We are listening! I asked you to subscribe if you like having posts about the military, and the response was very clear. The subscription rate doubled this week from the previous week. That is telling us you want more posts about the military, so they will keep coming, plus updates on the book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.”
I told you yesterday I would be sharing the titles of my chapters, from the book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” (This is called a “hook,” in the writer business.)
Well, here are a few more chapter titles:
- Sometimes the Answers Are Available for You
I had a very stressful time trying to pass bed inspection in basic training until I learn a secret.
- Missing the Right Stop
On our way to Ft. Devens, Massachusetts we missed the right stop and went screaming by it.
- I was Almost Blown Away
No not by a grenade, but by a hurricane. We were stuck in a parade field.
- It’s Tough Being the New Kid on the Block
Sometimes you have to take the first step to be accepted by others.
- Stop Over in Okinawa, Japan
There was wall to wall bars, and ladies calling to me as I walked the street.
If the last chapter synopsis doesn’t get your curiosity up there is something wrong with you. Each of these chapters have some pretty amazing happenings in them, and are true. The life of a soldier isn’t all spent in a trench.
I found that out when I interviewed several veterans who had been there and done that. I interviewed some WWII veterans, Vietnam veterans, Korean veterans, and some current Iraq, and Afghanistan veterans. Their stories will melt your heart, and let you know that we should be proud of all veterans no matter where or when they served.
I want to thank all the veterans that have and are serving and remember:
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
