America on Stage…

I have been lucky to have lived in many countries, thanks to the military… My dad was in and we got shipped off to Japan after the Big Springs, Texas incident…. and what little I remember about Johnson AFB and off base housing was not pleasant… Dad beat me an injured my brain again… and a couple I babysit for, the Ssgt assaulted me… I was only 14…

While living in the rice patties as we called them, I remember seeing a woman in her 40’s, though she looked much older and when she turned towards me as she walked by the house, 1/2 of her body was severely burned and scarred… she had been at Hiroshima…

My first taste of war and its cost on human lives… After we moved to Okinawa, I remember going to the hospital that was new and had been built solely because of Vietnam… and laying on a gurney was a kid no more than 19… the only thing recognizable about him as a human being was his face… the rest of his body had been hit by napalm and burned… he was so sedated, he never knew life was going on around him….

When sent to Trippler, on Hawaii… I saw first hand the bullet holes from the Japanese Zeros who shot at the hospital when they attacked Pearl Harbor….

I stood at the memorial, where many men died as their ship sank into the ocean…seeing the occasional bubble of air escaping from the wreckage where so many American men still laid…

As I watch how Trump, a man who has no ethics, values, morales or dignity…. I am reminded of the signs of war that I saw around the world and Trump is bringing it home to America…

My earliest memory is before the age of 2... by the time I was 13, I had no childhood memories... No holidays, no birthdays... On 11/5/17 a shooter in Texas changed all that... It triggered my memories from my 13th year... The Air Force covered it up an it happened in Big Springs, Texas 1967... Domestic violence, PTSD, TBI and I too served in the Air Force 10 years later... This is my story to remember what was stolen...
