I know this isn’t much in the big scheme of things, but I’ve started tipping those who are still working to keep our society functioning (grocery clerks, the mailman, fast food window servers, etc).
Under California Education Code 92000 the University of California’s name, reputation, and assets are owned by the State of California. The Charter of the UC Regents Health Services Committee (HSC) is to protect the UC name, reputation, and other assets from abusive uses.
In the below video, one can see me asking HSC to calendar and vote to stop the UC name from being misused to promote a litigation defense argument, disguised as legitimate science, in the mold issue. I have asked that they do this to protect our military families from fraud, abuse and discrimination in the moldy military housing debacle via the multiple misuses of the UC name by several government-employed and private sector entities and individuals.
I am pleased to report that the Regents appear to be listening.

Five days ago, I posted a blog titled “PLEASE CALL Senators TODAY To Save Our Troops’ Families From the FRAUD In The MOLD Issue”. The gist of the blog is that a 501(c)3 nonprofit, Military Matters Foundation (MMF), is leading the charge to cause real and much needed legislative oversight of the Private-Public Venture (PPV) military housing landlords, their contractors, the DOD, and the military physicians.
On November 22nd MMF sent a letter to the 27 senators of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC). They requested that on this coming Tuesday, December 3rd, that the senators publicly ask seven important questions of the U.S. GAO auditor and the DOD leaders — who will be testifying before the SASC.
The basic gist of what the military families want answered, is:
1) why haven’t the senators, DOD, or GAO acted to stop the scientific fraud in the mold issue that began in 2002 and is used extensively by military housing landlords, DOD miseducated military physicians, toxic tort defense attorneys and others as false proof that the moldy military housing allegedly can’t cause brain injuries; and
2) why are the landlords and their contractors still not being mandated to follow industry standards that are purposed to safely maintain and remediate the military housing.
To encourage the senators to ask the key questions on December 3rd, MMF issued a Call To Action/Petition. What they want (and need!) is for the public and those with superior knowledge of the deep seated problems to support their efforts aimed to cause better legislative and DOD oversight of military housing, housing maintenance, and of military physician education.
IAQ Pros & Environmental Physicians Answer the Military Families’ Call To Action!
In 2016, environmental physicians and researchers were key in causing the military housing landlord, Lincoln Military Housing LLC, et.al., to be held accountable for negligent causation of brain injury — via meeting a courtroom standard burden of proof that moldy military housing can indeed cause debilitating cognitive dysfunction.
This weekend, the environmental medicine professionals answered MMF’s Call. They shared MMF’s Petition/Call To Action on their widely-viewed website, Surviving Mold. The environmental medicine professionals strongly support the need for military physicians to be properly educated of how to recognize, diagnose, and treat sick building related illnesses, including debilitating brain injuries.
Also this weekend, indoor air quality (IAQ) professionals answered the Call. MMF’s Call To Action/Petition may be read on the website of IAQ Radio. IAQ Radio is “the voice of the indoor air quality industry”. Over the past thirteen years they have created an extensive audio library of interviews with experts on the subject of the built environment and health. They are strong supporters that those who are maintaining and remediating the military housing be properly trained and made to adhere to the industry standards established by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
So….the answers of how to protect the military families from fraud, waste, and abuse in the military housing debacle are already there. What’s missing are the questions from senators and answers from the GAO and DOD re: who is not providing adequate oversight which enables the fraud to rage on, and why this is being enabled to continue?

CALL OF ACTION!
Military Matters Foundation
Nov 26, 2019 —
United States military members and their families are being made direly ill from their contaminated military housing. Adding devastating insult to injury, they are not getting medical help from the military physicians that they need in order to recover.
On November 22, 2019 we sent a letter to the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee members asking for clarification of why military physicians are not being properly trained to treat military personnel and their families’ disabilities caused by substandard military housing; and why no one appears to be moving to correct this problem. Reuters has deemed it an “Ambushed at Home”.
We only have a few days before the next U.S. Senate Hearing on December 3rd regarding this problem that is devastating military families and weakening the strength of our military.
Please help us flood Armed Services Committee senators with calls and emails in support of the need for questions to be asked of why military physicians are not being trained how to diagnose, treat, and cure the military-housing-caused illnesses.
Will you make a phone call or send an email to senators to make this nightmare of insult to already devastating injury for our military families end?
It’s easy to do. Takes no time at all. Just open this link to https://www.themilitarymatters.com/ and follow the directions.
Thank you. Military Matters Foundation Team
