    I have been writing an extensive research paper

    on US Military Suicides and I am honestly so proud of the men and women who defend this country. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication and for sacrificing so much.

    The USA just had the 14th anniversary of

    9/11/2001. I spent a lot of time today thinking really long, deeply, and hard about the millions of American military service members and their families and loved ones who have sacrificed so much for our country and very importantly for their fellow service members over the last...

    Even a tough Marine First Sergeant can be kind

    to a new guy. I was assigned to a new unit (for me) of Marine Corps military police and I was extra eager to make a good impression and get along with my new unit. I was nervous and trying to make the right first impressions with everyone. I was talking with a group of Marine...

    I had a funny experience in the barracks

    that might be worth telling here for laughs. We had about forty men sleeping in one barracks and it was late at night. Every bed was filled except one. That missing guy came in around 3:00 AM and drunk out of his mind. I woke up early on during this drunken adventure when I...

    Some years back I got some rotten jungle fever

    and so I was in San Antonio, Texas getting well. One of the other guys had been completely blinded and was there and going nuts with his frustration from not being able to see any females any more. He'd ask the rest of us to describe every female that walked by in great detail...

    They Are Awesome!!!

    I wish we could have dance-offs instead of wars, but this is reality and yes it sucks sometimes. In the meantime and between time I honor our troops and love them for what they do. It takes more than heart and boldness to do your time in the military--it takes a special man to do...

    Tomorrow is D-Day, remembering the day June 6th,

    1944. The day when 160,000 Allied troops landed on Normandy Beach in France. So many young Americans died this day in order to preserve our way of life. Those were the true heroes, indeed the greatest generation. The day that started to change the momentum of WW 2. We should...

    Military servicemembers develop a true

    brotherhood/sisterhood that can really touch your heart at simple and totally unexpected times. I was walking across base to give a briefing to hundreds of troops one day. It had been overcast and cloudy all day but not too cold, so I didn't wear any jacket to walk across the...
