Another beautiful day outside. Going to have to go on a walk to build my strength back up.

Whenever I think of walking, I think of our brothers and sister who don’t dare go on a walk. They are hunkered down for fear of being shot. Never forget them.

I can’t list all the things I think our country is doing wrong right now. The list would be long. I pray for our president, because to be honest with you, I do not think he is even in charge.

The far left is dragging him down like a huge magnate.

I read an article where a second Lieutenant, in uniform, was dragged out of his car and pepper sprayed. The video doesn’t show him doing anything wrong. He told the officers he was afraid to get out of the car. Their answer… “You should be!”

He has sued the police department and I hope he wins.

We still have more National Guardsmen in the nation’s capital than there are in Afghanistan. That is appalling. What are they afraid of?

While in the military I found that the more you accept orders the less strain you will be in.

Some of the guys I knew tried to “buck,” the system, and it didn’t work out well for them.

The discipline I learned for the military has helped me in my civilian life.

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

I have added another person to interview. I spoke to him while at the Oregon Coast. He has some funny, and yet sad sharing to do and I know it will help other veterans.

Everything else is in the final stages of preparation.

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.

Our Veterans Need Help!

Wow! Very impressive my friends. In just the last week we added 30 new subscribers. Welcome to all of you!

There is a reason this is happening. This site reaches out to all veterans and their families to give them hope. Every post will be directed to sharing thoughts and ideas on how to cope in this not so friendly world.

I have been reaching out for months and the response is fantastic. Keeping joining me here to get help for veterans with PTSD, TBI, Depression, anxiety, war wounds, etc.

What is on your plate? Do you have days when you wish you could stay in bed? Are there times when the storms seem too strong? Do you feel uncomfortable around other people? You are certainly not alone.

I am a member of a social network called RallyPoint. It is a network just for veterans and their families. There are over 1.8 million members there. I love RallyPoint. I have made so many new friends there. I have helped some who are hurting, and some have helped me through some dark times. Totally support them and please check them out yourself.

Remember that you are a special person. There is no one else like you. You are unique.

You are capable of doing anything you attempt. Don’t let the naysayers tell you that it can’t be done.

If you buckle up and ride the world in the terrible way it is now, you will be a winner. You will stand above all the noise, and turmoil.

I have been near death!

Back in 2001, I was a basket case. I couldn’t function properly. I was driving my Ford Explorer one day and I was crying. I didn’t know why. It was getting pretty bad, so I turned into a high school parking lot and stopped. I was getting worse. The windows were all fogged up from my sobbing.

I was sitting there thinking of checking out of this hotel called earth.

I finally cried out to god, “ I can’t take this anymore!” Instantly I stopped crying and the windows started clearing up. It was if God said, “It is about time you came back to me . Now let me carry you the rest of the way.”

My life completely changed that day. I am not saying everything was rosy right away. I still had some struggles, but knowing that God was there with me, gave me strength to carry on.

I went home and opened my desk drawer, and saw some journals I had been writing. They were full of my hurts, but also some days that were good. I realized that this needed to be written. I wrote a book called, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” I was able to get it published. It went on to win a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards.

So now, I am on my second book that I started about three years ago. It is called, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out to all veterans who are seeking hope.

I will be updating you on the progress of this book, and share some excerpts from time to time. If you would like to read those excerpts, please subscribe at the top of this page where it says “Subscribe,” When you do all future posts will directly to your inbox.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all….never, ever, give!
