                 Second Request for Discussion
		 -----------------------------

NAME:      soc.veterans

STATUS:    unmoderated

CHARTER:   For socializing between veterans of military service, and
	   the discussion of social issues relating to veterans.

Background:
           
    On March 9, [email protected] (Larry W. Jewell) posted the
    first RFD for this group. Although he originally called for the
    creation of "talk.veterans", he has since agreed that "soc" is
    probably a better hierarchy for the group. There was also a
    discussion of creation of a veterans group over in "alt", the
    proponents over there have agreed to wait for the outcome of a
    vote for a mainstream group. Although the group will be primarily 
    concerned with the issues relating to US veterans, some issues
    relate to veterans of all countries. Posters will be encouraged
    to limit distribution of articles relating to US-only issues via
    the use of the "Distribution: us" header.
