POSTWAR JOB SYNDROME
Thank you America and Happy Fourth of July! Thank you so very much. Thank you to all the potential employers who consistently refuse to employ war veterans due to lack of experience, or whatever reason you find to turn us down. People are always thanking us for our service to our country when we're seen out in uniform. How quickly you FORGET how much you appreciate us when you see our job applications on your desk. Do you think I forget so easily the things we saw and did for you when we were in combat? All for you America. Do you ever really take the time to really think about the things we had to do and endure? Do you think about the fact that we now have to learn how to live with those memories afterwards? If you really appreciate our service, thank us with jobs once we are home. Thank us with employment. To those that employ us, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. As for the rest of you, you know who you are. And no one needs to tell you how you should feel about yourself.

AN EXPLOSION OF GRATITUDE
Thank you to all the servicemen and women who are in harm's way so I can sit home and enjoy the fourth of July fireworks. Hope that there are NO fireworks in your location.
