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.”

Here is the third day of sharing with you the chapter titles from my new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” The book is in the final stages, and I am wanting to get some excitement going for it. All you people who are veterans or current members of the military, plus all the families who are connected will really like this book.

It reaches out to those military who are suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, fear, deployment, self-doubt, and the many other usual suspects.

You can go back to the other pages that have chapter titles by scrolling down this page, but here are some new ones to try to hook you. 🙂

The Best Ships Are Friendships

Had a very rough ride on the U.S.S. Mitchell on my way to Korea for my deployment, but I made some good friendships on the way.

Loneliness in Korea

I didn’t know what loneliness was until I got to Korea. I was in another country thousands of miles away from home.

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

I saw death in Seoul, Korea. A woman starved to death on the street and no one cared.

Communications From Home or the Lack of It.

One of the most anticipated moments while deployed is the mail,unless you don’t get any.

Ee-li-wa Means Come Here

I got educated real quick on the language in Korea when I kept hearing the women in the village saying Ee-li-wa. (This part is rated PG.)

Skosh the Dog

Sometime rare in Korea is to find a live dog since they are a delicacy to the people. We had a dog and she had pups. What happened next broke our hearts.

Just One More Drink

This chapter tells my story of having my first experience of drinking alcohol in excess.  Somewhat funny, but not to me.

__________________________________________________________________________

I hope you are following along on finding out the topics that will be talked about in the book, “Signs of Hope For the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” Veterans and military people will get a lot of refreshing thoughts on how to cope in this not so friendly world, while in the military, and after separation.

In closing, I want all of you to remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And never, ever, give up!

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!
