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 reaches 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 every day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics.

We have just added a fantastic product for people who are suffering from PTSD. I have looked at the video myself. It is a little long, but it is very valuable. Go to   https://sites.google.com/site/v4vweaponspackage/  to see for yourself. It will change your life if you suffer from PTSD.

Time to buy the firecrackers, get the barbeque heated up, and have a great family gathering. It is the 4th of July!

But…is that all the 4th of July really means? Is it just and extended weekend?

Many years ago in 1776, our nation broke away from depending on other countries, and formed our own, by signing the Declaration of Independence.  We decided to walk the path of life alone.

Our great nation has grown through the years. We have prospered, and have a good lifestyle.

The U.S.A. has many freedoms. We have many choices. However, we sometimes use those freedoms, to cause turmoil. We may be the most satisfied nation, but we also may be the most empty.

We expect the luxuries. We expect to be able to choose our own paths. We have become a self centered nation that is having storms within its borders.

Let’s change our thinking now to the men and women who have fought for us to get those freedoms and luxuries. We may well have been taken over by the enemy in past wars if it weren’t for our veterans who put themselves in harm’s way to assure us of those freedoms.

That is what the 4th of July means to me. It is celebrating our freedoms and thank those who have gotten it for us.

We need to give back to these heroes to thank them for their service in the military. That is where Bike 22 comes in. There is a national event that started today. Steve Durgin, the CEO of Victory for Veterans of riding his bike across the great nation of ours to bring awareness of our veterans and the sacrifices they have made. He is heading up the West coast, and then zig zagging his way across this country to end up in Washington D. C.

Steve will be coming through over 80 cities. He will be greeted by thousands of people. Why don’t you join him on his quest to help those veterans who may be suffering from PTSD, TBI, depression, homelessness, war wounds, etc. Show him you care. Show him you want to help out by riding with him or being at one of the events to show support. You can even donate right now on this site to help out.

Here is the information you need to get started. Click on the link and just do it:

I have been away for a little while due to some ailments. I am back and should be posting regularly again.

I have grown a ton of new military followers on Twitter and a new social network I joined a year ago called RallyPoint. It is a rare social networking that it is only military people that join it. If you want to join just us my link to check it out.

It has men and women from all branches of the military, all MOS, all ranks, and all ages.

I have connected with 2,400 veterans in a very short time, and have become close friends with many of them. If you are a veteran, I highly recommend this new social network just for veterans.

If you are feeling forgotten, and alone, as a veteran, please stay strong. I am here to support you. Please make a comment at the end of this post, so I can share thoughts with you. You are a valuable person of self worth. Don’t let the dark side sway you into thinking you are useless.

Always Remember:

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
