Happy Memorial Day and blessings and Comfort to those who have lost someone they love.
When I was a young, new recruit in basic training striving for the day I would earn the right to be called “soldier” in the United States Army– Everyday before we would receive classroom instruction covering any number of skills, concepts or tactics it was required that all recruits recite –at the top of our lungs: “THE LAW”.
At the time I don’t think I really even understood what it was we were saying – or why. I knew nothing of combat or deployments. I was a private first class…Which I assure you does not ensure a free drink and a comfy seat. In hindsight, I now recognize I had not yet grasped the gravity and reality of the real enemy –the very real threat to American freedom, opportunity, democracy– The American Way of life as set out and described in the United States Constitution, the Articles of Confederation and the United States Bill of Rights.
As I reminisce this memorial day, I observe the contemporary social and political climate. I am reminded today–It is up to the living to honor the dead. It is also up to the living to ensure the freedoms of the past do not fade away with the future…It is up to American citizens to ensure America remains the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Ronald Reagan warned,
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Some years have passed since I was a young motivated idealist in basic training. I have grown to know the meaning of loss. I have experienced pain. And I know the sting of regret.
For these things I am thankful because with the loss, pain, and hard memories also comes a greater understanding. Understanding and awareness for the significance of my part to ensure my own and my country’s prosperity.
Some now are are actually plotting.
They DO gather in the night.
They ARE aligned with powers in this world who do not share the values or desire for freedom, love, peace and opportunity for all.
Social engineers armed with lies and manipulation in the pursuit of sex, money, power.
They are LAWLESS.
Now, as I type this I have more clarity as to why we we recite, “The Law”. I didn’t exactly know what it meant when I learned it…but I do now.
We are prepared to defend against all enemies of freedom; foreign or domestic.
NEVER underestimate the power of the American spirit. We are awake. We are alert. And America is Alive. So drive on.
🇺🇸THE LAW 🇺🇸:
🇺🇸This is our DOMAIN! 🇺🇸
Are we not men?
We are not men, we are beasts!
Because you have made us beasts!
We will not walk, we will not talk
WE WILL NOT GATHER IN THE NIGHT
We will only dress right, dress right, dress!
And as a last resort…
We will use cold blue steel—and stab, between the 2nd and 3rd ribs and twist!
Love, kindness, tolerance– may they be our FIRST resort… yet let us be prepared to fight and defend the values that ensure our prosperity reaches to future generations When those ideals are threatened.

It seems there is not a war on drugs… But may be a “War on Veterans”
Marijuana is bad. Marijuana is the devil – says the United States federal government…to the United States Veteran’a Association.
Despite efforts to investigate possible benefits of medicinal marijuana use America’s veterans. The FEDS continue to shut them down. The #VA WILL happily give you addictive, pills worth side effects WORSE than your disability!! 🤷🏻♂️🤔 Oh and if you need a drug test?
Marijuana is the most likely Drug to cause you to fail and have detrimental negative impact on your life—Because MJ stays in your system for 30 days or more!
But crack, cocaine, Meth, amphetamines ,… 2 to 3 days you’re good …And feel free to be an alcoholic nobody tests for that. You can be a meth addict all the way up until three days before you start working with patients!
Hmmm ? Now, “I may not be a smart man… But I know what love is.”
I am not convinced Uncle Sam is making decisions on treating veterans based on love and health…
What do you think? I’d love to hear from you.

I NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!
While planning a travel documentary to take place summer of 2019 in Waikiki, Hawaii…
As if on cue… I stumbled across a long lost friend I never knew I would find. The last time we saw each other he was recovering from being blown to smithereens 12 years ago.
After finding my battle buddy and one of my best friends in the world -Hero Goose Grosswiler–Affectionately, “GOOSE” — the goal of my project was made clear…find & reunite the forgotten soldiers–and tell their stories.
In this instance– Goode and I had been separated following an IED attack on one of his patrols in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In the army- we don’t use first names. It’s Rank and Surname. We didn’t know each other’s first names and so we couldn’t find each other when the proverbial dust settled.
Goose endured and continues to endure the effects of terrible pain, overcoming substance dependence and more adversity then a person ever deserves–
We haven’t seen each other in 12 years.
And just like that -SNAP- my mission has become clear.
No one knows our stories.
They look at us and see the exterior…we look like everyone else. We don’t talk about it. Because no one seems to care — or if they do they don’t understand.
We suffer but we try to be strong.
The world doesn’t know we were green berets, rangers, generals, scouts, war heroes. They don’t know we lost our best friends and families to war, suicide, divorce, alcoholism – the world sees problem who just don’t fit in anymore. They don’t know the battles and wars we’ve over come–that often the war actually starts for us when we get home.
But when we find each other…we know each other. We know the struggle as we just try to find our own paradise and put the past behind us.
My documentary will still be in Waikiki —where THE ARMYS 25thID is BTW— but I am going to focus on the lives of these unknown heroes that people forget about once we move on from the military.
When we find each other – we don’t even have to explain – we understand each other.
Like when I found Goose!
My documentary will seek out the forgotten heroes!!! Tell their stories!
Some of them end up homeless and some of them end up lost in their 9 to 5.
I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU.
I FOUND YOU.
The struggles people don’t understand and the fact that we still are successfuland able to find smiles on our faces despite the shit we have left behind.
How we really, actually are a
BAND of BROTHERS.

Life is full of moments— that much is for sure!
I recently found myself scrolling through old photos to find pictures of moments I cherished that I did nothing with. Pictures of cherished memories just sitting there on a hard drive… which brings me to this moment here– inspiration!
I refuse to let cherished (and some regrettable) memories and experiences fade from existence!
I have revamped my space, updated, and put up new wallpaper…(because its virtual– get it?) It’s time to blow the dust off the photo albums and show some baby butts.
Seeing old photos has reminded me…I don’t travel the world for nothing. Life has brought me love, joy, pain, and heartbreak…and its time to share the lessons, memories, insights and advice that I have learned (and continue to learn–i know you think I am fully enlightened –but I am not).
Welcome to the newest project and VIDEO BLOG by @jonathanhursh – I Call it:
So to start: I share some pictures I did nothing with but let them sit on my hard drive:
Follow me on all those InstaFBwitter sites! EXPECT MORE…much more!
Love Always My Sissy’s & Broskis (yup I nicknamed you) — Enjoy the Ride,
I get to see a lot of things when traveling the country.
It’s always a pleasure to meet a veteran – especially a veteran in from World War II…After having a conversation this hero asked to shake my hand – “no sir, I would like to shake yours.”
God Bless America.
