"Army Guard On American Border"

Today for the first time in 2 weeks I’m going to Clinton to hang around with some friends. I really miss them. Its been 12 days and my leg, foot is still swollen. I’m done with the antibiotics and there is just little a stiffness in the muscle. I hope I don’t end up at the doctors again. All the scratches are gone except for where he bit hard. I am still using Neosporin on those wounds. Willie is reluctantly taking his pill in the morning after he eats. It seems like its getting easier to administer the pill. Kinda like he sees me coming and says, “Oh Shit!, Here he comes“. He doesn‘t run and hide and that’s a good thing....

The best news I heard today was that the Army National Guard was finally going to be on border watch. I’m astonished! Finally, the American border! Our own border and not some foreign border. What is going on? Is this true? Is this fake, another lie? I thought they conveniently forgot about that. I’m so happy I feel like joining the Army Guard all over again. I would if I was younger. I was in the Military Police for 6 years so I’ll bet if what is going on today was happening then, me and my buds would be first on the list to go. When I think about those days I thank God for giving me the opportunity to serve. If only for the discipline and camaraderie. I didn’t like it at first but I loved it after 2 weeks. I learned about respect, pride and courage. That’s a story for another day… Have a good one guys and remember, someone is always watching and listening from somewhere….
