It has been hard for me to see all the turmoil going on in our country. The democrats seem to be damaging our country by doing the second impeachment, letting rioters move freely in democratic cities, and pushing socialism.

That is my opinion, and you may think otherwise. That is the beauty of our country. We can disagree and not get shot like is happening in north Korea.

Sorry I missed my last post time. Been battling ailments that keep me struggling.

Things have gotten very interesting in the political world. We still aren’t sure who our next president will be.

There is a very crucial vote going on in Georgia. Two senate seats that wil decide who controls the senate are being counted. No confirmed winner yet, but if the democrats’ win both seats the senate will be in a tie. 50-50.

Then if there is a tie vote the vice president of the United States casts the deciding vote.

I have been reading lately about the heroic stories of our veterans, and current military saving lives even though they are not in combat.

I have a few examples here:

A marine saved a woman who was trapped in her car.

A soldier protected a woman during a riot.

A marine crawled out to a dog that was drowning because he broke through the ice at a big lake. He saved to the dog.

An Marine officer and two other marines pulled a man out of his eighteen wheeler. He was badly injured.

There are many more examples. I wanted to share a few to show that our military people are always on the alert to help others.

I am very close to sending it off to a publisher. I have the publisher picked out and they seem very interested as well.

I just need to do a few more interviews, and do some cleaning up in areas of the book. I am predicting that the book will be out by April.

There seems to be no let up in the turmoil we are facing right now.

The pandemic is having its way. The rioting is back, and people are on edge.

The pandemic is spreading very fast. In my home state of Oregon, we have over 1,000 virus cases each day. I am on complete lock down because of health issues, and that goes way back to last March. Nine long months of staring at the walls.

It alarms me that the people are rebelling against their governments, because they do not want to wear masks or go into shut down. They care only for themselves and no one else.

President Trump is having more troops come home from deployment.

That is very good news for the families. What a great timing for the holidays.

President Trump is in a up hill battle for the presidency. The democrats are all over him to concede. Being President Trump, that is not an option. He is battling until the outcome is really known.

I thought I would give you another excerpt from my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

This is an excerpt about a WWII veteran that lives right in my hometown of Salem, Oregon. This young man (Age 100) has a story to remember. I will share part of it and you will have to read the rest in the book.(This is call a hook. )

I was doing some grocery shopping when I noticed a guy wearing a WWII hat. I said “Thank you for your service.” He acknowledged my greeting, and we went our separate ways. I continued shopping and I saw him again. I asked him were he was while in the service. He said Okinawa. That was one of the hottest fighting spots during the war. We did some more chit chat, and then we parted ways again.

As I left him I woke up and thought, “Why didn’t you ask him for an interview?? I was kicking myself all the way to the checkout. I came around a barrier at the check stand, and there he was!!! I felt then that this interview was meant to be.

I asked him if I could interview for my book. He said, “Of course,” and he gave me his card. His card said Bob’s Hamburgers. I knew exactly what that place was, because I ate at that restaurant every day when I walked home from school.

I asked him where he got that card. He said, “It is mine!” I looked at the card again, and it said Bob Corey. I was speechless! This guy sold me a hamburger every day, and I even remember talking to him a few times. That was over 60 years ago.

We set up an interview and we went on our ways. I met with him at his home, and sat down on the couch with him. He couldn’t hear very good, so I had to speak louder.

I asked him where in Okinawa he was stationed. He said at the ship yards. He went on to say that they unload all the ships when they came in. He was a Captain and was in charge of a group of men who help unload the ships.

I stated that there were lots of bombing going on in that area. He said, “Oh ya, we had to scurry many times, because some of the planes were Kamikaze pilots.”

I asked him. “What was you worst moment?” He said, “I fell off one of the ships between the ship I was on and a barge that was very close. They both were swaying back and forth. I had to swim fast so that I wasn’t crushed.”

I then asked him what was the worst thing about being there. He said, “The never ending bombing. “

He went to share much more, but you be able to read it in the book.
