Renee Langlais, Marine, Who Fought For America, She NEEDS OUR HELP NOW!

This is in response to the April 4 letter “Pure propaganda” by former Army Staff Sgt. James Hood, who questioned the toughness of Marine recruit training. The Marine Corps doesn’t let just anyone in, which is why if you don’t qualify, or the recruiters think you can’t hack it, they send you down the hallway to the Army recruiters.

Drill instructors mold slimy civilians into Marines. The Marines are elite. In his letter, Hood compared the Marine Corps in general with the Army Airborne or Rangers, which is the elite of the Army. If you are going to compare those, then you should try comparing Marine special operations teams to Army Special Forces.

Marines earn their titles during boot camp. As Hood stated, soldiers don’t earn their title until much later. Only a Marine would understand this, and since Hood is not a Marine, his opinion is null and void.

Sgt. Renee Langlais MacDill, Air Force Base, FL.

Renee is a Marine thru and thru. She needs our help now! This is  Renee’s plea! Please read and donate to our hero who now has challenges and ask for our help!

If you take the time to read through my story, then thank you!
Over the past year and a half my life has gone downhill. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, Major Depressive disorder, alcohol abuse disorder, narcolepsy, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, irritable bowel syndrome and laryngopharangeal reflux. I am also finally being screened for TBI.  I am only 29.
I have been forced to work in a hostile work environment from where I received harassment from my leadership. I was written up on false charges by a MSgt that doesn’t like me because I am a female Marine. I was harassed and threatened daily with dishonorable discharges. I’ve been told that I was a horrible Marine and I would be made fun of for my memory problems. I have had my command question my mental health/medical diagnosis  and been subjected to three extensive personality tests to determine if I was malingering or had a personality disorder.
I was lauded by generals, civilians and everyone I worked with. I don’t think you would find any service member who didn’t think I was a highly motivated Marine and would follow me anywhere. I was always at the top of the list.
With the increase of PTSD and suicides among troops and veterans, you would think the political pressure would cause military commanders to stop treating their troops like garbage. The fact is, its nothing but political smoke. Just a smoke screen to make it look like the military cares but when commanders are allowed to railroad their troops with no repercussions, simply due to the “good ole boy network” is a disgrace. Commanders that harass their troops and make their mental health and medical situations incredibly worse is a significant cause and directly relates to the alarming increase of suicide among military members and veterans. Troops are being discharged and disciplined due to symptoms directly related to mental health issues. This can result in loss of rank, pay and a dishonorable discharge which gives you absolutely no benefits.  When it rains, it pours but its a monsoon in my life.
The reality is that I am in desperate need of a helping hand due to financial stress that just adds one more thing to my already overcrowded plate. We are hoping all of you can help with whatever support you can offer. Please consider your donation a gift,this is not designated a 501 (c)3.  I will be forever grateful. Thank you

Good luck. I am a supporter of Marley’s Mutts and I adopted one of their dogs. Also, my husband was in the USAF 20 years, so I understand what you mean.

D-Day Location: Ranville War Cemetery


I always thought I knew about D-Day> the sacrifices made right before Christmas by our brave Anericans, but I learn more all the time.

D-Day 70: 1944-2014

Ranville War Cemetery is a war cemetery maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on the battlefield where 6th (Airborne) Division fought in June-August 1944. The cemetery was started on D-Day and is dominated by burials from Airborne troops who fell in the first few days of the Normandy campaign.

The cemetery contains 2,235 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 97 of them unidentified. There are also 330 German graves and a few burials of other nationalities, including men from non-Commonwealth Commando units.

Blind Dog Lilly and her partner Madison : Tale of Happiness and Sadness


PROPEL STEPS

The Happy Days at the Pet Adoption Center

111027_02

When the Great Dane Lily lost her sight, her future seemed equally dark and bleak. However, no one would have expected that her partner Madison would quickly took on the task of “Guide Dog for a Blind Dog.” As long as Madison was by her side, Lily looks like any other normal dog. 

Lily turned 6 on 2011, Due to un-repairable damages from Trichiasis during her cub years, she has had to continue living relying on others for guidance, and this was when 7 years old Madison became her assistant. 

111027_01

Manager at the adoption center, Louise Campbell commented, “Even though Madison has never had official training, when she guides Lily, it’s as if she’s a professional guide dog for the blind. Madison will always stay close to Lily and constantly have body contact with her so she knows where to go.” Campbell…

Taking Care Of Blind Brother Abandoned Puppies Have A Bond Beyond Wonderful. Please Read and Share This, So Both Pups Are Adopted Together!

Pup cares for blind brother

Pit Bull Puppy Acts as Seeing Eye Dog for Blind Brother Meet Jermaine, the patient pit bull mix who acts as a loving guide for his blind brother Jeffrey. The abandoned 6-month-old duo was discovered roaming the streets of Philadelphia in… September. Animal welfare workers soon realized that the pair couldn’t bear to be separated. They watched, stunned, as Jermaine patiently led his sight-less sibling around — always keeping in comforting, physical contact. Caregivers even snapped a sweet picture of the pair cuddling up together fast asleep. Now 8 months old, the pups are still living at the no-kill Operation Ava animal shelter. But bosses are hoping a loving family will soon be able to adopt both of the pooches together. “They’re always pretty much touching each other,” Ray Little, director of life saving at Operation Ava, told NBC Philadelphia. “Jeffrey really does try to maintain contact with Jermaine, especially when he’s in an unfamiliar environment,” he added. “As soon as he gets familiar with a new place, then he becomes a little bit more independent. But it’s amazing how they try to maintain contact with each other,” he ended. Little said interest in the dogs had been “overwhelming” after staff at Chester County SPCA posted the picture of them sleeping online. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/pit-bull-puppy-acts-guide-blind-brother-article-1.1520454 ———————— “Shelter Me: Let’s Go Home” (Ep. 2) trailer:  http://youtu.be/E6qcMrr5L_M Episode 2 is now available on DVD: http://ShelterMe.tv/dvd/ SHELTER ME, Episode 1, is on NETFLIX http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Shelter_Me/70264887?trkid=13462100 DONATE a toy to a shelter pet: http://amzn.com/w/1TGMPDNBWZWOB http://www.ShelterMe.com/ is the only dedicated site that lets anyone create online profiles of shelter pets to help them get adopted. https://www.facebook.com/ShelterMeTVSee More
