If It Matters To You
It is getting real dirty and shitty for Veterans. 2 weeks ago another comrade of mine from the troop I served with, died of Sudden Death.
It is always Sudden Death they list.
The oppo I handed my detachment to at Al Jabayl died the same way in front of his family. He was only 44. Andrew Egan. There are too many and I don't want to count them anymore. All have one thing in common, association with Op Granby (Gulf War 1).
Now I am beginning to perish and I am suffering at the hands of Authority from the Nation I served in faith.
After enduring yet more sublime provocation done from a distance my wife and I had a fight over christmas. You couldn't see Social Service pounce quick enough, of whom I have now qualified as colluding with Police to make life difficult for this veteran and his family. Now we are not officially allowed to contact each other.
We served in faith. We didn't join up to be regarded as criminal or enemy of the state. Now as our lives perish our own Nation seeks to make us an enemy.
Here be a selection of poems old and new. A gulf veteran suffering PTSD.
Some are passable, some are not, some are corkers.
Be strong, be safe.
