Another excerpt from my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life:

I had some frightening times in korea, on Hill 468 while working up there. One time it was very foggy, and I could hear noises coming from the shed area where all the gas and generators were.

That wasn’t a good thing, because there were “slicky boys,” (thieves,) always trying to steal from the military.

I kept hearing it so I opened the door of my hut and fired a shot, plus I yelled at the top of my lungs. Still couldn’t see anything, but the next morning when the fog cleared. I could that someone had been there.

No one was actually there, but over by the main entrance was a pair of torn-up tennis shoes, and blood on the barbed wire surrounding the compound.

Figured a slicky boy thought he could steal because no one could see him.

He paid a price for his wrong doing.

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.
