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 will be reaching 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.

It is a new social network just for veterans. I am a member, and I made hundreds of new friends that have served our country. Try it out!

I just have been selected to be a board on a new nonprofit. It is called: http://www.victoryforveterns.org. I have thoroughly checked it out, and I feel it is a wonderful new help for veterans. Please go there and check it out. We aren’t able to take donations yet, but we will in about 30 days. That is how new we are.

You CAN like our page on Twitter at: @victoryvets. Please do that. It shows the world that we are for real, and the more that do, the more we will have donations when the time comes.

Victory for Veterans will be helping veterans with PTSD, anxiety, depression, fear, the homeless, and the many  other usual suspects. We will be handing out monies to other charities as well. That will be about a Million dollars per charity for 50 million each year.

How  will we get enough funds to do that. Can’t tell you just yet. (Because again we are not set up yet.) Keep close and check the posts here.

Veterans need our support. Some are homeless. This is a disgrace. They served our country and they put themselves in harms way. The least we can do is provide warmth, and shelter.

If you are a veteran who is struggling, please comment. I will personally find a way to help you.

There is always help for you 24/7 at: 1-800-273-8255

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have been away for a little while due to some ailments. I am back and should be posting regularly again.

I have grown a ton of new military followers on Twitter and a new social network I joined a year ago called RallyPoint. It is a rare social networking that it is only military people that join it. If you want to join just us my link to check it out.

 

www.rallypoint.com/join/spc-douglas-bolton

 

It has men and women from all branches of the military, all MOS, all ranks, and all ages.

I have connected with 2,400 veterans in a very short time, and have become close friends with many of them. If you are a veteran, I highly recommend this new social network just for veterans.

If you are feeling forgotten, and alone, as a veteran, please stay strong. I am here to support you. Please make a comment at the end of this post, so I can share thoughts with you. You are a valuable person of self worth. Don’t let the dark side sway you into thinking you are useless.

Always Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

The election is over in the United States, and we have another four years of the same  president. What does that mean to you? Are you happy or disappointed?

I personally had the worst time deciding who to vote for in my many years of being able to vote. It was difficult at best. The person I voted for didn’t win, but this is what I suggest to both sides:

  • It matters who wins, but it matters more that we pray for whoever wins. I will be praying that our president tries very hard to work with both parties, and come up with some solutions. The last four years have been fighting and bickering amongst themselves, and haven’t accomplished much of anything.
  • I  will pray for open minds, and understanding listeners. People who want what is best for their country and not what is best for their party.
  • I will pray for a president who seeks union amongst all people, and leads the fight to what is best for those forgotten in the trials and storms of life.

Think about what you feel you need to pray about and “just do it.”

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
