    My friends, first off, I didn't write this for my attention but for the attention of those who have served and are now fighting a different but very real battle of survival. We have Vets both young and old that are needing help in some form and they are not getting it for what ever reason. The wheels are in motion now for this man in various forms. If you have never had a stroke, big or small, they can and do rob you of something. One thing can be comprehension as well as use of body functions. In his case, he knows that he needs help but doesn't know how to begin and has no way as well. As for me, I am but a person that took a few minutes out of my time to assist someone who needed help. Any body could have done it and hopefully others will in more cases. I was there at the VA for my own problems but they are nothing compared to what he is going through, I have my wife, kids, friends etc where he is alone. Not every Vet needs any help but there those around us that do. So please just consider them if you are able in some way or form. You just might save a life. Thanks for reading my words, Jerry

    Hi , Withdrawal from Vietnam was 29 March 1973 which makes the person being the age of 63 only 17 at that time in 1973 . TP

    Thank you, Jerry.

    My Daddy was a WWII vet. He had a stroke at the age of 75 which started his long, slow decline to his death at 81. My shop is behind my parents home, so I was there every day. I remember so many times Daddy getting up out of his chair, grabbing his walker, and starting that slow shuffle down the hall towards their bathroom. I knew what was up, so I'd just fall in behind him with my finger in his back belt loop, walking with my legs apart as the poop dropped out his pants legs all the way. I helped him off with his britches, wiped him, cleaned him, dressed him, took the pants outside, turned 'em inside out so I could spray 'em off, wring 'em out and go put 'em in the washer, then clean the floor and mop. It was a daily routine, sometimes happening at the doctor's office, wherever. One might say he was blessed to have me around, but I'd rather think myself as being the blessed one to be able to help not only a vet, but a great father who was ALWAYS there for me (as was my wonderful mother), and who taught me so very much. I still feel like what I did for them both can never, ever be enough. I do so very much look forward to seeing them again. If blessings were money, I'd make Jeff Bezos look like a poor man.

    By the way, a big thank you to all veterans. Another thing that can't be said enough.
