I listened to a very disturbing interview with Joe Biden. I actually like the guy, but he went too far, and I will not be voting for him in November.

In his interview he stated that it would be wrong to call up the military to help in the rioting. He said they would be called the enemy.

This is a man who wants to be the president of our country? He just lost many veterans and current military.

What he said was not one of his senile slips like he has become famous for. He was very clear and to the point.

I AM NOT THE ENEMY!!

Should We Use the Military in the Riots?

It’s Monday, and most people don’t like Monday. I look at it from a different angle.

  1. I am retired.
  2. I have time to do whatever I want and when I want.
  3. I able to write to you in this site to share hope.

I saw that president Trump wants to send in regular Army troops to end all the rioting. The Secretary of Defense feels that is wrong. I tend to agree with him. Why should our brothers and sisters be put in harm’s way. It should be up to the mayors and governors to straighten this mess out.

Notice that where all the rioting is occurring are run by Democrats? Enough said.

What should we do?

I would love for you to make some comments on this in the comment area at the bottom of this post. I will be excited to read them and respond.

I am going to share another interview with you for my new book, Signs of Hope for the military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

This one may be a repeat as I have been sharing many interviews. I think that this interview is extremely important:

I was driving home and felt hungry. I saw a Carl’s Jr, (Hardy’s) and stopped. I got my order and was heading to my table. I walked by a Vietnam veteran. I knew he was a Vietnam veterans by the hat he was wearing.

He look in pain

As I watched him eat, he seemed to be in pain. He shifted many times trying to get comfortable. He finished his meal and was walking (struggling) to the garbage can. He had walk by me to get there, so I asked him if he wanted to sit down and talk.

He looked like he didn’t want to do that, but I told him I was a veterans like him. He decided to sit down.

He had much mental pain

He sat down and we chit chatted for a while. Then I started asked him some questions. I wondered what he did in Vietnam. He said he was on a ship off the coast of Vietnam. He want on to say That his ship was a helicopter ship. They were taking supplies to the troops; picking up wounded, and sending supplies to the villages that were starving.

We talk for a while long and then I asked him what was the worst moment for him in Vietnam.

He said that his best friend was a pilot of one of the helicopters. His friend was ready to take off with his co-pilot. They said it was a go, and the helicopter began to rise and head out. Immediately there was engine trouble the copter started wavering. Then it crashed into the ocean and sunk very fast. They never even tried to recover the bodies, because the water was too deep.

That was very devastating to him.

We talked a little more, and I asked him one more question:

Was there another time you felt upset and sad?

He said it was when his planed landed and the soldiers had to walk through the terminal. There were people on each side of the terminal cussing at them. They called them killers. They spit on them. He felt disgraced.

We finished talking and did a shoulder hug. He actually smiled as he walked out the door. I could see him hobbling along as he went to the near by hotel.

This tore me up badly. This man was a hero and people treated him like dirt. We owe the Vietnam veterans so much.

(I will be sharing much more about this veteran in my book. He shared with me why he was so hobbled and in pain.)

Outline of the book, Signs of Hope for the military

I am here to tell you that starting today, I will be changing the format a little. I will be talking more about my new up coming book to get you “hooked.”

What I will be doing in this post is to tell you why I even started writing the book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

I am a veteran, and veterans are very close to my heart. I am on a National Board called Victory for Veterans, Inc. Check our website at: www.victoryforveterans.org.

While being on the board I began to see the need to help veterans even more when I saw this statistic: Twenty two (22) veterans committ suicide every day. Not every year, month, or week. EVERY DAY!

That was very sad for me. This veterans served their country and were placed in harm’s way. Things overwhelmed them and they ended their lives.

I decided I needed to reach out to try to help these veterans. I began my book about two years ago.

Why is it taking so long?

I need to make sure it is accurate and that I have some quality interviews. (More on that later.)

The book is divided into four sections:

  1. Basic training
  2. Deployment to South Korea.
  3. Ft. Bragg.
  4. Interviews with veterans.

You have read a few of my interviews and you can see the pain and hurt many of our veterans have.

The first section talks about my time in basic training, and it is full of humor and how i survived. Each chapter tells you about one of my adventures, and then share how you ccan be better if this has heppened to you.

The second section is about my time in Korea. It is not nearly as humorous. There were things that happened there that was hard for me to write down. One flash look is that I lost a buddy there.

The third section was my time at Ft. Bragg North Carolina. I had one very scary day there.

The fourth section is full of interviews from veterans. That is the part I am still working on.
