I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THE AFOREMENTIONED ON-LINE BLOG AND I AM PARTICIPATING IN THE ACTIVITY ENTIRELY AT MY OWN RISK. I REALIZE AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THE HOSTS ARE NOT MEDICAL DOCTORS WITH DEGREES, BUT MERELY OTHER VETERANS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS, CONCERNS, & SITUATIONS RELATING TO MILITARY LIFE. NONETHELESS, I ASSUME ALL RELATED RISKS, BOTH KNOWN OR UNKNOWN TO ME, OF MY PARTICIPATION IN THIS ACTIVITY. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Female Veterans Unite against any and all claims, suits or actions of any kind whatsoever for liability, damages, compensation or otherwise brought by me or anyone on my behalf, including attorney's fees and any related costs, if litigation arises pursuant to any claims made by me or by anyone else acting on my behalf. If Female Veterans Unite incurs any of these types of expenses, I agree to FULLY reimburse Female Veterans Unite.

To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this release is also for negligence on the part of Female Veterans Unite, its agents, and employees. In the event that I should require medical care or treatment, I agree to be financially responsible for any and all costs incurred. I am aware and understand that I should carry my own health insurance and to be prepared to use it if necessary.

In the event that any provision contained within this Release of Liability shall be deemed to be severable or invalid, or if any term, condition, phrase or portion of this agreement shall be determined to be unlawful or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of this agreement shall remain in full force and effect, so long as the clause severed does not affect the intent of the parties. If a court should find that any provision of this agreement to be invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting said provision it would become valid and enforceable, then said provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.
