  1. Good luck man in getting access to your old records. About month and half of my life doesn't exist according to the Army (TDY with the spook brigade).

      The VFW attorney along with finding a couple other Marines i served with (who sent me proof even from an old stars and stripes article) that helped. The judge said i had enough proof for him to order the NIS & CID records to be opened. It was a God send i found them on a Marine Corps Facebook page. I posted my story on Facebook for a good 7 years or more on different Facebook pages and finally...

      There are ways to get what you need

      In my situation, my records reflect the correct days on TDY, but not the correct countries, they say I was in Japan training at an AFB--when I was attached to general's staff (I was an MP) and bopped around SE Asia going from base to base (1974). I have no medical issues so, nothing to pursue.

       

      Glad your path led you to a good destination.

      Thank you sir for your kind words... they do accept "buddy letters" if you can find two people you served with that will verify you were wherever, whenever. bp

  2. Hello everyone, been a while eh? I've been struggling with my health and PTSD and the struggle is real.

    I deleted my Facebook account and doubt i'll be going back to the drama no freedom of speech website.

    i'll be hanging my hat here. I'm hoping cannabis will be rec soon in Ohio and i will again have the right to grow my own medicine. I do hate it here in Ohio, it gets bone chilling cold here. I miss WA something fierce.

    Since we've been kidnapped by the grandkids we bought our last home next to a very large mud puddle named Grand Lake St Marys. Our neighbors are really good people and we help each other if anyone needs it.

    I've had 6 surgeries on my spine alone and I found records from one of my er visits that showed bone lesions and no one said anything to me. They were found to be non cancerous and the Ortho surgeon said he could do surgery on several issues... Torn tendons that need reattached too.

    I need additional surgery on my cervical spine.

    I have to live with chronic pain issues that incapacitate a normal person. Not even doctors can grasp this kind of pain. I use no opiates and cannabis is not cheap here.

    I am also 100% military disabled, I put in for it and my VSO's would tell me i wasn't there to telling me the shootings never happened. It took a VFW attorney and a federal judge to open NIS & CID records to prove where i was and what i was doing.

    That's my update, I'll shut up now

      hey, @bigpapa, Long time no see. 

       

      It's good to hear your still kicking, have you gotten any new cravings for us to look at? 

       

      Everyone is still here, 

       

      Standing by,

      Yes sir, I've lost a lot of use of my left arm but I do a little at a time.

      I'll look through my pics. I have spoons to tabletops but I may have to get them off my old phone. I think I have most on here... i'll shut up now

      I asked several VSO office museum within VA hospitals if they would display the deer rack with the Ceremonial staff and atlatl in honor of all who served but none gave me an answer. To me it depicts the very first wars of this nation where many Native Americans were slaughtered and their land became for sale... the day the white man stole Indian land. I was going to do a raised carving in a piece of live edge walnut that said... In memory of Donald Larry Walters (my pastor who passed in a nursing home @ 84) and to all who served.

      Larry was the only pastor/man i ever met that actually walked in the fruit of the spirit. i'll shut up now

    wax/ear wax help!!!!!

    In Ohio, it's against the law to grow and I don't want to lose my forever home over a plant, besides Moww would like kill me. lol Ohio's 10 yrs behind the times my brother. Yes sir I can grow with the best of them but I must wait for cannabis to become legal nation wide

    wax/ear wax help!!!!!

    Oh how I wish I could grow... I have so much compost and tea, so I use it in our veggie garden. Tomato plants are 5 ft tall and they're soooo good. We are growing everything from aspargras to zucchini n I'm loving the green beans 😎

    wax/ear wax help!!!!!

    Cannabis is legal here but it's 486$ an ounce and a cartridge for vaping is 170$. I can't afford those prices so I go up to Michigan because it's 250-300$ an ounce and the cartridges are 40-50$. I have to have someone take me is another issue. i'll shut up now

    wax/ear wax help!!!!!

    I'll try to remember... That's usually this old man's bed time. lol I'll just have to keep praying and hoping I run into some one soon. Love you brother

    wax/ear wax help!!!!!

    Been struggling but upright. Praying that one day I will find a grower in Michigan... With my income I can't afford Ohio's dispensary prices let alone Michigan's club prices. Can't grow here yet and won't because I'd hate to lose my home... still praying and hoping. i'll shut up now, big papa

    Fishing 🎣

    You have sea fishing which we do not but mostly the same. I love walleye, perch, brim and crappie, then trout. I love fly fishing and to tie my own flies in the field is the sport if champions, then fishing with Dupont lures never fails unless you're indoors. I'll shut up now

    Fishing 🎣

    Needless to say I haven't been able to locate any Dupont lures so I reckon dynamite is out of the question here in Ohio. Time to break the fly rods and float tube out and hit the stone quarry. I'll shut up now
