials confirmed Monday that North Korea was in the late stages of developing a military parade with an operational range of 5,000 miles. “With its current capabilities, the DPRK could, at a moment’s notice, deploy a lavish parade to the Japanese mainland or Guam, potentially expanding the reach of its festivities to the West Coast of the United States by year’s end,” said Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert O. Work, who explained that the communist dictatorship had bolstered its arsenal of massive full-color Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung banners, and that its top choreographers were drilling soldiers on how to maneuver in dazzling synchronized formations for maximum visual effect. “We estimate that by early 2016, several major U.S. population centers, including Seattle and Los Angeles, could be within their sights.

#DropAndGiveMe10 Viral Pushup Charity Challenge Raises Money For Military Families

You don’t need ice or a bucket to take part in the latest charitable challenge gone viral. The only prerequisite is a desire to help families of fallen men and women in uniform.

And some upper-body strength.

The #DropAndGiveMe10 challenge is heating up online, asking participants to both complete 10 pushups on camera and donate a chosen amount for each pushup toward the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. Those who complete the feat are encouraged to challenge three others to do the same.

What started as a small grassroots effort before Memorial Day took off once TV personality Bear Grylls of “Man vs. Wild” completed the challenge on May 23, Cynthia Kim, the foundation’s co-founder, told The Huffington Post in an email. Grylls passed the challenge on to the “Today” show’s Kathie Lee Gifford, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and NFL athlete Drew Brees.

Star power began getting the word out on the campaign as well as the foundation, which funds college scholarships for military children who’ve lost a parent in the line of duty. Gifford and Brees completed the task, along with a growing list of other celebs who’d been nominated, including Andy Cohen and Matt Lauer.

“We’ve been blown away by the reaction,” Kim told HuffPost, noting other media personalities like Jimmy Fallon, Meredith Vieira and Bill O’Reilly have been challenged. The videos have garnered millions of page views. “It is overwhelming to see the support for our mission through the pushup challenge and to know that so many of ‘our kids’ will be supported.”

I’m doing the #DropAndGiveMe10 pushup challenge – I nominate Kathie Lee Gifford Drew Brees & Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Posted by Bear Grylls on Saturday, May 23, 2015

Bear Grylls nominated Drew Brees for the #DropAndGiveMe10 challenge – and he, along with his kids, accepted!

Posted by New Orleans Saints on Friday, May 29, 2015

The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, which allocates funding for families of service members across all branches of the military, has provided more than $ 9 million in educational opportunities since its founding in 2002, according to Kim.

Kim started the foundation with her husband, David — a U.S. Army veteran — as a way to honor a young soldier in David’s unit who was killed in Panama in 1989. The soldier had been expecting a baby daughter, Kim told HuffPost. David’s concern for the fallen soldier’s family inspired him to launch the foundation years later.

The nonprofit fills a vital void in assisting such students in need, its website notes. Many aid groups, for example, only target specific military branches or units, and a lack of a centralized directory of organizations makes it difficult for families seeking financial help to find answers.

Funds raised through the challenge will help the foundation further bridge the gap between beneficial resources and the those who need them — a group of kids very worthy of the foundation’s help, according to Kim.

“Service, giving back, and selflessness is in their blood,” Kim explained to HuffPost of the children who benefit from the foundation, mentioning many of them are reluctant to accept financial help because they believe there are others who need it more than they do. “Their spirit of self-reliance and concern for others is so inspiring and it’s [a] testament to the values of their parents and all the men and women who serve in uniform.”

How One Mom Is Using Military Uniforms To Solve A Problem For Kids With Autism

When Crystal Lyons’ toddler son John was diagnosed with autism in July 2014, the South Carolina mom looked into buying him a weighted vest — a therapy tool that can have a calming effect on children with autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and other special needs.

Lyons was disappointed to find that the weighted vests she came across were out of her price range, and insurance wouldn’t cover the cost, she told The Huffington Post. With the help of her drill sergeant husband, the mom came up with a solution. “I told my husband, ‘You know what? I bet I could use all those uniforms you have, and a sewing machine just costs 100 dollars,'” she said in an interview with USA Today.

vests

After teaching herself to sew, Lyons created a weighted vest for John. “[It] helps him cope through situations where he is feeling overly anxious or unsure,” she told The Huffington Post. “The vest helps him calm down so he can focus on his therapy or what he is learning in school.”

Though research about the effectiveness of weighted vests varies, many occupational therapists and parents find them to be helpful for kids with special needs. Roseann Schaaf, a professor and chair of the department of occupational therapy at Thomas Jefferson University told Today, “The jury is still out. Most of the studies are small samples and need to be replicated.” She added, “Just because it works for this child doesn’t mean it’s going to work for your child … every kid with autism is very different.”

Seeing the positive impact the weighted vest had on her son, Lyons was inspired to make more vests for more children. Thus “Vests for Visionaries” was born.

vests

To create the vests, Lyons disassembles donated military uniforms. Then, she reassembles them as weighted vests incorporating the child’s interests and favorite colors into the design by adding patches and new fabrics in the lining. The mom does not weight the vests because every child requires a different amount of weight. “I recommend parents or therapists do the actual weighting of the vest,” she said, noting that she uses rolls of pennies to weigh down her son’s vest.

So far, Lyons has been able to donate vests to over 130 kids in the U.S. and Australia. “Sometimes the vests are referred to as ‘portable hugs’ due to the deep pressure having the same effect as a longer lasting hug and giving the same type of comfort,” she told The Huffington Post. “I think in general the vests provided by Vests for Visionaries also give a more ‘cool’ option for school aged children who may already feel self-conscious about their anxiety, autism, or sensory issues.”

vests for visionaries

For the first 18 months of John’s life, he developed normally. “He would interact with you, look you in the eye, sleep through the night,” she recalled. “He was speaking in small sentences, imitating, pointing, bringing toys and objects to us.” But then he started speaking less and less, and when his father went away for drill sergeant training, the 22-month-old stopped talking altogether. At the age of 2, John was officially diagnosed with autism, which his mom says was “devastating.”

“There were a lot of questions and worries like, ‘Will he ever talk again?’ ‘What are we going to do if we have to move and we have to start therapies over again?’ ‘How are we as a family going to work together to help him through this?'” But, after taking two weeks to let the diagnosis sink in, Lyons pushed ahead and hasn’t stopped working to help John and other kids with special needs.

When she started Vests for Visionaries, the mom’s goal was to “help children and families be able to have access to a therapy tool they may not be able to afford and to give hope to those families in a situation where they may already be feeling helpless,” she said. “I just want people to know not to give up after diagnosis and to know there is help and there are people willing to help if you just let them know.”

Military Almost Done Building Flying Dragons

Did you hear that the U.S. military is developing flying dragons that shoot laser beams from their eyes? They don’t say that directly, but you can see the parts coming together.

A drone is about halfway to being a flying dragon already. And recently the military tested a laser weapon that destroyed a truck at a distance. It is only a matter of time before the military miniaturizes laser weapons and puts them on drones.

I think the first generation of laser drones will look boring, like today. But eventually someone will say, “Let’s make the drones look like flying dragons that shoot laser beams out of their eyes!” Someone else will point out that a flying dragon will not be as aerodynamic as a normal drone. But that is a small price to pay for the coolness of it all. Just think of the bragging rights.

North Korea: “We have developed long range missiles with nuclear warheads. Death to the Americans!”

U.S.: “We have ten-thousand flying dragons that feel no pain and shoot lasers from their eyes. They are permanently circling your country looking for anything that leaves the ground. On the plus side, just point to your hibachi and we’ll light it for you from the sky. Oh, and our satellites are seeing an irregular mole on your back. You should see someone about that.”

In the long run, I expect we will develop a robot army, including drones, to create a virtual fence around ISIS-held territory. The robots would kill anything with a heat signature that came within a mile of the border. And the drones might be able to jam all communications in the area too. I would be amazed if the military is not working toward that containment strategy. The dragon part is a bit less likely.

But as someone said in the comments, waiting for ISIS to self-destruct is a good option too. As the movement succeeds, it attracts people who have slightly different views until the whole thing becomes like the American Congress that can’t get anything done. Good luck with that, ISIS.

My post today was boring, but luckily my blogging partners did better.

Vivian Giang explains why men are better than women when it comes to the workplace. (Expect a twist.) I buy every part of her post, as it is based on studies and the obvious. But in an upcoming post I plan to have a link war to figure out how everything Vivian describes can be true at the same time other studies show no pay differential after you adjust for experience. I believe both assertions even though they are in direct conflict. What is up with that?

In other news, a company created a frickin’ car with 3D printers. What????

And a Berkeley-related start-up has an app that could alleviate a lot of poverty. How do you ignore that?
