    So whats the hurry is it that you just want to get it over with. The first part of leaving is always the hardest saying good by and then looking in one direction away from home and staring into Satans Garden now your stuck and at there mercy to come home. gazing at the sky wising that was you on that jet going your way. but the truth is your stuck and you have just began your long tour to come home and thats not a privlege unless authoized so who knows I might as well deal with it because im stuck and these guys really lie alot and the longer you wait the more you long for trees for grass American Bars but you wish your life away and the time is short Its time to go home and your thoughts are Shaken when you discover that your among strangers the family you left has changed and now your a stranger away from your other family Theres no dought war comes with more then a price tag it also comes with hell fowlloing it .

    I just saw the guy with the colon cancer and I to am recovering from colon cancer stage 3. I did not experience any bad medical happens from my doctors which I am thankfull. What I do want to say is my heart goes out to him as I have experienced radiation and chemo for the last year and thank the Lord I am disease free right now. I simply want to say thank you for letting this gentleman tell his story. Men need to be checked at 38 to 40. I just turned 50 and frankly if I did not pay attention to what was in the toilet I would be much worse off.

    Again thanks and please let as many people as possible talk about colon cancer on your network.

    Kyra, I am a veteran and I have no service connected disability so if I develope any colon bleeding or any other medical problem, the VA is not responsible for my medical care. My step father is a retired Master Chief and other than a broken finger that was broken during physical training, the VA does not provide his medical care. He relies on his primary physician. Medical care through the VA is limited to service connection and if there isn't any then the VA does not provide care to veterans.

    Good afternoon Mr. Sanchez. I understand the story you were told about the man facing GOD. I have heard it in many different ways. However the conclusion you draw is wrong. In reality GOD does not help those who help themselves. If you can help yourself why do you need GOD. GOD helps those who cannot help themselves.

    I know what it feels like to want to go and do something an something like time derails your journey. As it may be a dismay in your schedule. I believe it all happens for a reason. Your life is in harms way. Make the best of it like them soldiers and play some card games or something, read or converse with others, anything to keep your self in good spirits.
    Life is what you make it to be. I pray you be safe and report the truth. Peace.............
