I am here to tell you that starting today, I will be changing the format a little. I will be talking more about my new up coming book to get you “hooked.”
What I will be doing in this post is to tell you why I even started writing the book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.
I am a veteran, and veterans are very close to my heart. I am on a National Board called Victory for Veterans, Inc. Check our website at: www.victoryforveterans.org.
While being on the board I began to see the need to help veterans even more when I saw this statistic: Twenty two (22) veterans committ suicide every day. Not every year, month, or week. EVERY DAY!
That was very sad for me. This veterans served their country and were placed in harm’s way. Things overwhelmed them and they ended their lives.
I decided I needed to reach out to try to help these veterans. I began my book about two years ago.
Why is it taking so long?
I need to make sure it is accurate and that I have some quality interviews. (More on that later.)
The book is divided into four sections:
- Basic training
- Deployment to South Korea.
- Ft. Bragg.
- Interviews with veterans.
You have read a few of my interviews and you can see the pain and hurt many of our veterans have.
The first section talks about my time in basic training, and it is full of humor and how i survived. Each chapter tells you about one of my adventures, and then share how you ccan be better if this has heppened to you.
The second section is about my time in Korea. It is not nearly as humorous. There were things that happened there that was hard for me to write down. One flash look is that I lost a buddy there.
The third section was my time at Ft. Bragg North Carolina. I had one very scary day there.
The fourth section is full of interviews from veterans. That is the part I am still working on.
