Well, I missed my blogging date for yesterday. I am at the Oregon Coast relaxing. I will be here until tomorrow morning. It has been good for me to get away from the rat race for a few days.

I listened to President Biden’s question and answer session today. I actually thought he did pretty good for a “politician.”

He evaded several important questions to where they made no connection to the question.

The deadline to get troops out of Afghanistan is May 1st. When asked about it, he said, I can’t predict when we will exactly move them out. It is a big planning session to do it right.

My thoughts were that it was planned many months ago by President Trump. Why does it need a new planning session?

He was extremely vague about the immigration issue. He was asked when will the press be able to actually go see the area where thousands of children were placed? He pushed that aside and said that he wasn’t going to see them, because he felt it would be too much of a distraction to have him and all his agents, etc, to come. President Trump did it without much disturbance.

I could go on, but my point is that this president is not capable of answering questions directly. He avoids them with new thoughts from his own head.

I want to plug a social media site that I highly recommend. It’s not like all the other sites. It is for military people only.

It is called RallyPoint. There are close to two million veterans there. It is a wonderful way to find old military buddies, and talk military.

Just go to this site and sign up. It is free and the topics are always very interesting.

Got to think that the current administration for our country wants to have us do a U-turn and go in the wrong direction. They have closed all oil pipelines, causing gas prices to skyrocket. They are clinging to abortion and want to even expand it. They even said they wanted to get rid of cows, because the gas they omit pollutes our air.

I have never seen such a quick change in our country since the new president has taken over.

I am very alarmed that he may not be fit for the job. I heard him speak in just the last two days, and he doesn’t seem coherent. He loses where he is at in his speech. He forgets his own cabinet members names

He has opened to door to China to seemingly let them take control of our country.

This is an opinion of course, and I hope I am very wrong.

Here is another excerpt from the new book coming out called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

One of my most embarrassing times while deployed to South Korea, was actually on my day off. A courier who was make a run up to the DMZ area invited me to ride with him.

I was excited about the trip, because I had never been to the area.

On the way there we came through a rice patty area with hundreds of acres of rice.

The driver saw a papasan (old guy) carrying some human waste in the buckets that he had strung to a board and was carrying it on his back.

The driver challenged me to hit the nearest bucket to see what would happen. I felt I needed to do it to be accepted. (I know stupid.)

We got close and I stuck my arm out and flipped the man’s bucket. It spun him around and sent him to the ground all covered with human waste.

The driver laughed, and said, “Welcome to the club.!” I was instantly sorry that Idid and cussed out the driver for talking me into it.

He shouted back that the man was just a gook. No big deal.

I think about that trip even to this day.

I have much more on this trip in my book, Signs of hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of life.

It will cover what happened when I got to the DMZ, It was frightening, but fun at the same time.

Yesterday, I got my haircut in Waldport, Oregon.

It is a nice getaway for my wife and I at the Oregon Coast.

I was waiting my turn when my hair lady let me know that the guy she just finished with was the guy I called for an interview several months ago.

I was in shock. I had never met him in person. I went up to him and explained who I was, and he was excited to meet me.

He has a great story and it will be in my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

He is a vietnam veteran, and has a very funny story as part of his interview. I will give you a clue. It deals with a monkey.

Also, while I was there, my hair lady told me there was another veteran in the place. She pointed him out and I went to him to greet him.

He is a Coast Guard veteran. We do not give them the credit they are due.

I told him when I was in, and he said he was in 61-65. I was in from 59-62, so we over lapped. He got a little excited and said he was on alert for the Bay of Pigs endeavor. I told came him I was too. We became instant buddies.

He has agreed to do an interview with me and he will be in the book as well.
