Veterans day my way

Do the Americans say “happy veterans day”. I think I remember it from when I was back in the U.S some quite a long time ago now. What´s happy about it I don´t know. Anyways, there is American saying that stuck with me( not really I wrote it down in my cool little note bo0k)  that I´m going to completely modify ” Mourn the dead,  remember them thank God that they once lived and move on”. There is already quite a few thousands and thousands of direct or indirect family members who mourn every single day, just not only one day of the year. Is that what people do mourn….I thought they made it a vacation most of the time most of the people.

So I went to youtube, forgot, I also was in the army except my army had a slightly different uniform and had a Spanish flag on the left arm. Hard to believe coming from me I know, when and if, people find out I was in the Legion and deployed they actually look at me amazed. But that was my reality at a younger version of myself, quite different by the way, been to combat seen it done it, smelled it, felt it, and not going on to describe those things since I found it pointless to do so to people that never experience it.

This youtube video, hell, you can find anything on youtube, probably type out my name or yours and find me. I don´t really watch combat videos or firefight videos, I know the terminology now to find them, don´t watch them because they bore me.  Yesterday I started seeing one then I stopped. And read the comments. Couldn´t believe the people, people with no idea of what it is like  they have now become Generals saying this guys should have not fired so much or this guy should be here and not there….what the F…ck?

So for me, since I´m tired of mourning(lost 3 of my guys there) i found a funny video of the  British soldiers.Not all veterans are Americans, they actually have it quite better than the rest of us, and I´m glad they do.  Won´t go bore you why. And yes those type of strange conversation specially I like the one at minute 2.14 do happen when there is a lull in the firefight. I can go on forever at the screwed up things we would say in the lull of a firefight or after or during. Completely absurd now that I think back, yet again when your surrounded my so much shit around you, you better have a sense of humour, tends to keep morale up. So here it goes the video, actually had to chuckle at some of the guys, good memories they brought. Because it was all about that, the guys next to you. And remember the quote…… if you want.

The prompt!!!

O.k,here I go found this other prompt also interesting since it was deep. So I´ll try myself to be deep. That´s going to be a challenge.

Here it is“Wish you could change your past? Learn to let go and create a life you love!!!” | Kruti Mehta which is a talented and full of of potential writer so…..hit it!

1) What I absolutely love in life? So just one pick? I´ll give it a shot. I love my family don´t know how in the world have they taken me back at age 30, but I´m quite certain that if I hadn´t entered the ICU and been diagnose with severe pancreatitis I would have never re established my relationship with them. And chances that I´d be dead by now are quite real.

2)What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far? Staying sober. That´s a fucking battle day in day out. No break, even worst than military discipline.

3)What would I stand for if I knew no one would judge me? That´s a hard one for me, I do suffer from a condition, a chronic one named “shameless”, so I really don´t give a fuck what people say about me in a negative way. I can´t figure this one out, holy shit. I don´t care what people think of me. I´ve been staring at the screen for a couple of minutes and nothing has popped up in my little head. Maybe peace in the world would be a nice answer, but not really I stand for that(it´s just impossible to ever be peace if your realistic about it you can hope all you want but then there is reality) since I´ve actually contributed to completely the opposite. That´s fucked up that I really can´t come up with an answer. I just stand for what I belief regardless of who judges me.

4)If my life had absolutely no limits and I could have it all and do whatever I wanted, what would I choose to have an what would I choose to do? I would choose to have a pretty lovable funny smart wife, two kids a girl and a boy and I might as well just add a house in the prairie. I´d definitely choose to write and earn a living with it.

5)What would I do if I had one billion dollars? Buy myself a woman with the same characteristics  I stated in number 4 including the two kids but instead of a house just a mansion in the prairie. Help returning veterans integrate themselves back into civilian life. Give some dough to my parents. Help Alcohol and drug addicts. Create a magic pill that will make you vomit if you drink alcohol or take drugs.

6) Who do you admire most in the world? Sounds cliché, but it is my parents without a doubt.

So here it is my prompt from other prompt….? Man, that didn´t sound deep at all. Maybe check out what the other person said since I´m quite certain he or she, you can never be sure who you are talking through this internet thing….just kidding. Anyways, she actually did write a more profound and deep blog.
