I am sitting on my patio doing my post today. We just had the patio extended by four feet, and that made world of difference. It is 70 degrees right now with a high of 91. I decided to get out early and do my posts before it gets too hot.


Military news…

About 70% of soldiers have received the COVID-19 vaccine, but some of the ones who haven’t may have baseless concerns about it. Three Army doctors took to a podcast this week to debunk some of the common myths about the vaccine, like whether it causes infertility, erectile dysfunction, or miscarriages. There is no evidence that the vaccine causes any of those issues.


The first 2,500 Afghans evacuated were the easiest to get out. What about the rest? There are still an estimated 70,000 interpreters and their families at risk of being killed by the Taliban, and the 2,500 coming to Virginia are “not nearly enough,” according to one expert.


An Air Force commander at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma took serious heat from airmen on social media this weekend for berating his crew when they decided not to fly a training mission in dangerous conditions. A recording of the commander’s speech went viral on Reddit and Facebook, where many airmen identified with “the push for a mission by those who aren’t putting their lives at risk,” as one airman said.


Two of the four soldiers killed during an October 2017 ambush in Niger have been symbolically inducted into the Special Forces Regiment to recognize their bravery during the hellish battle. Becoming an honorary Green Beret is an extremely rare honor reserved for those who distinguish themselves through their service to the Special Forces community.


No, Russia’s new fighter jet can’t fly at twice the speed of light, despite Fox News reporting to the contrary. While a Fox anchor likely made a mistake in saying that the upcoming Sukhoi Checkmate can fly faster than light and thereby break the rules of physics, who knows? Maybe the Russians have something up their sleeves.


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

Iriwaba Means Come Here in Korea

After I was in Korea for a while, I had time to go for walks in the village of Uigongbo, Korea. At the time it was a broken down village that didn’t seem to find any industry to support it. Today it is a thriving town.

I soon found out that the industry was prostitution. There were women of all ages waving at me and yelling Iriwaba.

Iriwaba means come here in Korean. These women were all trying to to entice you to come over to their little parlor and have sex with them for a fee. I was such a naive young man I didn’t respond for the first few trips there.

One night the guys decided I needed to get drunk and party. I ended up waking up and saw an elderly lady on top of me buck naked, and I was too. She was having sex with me, and I didn’t know it. As my eyes cleared, I saw she was eating an apple like I was one o the people she would please while she was on a break!

I was told she was a “Mommason,” A mommason is the boss of the prostitutes, and I was delegated to an old pro who thought she cut eat an apple while she was performing her act for me.

I asked her the fee. She told one of the guys paid it and the going rate was a cartoon of cigarettes. She said one cartoon of cigarettes, which was worth $2.99, would get her family enough food for a week. The cartons were a hot commodity in the “Black Market.”

I thought I would try to go out and “test,” the market one night. A mommason beckoned to to me to come into her shack. I thought she was the one providing the services, but she walked me into her bedroom, and lying on the bed naked was a little girl that couldn’t have been more then twelve years old. She looked very frightened and wouldn’t even look at me.

I was very angry and wanted to punch the mommason in the face. I left quickly.

Later learned that having so much sex in that village can be deadly. One of the soldiers, who bragged about being with a woman every night, caught some serious infection in his gentiles and eventually had to have them cut off to save his life.

That vision cured me of any other trips to the village for pleasure.

The experiences I had in Korea changed my life. Some of the experiences I am not proud of, but I learned so much in the thirteen months I was there.

With This particular lesson I learned is that something may look enticing, and could give you pleasure, but it also could be something that is very serious and could lead to a “dead end.”
