I have many tattoos. One arm is all military theme, the other is family. Plus other tattoos in various places. To me sitting in the chair getting inked is a form of therapy. The sound of the tattoo machine just calms me down. My military tattoos all have a meaning behind them, be it memorial or just a reminder. Does anyone else feel like getting inked is a minor form of therapy for them?

For the person on the go. Download my app and tell me what you think. I have over 100 downloads and no rates or reviews. Help me out please. Getting rates and shares helps me spread the word. Once I get enough downloads that I feel its worth it, I found a app maker that makes the app so much better and I can add my own ads so I can get income from the app. When I can do this all money will be donated to a charity that I will let the readers decide. Thank You! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wCombatPTSD
I try to stay away from politics in life because it just causes conflict since I am active duty military. I never know who will end up reading my posts and misconstruing my words. I am an American. I have no political ties or belong to any political party.I took an oath to protect the rights of the people.
The recent mass shootings have given politicians the chance to stand upon their soapbox and attack the constitution. They hide behind the sullen faces of the victims in order to push their anti gun agenda. They blame guns and blow off the fact that these individuals doing the killings are mentally unstable. How can a few nuts be a cause to try and rewrite the laws that have been working for many years.
Why should I have to register my weapons? Who’s business is it if I have a AR-15. It is not an assault rifle. The AR stands for ArmaLite, the original maker of the rifle REF: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AR-15 Gun grabbers want the clueless masses to believe it stands for “assault rifle”. It is a rifle plain and simple. I have mine for target practice and for home security. Why would I want a rifle for security? For the simple fact that I am trained with this rifle. I have put thousands of rounds down range to make sure I hit what I am aiming at. Why use a pistol I am less trained in and possibly miss?
Now ask yourself, do you really think tougher laws will prevent anything? The war on drugs did nothing but force people to get creative and come up with cheaper alternatives. Crack and meth were not popular till the war on drugs. A criminal does not buy a gun legally, so how would making it harder to purchase one legally have any bearing on a motivated criminal.
If we start to let the politicians change our constitution, they will never stop. Do not let them take away your rights. If you haven’t seen what happens when the citizens are left unarmed in other countries then you must be oblivious to the world. Every horrible genocide by a political party has always started by disarming the citizens. Do not be a sheep!
My prayers go out to the victims and all affected by this tragedy. I hope law enforcement can find whoever did this. Unfortunately many of those in attendance will suffer PTSD after this incident. I hope the health care workers can provide proper therapy for those who need it.
Of course the different media networks and politicians are spinning it to help their agendas. It saddens me that a tragedy like this will be used for politicians to push this or push that.
Over my time in the Army I have met Veterans from many wars. WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Somolia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. I have heard stories of pain and regret. I have also heard stories of glee and happiness. One thing in common with all of their stories was brotherhood. When one is put in a situation where they do not know if they will ever come home, the only thing you have is your brother and sisters. The person that gets on your last nerve everyday might be the same one to save your life. Their is no bond like the bond of those in the face of death. This bond between Soldiers cannot be broken. It has continued for many wars and will live on for many more. I am glad to have been able to establish these relationships. I know at any time I can call on one of my battle buddies for a favor. I just want to say thank you to everyone that has served. I don’t know what I would do without the people I have come to call family.
Sorry I haven’t been posting. I’ve been busy trying to get my android app running right and setting up a Facebook page for my blog. Don’t worry though I should be posting some more very soon. Thanks for following.
