Our president is at war

He is under attack like many of our deployed soldiers are. He is fighting back with all his might. All the democrat’s are trying to get him to concede. They know if he keeps fighting he will win. We have to have his back, like any other brothers or sister veterans and current military are getting.

The outcome of this election will decide our countries path for many years to come. It is either America first and free, or socialism. Think about each choice. Which one would work best for you?

The rioting is coming back

Thousands of Trump supporters came to Washington D. C. to show their support for our president. It was totally peaceful until the Antifa attacked them. Many people were Hurt, and many arrests.

If our president some how gets reelected, I know he will move in and clear out these ruthless idiots. They are control areas because the democratic governments are allowing it. Every sate there is rioting is controlled by the democrats.

What is wrong with this picture?

What a week I have had.

My back went belly up on me last Saturday, and I have been suffering ever since. I am taking Tylenol to help.

Today I went to have a blood test done. I turned to go into the parking lot, and I was amazed to see at least a hundred cars lined up to get tested for the virus. There is panic here. In my county there have been many people coming down with the virus. The blood test came out great, and I got out of there as fast as I could.

There are other problems, but I am through whining for now.

Did you take advantage of all the free things for Veteran’s Day?

I hope you did. You certainly deserve it. I told you in a previous post that my Veteran’s Day day was being at the Oregon Coast. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the little town I went to was having a Veteran’s Day event. They were right across the street where I was getting a haircut.

I so wanted to join them. I could see all the American Legion hats, and they were hugging and really enjoying themselves. My haircut took too long and the event was over. However, it felt good to see such a small town gathering to honor our veterans.

___________________________________

I will share another excerpt from my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

I have chosen one about a Vietnam veteran that is from the same town that I got my heair cut at. It is the town of Waldport, Oregon.

He shared with me a story that was very positive and hard to find from soldiers of the ERA.

He said:

” I was sitting on the ground with a buddy, when I looked up into the trees. There were a bunch of monkeys up there playing around. I told him I would love to have one of those monkeys as a pet. ” His buddy said he would take care of that. He cut a hole in a coconut, drained all the milk out of it, and place a quarter inside it.

The Veteran then told me, “My buddy put the coconut out in the middle of an opening with a string attached to it. Sure enough the monkey’s saw the glittering of the quarter on the inside of the coconut and soon there were several nearing the coconut. One monkey reached inside to try to get the quarter out and my buddy yanked on the string catching the monkey with his arm stuck in to coconut. He pulled the monkey next to me and I got ahold of him..”

That started a long friendship with the monkey. The veteran even made a home for him to live in. It had a grass bed, food and drink there for him, and things were going great. The monkey really bonded with him to the point that he could let the monkey out and sit with him. He didn’t run away.

Well, some odd things started happening.

The other men were complaining that things had been stolen from their personal stash of food. Yes, it was the monkey. One soldier threatened to get rid of the monkey if he didn’t keep control of it. The monkey kept stealing food.

Then the other soldier had enough. He grabbed the money. He made a miniature parachute for him and threw him over a cliff.

The veteran was very upset that this had happened. He became depressed.

It was a couple days later, and as the whole group was gathered, this brave little monkey came strolling into the camp with the parachute still attached to him.

The veteran was ecstatic.

He had gotten his monkey back. I couldn’t get much more out of this brave veteran. This rest of his story was too sad for him to tell. I did find out that he was severely wounded, and received the Purple Heart. He ended up with a drinking problem, but overcame that with the help of his wife.

What roller coaster ride we are on right now!

We don’t know who is the next president yet. The pandemic is going crazy. There is still rioting. The word turmoil seems too kind right now.

_____________________________

We must always remember our brothers and sisters who are deployed.

I know the feelings they are going through. I was deployed to Korea in 1960. (Yes, I am old.)

Many are in trenches hunkered down. Some are going door to door to chase out the enemy. They are being fired upon, and are in harms way.

It is hard, at best, to think this is fun to do. They are stressed out 24/7. Never forget them. They are fighting for you and I.

I hope you have checked back in my posts.

The are many great things there are for veterans on Veteran’s Day. There is a whole post for restaurant deals, and another post for up coming veteran events.

This may be a very short post today.

I just had surgery on my left eye three hours ago. The strain of trying to type with one eye is starting to get to me. I had surgery on both eyes, and the right one is doing quite well. I can see so much better out of it right now. Hopefully the other eye will do as well.
