The Intuitive Warrior, Ultimate Hero

Michael JacoI’ve just finished reading THE INTUITIVE WARRIOR by Michael Jaco. Wow! Unlike other Navy SEAL autobiographies/biographies, Jaco’s book falls into a completely different category, mainly because he is so obviously an advanced soul. He openly states his belief in reincarnation, and if you ask me, this man is on his very last lifetime here on earth. Jaco knew from a young age that he wanted to be a Navy SEAL. Being a special operator in combat situations where heightened awareness is the norm, he learned how to “remote view” paths ahead of him, then situations that were about to happen, such as a car bombing. He learned to trust his intuition and take measures to avoid them. Following an out-of-body experience in which he came face-to-face with the Archangel Michael, Jaco learned out to send out waves of overpowering love to a potential car-bomber, causing him to change his mind and stop the attack.

Michael Jaco blew my mind. His optimism about the future of the human race is refreshing as he believes that, as a species, we have advanced far enough to all use our intuition in order to create a better world. I say, if we were as wise and intuitive as he is, that would most certainly be the case. I thank Michael Jaco for informing the character of my future hero, Jeremiah “Bullfrog” Winters, who will display some of his capabilities and beliefs. If you want to read a Navy SEAL book totally different from LONE SURVIVOR or AMERICAN SNIPER, then THE INTUITIVE WARRIOR should be your very next read.

The Truth behind the Legend

Chris Kyle 1It’s about time I started blogging about my boys, again, and the movie AMERICAN SNIPER, has given me something good to write about. I didn’t know what to expect from the movie about former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. After reading his memoir by the same name and seeing some poor reviews, I thought I might be let down. But, oh, no. Folks, AMERICAN SNIPER is just as fabulous a movie as LONE SURVIVOR was. It depicts a very realistic picture of the brutality of war and what our service people have endured fighting in the Middle East. I have to give Bradley Cooper huge kudos for impersonating Kyle to such an extent that Kyle’s widow, Taya, said the resemblance was “eerie”.

BradleyasChrisWhat I love so much about Chris Kyle is that he was larger than life. There are stories about things he claimed to have done–in addition to killing 160 terrorists–that may or may not be true. We’ll probably never know, but does it matter? He occupies a place in our psyche that is hungry for heroes. One of his most memorable quotes, in my opinion, is when he talked about the hardest part of getting out of the military: “Missing my boys. Missing being around them in the action. That’s your whole life, every day for years. I hate to say it, but when you’re back and you’re just walking around a mall or something, you feel like a pussy.” These words underscore the importance of brotherhood. Once a SEAL, always a SEAL.

In spite of his few flaws, Chris had a giant heart, and thanks to AMERICAN SNIPER, everyone knows what an amazing human being he was. We need more heroes just like him.

Hero Reunites Soldiers with Beloved Strays

Hero Reunites Soldiers with the Dogs they Loved

Every year, CNN names a dozen or more heroic people and asks for your vote to pick the winner. Even though CNN has quite a lineup of remarkable individuals, the one who has my vote is Pen Farthing, a formal Royal Marine sergeant who created a nonprofit organization that reunites stray dogs in Afghanistan with the soldiers who befriended. Soldiers leaving Afghanistan can now go to the website http://www.nowzad.org and apply to get “their dogs” spayed/neutered and shipped home to them. The bond between man and dog is so profound. Many of these dogs provided therapy and normalcy to soldiers operating in a stressful environment. Likewise, the dogs benefited from being loved and cared for by the soldiers. It was a win-win situation in Afghanistan, but Pen Farthing’s determination to keep soldiers and dogs together forever is a stroke of brilliance and compassion. Please vote for him HERE and look for the winner to be announced Dec. 7 during “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” (8pm ET).

Injured Marine Major wins Archery at Invictus

He did it! Several weeks ago I blogged about injured Marine Major Richard (not Eric) Burkett, who was headed to the Invictus games in London to compete. Well, Richard has won the gold medal! Good for him. The Invictus games were the brainchild of Prince Harry, who invited wounded warriors from all over the world to compete in Olympic-style games. My thanks goes to Jay in the UK for telling me of Richard’s victory and setting me straight on his first name.

Wounded Warrior Games Good for our Veterans

Warrior Games 2013How does a wounded warrior channel his innately competitive spirit? The Warrior Games, taking place now in Colorado Spring, Colorado, offer injured veterans an outlet. Competing in Paralympic-style events gives veterans a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and a chance to enjoy the camaraderie they were used to in the military. Twenty-one-year-old Lance Corporal Duncan Mathis fell 75 feet down an unmarked well while on a nighttime mission with his Marine unit in Afghanistan. He suffered multiple bones fractures to his legs and ankles, his shoulder and arm. After 17 surgeries and a yearlong stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Mathis is now stationed at Camp Lejeune in the Wounded Warrior Battalion East. He heard about the Warrior Games there and signed up to participate. Teams represent the U.S. Army, Marines, Navy/ Coast Guard, Air Force and Special Operations. Mathis said in a phone interview, “It’s been a phenomenal experience.” He has mostly enjoyed the camaraderie with the other service members who have so much in common. We should have even more events like this to help our injured veterans with keep their spirits up!
