‘Sexual harassment, has for too long, been seen as something you had to deal with as part of the job if you wanted to serve.

Scars Can Show Where We’ve Been, But They Don’t Show Where We Are Going

One of the hardest things for us as veterans and current soldiers is dealing with the scars we have had from the past. It may be a physical scar, or it may be mental or emotional. We can’t keep living in the past. Much of it is too painful to relive again. Yes, the present isn’t exactly rosy sometimes either, but it is here, and we need to deal with it. The one-day-at-a-time thought works for me. I just do what I need to do to make it through each day, and I am thankful when I have made it.

The future is something we can’t always control, but we can help shape it by being eager to take it on and conquering it with our determination and guts.

I feel deeply of those of you who have physical scars. I also feel deeply for those of you who have mental and emotional scars. I have been to the mountain with these kinds of scars.

Strive to never give in to the dark side thought of doom and gloom. Look for the bright side, and share it with others around you who need it as well.

This reminds me of Kris Kyle the sniper who was famous for his accuracy, and how many lives he saved by eliminating the enemy who was about to kill our soldiers. He was a tough and no nonsense kind of guy, and yet he lost his live trying to help a fellow soldier who was battling his own demons. Kris was trying to help others even though he had his own dark times.

Never give up! There may be walls in your way, but you will overcome them with perseverance.

Let someone pile expectations on and then exceed them. Your biggest goals in life become your biggest achievements. If you have discipline and drive, you don’t lose. You cannot lose. New ideas are sometimes scary, but can end up something special. Walls: They separate, divide, and isolate. But walls can always fall.

What we have to remember is that we have to go through the pains of life to achieve the joys. Pains actually inspire growth. 

I saw those words recently and at first I thought, Easy for you to say! Most people don’t know what real pain is. My neighbor recently complained she had double abscessed teeth. Knowing how painful that is, since I have had abscessed teeth myself, I thought about those military servicemen and women have lost their legs, arms, or are going to be in a wheelchair the rest of their lives. The level of pain is relevant to only what you are really going through.

We must always remember: With God on Our Side, who can be against us? No one!

IWILL

It is hard enough to exist in this cruel world without adding pain and mental strain to our lives. We need to battle the elements that attack us with vigor and valor, just like we would on the front lines, in the trenches, as we face the enemy. Stand strong and be brave.

Think about this

Isn’t it interesting how it takes bravery to face this world, but it takes even more bravery to give it all up to God?

What does the hit Netflix show “Squid Game” have in common with life in the U.S. military? Well, between the mind games, bad food, and a contract that sounds better than it really is, there’s quite a bit of common ground.

“If we truly want to honor our veterans this holiday then we must confront this history.” That’s from Army veteran Daniel Johnson, who wrote about something that is often overlooked on Veterans Day: the shameful way Americans have treated Black veterans over the years.

“We’ve raised our counterterror capability to an exquisite level. We’re going to sustain and protect that. The other side is harder to describe.” That’s from retired Army Special Forces Col. David Maxwell, who told Kevin Maurer all about the U.S. special operations community’s post-Afghanistan identity crisis.

Pentagon leaders have said for years that sexual assault is a top priority, but a new report confirms what critics have long said: It isn’t. The Pentagon is not providing enough trained investigators to handle a growing number of sexual assault reports.



The Army is testing autonomous drones that can deliver life-saving blood to battlefield medics in need.

“Another day; another dollar.”

That was a saying I remember from my childhood. Except they really meant it. A dollar went a long way back then. Now it costs way over a dollar just for a cup of coffee.

Over the years inflation has raised its ugly head. Now if you don’t make over the poverty line in the United States, you are in big trouble.

___________________________________________________

I just saw that Portland is still under siege.

Last night anarchist tore down two prominent statues. One was Teddy Roosevelt, and the other was Abraham Lincoln. Two great leaders from the past. Can’t be rioting for just for black people anymore when they destroy Abraham Lincoln’s statue.

It is just plain attempts to over throw our government to cause panic.

I think it is time to go in and clean up these messes once and for all. Bring in the National Guard, The Feds, or whom ever we need to end this nightmare.

Yes, they have President Trump losing

by double digits in the upcoming election, which is less than a month away by the way.

I am here to tell you that Trump will win in a landslide! No question about it. I have reasons why this will happen.

  1. So many voters are afraid to say they will vote for Trump, because of harm to be done if they do.
  2. Most of the polls are hand selected people that seem to be people who are anti Trump.
  3. Trump has been doing a great job. Why would anyone in the right mind vote otherwise?

These are all my opinions, but I am convinced I am right. We will know in a few weeks.

On RallyPoint…..

There is excitement in the air. President Trump is out to make our military stronger than ever. I saw many new missiles, rifles, tanks, and artillery that have been upgraded tremendously. For example: They now can have unmanned tanks guided by drones. No loss of life. These tanks are much faster; have stronger weapons, and thicker shells.

Another thing I noticed is that most of the RP members are Republicans.
