Doug Bolton, the founder of the blog, Signs of Hope, which is at www.dailysignsofhope.com, has written a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the many military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, and the many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics.
This is a new social network just for veterans. I joined it and made instant friendships with veterans who want to talk about what I want to talk about. Please check it out. You will be glad you did.
Military articles to read that make you feel good:
1. Chaplain Saves Stranger’s Life
CH.(CAPT.) Michael Harari went the extra mile help save a stranger’s life.
Harari was driving with another man when they spotted a man near a guard rail and close to an overpass. He told his friend to call 911, and Harari took the next exit and back tracked until he found the man.
Harari started talking to the man. The man shared he was a veteran. The man talked about his service, but he was hard to understand. Harai was certainly able to save this man’s life through talking to him.
Lt Col John B. Davis said, “His small amount of compassion saved that man’s life. ”
Harari will not receive a Medal of Honor, but his unselfish act to save another man is just as heroic.
2. Betsy Ross Hall Provides a Home for Women Veterans who are Homeless.
You have to agree that even one veteran who is struggling so much that he/she is homeless is one too many.
The numbers are going up at an alarming rate.
Betsy Ross Hall is providing a home just for women. Something that is much needed. May women veterans are reunited with their families and start new careers.
This is a Monday. A day that many dread. It is back to work for another week, and people are already wishing it was Friday. Do you feel that way? Do the days stretch out into what seems like 10 hours instead of a normal working day of 8 hours?
The point is that you have a job! Veterans who are struggling and are homeless, do not have much hope left. They sit in the parks and sleep under bridges.
The man in the first story was about to take his own life because he felt lost and alone. The women in the second story have found help, and maybe, just maybe they will be able to get back into society, and lead a normal life.
If you are a veteran, and feel alone and lost, and you are even on the edge of homelessness, get help. There are many nonprofits in your area who will reach out to help.
If you are struggling with PTSD, TBI, anxiety, depression, get help and do it now. There is a 24/7 connection for you to call at:
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…..Never, ever, give up!!
