    Music speaks to us. It touches our soul. It helps us visual life in living color. It helps clear that fog we might have in our mind.

    Many tears of joy and sadness are shed as we take our journey through music. For those that are deaf, the beat can still be felt and understood.

    Life is so precious. Too often in life people give up hope. Thankfully there are those among us who come to throw us a lifeline.
    Though I am unable to share every heroic act that has happened in our lifetime, by sharing the ones I do, I just wish if we need it as a person, we reach out for that lifeline. We are worthy of saving.

    Today I watched the tribute episode on Riverdale for Luke Perry. Very emotional, but it truly was a beautiful episode.
    These next songs are for the one(s) we lost who will never be forgotten, but kept close to our hearts forever. Life is so precious.

    Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth - Lyrics

    sweetlikez 3.75K subscribers

    When this song came out I was a senior in high school in 1966. I hadn't much thought about what I was going to do with my life.

    I would probably join the service after graduation. I can remember my math teacher arguing with me about not joining the service. Those were times that life was hard to get ahold of, at least for me.

    But I will say that the service allowed me to go to college through the GI Bill. So I considered this my best path forward in life. I eventually received my degree.

    After my 2nd stint in the service, I went back to school once more and studied for another degree, in Applied Science, which I received.

    My brother was in Vietnam building communication lines for our soldiers. He was married when he volunteered rather than getting drafted.

    Nadine my wife loved this song. I remember when I came back from my 2nd tour in Vietnam. I just ETS'd (End Term Service) out of my first stint in the service in 1971.

    I landed at the Portand Maine International Jetport. I flagged a taxi and asked the driver to take me to Portland so I could catch a bus home.

    He asked me where I was going. I told him. He said, "I am taking you home soldier". We talked on the ride and finally arrived in Auburn at my house. I reached for my wallet and he said, "This ride was free, God Bless and thank you for your service."

    I thanked him and never ever forgot his kindness. I have tried to pay that kindness forward in my life to others.

    Upon my graduation, I learned my wife was pregnant with our first child.
    Jobs were scarce, so I worked for a moving company going on long distance moves with a driver and crew. I knew this wasn't going to cover the cost of a child. I rejoined the service.

    Our first son was born. It was a wonderful time in our life. Almost 2 years pass.

    Nadine and I, and our son, were now in Okinawa at the time of this song. We were there for 2 and half years. Beautiful place, amazing people, and it was full of tradition from Mainland Japan.

    We had 4 Television channels, American Armed Forces Network and 3 Japanese channels. Our son loved all the animated cartoons on the Japanese channels. Nadine was into General Hospital, but the show was in a 6 month delay. When we returned to the U.S. she was missing 6 months of the show. She was not a happy camper.

    While I was on leave, Nadine and I, and some friends, went to a concert with Dr. John in Augusta, ME. The armory where it was at had some type of power failure.
    There were military trucks outside. They opened the side doors of the armory, hooked up generators, and the concert went on with lights shining on the stage.
    It was the best concert we ever attended - one to remember.

    I remember when I came back from Vietnam, took leave, and then reported to my next duty station just outside Petaluman, CA. @(Two Rock Ranch Station).

    While there I met old friends and made new ones. Robert Jarboe and I were tight (good friends). We both agreed to 1049 - Military Personnel Transfer Request Form. We requested to go back to Vietnam, as California at that time was just too expensive on a soldiers pay.

    We were acccepted, took leave, and both left to return to Vietnam. Bob however had got sick on the way. They medivac'd him to Japan and he was too sick to return.

    So there I was, my friend, the last time I would see him, now absent and reporting alone at my next duty station. Life can be strange indeed.

    I dedicate this song to Nadine, who I was writing to and decided she was the one I wanted to be with.

    I had bought a 1969 Mach 1 Mustang ($3,300), through the Army and Air Force Exchange Service while in Vietnam. I picked it up in Burlington, NJ on my way home. (As a benefit, our pay was tax free while in a combat zone, and our license was in force for as long as we were in the service).

    I returned home, met Nadine. Had many interesting days together and finally proposed to her in 1972 and was married on Dec 15th, by a friend who just happened to be a Justice of the Peace.

    Wouldn't you know it, on the day we were married we had a heck of a snowstorm. The ride home was fun, scary, and one we both never forgot and joked about many times.

    Our life together took many twists and turns. My tour to Korea, and then our move to Okinawa for two and a half years.

    A beautiful country under Japanese control. During our time there, we saw gas prices rise overnight by 35 cents a gallon. There were so many amazing sights and people. Typhoons would stay over the island for days and then move away slowly.

    We were there when they changed from the right side to the left side of the road driving. For that event, 6,000 motorcycle policeman were brought in from mainland Japan.

    A cannon was fired at 6 am one morning, and then the motorcyclemen would lead us through each road, teaching us how to change lanes, and turn into the correct lane. It was a sight that was amazing to behold.

    I will say that my time in the service was amazing. Sure there were hard times, seeing friends leave, others leave this Earth, and still all the different moves.
    The only regret I have is that sometimes life is too short.

    Sometimes all your hopes and dreams don't come true. There are times you don't accomplish all you want. The only thing that matters the most is, your effort, and don't give up if at all possible.

    I remember one soldier from Korea who was given a coat intended for me. He personally delivered it to me back stateside. Men and women soldiers are a special breed. They look out for one another.

    I salute and admire them. and will never forget my brothers and sisters in the military. I was proud to have served.

    I was stationed at Ft. George G Meade. I worked inside the National Security Agency. It was a combination of all branches of service and civilians.

    At first I worked rotating shifts, so sleep was an elusive thing at times. Eventually I was moved to a straight day shift. With a family that was a bonus.

    Back then the cost of living was expensive. Nadine had a job at a computer store in the bookkeeping department.

    On the weekends I would work for E. I. Kane. Inc., a moving company. We would go to all the major government buildings, because of our military clearances, and do easy moves with 2 and 4 wheel dollies. Eventually our area of work included Washington, D.C. and then also Virginia. The money was awesome. It came in real handy.

    I then went to work after my day shift for a computer chain. Training as a future District manager, as I was planned on getting out of the service. So I would have roughly 16 hour days, 6 days a week. Inventory days were on Sundays, man did I detest those days.

    I was at the NSA building working one day. My wife called me, all excitedly and told me the main store (office) had burned completely to the ground overnight.

    What can you say, you see your future plans flying out the door. I was leaving the service soon and my ideal job looked grim. The day I left service I was still asked to take the full time job at the computer chain. Nadine and I thought long and hard about it, we both decided it was not in our best interest anymore.

    My mind raced, two sons, a wife and an uncertain future ahead. So I declined. We moved back to Maine, and there our journeys in life continued on.

    Nadine went to work for a payroll company. She eventually worked her way up to a VP position. She started in Auburn, ME., then onto Danvers, MA., and eventually Weston, Fl. Nadine had an amazing mind.

    You could only admire her skillset. Her writing ability was one for the ages. I mean everyone would ask her for help to write, which included peers and people all the way up to the president of the company and the IRS.

    She wished to eventually write books, but life is so hard to control sometimes, you just have to roll with all the changes. That dream of hers never came true.

    I can remember working so many different jobs. Digging ditches and construction for the city of Portland. Selling things as a salesman, not very appealing to me. Working as an accountant from my minor in college.

    In between all this my dad told me of his cancer. He asked me, (remember I had an older sister, older brother and another sister) to take care of mom. I gave him my word and eventually did so. Finally mom became too sick and was moved into a hospital where she eventually passed on.

    Times were tough. The first accountant job I tried they had major losses from a disease to their chickens. I worked for another similar poultry farm as an accountant. I could see and sense, that bean counting was not gonna be my future, so I left and looked elsewhere. Eventually I ended up working for an electronics component manufacturer.

    With all the twists and turns life was throwing at us, I had a bad habit of eating too fast and not chewing my food good enough. Three times I ended up choking.

    Nadine performed the Heimlich maneuver on me each time and saved me. However, the last time, I ended up in the emergency room and soon learned I needed my gallbladder out and had developed Barrett's Esophagus.

    When we were living in Maryland, Nadine went to nursing school (she already had a 4 year degree), after our youngest son Christopher stopped breathing one day. An ambulance was called. He was gonna be ok. It was after this she went to nursing school.

    But Nadine was profoundly affected by how helpless she felt during that event. She completed that program in nursing at Anne Arundel Community College. She was trained in the Baltimore General Hospital emergency room area.

    Finally I developed panic attacks and was treated and eventually healed. I have never had another panic attack, thankfully. All I can say, wow life had made some hard pitfalls for us to overcome, but with my amazing wife, we finally found our footing, or so I thought.

    Life is funny at times. We were at Walt Disney World in Florida. I am artistic by nature and admired all the beautiful sights there. I remember looking at something that caught my eye, and said I sure wish we lived in Florida.

    As luck would have it, Nadine was offered a Vice President position for CompuPay in Miramar, Florida. Of course she accepted. We moved, rented for months until we finally moved to Weston, Florida.

    We lived in Florida for 10 plus years. As time passed, Nadine would become sick so many times. The doctors never seemed to find a definitive answer at the Cleveland Clinic of Weston, Florida.

    We had a cat my youngest son loved. He brought it home one day after football practice. He named it Fumdinger. Fumdinger lived with us for 12 years, but she eventually developed cancer and passed away there in Florida.

    So that was the first part of our family we were no longer with. Isn't it strange how an animal gets under your skin and moves into your heart.

    All of us, except for Nadine, didn't get sick except for the trips to the dentist. :) I will say the climate was quite a change from Maine.

    Though i share these personal moments with you I wish for you to realize they are a part of my life. I will never forget and don't mind telling you of these moments.
    Else how can I move on in life if I can't think back and shed a heartfelt tear or two. Sure there will be regrets and things I wish I had done differently.

    While living in Maryland we didn't stay home. We visited Washington, D.C and all the famous buildings there. The museums, the zoo, the theatres, the monuments and even had a chance to go to Fords Theatre and see 'Bell, Book & Candle', featuring Barnard Hughes.

    I took so many pictures and have a dozen boxes of slides. We attended a Washington Capital hockey game in Landover, MD. I remember while working for the computer chain I sold a MacIntosh computer to the coach of the Washington Capitals hockey team.

    Lastly, Nadine and my sons visited Waterworks in Baltimore. The boys got to meet and greet many stars.

    We went to Kings Dominion, Busch Garden and so many sights, and even rode all the way to Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. I would say our family had many joyous days together.

    While living in Florida we enjoyed so many locations. We went across the 7 mile bridge, then onto Key West where Ernest Hemingway lived.

    We visited SeaWorld, Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, Universal, and of course many trips to Walt Disney World. We attended the Halloween Horror Nights, in short, we didn't stay still, we enjoyed as much of Florida as we could.

    Nadine and I took a six day cruise by Carnival Cruise Lines that took us to Cozumel, Mexico. We enjoyed all the shopping there. The margaritas were huge, and delicious, as was the guacamole. We literally almost missed our cruise ship departure, as we were feeling our drinks a bit much.
