  2. Welcome to blogging . . thank you for your message - This site is BRILLIANT - (since you have your beautiful bride, our friend, Crystal Mary, helping you - we are not surprised - just Honored.)

  3. As always...I'm proud to have a fellow vet as a follower and am proud to follow you back. And as you say in your profile..."to God be the glory."

  4. I like your Marine photos, my husband went to boot camp in 1975, served in the Reserves, then was active duty from 1980-1991.
    We too have been struggling with the VA. My only advice to keep trying.
    Semper Fi.

  5. What an amazing blog, one that not only honors our Vets but brings comfort and healing. Thank you.

  6. Hello

  7. This post and song brought tears to my eyes. I am so glad that you posted on Spiritual Sunday this weekend and that your wife is a part of this blog as well.

  8. Hi Ray,
    Yes!! This is a wonderful memorial song.
    Of course, the US. Veterans deserves the very best to be recognized for their brave hearts to serve for their country, the USA.

    God bless the US. Veterans!!
    In God's Garden,

  9. Hello Ray I have been reading your story. My Grandfather served in WW1 and WW2 he never talked about what happened to us he did go to the legion and share with fellow soldiers. I do know he was a bomb dismanteling specialist I am surprised he survived.
    My Dad got very sick just before he was to be shipped to Korea. I myself am grateful for that I was born two years later. He continued in the army he was a light weight boxer while in the signal core. My roots run deep in the military and you will never be forgotten in my eyes and should never be forgotten in anyone's.
    Take care and thank you for sharing your powerful story. My best to your wife and your family. Your story should be heard.B

  10. You have an awe-inspiring blog here, I'm blessed being able to stop by!!!

    God bless you!!!


I am very interested to hear your comments, both in regards to the Veitnam War and to the V.A.'s handling of veteran's compensation. Thank you.
