I am proud that I served my country.

I have had people ask me why I did that. My answer is that three of my Uncles served in WWII. Two of them received the Purple Heart.

My brother also served. Then my son recently retired from the Army as a full Colonel. It is a family tradition.

__________________________________

So many people do not understand that.

Why put yourself in harm’s way? Why risk permanent damage to your body like so many have?

It is because we as veterans didn’t want any other countries to take away our freedoms. We didn’t want the aggressive countries to dominate other countries.

Update on my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

I have got the “slows.” I have had some health issues and it is slowed me down from doing more work on my book. I am back at it now, and I am still trying to have the book come out this fall.

President Biden is in way over his head. So many people attacking him from all sides. He is slowly letting his Vice president take over his duties.

One example of that is this week. Any time you and a leader from another country come to visit the White House, the President and his wife are there to greet them.

Not this time. Vice President Harris and her husband greeted the leader from Japan this week.

First time in the history of our country has this happened.

I did some research, (It gave me a headache) that showed what the pollsters thought were the best war movies as far as being authentic. Here is THEIR list:

  1. Saving Private Ryan
  2. The Best years of Our Lives
  3. In the Army now
  4. Platoon
  5. Black Hawk Down
  6. Apocalypse Now
  7. Full Metal Jacket

They chose them for how they got it right, whereas some military films are laughable how screwed up they were.

Here is one more endorsement for the book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.

It is from a WWII veteran. George Woodruff. I met him on RallyPoint. Great guy. He was 94 and very ill when I connected so I am not sure if he is still with us.

George was on Hospice care when I first met him. He was at a special military assisted living facility in Alabama.

Here is his endorsement:

I know Doug. He is a good man. He knows the hearts of his fellow veterans. His book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and out of the trenches of Life is well written, and is vital for veterans.

He writes from the heart, and speaks of healing and soothing the souls of his brothers and sisters.

I highly recommend his book in that it especially reaches out to those who are suffering with PTSD, war wounds, depression, and many other problems.

George Woodruff

President Biden is sticking to his decision to not pull out troops from Afghanistan. This is causing many angry family members of those troops. They thought their loved ones would be home by May, and now there is no definite timeline.

There is also a rumor that Biden will slash the military budget way down to help pay for his Trillion dollar fantasys. He is certainly showing that he doesn’t love the military like President Trump did.
