Doug Bolton, the founder of the blog, Signs of Hope, which is at www.dailysignsofhope.com, has written a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It will be reaching out the many military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, and the many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides ever day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics. Doug sent off his mini proposal to an agent who is very interested in his concept. We will update you when we hear more.

Time Doesn’t always Heal Wounds

Many people let personal wounds fester, and never attempt to clear it up with the person they are upset with.

F.E.A.R:

(1) Forget Everything and Run

(2) Face Everything and Rise

The Choice is Yours

Some people want to stick their heads in the ground and hide, while others face their fears and are victorious.

People Don’t Understand Me

This chapter is all about PTSD. It shares the symptoms and shares some ideas on how to cope.

Deployment Can Very Hard on the Family

Months of separation. So many times of loneliness. It all comes to a halt when they see their family again.

Marriage is Not a Four Letter Word

When there is a deployment there is a heavy strain on the marriage.

There is Sometimes Violence in Military Marriages

“Angry people want to see how powerful they are. Loving people want to see how powerful you are.”

Chief Red Eagle

Time to share some more chapter titles from the book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” You can scroll down this page to find some of the other  posts and other chapters that have already  been mentioned:

R & R In Tokyo, Japan

About half way through my deployment to Korea, I was given a week of “rest and recuperation.” I spent a week in Tokyo, and had a exciting experience trying to hold onto a belly dancers hips.

Do I Need to be Tough to be in the Military?

While working on hill 468 in Korea, I was injured by grabbing a hot manifold. I stayed on the job because there was no one to replace me.

There’s a Tear in My Beer Since You Left Me My Dear

Many soldiers received Dear John letters. I was one of them.

Really?

I was talked into to knocking a Korean farmer off the road on a trip to the DMZ while in a jeep.

I Was Heading to War

The plane had its engines revved up and was ready for take-off to the Bay of Pigs. I was heading into harms way.

White lightening In West Virginia

Back in the states I was on a field mission in West Virginia and we came across some local white lightening makers. It didn’t turn out to be very pretty.

Scars Only Show Where we Have Been,  but They Don’t Show Where We Are Going

So many soldiers battle the after effects of their time in the military. I encourage the readers to never give up.

No Reinforcements Coming

There are times when we felt we are fighting our battles alone.

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!
