I would like to use this forum to write about a great article I recently read regarding Medicare in Colorado. It goes into detail about the 5 Steps to Prepare for Medicare if you are still working. My insurance agent works with Medicare Colorado, and if you are eligible for Medicare and live in Colorado, you should definitely give them a call or stop by a seminar.
Excerpt from the book Beware the Wolves
A haze of smoke and dust filled the early morning air. Only two houses remained on Slava’s street in Vitebsk– her parents’ and the next door neighbor’s. All others had been burned to the ground. The residents had fled. Before leaving, a neighbor warned Slava and her family again of their huge and dangerous mistake in staying in Vitebsk and not destroying their house. He cautioned them that they would be arrested by the Soviets for disobeying orders and be tried as traitors when Vitebsk was reclaimed. That is, if they survived the Nazi occupation. His advice troubled young Slava, who had just yesterday seen terrified Jews being plucked out of government buildings and forced behind wire fences.

Behind the Story of Beware the Wolves
More viscerally powerful and inspiring than fiction, Beware the Wolves depicts the overwhelming, and often cruel, odds faced by survivors of the Nazi occupation. Set amidst the terrifying and unexpected Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, it is an enduring tribute to an extraordinary young married couple who risk everything, including their lives, in order to be reunited. Even life-threatening circumstances cannot stop Vladimir and Slava Moskalkov from putting their love for each other first and taking perilous steps to be reunited after an agonizing separation. Vladimir Moskalkov, a medical doctor serving in the Soviet army, is taken prisoner of war by the Nazis. It is a daily ordeal marked by starvation, thirst, physical exhaustion, torment, life-threatening illness and constant degradation. He watched his war buddies struggle to stay alive, most of them eventually shot to death by the Nazis or destroyed by disgustingly inhumane conditions. Only Vladimir’s astonishing will to live and see his lovely young wife again keeps him from being one of the 2.8 million prisoners-of-war who perished during the first eight months after the Nazi invasion.
