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…

Margie was born into a typical christian military family... Her story is anything but typical... Domestic violence, rape, attempted murder and all done while my dad served in the U. S. Air Force and they buried the truth... then my own children impacted by Air Force cover up while I am active duty.... Rape, Attempted murder, domestic violence and discrimination in the name of the United States Government... and it is still happening as I write... just look at Trump, Kavanaugh and Thomas.... Circle of Silence is no more....
