PTSD & TBI searching for Margie…

In a small town called Big Springs, Texas lived a typical middle class family living the American dream… The dad was in the military and also worked many part-time jobs and mom was a stay at home mom…

Dad had just returned from Vietnam and mom was pregnant with a baby that was not his…

Margie a typical 13-year-old kid… had seen the parents in action many times over the years and the violence just seemed to escalate… Her last memory was being asked this question??? Margaret why did we have to get married asked mother… Me, being who I am, with a mouth of quick remarks and my siblings all looking at me at the dinner table I chimed up and said, “cause you got pregnant with me”… next thing I heard was mother asking if I wanted to get slapped…

A child is born and a man is working 2 jobs and a wife who has no clue how to be a regular human being is fighting her own demons and her children would wear the scars of those demons most of their lives… some still do…

It was hot that night in Texas, dad walked in the door… Typical craftsman style home with red brick at the entrance… kitchen and dinning room were on the right, living room on the left and a long hall with many bedrooms… You see by this time there were 5 of us kids in that house before the baby came…

Mom started in on dad and it was just verbal… then I heard a slap… I slip out of bed and crack the door and mom & dad are hitting each other with intent to do harm… My older half-brother and I step out to break it up… What came next makes my skin feel cold and clammy and my heart races…

Dad was locked up in a psych ward for a while and my memories pick up almost a year later… I had suffered a TBI… Then came the nightmares and with those PTSD…

Entering the military after being detached from my own life… Rape came into my life and attempted murder… The lies that came out of Vance AFB ruined more than just the lives that were raped and nearly killed…

This is my journey to find Margie and unlock the prison she was put in at the hands of her own parents… To expel the demons that come from rape and knowing what you love most was nearly murdered and the Air Force did all they could to bury the truth…

This is my story backed by extensive medical and psychological testing by the Veterans Administration… This is my story of how the Air Force ruins lives, so they can protect their reputation…

This is my story of survival…
