> KELLY HAS A REPUTATION

FOR

DISCIPLINE AND TASKED WITH

BRINGING

NEW WATER TO THE WEST

WINNING.

AND THERE IS MORE

INFORMATION FROM

THE PRESIDENT AS HE

ENCOURAGES THE

PRESIDENT TO COME UP WITH A

PLAN

DESPITE THE FAILURE TO COME

UP WITH A

REPEAL FROM OBAMACARE LAST

WEEK.

THAT'S WHY HE SAYS, LOOK,

SENATE,

DO YOUR JOB.

TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY IS

ONLY 6

MONTHS OLD BUT ALREADY

FACING MANY

CHALLENGES. NOW MORE THAN

ANY OTHER,

HE NEEDS KELLY TO HELP HIM

SUCCEED .

> VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT

CELEBRATES

ANOTHER WIN.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED THE

COUNTRY TO

VOTE YESTERDAY ON A

CONSTITUTIONAL

ASSEMBLY TO ALLOW HIM TO

REWRITE THE

CONSTITUTION AND OVER RIDE

CONGRESS.

VENEZUELAN ELECTORAL

AUTHORITY VOTED

FOR THE ASSEMBLY BUT

OPPOSITION

LEADER SAYS THAT IS CLOSE TO

2 OR 3

MILLION. THEY ARE URGING THE

VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT TO

PROTEST AND

THIS HAS LED TO AN ARREST

WHICH LEFT

THOUSANDS DEAD.

> AIRPORT OFFICIALS IN

AUSTRALIA

INTERRUPTED A PLOT TO

DISRUPT AN

AIRLINER IN AN ATTEMPT TO

BRING DOWN

AN AIRCRAFT.

LEBANESE AUSTRALIANS HAVE

NOT BEEN

CHARGED.

GOVERNMENT IS RELEASING NEW

DETAILS

THAT WOULD HAVE AN EXPLOSIVE

DEVICE

WITH A TOXIC GAS TO KILL

EVERYONE ON

BOARD. THE BOMB WAS

CONCEALED TO BE

CARRIED INSIDE ORDINARY

KITCHEN

EQUIPMENT. AUSTRALIAN

> RECENTLY PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND

VLADIMIR PUTIN ORDERED A

CEASEFIRE

AGAINST SYRIA. SOME ISRAELI

LEADERS

BELIEVE IT PRESENTS A CLEAR

AND

PRESENT DANGER TO THE JEWISH

STATE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DISCUSSED

A

CEASEFIRE IN THIS EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING

TO

HAPPEN. AFTER SPEAKING

SHOOTING

AGAIN, THIS IS HELL AMONG

ALL OTHER

CEASEFIRE THAT THEY HAVE

BEEN NAMING.

SO THAT WAS A GREAT THING

THAT CAME

OUT OF THAT MEETING.

BEHIND ME YOU CAN SEE THE

ISRAELI

BORDER BEHIND ME WHICH IS

COVERED BY

THE CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT. BUT

ACCORDING TO REPORTS,

NETANYAHU

DOESN'T AGREE WITH THE

CEASEFIRE.

ONE TOLD THE DAILY NEWS THAT

IT

CREATES A SOUTHERN -- IN

SYRIA AND

DOESN'T INCLUDE THE SPECIFIC

WORK

FROM THE SHIITE MILITIA IN

SYRIA.

THE REGIME IS THE BORDER

OF THE

PENINSULA.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE

POTENTIAL DANGER

THAT CAN COME FROM THE

AGREEMENT.

THE CEASEFIRE COMING WITH

THE NEW

POWER WOULD WITHDRAW THE

SUPPORT

COULD BE PAVING THE WAY FOR

REGIME

AND RUSSIAN AND IRANIAN

ACHIEVEMENT

IN THAT AREA. THAT'S THE

MATTER OF

CONCERNS.

FINALLY IT'S BUILDING A

LAND

BRIDGE ACROSS THE MIDDLE

EAST.

IT HAS A CORRIDOR ALL THE

WAY

ACROSS IRAQ AND THEN ACROSS

SOUTHERN

SYRIA AND THEN OF COURSE YOU

HIT

ISRAEL AND THEN THE

MEDITERRANEAN

SEA. IT'S THAT AMBITION.

IT'S THOSE AMBITIONS THAT

PUT

ISRAEL IN GREAT DANGER.

AND IF THE WE GO TO WAR

WITH

LEBANON AND A CLEAR LOGICAL

LINE.

IT COULD RUN ACROSS THAT

LINE AND

INCREASE THE DIMENSIONS

POTENTIALLY

OF A FUTURE WAR BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND HE

HEZBOLLAH.

CHRIS MITCHELL.

ISRAEL.

> A FASCINATING DISCOVERY

IN THE

MIDDLE EAST COUNTRY OF

LEBANON. TURNS

OUT ARCHEOLOGIST FOUND THE

BONES OF

FIVE PEOPLE WHO WERE CANNON

ITS FOUND

TO BE ABOUT 400 BC.

THAT THE ANCIENT PEOPLE WERE

THE

ANCESTORS OF THE LEBANESE.

THEY WERE

VERY SIMILAR TO THE PEOPLE

LIVING IN

LEBANON TODAY.

COMING UP, A TERRIBLE

CASE OF PTSD.

SEE WHAT'S BEING DONE TO

BATTLE.

WITH THE CONCERNS OVER

AMERICAN

VETERANS SUFFERING FROM

STRESS AND

COMMITTING SUICIDE, THE

PRESIDENT IS

PROMISING TO TREAT OUR

MILITARY AS A

TOP PRIORITY AND GETTING

THEM THE

HELP THEY NEED.

LYNN'S STORY IS ALL TOO

COMMON. 27

YEARS WITH THE U.S. ARMY, A

BRONZE

STAR RECIPIENT, MISSION

AFTER

MISSION, TOUR AFTER TOUR.

I HAD A FEW TOURS IN

BOSNIA AND

IRAQ.

HER FIRST TOUR IN IRAQ

THEN

SOMETHING HAPPENED.

SOMEONE BROKE INTO MY

ROOM AND

SEXUALLY ASSAULTED ME.

SHE RETURNED AND DIDN'T

TELL A

SOUL.

IN JUNE MY SON AND I HAD

A BABY

BOY. HIS NAME IS BRYCE.

HER LIFE WENT ON AND SHE

BEGAN TO

TAKE A JOB AND RAISING BRYCE

AND

TRIED TO IGNORE HER ANXIETY

AND

DEPRESSION.

SHE NEEDED A ROUTINE IN HER

LIFE TO

KEEP THINGS GOING ON A

REGULAR BASIS

WHICH HELPED HER AVOID

STRESS BUT

THINGS TOOK A TURN.

MY ROUTE WAS OUT OF

CHARACTER AND

OUT OF ROUTINE. AND I WAS IN

A

STRESSFUL SITUATION. I DROVE

RIGHT

PAST WHERE I MAKE A LEFT TO

DROP MY

SON TO DAY CARE.

I WENT TO WORK AND MADE A

STOP THAT

MORNING AND WENT TO DROP MY

HUSBAND

WHICH WASN'T NORMAL. I

THOUGHT WEAR

-- WE'RE GOOD TO GO AND

LATER THAT

DAY THEY ASKED ME HOW BRYCE

WAS DOING

AND WENT TO THE CAR AND

THAT'S HOW I

FOUND MY SON.

EVEN THOUGH IT WAS ONLY

66 DEGREES

THAT MARCH DAY, THE

TEMPERATURE IN

THE CAR WAS HOT ENOUGH TO

KILL AND

BABY BRYCE HAD DIED.

SHE WAS TRIED AND CLEARED OF

MEDICAL

-- AND SHE WENT TO DOCTORS

TO SEE

WHAT CAUSED HER ANXIETY. SHE

WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE

COMPLEX POST

TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER.

SHE SAID

THAT PTSD LED TO HER

INABILITY TO

CAUSE HER TO RETURN TO HER

NORMAL

LIFE.

PTSDZ AFFECTS EACH PERSON

DIFFERENTLY, FOR SOME

ANXIETY AND FOR

OTHERS FORGETFULNESS AND

SUICIDAL

THOUGHTS.

WE ARE SEEING VETERANS

TAKING

THEIR LIFE.

THE DOCTOR OF CEO BASE

RATE, A

NON-PROFIT HELPING THOSE

WITH THIS

DISORDER WHICH HAS CLAIMED

SO MANY

LIVES.

OUR TRAINING ANSWERS TO

CALLS.

AND VETERAN HEALING.

IT DEALS TO AN EMOTIONAL

STATE,

EMOTIONAL FEELING, AN MOTION

OF

GRIEF, SOLITUDE, WHY ME, WHY

THEM?

WHY NOT ME AND THEY CAN'T

OFFER THAT

VETERAN THAT SOLUTION. YOU

HAVE TO

FIND THAT SOLUTION THROUGH

THE LORD,

THROUGH GOD.

BUT THAT REST AND OTHERS

LIKE IT

CAN'T HELP THE VETS ALONE.

HE SAYS HE

IS WORKING TO OVER TURN THE

REGULATIONS THAT LET CERTAIN

VETS

SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS.

AND CERTAIN VETS THAT

THEY LEAVE

THEM WITHOUT BENEFITS.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

SAYS IT'S

CRACKING DOWN ON THE

DYSFUNCTION AT

THE VA AND VETERAN SUICIDE

IS A

CRITICAL PRIORITY.

IN JUNE PRESIDENT TRUMP

SIGNED A

PROTECTION ACT TO MAKE IT

EASIER TO

GET RID OF BAD EMPLOYEES AT

THE VA.

IN THE MEANTIME, VETS

WILL

CONTINUE TO FEEL THE GAPS.

THEY SAY THAT GOD DOESN'T

GIVE US

MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE. AND

BOY, I

THINK IF THAT'S THE CASE, HE

THINKS

THAT I AM THE STRONGEST

PERSON ON THE

FACE OF THIS EARTH, BUT I

THINK WE GO

THROUGH THE EXPERIENCES THAT

WE DO TO

BECOME TEACHERS.

SHE'S MADE IT HER NEW

MISSION TO

WARN PARENTS ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF HOT

CARS AND WARN THE WORLD

ABOUT THE

AFFECTS OF PTSD.

IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW

SUFFERS

FROM SYMPTOMS FROM PTSD, YOU

CAN FIND

RESOURCES AT GETTING HELP AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

UP NEXT, THEY SERVED IN GUAM

AND THEN

TWO MILITARY VETS ARE LIVING

IN A CAR

WITH THREE CHILDREN. SEE

WHAT'S BEING

DONE TO HELP THE OTHER

40,000

HOMELESS VETS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

BACK.

THEY SACRIFICED THEIR

LIVES FOR

OUR COUNTRY BUT THEY CAN'T

AFFORD A

PLACE TO LIVE WHEN THEY COME

HOME.

THAT'S A HARSH REALITY FOR

MANY VETS

AND THEIR FAMILIES. NOW THE

VETERADMINISTRATION IS

WORKING TO

CHANGE THAT. AND HOW MANY

MORE LIKE

THAT CAN PREVENT THIS

CRISIS.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TO DO.

AT THE AGE OF SIX,

CHRISTIAN HAS

ACCOMPLISHED MUCH MORE THAN

FIRST

GRADE.

THE HELP OF HIS PARENTS,

CHRISTIAN IS

NOW AN AUTHOR, RADIO HOST

AND

COCREATOR OF THE CHILDREN'S

WEBSITE

BUT IT'S NOT BEEN AN EASY

ROAD. JUST

1 YEAR AGO, CHRISTIAN LIVED

ON THE

STREETS WITH HIS PARENTS.

MILITARY

VETERANS WHO FELL ON TOUGH

TIMES

AFTER SERVING IN AFGHANISTAN

AND

GUAM. IT WAS AN EXPERIENCED

CHRISTIAN

WROTE ABOUT BEING 5.

IT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

DO I GIVE UP? ALL MY TOYS.

WE COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH

THE RENT.

WE WERE SELLING OUR RINGS IN

ORDER TO

KEEP THE LIGHTS ON.

HIS MOTHER SUFFERS FROM

LUPUS. A

DISEASE THAT FORCED HER TO

UNDERGO

SEVERAL SURGERIES AND BLOOD

TRANSFUSIONS THAT LEFT STEP

FATHER

GARY, A 12-YEAR VETERAN, A

SOLE

PROVIDER. HE COULDN'T BRING

IN ENOUGH

MONEY AND THEY EVENTUALLY

LOST THEIR

HOME.

IT'S A PREDICAMENT LEAVING

TO TOO

MANY VETERANS.

IT'S NOT THE SAME.

YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR OWN

MEDICAL,

YOUR OWN DENTAL, YOUR

GROCERY BILLS

ARE GOING UP, THOSE THINGS

CHANGED.

YOU PROBABLY HAVE SEEN

THEM IN THE

STREET UNAWARE THAT THEY

ONCE FOUGHT

FOR YOUR FREEDOM.

TODAY THEY ARE FIGHTING

ADDICTION,

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS AND

ECONOMIC

HARDSHIP.

AT FIRST IT WAS HARD. WE

WERE BOTH

HAVING TO SELL ITEMS.

HE SAYS HE WAS SCARED AND

HOPELESS.

WE ARE IN A POSITION

WHERE WE HAVE

TO BE HOMELESS. YOU DON'T

WANT THAT.

NOBODY WANTS THAT ESPECIALLY

WHEN YOU

ARE HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD AND

YOU WANT TO

PROVIDE FOR YOUR FAMILY. IT

WAS HARD.

IT WAS JUST AS HARD FOR

THEIR

THREE BOYS.

IN SCHOOL, THOSE DAYS, WE

DIDN'T

HAVE MONEY TO BUY THEM

ANYTHING ELSE.

WE COULDN'T GET SCHOOL

SUPPLIES AND

GET THEM WHAT THEIR FRIENDS

DID.

WE COULDN'T EVEN CHARGE UP

OUR PHONES

BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE

ELECTRICITY.

VETERANS WHO ARE HOMELESS

MAKE-UP

TO 76,000 IN THE STREETS

WHICH IS

CLOSE TO 40,000, WE SEE MANY

PREPARED

TO LEAVE IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN. IT'S A

CAUSE THAT IS DRIVING THE VA

TO BE

MORE STRATEGIC. THE GOAL IS

TO PLACE

VETERANS IN PERMANENT

HOUSING BUT

FINDING A HOME FOR A FAMILY

IS

DIFFICULT. THEY SAY

ORGANIZATIONS ARE

STEPPING UP TO HELP.

THE VA IS VERY COMMITTED

TO ENDING

HOMELESSNESS, BUT WE COULD

NOT DO IT

ALONE.

IT REALLY IS A COMMUNITY

ISSUE AND

WORKING WITH COMMUNITY

PARTNERS,

HOMELESS AGENCIES AND THE

COMMUNITY

CHURCHES REALLY COMING

TOGETHER I

THINK HAS BEEN A REASON FOR

THE

SUCCESS THAT WE'VE SEEN.

GARY AND NICKISHA BELIEVE

GOD

HELPED THEM TO PROVIDE FOR

THEM.

THEY PAID TO PROVIDE THE

HOUSE AND

DEPOSIT AND RENT, THEY

BOUGHT TREES

FOR THE KIDS AND GIFTS FOR

THE KIDS.

THIS WAS AROUND

CHRISTMASTIME AND WE

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN, BUT IT

CAME TOGETHER ALL SO

BEAUTIFULLY. WE

JUST HAD TO TRUST GOD AND WE

DID.

I BELIEVE IT HAPPENED FOR A

REASON.

GARY AND NIKISHA NOW WORK

AT THE

VA. THEY WANT TO PAY IT

FORWARD BY

HELPING OTHER VETERANS

GETTING BACK

ON THEIR FEET.

I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE

WHEN YOU

DON'T KNOW WHERE YOUR NEXT

MEAL IS

GOING TO COME FROM.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

AS FOR HER SON,

CHRISTIAN, HE'S

ENJOYING THIS NEW CHAPTER IN

HIS

LIFE, BEING 6.

CHARLENE AARON. CBN NEWS.

WOW, IT'S SO SO YOU HAD

AND SO YOU

SURPRISING TO SEE HOW OUR

VETERANS

WHO DO SO MUCH FOR US ARE

SUFFERING.

IT'S WONDERFUL TO SEE THE

PEOPLE OF

FAITH GIVING THEM THE HELP

THEY NEED.

WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL

SHOW YOU HOW

THE KIDS FROM MEXICO ARE

ENJOYING

CLEAN WATER.

STAY WITH US.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING

CHILDREN IN PUEBLA MEXICO

GET SAVE

DRINKING WATER. BECAUSE OF

THE

BACTERIA THEY HAD IN THEIR

WATER

BEFORE, THE KIDS WERE

DRINKING HIGH

CALORIE SUGARY DRINKS AND

MEXICO HAS

THE HIGHEST CHILDHOOD

OBESITY RATES

IN THE WORLD.

BUT THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING"

THEY HAVE SMALL HELD DEVICES

TO

REMOVE BACTERIA AND PRODUCE

SAFE

WATER. THESE KIDS HAVE A

MUCH

HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE NOW

THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING".

THAT'S IT FOR CBN NEWSWATCH.
