It has been hard for me to see all the turmoil going on in our country. The democrats seem to be damaging our country by doing the second impeachment, letting rioters move freely in democratic cities, and pushing socialism.

That is my opinion, and you may think otherwise. That is the beauty of our country. We can disagree and not get shot like is happening in north Korea.

I told you in my last post that I was going to spend all this post talking about my new upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.


This will be a complete recap of my last post I did on the book, which was about a month ago. Since that time the subscribing has increased by 300 followers.

The Outline:

The first section will be about my basic training. Lots of wild stories some funny. Some not so funny.

The second section will about being deployed to Korea. Much sadness, but some good times.

The third section will be about my time at FT. Bragg just before I left the military. One very scary story there and more funny stuff.

The fourth section will be full of interviews. I will have WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq interviews. Many of these will be very sad, but honest. I was even able to get a couple of funny ones in.

__________________________________

It will be about 200 pages long. I start each chapter sharing my experiences, and then relate them to the reader. I have been working on this book for three years. Lots of research and making phone calls. Many of the interviews are from all over the United States. I am guessing I have about ten or more different states represented.

This will be a little short tonight as I am very tired today, and I need to get some rest. Still on lock down, and I don’t want to mess it up now that we see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So before I go, let me know how you are doing my friend? Do you see hope?. Do you see the light at the end of the tunnel?

If not, do not worry, there are over 10,400 fellow veterans here, and they all have your back.

BUT, If you are overwhelmed right now with what is going on GET HELP!

Here is a toll free number to call 24/7. There are highly qualified counselors there to help you. They will not hang up until they know you are OK.

I saw this report on Reuters. Not even thinking that this is a done deal. They have broken off from talks several times before.

KABUL (Reuters) – Afghan government and Taliban representatives said on Wednesday they had reached a preliminary deal to press on with peace talks, their first written agreement in 19 years of war and welcomed by the United Nations and Washington.

The agreement lays out the way forward for further discussion but is considered a breakthrough because it will allow negotiators to move on to more substantive issues, including talks on a ceasefire.

“The procedure including its preamble of the negotiation has been finalized and from now on, the negotiation will begin on the agenda,” Nader Nadery, a member of the Afghan government’s negotiating team, told Reuters.

The Taliban spokesman confirmed the same on Twitter.

The agreement comes after months of talks in Doha, the capital of Qatar, encouraged by the United States, while the two sides are still at war, with Taliban attacks on Afghan government forces continuing unabated.

I can certainly relate to this. I was Deployed to Korea.

Nov. 29—Even at 88 years old, Jim Valentine finds himself waking up at night and shifting positions in an attempt not to freeze.

“I would never have believed that you could live on the ground at 40 (degrees) below zero,” said Valentine, who 70 years ago this month was among the thousands of U.S. troops encircled by Chinese soldiers on the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. “You would sleep on one side until it froze, and then you would turn on the other side and rub it.

“I catch myself still doing it in bed today.”

It took Valentine, who signed up for the U.S. Army at 17 as a runaway hoping to escape the hard labor of picking cotton in California, several decades to talk about what happened during that attack that began Nov. 27, 1950. Recalling it now, 70 years later, still causes the longtime Cheney resident to pause, tears welling in his eyes.

“Personnel wasn’t that great. It wasn’t until ’51, ’52, ’53 did people start showing up,” said Valentine, who originally volunteered for what he understood was a “police action” in North Korea that exploded following that Chinese offensive into a full-scale war.

He cleared his throat.

“So much of that …,” he said, trailing off. “Sorry. It’s all coming back now.”

Thought I would show you some endorsements for my new book coming called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

_____________________________________________

Although Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Lifewasn’t written for men only, it brings honesty and openness to veterans, military personnel and men in general about feeling ok to express fears and emotional challenges in a difficult world.  US Army Retired Veteran, Mr. Douglas Bolton brings his personal stories to life in a way we all can relate to and gives a big “you’re ok” for revealing our shortcoming and encourages us to open up and talk.  A must read for those seeking healing and forgiveness from ourselves and those wanting a fresh look on life. 

Steve Durgin, Founder & CEO with Victory For Veterans Foundation.

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.

Colonel Dona Marie Iversen
