Retired Navy SEAL Jason C. Redman Joins The Blue Star Veterans Network as Head of Staffing

Decorated Veteran to Bring Vast Experience to Helping Better the Lives of Veterans

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - June 30, 2014) - The Blue Star Veterans Network, dedicated to helping older veterans live safe, healthy and independent lives in their own homes, today announced that retired Navy SEAL Jason C. Redman will join the company as the Head of Staffing. LT Redman will report to Rear Admiral (ret) Robert O. Wray, Jr., CEO of the Blue Star Veterans Network. In his new role, LT Redman will help Blue Star hire and employ wounded warriors and service-disabled veterans to serve in meaningful positions within the company.

"As a proud veteran, I am looking forward to joining the Blue Star team to help make a profound impact 'for Vets, by Vets'", stated LT Jason C. Redman. "I am passionate about supporting Admiral Wray's vision to provide products and a service for our Vets and their families to make their lives more comfortable as they age."

"We're delighted and privileged to have a hero like Jason on our team," stated Admiral Robert O. Wray, Jr., CEO of The Blue Star Veterans Network. "His energy, dedication, and experience will help us as we work to improve the lives of our older veterans."

LT Jason C. Redman is currently the Founder and Executive Director of Wounded Wear, a non-profit organization designed to provide clothing kits and clothing modifications to America's wounded warriors. The organization's mission continues to focus on promoting awareness throughout the country of the sacrifices that wounded service members have made in the name of freedom.

LT Redman joined the Navy in 1992 and spent 11 years as an enlisted SEAL. In 2006, Redman graduated from the US Army Ranger School and deployed to Fallujah, Iraq, the following year. In 2007, while acting as Assault Force Commander to capture an Al Qaeda High Value Individual, LT Redman's Assault Team came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire and he was severely wounded in the ensuing firefight. While recovering at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, LT Redman hung a bright orange sign on his door, which became a statement for wounded warriors everywhere, and which eventually led to a meeting with President George W. Bush in the Oval Office. After 37 surgeries and retirement from the Navy, he now speaks across the country using his positive attitude to motivate others and raises the awareness of the sacrifices of America's military forces and their families. His personal military decorations include the Bronze Star Medal with Valor and the Purple Heart, along with many others.

The Blue Star Veterans Network is dedicated to helping older veterans live safe, healthy and independent lives in their own homes via multiple proprietary technology products. The technology will integrate hardware, software, processes and a human monitoring/assistance team to help vets and their families live free and independently.

The Blue Star Veterans Network has also launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funding to continue to develop the integrated technologies that will provide comfort for the over seven million aging vets that populate our country. Please visit Blue Star CrowdFunding  to learn more.

The company has put its focus on the veteran - as Blue Star is owned by veterans, services veterans and employs veterans. In addition, the company's "20% Giveback" program donates profits to veterans, particularly homeless veterans.

The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
