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.
This is a new social network just for veterans. I joined it and made instant friendships with veterans who want to talk about what I want to talk about. Please check it out. You will be glad you did.
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.
+ I am sharing some updated news to let you know what is going on in the veteran community.
One legally blind WWII veteran fought off assailants attempting to vandalize his American flag after destroying his “God Bless All Police” sign.
Howard Banks, a proud Texas veteran at 92 years old, reportedly heard noises outside his home and went to investigate after a string of vandalism previously resulted in the destruction of his American flag and Marine Corps colors.
Legally blind, Banks says he could not fully make out what the vandals were doing, but he quickly realized they could see him. Moments after he went outside, the vandals knocked him down.
“I turned and looked in the other direction, and about then – ‘wham!’ They knocked me down.”
Bank, a WWII veteran of the Pacific front survived Iwo Jima, is not deterred by the injuries, defending the flag is “the one thing I can cling to. Yet at my capacity, there’s not much I can do. But I can honor our flag.”
There seems to be an increase in this happening. A sad day in our country when we disgrace humanity by terrorizing these heroes.
Veterans: Fix – Don’t dismantle – VA System
A survey of 11,000 veterans shows that an overwhelming majority want to see the VA repaired, but not junked, or switch to private care.
92% wanted the deficiencies corrected.
5% wanted the VA dismantled.
2%were not able to categorize.
1% wanted Universal Health care.
This same group were asked if they noticed any improvement at their local VA.
41% said yes they noticed improvements.
38% said improvements still needed.
17 % said no improvements needed.
I will be putting up some interesting news like this from time to time. Let me know if you want this to continue by making a comment.
