Fathers Day

FATHER'S  DAY

" They only saw the best and did not known the rest."

Daddy rest with Jesus...

 by Robert  Earl Hutchinson

  Get everything out, with your Father, before another night passes.  Too many times the distance has grown with the years away.  In my case I think we got things right but I will never be sure.  For years my life I was in another world and Dad was part of the world I left behind. 

As we retire or depart from the Military, we start "Second Careers".  Our children grow-up and move away, to another world.  I go to see them twice a year.  On average that is about twice the times per year that I went to see Dad and Mom.  When you attend 12 schools before you graduate from High School, there is no "Home Place" on this earth.

Along the way, too many Military Dads learn about the the 10 ten  year law.  Married for over 10 years on active duty, get a divorce and pay approximately half retirement pay, until death.  This law was the result of too many Military Dads being complete failures as husbands and fathers. 

Some Military male personnel have not learned that "Breeding" is not being a "Father or Dad".   48% Percent of First Children, nationwide, are born to unwed mothers.  The number of unwed Female troops bearing children is on the rise, along with the national trend.

 "My babies Daddy", is alive and well in our PC Military.  No "Stud", Father's Day is NOT your day.  Unwed parents are becoming an unwanted cost and there never was of benefit to the Military.  Longer Stateside tours, up to 4 years, are in the plans for the Army 2020 to "enhance" family life.  This has become a major factor in Support Units.  When Mom is called to a Combat zone, where does baby go?  No Dad in sight, one Hardship Discharge coming up.   No replacement in sight.

Out of this mass comes a core of Men who are Great Dads and Father's.  Maybe they learned from their Fathers’.  From whom shall future sons learn, when there are no Father’s in the home?

"You can check-out anytime you please, but you can never leave"......

   Too many of our Retired Military, have been in "Saigon" since they departed Nam.  For others, Agent Orange is taking its toll.   The average age in our Military family, for suicide , is 60 years old, at an average of 22 per day .

Over 40 years and the number of names of KIA grow.  Somebody send a memo to the VA.

Good night John Boy and all the ships in the Southern Seas....

Black Sheep.

REH:  a thought comes to mind about Agent Orange taking its toll...I was very lucky to never have been exposed even after ten years in and out of Vietnam...My doctor found mercury and excess amount of aluminum in my system...First chelation and then he recommended a good mineral supplement like Ginseng;  then to my surprise lots of cilantro in the salads...According to the good doc, cilantro has the capacity to remove a lot of toxins from the human body....and its very inexpensive... There are some alternative medicine doctors who would back that up and take the challenge....I doubt if the VA would agree as chelation has been proven to take the good with the bad....but it works....Not so much in favor these days....I wonder how to get the word out about cilantro however??    Another good herb that is mostly used for dinner plate decoration is parsley which is full of vitamins and minerals and also detoxifies...Do you know of an agent orange  website where that suggestion could be put forth???  Sorry for previously being off the subject of Dads day....My four are all doin well and always remember to say hello on major holidays and for Fathers Day..

I come from a family where my Dad loved and honored my Mother.  My Dad would have (and did) do anything to make sure we had waht we needed,  ///we dudb;t have everything, but we also didn;t do without.  Which is more than I can say about the next generation.

We have generations who have no idea who their daddy is.  How pathetic. 

The big difference between poverty and prosperity = a married mother and father.  Only 6% of all married Mother and Fathers are still in poverty.

Regardless of what the perverts try to sell, the best environment for a child is a married mother and father.  All else is folly and an abimination t o the Lord
