Started keeping track of new subscribers on June 1st. On that day we had 8,093. Today we are up to 8,224. What a wonderful increase. I am so honored to have all of you here.
My last post I shared with you the outline of my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.
It is a good post to go back to if you are new.
Tonight I thought I would share with you some of the outstanding endorsements my book has been receiving. I will only share a couple tonight:
Most of us are fortunate not to have experienced the stress of combat. Words cannot adequately define the grinding daily pressure of knowing that every time you step outside the gate the enemy will try to kill you and your buddies. You are constantly alert, on point; but how can you protect your team from the instantaneous blast of the IED? You are part of a highly-trained team poised to execute, but what has prepared you for the mental toll of being on edge every moment. The skills that helped you survive….have taken a toll and are now working against you when you return home. What do you do now; where do you turn? Whether you are dealing with PTSD, TBI, depression, homelessness, or recovering from wounds; Doug Bolton has answers…..this book has answers!

Although ‘Signs of Hope For the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life’ wasn’t written for men only, it brings honesty and openness to veterans, and military personnel 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 shortcomings 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.

There are many more. I will share some in future posts.
How are you doing? Are you struggling? Do you find situations where you are actually afraid?
You certainly are not alone. I was there, and over 8,000 followers here have been with you.
What can we do to overcome the darkside, that wants to torment us? The most important thing you can do, my friend, is get help. I know, it is hard to admit that you need help. You are a tough military veteran Right?
Never fall for that. I got help. I am here because of the help. I was near self imposed death at one time. That was in 2001.
Here is your life line of you think you need it. It is 24/7.
