PTSD doesn't have to win if you care enough to learn how to defeat it! I did.

Remember the story from earlier today? It just got worse because it happened to a veteran in another part of the country too! What is going on?

John Roth, 77, was a regular at the bar. More than 50 people came to celebrate his life and drink a final toast. “He served in Vietnam, he was a topographer,” one of his friends, Tom Andrews said. “He crawled through rice paddies to make sure the maps had the right elevations.”

“They’re attacking the messenger,” Jones said. “They’re not addressing the issues, they’re not addressing the concerns. There are major concerns in that report.” Jones said it’s unreasonable for lawmakers to expect his office to produce the documents by the end of this week, considering he only received the letter Wednesday morning.

"Timothy Nolan has had back problems throughout his life. He has a degenerative condition. And he was used to a lot of physical work as an infantry team leader in Iraq, and most recently as a St. Louis police officer."

Most of you know how much pain I deal with from my back and right now it is OK because of the shots into my spine. The pain caused by back issues spreads out into your body and then into the rest of your life. Seeing this happen to him, there is just no excuse for any of it!

If ESPN is really interested in what is "newsworthy" then they should give fans the same worth and attention they are giving the players. Let them cover how these stunts are pushing them away from the game they loved because they love the country, this imperfect country, and those who stood up to fight for it risking their lives, oh so much more!

"New ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro said on Friday that the network will not show the national anthem during Monday Night Football broadcasts, which is a return to standard operating procedure and a recognition of fans’ desires."

Well that part sounded good. But then they blew it.

“ESPN is not a political organization,” he said. “It’s not our job to cover politics, purely, but we’ll cover the intersection of sports and politics. When something happens, when the Eagles are disinvited from the White House, when someone takes a knee, when we think it’s newsworthy we’re going to cover it.”

Reporters still fail to understand that patriotism has nothing to do with politics because no matter who is in charge, the National Anthem means more than just words.

"That day came last summer on July 17. Bowers died three and a half months after what appears to be a terrible mix-up. The Marine’s family wants to know how that mix-up happened so other veterans and their families do not have to suffer like they did."
