This year is a very special year for our Veterans. The veterans are sad, depressed, and feel empty inside. They fought for freedom in other countries to free them from Communism.
They now feel betrayed over the election of Obama, a 2nd term and more nightmares for them. They feel their efforts were for nothing. I can speak about this personally because I know of 3 men who are feeling this way right now.
The Hawk is having flashbacks from Korea. Willibeaux, one of the most wonderful men I’ve ever known besides the Hawk is also suffering with this same empty feeling. The Obama election triggered the Hawk’s PTSD from Korea. I feel very sad over this. But I am glad I can comfort Hawk as he did over all the things I have been through. He stayed by my side through every trauma for the last 5 years.
I am sure my brother is feeling this too since he fought in Vietnam. He was one among a band of brothers in the Marines. He too suffered PTSD when he came home as well. My brother once told me he could have had many medals, but he did not want them because the most important thing was being there for one’s Marine brothers.
Both of my Uncles are dead now, my Uncle Charlie killed in Vietnam and also served in Korea. I am glad they are not alive to see what is happening to our Republic. I have no doubt they would feel exactly the same. Why did I fight only to find myself now in a country that is being overthrown by Marxists and Communists?
My Uncle Bob came home from Korea with what they called shell shock back then, but as we know it today it is PTSD. He had nightmares every night.
So this year I’m posting a pictorial of soldiers with their loyal dogs. Every vet knows there is nothing more loyal than their war dog. Some will make you laugh, some will make you sad, and some may make you cry, one will surely make you laugh.
We all know we can depend on our dogs to love us, protect us, their loyalty to us, but there is nothing that beats the dogs our Vets went to war with.
The Hawk has always had German shepherds by his side. I have my own German shepherd now and he loves me so much he can’t stand not being able to see me or not be with me due to his attachment. Dogs are good! Another gift from God in my opinion.
So today we thank every Vet who has served any war and those also who served during peace times. We honor them due to their bravery, heroics, their honor, and most of all their sacrifice. There is no more honor than laying down one’s life for one’s country. These Vets have all done just that. They sacrificed not being with their families, some gave the ultimate sacrifice of giving their life. They are the truest of our Patriots. Thank you Veterans for all you have done. We love you and respect your sacrifices. May God bless them all.
This is special tribute to Goshawk, Willibeaux, Just Gene, my brother Paul, and my nephew Steve!
These dogs are all lined up to give their feelings for Obama.
