What Did You Think I Was Going To Say Joe, After 33 Years!
Soon Too!



Note To Joe
You didn't really think you were going to pull that off
St. Patrick's Day?
I've seen that flash and it's not like you never did that to me before!
Like I've said "I know Your ways".

I Do Love You Crazy Boy, who could stay mad at someone as crazy as you are!
And accompanied with a list of valid excuses.

I do get mad sometimes, but Kevin just looked too hysterical, drunk in that Leprechaun hat and every time I think of it I laugh!
You better get me outta here soon. My sense of humor is running out!

I thought some of you might like this bit of Disabled American Veteran's History.
I would love to be a Trench Rat.
National Order of Trench Rats History
1924

The National Order Of Trench Rats was conceived by a group of Disabled World War I Veterans who were patients in United State Public Heath Service Hospital No. 54 Located at Arrowhead Springs, California. Because of the shortage of beds following WWI, this hospital, like many others, had been converted out of a building formerly used for other purposes. This particular building in which the hospital was housed had been a well-known hotel located on the side of a mountain about seven miles from the city of San Bernardino. The Name “Trench Rats“ was adopted as it is symbolic of the rats which the World War I veterans encountered in the trenches in France.

Some of the patients were members of Los Angeles Chapter of the DAV. The hospital was isolated and there were no activities for the patients to pass the time, the majority of whom were ambulatory. A few members of this Chapter conceived the idea of organizing a group of the most active members in a secret, fraternal society and devised an initiation ceremony for fun and amusement and invited for membership only those DAV members who were most active in the chapter. As a result of this, most of the patients became members of the DAV and its delegates to the National Convention in Salt Lake City in 1924 were able to get the N.O.T.R. officially recognized as an Auxiliary of the DAV.

The N.O.T.R. is a secret, fraternal and honor organization limiting its membership by selection only to those who show their devotion and meritorious service to the DAV and the welfare of the disabled veterans, his widow and orphans. As a result of this limitation, non-members have been encouraged to become more active in their Chapters and sign up new members in the DAV, this being one of the qualifications for membership. The trench rats are proud of this contribution to the DAV and the fact that many projects adopted by dugouts in their local communities have helped publicize and enhance the name and prestige of our parent organization. The National and State rendezvous of the Trench Rats have long been recognized as the highlight of the entertainment programs of the DAV conventions and have contributed greatly to the attendance. In the early year of the DAV, when it was in financial trouble and having a difficult time supporting and extending its service officer program, the N.O.T.R. raised and contributed funds for this purpose. In recent years they have contributed to the Disable American Veterans Service Foundation to assist the Legislative programs of the DAV and to the Memorial Honor Roll of Beneficiaries of the perpetual Rehabilitation Fund. Over $76,000 has been raised and contributed for these purposes.

Much could be said the difficulties the Organization encountered in the early struggle to survive. Recognition should be given not only to those who participated in its founding, but to all of those members who worked so hard over the years helping build the N.O.T.R. to the high position it now holds and to those who continue to sell its aims and purposes. Their names are legion, many have passed away and even to mention a few would be unfair to all the others, but recognition must be given to the one responsible for it all and that is the founder, Volney P. Mooney, who was the first Imperial Golden Rodent. He later became commander of Chapter No. 5 in Los Angeles, Department Commander of California, and National Judge Advocate for Eight years and was elected National Commander of the DAV in 1934. To him and to all of those living and dead who contributed so much to the N.O.T.R. over the fifty years of its existence, this history is dedicated. Their names are inscribed in the archives of this order; they were tried and found true to their trust, to their obligations and to their own consciences. We know that membership in this organization inspired all of them with the incentive to further the welfare of our disabled comrades.

Semper Fidelis

Enough Is Too Much! Why Are Young People Shooting Each Other?

Murdered Man Studied At NJCU, Was Preparing For Navy

Every time I read the Jersey Journal I just get angrier and angrier at the Stupidity that's going on out there on the streets!


I'm Calling On All Who Have The Power, Turn This Trend Around immediately!

Like Role Models. Reverend Jackson, Reverend Sharpton, Sports And Media Stars, etc.
Tell The Young People The Truth!
Tell Them Plymouth Rock Isn't Just Landing On Them, They're hitting each other over the head with it!

We All Need To Stand Up And Reach Out To And Teach
what's right for the benefit of today's young people.
I know Rev. Jackson and Sharpton you've spent a lifetime doing this, but some of the Media is a really bad influence!
It was in my day and it still is!



This Is The Time For A New Revamping Of
"People Empowerment"!

Give these young people the resources to understand that they are killing each other and themselves, for nothing, chump change!

Music and Media stars. Don't make movies and music that belittles yourselves, and sends an absolutely wrong message to young people!
Make Movies And Music That Are Educational.
They can still spread the message of what goes on without graphic language. etc!

Money, gold jewelry, big houses and cars are not all that!
All that glitters may be gold, but gold is heavy!

Stay away from the meth amphetamine especially!
This is not a drug!
It's Poison



I Really Love You All!
You Are Like My Own Children Or Grandchildren.
My heart goes out to the young people, throwing their lives away, for No Reason!
I was a teenager in the sixties.
Been There, Done That!


This Is The Song That First Enlightened Me To The Fact That Others Were Less Fortunate Than I.
Yes, I Did Make This Pact With Michael Jackson,
Way Back in 67' (aprox.)
When He First Sang It.
Everyone Loved Michael, So Talented!
