I don’t know about you, but I have been getting overwhelmed with all that is going on around me. The Pandemic is still strong. The rioting is still going on, and the wild fires are getting wilder.

Makes it for stressful times.

It reminds me that we may have been in a spin cycle in our own washing machines!

It is about this time I start shouting, “Let me off of this hotel called earth!”

I just hunker down, and face the storm. I recall back to my military days when you knew you couldn’t leave your posts. Defend no matter what.

Presdident Trump is still in the hosptial as of the lastest news I saw.

We need to pray for his quick recovery. What made me spitting mad is that the democrats started attacking him for not wearing a mask. This came from Nancy Pelosi who walked out of her hair day at a salon without a mask. Double standard???

They again have been attacking him for not liking the military. Couldn’t be further from the truth. Any military veteran or current service members know the truth.

They also think he won’t condem the KKK, White Supremist and others. He has condemed them openly at rallys, and interviews.

I would like to talk about my new book coming out again:

It is called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.”

I just have a few interviews left to do and I am done. I have a publishing company that is very interested.

Here is another endorsement from a high ranking female military person:

Signs of Hope for the Military: in and Out of the Trenches of Life, is a must read book for any military, which are hurting from PTD, TBI, anxiety, depression, etc. It has extensive valuable and doable suggestions for successful cope mechanisms. I have also enjoyed Doug Bolton sharing his own stories about his time in the military. He shows that he has been there and done that. This makes him very qualified to offer his advice, guidance and support.  

I applaud Doug for his insight and wiliness to share. I know you will too.

I am switching my thoughts to my up coming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In an Out of the Trenches of Life.

I am going to give you the outline again. It has been awhile since I last did that:

  1. The first section will stories from my basic training. This will have humor, some tense moments, and proud moments. At the end of each chapter I will be sharing thoughts on how you and I can survive in the not so firendly world as civilians.
  2. The second section will have stories from my deployment to Korea. It also will have some humor, tense moments, and unfortantly some very sad moments.
  3. The third section will sotries from my time at FT. Bragg. again, a little humor, but a few very scary moments.
  4. The last section is my favorite part. It is full of interviews from veterans who have been there and done that. Some of these stories are very scary, sad, humorous, and fansicnating. I have WWII, Korean, Iraq, Vietnam, and Afghanstan, interviews from soldiers.

I am going to share you an interview today. It is about a WWII veteran who had a near death experience.

I will name him in the book, but not now.

He was in France and he and four of his buddies were pinned down. I mean really pinned down by enemy fire. You can think about trenches to hide in, but these poor guys could only lay flat in furrows. Those are what is left after a plow comes through. If they stuck up any part of thier body they were dead.

My friend heard something coming up behind him. It was the tank Corp. They pulled over the top of him; opened the hatch, and pulled him in. They did that with the other four buddies as well. They didn’t know heroes had their backs.

________________________________________________________

I hoe you are getting excited about this upcoming book. It is perfect for all veterans, and even current military. It will give you hope and answers. Some of the chapters talk directly about issues:

  1. PTSD
  2. TBI
  3. War wounds
  4. depression, Suicidial thoughts
  5. People left behind after deployment
  6. Much more

_______________________________________________________

There will be a great index as well. It will be full of places to get help for any of your issues.

_______________________________________________________

Now let’s talk about you. How are you doing my friend? Is the world spinning too fast? Are you having a hard time coping? You are not alone. There are over 9,485fellow veterans here who have your back.

If it is just too overwhelming, GET HELP!

Here is a toll free number to call. They have highly qualified counselors there to help you. They will not hang up until they know you are OK.

Had a very intersting weekend. Went and stayed in Portland for my niece’s wedding. Yes, that is the Portland that has had 101 straight days of rioting. Well, we hit it lucky. The smoke from the wild fires in Oregon was so thick, the rioters were too cowardly to come out and play. Of course they were back in full force today.

Ted Wheeler, (Weak Man) the mayor of that city, told the Portland Police they couldn’t use tear gas anymore because it was too harmful. So the Federal Agents protecting the Federal buildings used it instead. I love it!!

I know this all sounds wee bit harsh, but people have died; businesses have been destroyed, and many police were hurt.

Thought I would share a couple of jokes to cheer us up. We can really use it.

  1. People who think times heals everything haven’t sat it out in a doctor’s waiting room!
  2. What do you call an apology with dots and dashes, re-morse code.

Just got an email from a Sargeant Major from Vermont a few minutes ago. He is battling COVID-19, and he lost his wife to it August 30th. Sad to hear one of our brothers is going through so much pain. Be strong my friend and get well.

I am hanging strong for President Trump. This man loves the military, and people are tryng to quote him as saying the military are, “suckers, and losers.” DIDN”T HAPPEN!! They are getting desaparte because the polls are tighting fast. Trump will prvail and our nation will grow even more than it did.
