I have two interesting military stories to share with you:
- The American Legion post 310 of San Diego, California, Has been giving out over 5,000 meals a week for children 18 and under. Also, on every Saturday starting at 10:00am the post hands out fruit, vegetables, and non perishable food. They even provide school supplies and back packs for local students.
- Mary Edwards Walker was the first and only Medal of Honor recipient during the Civil War Era. In 1916 congress created a pension act for Medal of Honor recipients. It caused greater restrictions on the eligibility requirements of rewarding the Medal of Honor. The Army reviewed all of the past Medal of Honor recipients, and 911 of them were stripped of their medals including Mary. The stripped soldiers did not have to return their medals, but they were taken off of the honor roll. In 1977 President Carter reinstated Mary’s Medal of Honor. Later she had a WWII Liberty military ship, the SS Mary Walker, named after her.
This shows that there is some good in this scary world. Good news is hard to find.
The “mob,” now wants several military bases renamed, like Ft. Bragg and several others. There is no end to their trying to pull our country down.
The Washington Red Skins are changing their name. They are under pressure from the same “mob,” I have mentioned.
Something that has struck me right in my heart is that my Alma Mater, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon are changing our cross state games from the Civil War to something else. I will for ever call it the Civil War!!!
Let me know how you are doing my friend.
Have you had a bad few days because of all the fireworks? I sat in my brother-in-laws back yard and watched WWIII going on before me. From 9 o’clock to 6 o’clock, as far as vision, there were big “bombs,” going off. The little dog that was there was very terrified, and shacking. These were not legal fireworks be any measure! They shook the ground, and were very loud.
I thought of all of our brothers and sisters who must have been hiding in their basements with the stereos turned up high. Very sad!
I feel for all of your who have PTSD, TBI, depression, anxiety, etc. Life is tough enough without this going on.
I was overcome with depression, in 2001 and was ready to check out of this hotel called earth. I somehow over came that and I am still here. I fought the battle and won.
You can too. GET HELP if you are struggling more than you can handle. Don’t think you are a sissy for getting help. There are those who think you should be tough because you are a veteran. That is a lie!
Here is the 24/7 help line to call if you need it. Please call it my friend, because you are my brother/sister.
