Divorce, Loss, And Success – A Veterans Perspective

I had what every man envied, a wife that made life meaningful.  Beautiful.  Caring.  Funny.  Since the day she first caught my eye, I thought of her constantly - I still do. I could laugh with her over anything.  Her smile could crush me and heal me in the same instant.  We made fun of each other and told one another things no transitory couple would (or could). 

We Hail From a Nation of _______

The shallow cheers from a safe distance, the misunderstanding of the warrior mindset, and the truth.  If the shoe don't fit, you will damn sure know a foot that it would.

A Veteran’s Guide to Disability Compensation

Bangalore the bureaucracy. Some help to veterans - by a veteran - who has been there, done that, and got the T-shirt.

Veteran Outrage Syndrome
