All Honorably Discharged Veterans can Shop online at the PX Again!

If you've served honorably and you want tax free and free shipping, plus, price matches, then go to so this November you can join or rejoin your shopping privileges.
The online exchange store is one of the few benefits post active duty that I truly love and I think it's awesome that it now being extended to all honorably discharged veterans. 
I am a firm believer than information dissemination for this benefit is surely lacking. So this is my 2 cents and I hope it finds my brothers and sisters well.

Coffee Mug

Trying to find stuff that relates to your service or deployments are not as easy as one would think. So since I break coffee mugs every couple of weeks, I thought I'd make one that I like and maybe I won't drop it and break it like it's predecessors.

Here's the link for my new coffee mug.


Invisible or Not

I have a lengthy history. Between this and I have plenty out there for the novice researcher to know alot about me.  I have mentioned my real name several times but try to disassociate it with myself when that does happen.  Being invisible on the world wide web, is essentially impossible.

My military career is obviously the main theme here and there.  I mean after 20 and half years that takes up almost half my life. I can't complain too much.  I have some awesome pictures and experiences that definitely worth sharing.

My wife and I have been tinkering with the off-grid living idea for some time now.  It looks like within the year it will be completed, without any major obstacles.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Well, off grid means less internet, right?  If everything goes as planned maybe not.  And maybe not for a very high cost.  Currently we spend about 70 bucks and receive about 100 megabytes download and 15 megabytes upload with the occasional drop in the evening without any cords.  Awesome, right?    Once everything is in place and every aspect of the internet goes into effect I'll update you guys and blab about my methods.

Now as my main point, being invisible isn't the same as not being heard.  That's what I plan on doing.  I want to get back into writing* more often.  I want to get back to interacting within the community again.  It was fun, especially when I was in a not fun place.  My free time most likely will increase by default, maybe not in the first few months but shortly there after.  Plus, my memoir has been slow going.

*I use a system  under the Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program .  Use the first link to see simular devices that I use to see and use this link to see how I write.

No Barriers Summit

Because of scholarships, my wife and I are going this June.  We hope this will continue not just for us but for more veterans.   I'll have a report when we're back.
