Who knows what’s about to go down?
#lifelessons . That’s what is about to happen. A hard learned life lesson.
Family: Richard Overton, oldest living WWII veteran, has been hospitalized with pneumonia for the second time this year, according to family.
His family is asking for prayers as Overton — who is 112 years old and is the country's oldest World War II veteran — recovers at St. David's Medical Center, where he has been since Wednesday, said his cousin Volma Overton Jr. "This is probably his third time fighting pneumonia this year, and he's been to the hospital twice for it," Volma Overton Jr. said. "It hit him hard, but they're taking wonderful care of him.” #hero#wwii#wwiiveteran#veteran#usa#whitehouse#tggf#letsneverforget

If you're suffering from PTSD from combat then I have one thing to say to you... ….you're a badass American soldier!!! You stepped across the threshold from civilian to soldier so you could be the one to go and take out the evil people who plague this planet. They were killing women, children and innocent lives without the slightest remorse for their murderous actions. YOU said "enough is enough" and did something about it! Your family and friends are proud of you. Your country is proud of you. The world is damn proud of you. You should be proud of you.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with you for feeling the way you feel. It's natural to feel that way. Humans are not meant to do the horrible things these terrorists do. We're not meant to witness the things that you witnessed.
You're back home to a grateful nation that loves you. Your family and friends love you. The terrorists couldn't take your life from you, Oh I know they tried, but they couldn't do it! Now you feel that you should do it for them? I don't think so. Don't give the enemy the satisfaction of reading about your suicide. You're better than that. You're a veteran, or a soldier, in the baddest military fighting force to ever walk this planet. Wear it with pride. Get a tattoo to tell your story. Phone a friend, a loved one...or call me if you have to. We are a better nation because of you.
If you're a soldier, or veteran, who was contemplating suicide and this post helped you...then share this post with someone else who will benefit from these words. Let us know that you fully understand this message.
If you need help beyond this post on social media then please call 1-888-735-1229 or visit www.stopsoldiersuicide.org immediately.
You're a national treasure. We need you.

Portrait of a vet: Dan Martin
Dan Martin is 29 years old. According to him, the last photo he had taken of himself was a mug shot. Martin services in the marines for 4 years, and then in the army for another 3. After being discharged, he failed to find a steady job. He was a medic while in Iraq, but war medics have a very different job than normal medics, and his experience did not translate well. Because of this, he couldn’t pay his housing rent, lost his EMT certification and car, and had run-ins with the law. He found it hard to relate to those around him.
Martin heard about Stand Down, and went to it in search of housing, however the event ended before anything permanent could be decided. He was back living on the streets for a few more nights and began to lose hope that he would ever get a home of his own again. A few weeks passed and Stand Down reaches out to him about a housing opportunity. He now has a home of his own and is actively searching for a steady job. #hopeful#veteran#homeless#homelessveterans#homelessawareness#supportourtroops#standdown
Since 2001, the number of veteran discrimination complaints filed against employers has steadily risen, being 73% higher in 2012 than in 2001. 18% of the total number of complaints were issued against the federal government, claiming they had failed in assisting the veterans. •businessinsider.com #disability#veteran#veterans#vets#homeless
⚪️⚪️⚪️ or nah? I think @_osamabinliftin needs to work on his depth. 😆😆
Considering this is 95% of his max off this training cycle, I’d say we are in good shape 👌🏿
Get you a coach that knows how to develop not only strength but technique equally. 🤗
Pictures is former president Barack Obama serving Thanksgiving dinner to homeless veterans in Washington.
Referring to the previous post, before 2017, veteran homelessness was declining. In 2010, Barack Obama made a pledge to end veterans homelessness. He helped gather funding for community intervention programs, and results were immediately seen. The number of homeless veterans dropped from over than 74,000 in 2010, to less than 40,000 in 2016. •militarytimes.com #obama#homeless#thanksgiving#endhomelessness#veteran#endveteranhomelessness
So if you know me you know I’m a huge shirt person .. all for different reasons but this one meant so much more ... after getting out of the Navy I was really lost and forgot who I was ... I was super depressed and suicidal ... it wasn’t until I found the gym that I found my “purpose” my why ..I remembered I was a great mom and wife and most importantly I found my smile again 😌it sounds strange that a bubbly person like me can have such a dark moment but hey I’m human... I’m just happy I no longer feel this way ... and I’m thankful I have such a strong support system in place Incase those feelings ever return 🥰 thank you @kg2lbs for making such a dope shirt ... I wish you nothing but continued success 🎯 #mentalhealth •

#day7 209.4 lbs I know what the first couple of videos looks like, to a layman's eye. A fat guy dancing and jiggling. Perhaps stretching, right?
Then in the 3rd and 4th, you'll see some light tagging, perhaps the jiggling had a purpose, indeed. Then guess what...
My last video shows it is just a fun dance. Can't you see it.
It's benevolent movement accompanied with force only to strengthen. Benevolent means 'well meaning' fyi.
Veterans, I want to say that, long story short, if you can't find a will to keep moving and identify with grief, constant movement helps. It's helped me. It'll help you. So go dance often. On another note for veterans, I've had too many people use their veteran status on me, talking me in for the plights... And they've screwed me over. It seems like veterans are just people too, so I will pole fun at all of you if you don't have the courage to dance. Let's just say, I'm a better veteran than you. Prove me wrong with your veteran vision and I'll hail you.
#Fatties, I've started posting in my stories section the food I eat daily. I generally haven't cared about what I've put in my body for months now, and now I must hold myself accountable by sharing it all. Sorry if I big you with just food. But it's for the fatties (p.c. term - #foodies) lol
#Civilians, pass this page to a #veteran. For real. They will literally thank you! Win win yo...
If you read this, then all I have to say is...
