Dear ones,

This is just a sample of what I and other veterans are going through both emotionally and physically. And you can call me just plain old loopy !!!!

Ouza,

My father is retired military as well, he volunteers at the local VA hospital close to where he lives and tells me how uspetting some of the things he sees, the Vets demand way more respect than what they get.

It ain't easy being green and you're damned if you do and damned if you don't!
No one was kissing us or any lovey dovey when we came back rather they were spitting and threatening to kill us calling us baby killers!

All I got was a steak dinner when we I came back and a kick in the butt!

My dad was in the military, my uncle was in the military and their uncle was in the military.

My oldest son is in the military. We are very proud of him.

I've sat across a table from people who went to prison for murder in self defense, people who fought in wars and upon returning, others were positively downright hateful to them.

And all I could do was smile, offer them a cup of coffee, and an ear to listen. Why? Because I would do it for anyone.

So I really hope you don't believe that everyone is like that because not everyone is.

Thank you for your service.

Married to the military, active duty... serving with pride. It's a shame what some of our veterans were put through, but in our experience there are far more supporters than non-supporters these days. Maybe that's one lesson we learned along the way. Smile

Hang in there Ouza.
