Doug Bolton, the founder of the blog, Signs of Hope, which is at www.dailysignsofhope.com, has written a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the many military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, and the many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics.
This is a new social network just for veterans. I joined it and made instant friendships with veterans who want to talk about what I want to talk about. Please check it out. You will be glad you did.
I am a member of RallyPoint. It is a “social network,” That is for veterans only. It is not a small new start-up. There are over 500,000 members and growing fast.
Why is it growing so fast? It is because a veteran can go and talk to another veteran who understands them better than anyone else. They can “spill,” their guts out and know they are safe with the friends they know and trust.
I have made over 4,000 connections, and many are becoming close friends.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because you may be feeling lost and alone as a veteran. You can become a part of RallyPoint, and have many people who will support you and have your back.
I often go to the discussion page and rant about my woes, and frustrations. Usually I get positive replies, and sometimes an old drill sergeant tells me to stop crying and move on. I need that also once and awhile.
I encourage you, if you are a veteran to check out the network at
Just try and check it out.
You can do many things with it. You can put in your hobbies and they will show you all the people who have the same hobby. You can put in your unit while you served, and they will locate all those who were in the unit as well. You can put in your rank and be friends with everyone who has the same rank.
All branches of the service are there including some civilians who have family connections to a veteran.
