When I reported the last time there was a war going on in Portland, Oregon. Well, it is still going on. It has been 103 straight days of rioting.

Governor(Do nothing) Brown ordered the State Police to come and stop the rioting. But they couldn’t do much because of the local prosecutors said they wouldn’t persecute. The Feds got smart and deputized all of the Oregon State Police, and now they can arrest and they will be facing federal prosecutors. We will have to wait and see how that turns out.

The fake media is blasting President Trump for supposedly saying that the military are a bunch of losers. They also claim that he said he wouldn’t go to Arlington cemetery because he didn’t want to get his hair wet. Fact is that they felt it was too stormy to go in the helicopter. The democrats, especially Joe Biden have been hitting hard in ad commercials and while speaking publicly. It is all lies!! The fact check people said this never happened. People who with President trump at the time they claim he said those words, say it is a total fabrication. SEEK THE TRUTH!! Trump loves the military.

I have been sharing excerpts from my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

I think back to my time in the Military and think about what was good and what wasn’t good.

______________________________________________________

Some of the not good things were:

  1. Good friend in Korea suffocated in a human waste ditch, called a “Honey bucket.”
  2. Three of us enlisted into the military Buddy System and only two came back alive.
  3. A drunken soldier was goaded into placing his wet tongue on a frozen flagpole pipe. (Wasn’t pretty.)
  4. A “slicky boy,” snuck in my compound in Korea. I was the only one there.
  5. One soldier in Korea had sex so many times in the Village that he came down with an awful disease, and had to have part of his penis amputated.

All of these stories will be in the book in much more detail.

_____________________________________________________

Some good and fun things were:

  1. I was nominated for soldier of the month in Basic Training.
  2. We had fun with a Warrant Officer who was marching us back to the barracks in Basic. He marched us into the bay.
  3. My buddy made the mistake of washing all of his military clothes at once, and there was a sudden call to assemble.
  4. I went to Tokyo, Japan for R&R (Rest and recuperation.) I remember most of it.
  5. I got to go up to the DMZ zone in Korea and saw a North Korean looking at me through his binoculars.

These stories will also be in length in the book.

News

They have pulled the Federal Agents out of Portland, Oregon. They replaced them with State Police. The Governor thought they had left, but the leader of the Agents said they weren’t leaving until they can see that the State Police can get control of the rioting.

President Trump is being attacked on all sides. Much of it from Fake media. He is staying strong, and facing the storm.

How are you doing these day my friend? The country is not a friendly place to be right now. There is the rioting, the Pandemic, shootings, and violence. Almost like the war zone we faced.

I am holding on as strong as I can, but I am on lock down. I have underlying problems that the virus would love to attack.

Is the stress getting to you? Is it too overwhelming right now?

There is a toll free number you can call 24/7 to get help. The people there are very qualified.

Face The Storms of your Life, and Survive

It has been an amazing ride for the month of June. I was excited to tell you on June 1st that we had just passed 8,000. It took over three years to do that. Then I stepped up my posting, and you all responded, Since June 1st, we have had 273 new subscribers. It took me months to get that many before. THANK YOU!!

I read that some knuckle heads have torn down the statue of George Washington in Portland, Oregon. I am ashamed to say that Portland is less than 50 miles from here. Too close to home. The rioters twisted minds claim that Washington was a racist and therefore he has to go.

There are statues being torn down all over our country. Nancy Pelosi has ordered all past speaker of the house politicians who she claims are racist to be taken down. She has become one of the rioters.

When I was in basic training I had a lot of growing up to do. I was a shy, quiet, kid from Oregon, who was lost when basic started. I wanted to hide in the barracks. Of course, the drill sergeant would not allow you to do that. Sgt McDonald was a tough guy on the outside. (I will explain what I mean by that shortly. )

He had me digging ditches and throwing a cigarette butt in and then cover it up. Then he would have me dig it up again. I quickly learned to be though and not let him shake me. He kept sending me in place of other recruits to KP, so they could get more training.

Then something happened. He told me he had nominated me for soldier of the month. I was very honored and went to meet all the brass at headquarters. He also named me to be on the honor guard that was marching in a up coming parade soon. I was again honored. I saw him walking alone one day and I stopped him to ask. “Why have you suddenly been so nice to me?” He bark back. “You have become a soldier!” You never questioned my commands and took orders quite well. To me that should be rewarded. “

I had become a man, and went on to be one of the top recruits at basic that year.

I am not telling you this to be bragging. I am telling you this to help you realize that you don’t have to be mad and upset when things do not go your way. Ride the waves, and learn.

President Trump is being attacked from all sides. The fake media, democrats, rioters, and many others. I have never seen anything like this. He is one of the strongest presidents of all time. No other president has had to go through all this crap. I admire him more each day as he faces the storms, and keeps on going.
