THOUGHTS 5556 TO 5560

MY THOUGHTS 5556
VETERANS DAY 034: WHEN SERVICE PERSONS ENTER THE MILITARY, THEY ENTER AS A STRONG ‘I’. THROUGH TRAINING THEY DEVELOP A STRONG SENSE OF ‘WE’. THEY BECOME TRUE BELIEVERS OF THE ‘WE’ WHEN THEY ARE FACED WITH CONFLICTS. THEIR SURVIVAL THROUGH THE CONFLICTS THAT THEY FACE CONSTANTLY CREATES A SENSE OF BROTHER/SISTERHOOD. WHEN THEY ARE RELEASED FROM MILITARY SERVICE, THEY BECOME SEPARATED FROM THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ARMS. THEY ARE FORCED BACK INTO THE ’I’ AS A CIVILIAN. IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A SUPPORT SYSTEM, THEY BEGAN TO HAVE NEGATIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL AFFECTS. ALL VETERANS SHOULD BE GREATED AND ACCEPTED FOR THEIR SERVICE TO THEIR COUNTRIES. MANY HAVE LIVED THROUGH SUCH HORRIBLE EVENTS AND NEED HELP. TREAT THEM WITH HONOR AND RESPECT, FOR THE SERVED YOU IN WAY THAT YOU MAY NEVER UNDERSTAND UNTIL YOU LOSE YOUR FREEDOM. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 5557
VETERANS DAY 035: EVERY VETERAN FROM WWII TO THE PRESENT, INCLUDING MYSELF, HAVE ALWAYS EXPRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUP/TEAM EFFORT. MANY ARE EMBARRASSED TO RECEIVE THE HONORS GIVEN TO THEM PERSONALLY. THEY USUALLY ONLY ACCEPT THOSE HONORS IN THE NAMES OF THEIR BUDDIES BOTH LIVING AND FALLEN. WHEN THEY MUST DISPLAY THEM, IT IS NEVER “I DID THIS”. IT IS ALWAYS, AND IN TEARS, “WE EARNED THIS.” WHEN A SO-CALLED “VETERAN” BRAGS ABOUT WHAT HE/SHE DID. WE KNOW AUTOMATICALLY THAT SHE/HE IS FALSE. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 5558
VETERANS DAY 036. DID YOU KNOW THAT MANY OF THE WOUNDED, EVEN WITH ARTIFICIAL LIMBS, WANT TO RETURN TO BE WITH THEIR BUDDIES ON THE FRONT. NOT BECAUSE OF THE ACTION, BUT TO HELP PROTECT THEIR BUDDIES. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE WARS. THEY WOULD RATHER BE WITH THEIR BUDDIES TO PROTECT THEM., OR EVEN DIE FOR OR WITH THEIR BUDDIES. ALL OF US WHO HAVE SURVIVED ASK THE SAME QUESTION, “WHY DID I SURVIVE? WHY ME?” THEY WOULD TRADE PLACES WITH ANYONE OF THEIR FALLEN BUDDIES ANYTIME. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 5559
VETERANS DAY 037: VETERANS DAY 2013

MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE, SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY.

FOR THEE, I FOUGHT AND SURVIVED.

FOR THEE, MANY HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED.

FOR THEE, MANY HAVE SACRIFICED HEALTH AND LIMB.

FOR THEE, MANY ARE ALONE AND LIVING IN THE STREETS.

FOR THEE, MANY BIDE THEIR TIME IN HOSPITALS AND INSTITUTIONS.

DO NOT ABANDON US FOR FALSE FRIENDS, WHO ARE WAITING FOR YOUR WEAK MOMENTS.

WE HAVE PROVED OURSELVES TO GOD AND COUNTRY.
PLEASE, FORGET US NOT. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 5560
VETERANS DAY 038: THIS YEAR THE VETERANS OF WORLD WAR II ARE DISAPPEARING RAPIDLY. SOON THEY WILL ALL BE GONE. IT IS TIME TO GIVE THEM GRATITUDE FOR THE SERVICES THAT THEY HAVE RENDERED. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO HELP THEM DEAL WITH THE DEMONS OF WAR THAT ARE STILL IN THEIR HEADS. IN FACT, THE MORE SILENT THEY ARE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES, THE MORE HORRIFIC THE DEMONS. EmilKoval©2013
