Today I am going to tell you about my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.ry

I will share an outline with you to help you get the feel of what the book will have:

  1. The first part of the book will be stories about my basic training. There were some very funny things that happen and others that weren’t so funny. I will give a short sampling: 1. A recruit let a grenade slip out of his hand. 2. Our platoon was marched into a bay. 3. My drill sergeant got into a fight and won. 4. Had a terrible time with the drill sergeant at first and then we were best friends.
  2. Then I will be talking about my deployment to Korea. There were some scary times. 1. Three of us went there on the buddy system. Only two came back. 2. A buddy suffocated in a honey bucket. 3. Had a good/bad time while on R&R in Tokyo. 4. I got a Colonel busted.
  3. Then my time at Ft Bragg will be shared. Some scary times. 1. Almost got busted for stealing gas. 2. Sat on a runway in a plane ready to go the Bay of Pigs. 3. Got married by a funny Justice of the Peace. 4. When I got, out my wife and I traveled across the U.S. in a bus, and she was pregnant.

There are many, many, more stories in the book, but my favorite part is the actual interviews I had with veterans in the trenches.

  1. One soldier watched his buddies burn to death in a humvee. 2. A WWII veteran begged to get a transport plane with his buddy, and the plane he was supposed to be on crashed killing everyone. 3. A sniper killed many enemy, but lost over 13 of his buddies. 4. A Marine saw his buddy in a helicopter crash into the ocean.

PERMANENT GUTTERS

As you probably already know – maintaining gutters is the most important thing you can do to prevent water damage to your home and thus preventing mold growing into a serious problem! But cleaning them is not only a dirty but also dangerous and tedious task.

Fortunately, Servicemembers & Veterans can claim LeafFilter’s spring offer for their patented & award-winning permanent solution to prevent clogged gutters in addition to their 10% year-round military discount! This means you get 10% + 10% + $100 Off – in addition, they’ll throw in a transferable lifetime warranty for your peace of mind!

MORTGAGE RELIEF

One of the many perks of being a veteran is access to benefits that are otherwise unavailable to civilians. Unknown to many active duty and former military members are some amazing government refinance programs available to them through their VA/GI Bill benefits which can help them save money on their existing house payments.

Currently, Congress’ mortgage relief program can lower veteran homeowner payments by as much as $3,252 per year!

The bad news? This program is very temporary, as the banks want it eliminated as soon as possible. The good news is that once you match with a lender you’re in for good.

_____________________________________________________________________

For years insurance rates have only been going up and up, BUT starting this year 2020 rates can be cut down. Most military personnel are shocked to find out how much they can save by simply switching to a new 2020 policy!

Most insurance companies and brokers will not tell you this because they are getting paid on commission and want you to keep paying high rates but if you live in a qualified zip code and had no DUI in the last 2 years you might be eligible for a huge discount on your current rate! In our self-test we were able to lower our rate from almost $120 to only $40 with the same coverage!

That was fun to share with you the many ways to save money. We all sure can use it.

So how are you doing my friend? There are so many terrible things happening around us right now. I live close to Portland, Oregon, and I am sick of what is happening. The mayor is an idiot, and is fighting President Trump for sending Federal Agents. He is even suing him. That is absolutely crazy. There is rioting, burning of businesses, people shot, and many beatings. It has to stop and I am embarrassed to say this is happening in my home state.

Are you under a lot of stress because of what is happening? Is it hard to go through your day?

Hot very hot!! It is in the 90’s here now. Time for a cold one, and turning the air conditioner up!

War Zones in our own country.

We are having a war in the streets of our own country. Now the rioters have pipes and bats. This morning a police officer in NYC, was blindsided with bat. He was bleeding a lot and was knock unconscious. One reporter saw a man pull four bats out of his trunk.

The mayor of New York city is a nothing. He won’t do any the help the police. He even pulled many off of the street. Crime has sky rocketed since doing that. He also is cutting the budget for the police down by 5 Billion dollars. Yes, that is Billions!

Is this man insane? Does he have a motive for doing this?
