    U.S. ARMY

    Ok

    Im going through my mail.

    Low and behold the government gives a shit in some kind of way.
    It states this on the certifcate or recognition what have you.

    "To this we declare SSG CANEDO has served his country right. A dedicated soldier.
    Remembering no matter what the odds are he shall never fail his comrades and for the love of GOD, he left no MAN behind"


    below it's signed by my LT that i served with in Desert Storm 90-91.

    In a letter that came with it. It states that I am officially Retired. My pension will kick in after 20 years with retro pay. I officially got out in 2006- I went in 1986 And went to the Special Forces in 89 wearing and carrying the 101st Airborne Wings. I have 2 years of inactive Ready Ready Reserve, because i was pardoned during Bushes FUCKED UP WAR and was given state side cause my dad was sick over a stroke and died in 2005. I get the Honorable Discharge and recogonition. I have all the medals and Heartache of which some of you don't don't know

    Let me say this....

    I was lucky...having raised my boys Jordan and Blake on my own, was a tuff battle. Serving at that time was even more challenging. Having my DAD leave me at that time was even harder... I come from a family of military... I don't wish that on my Boys...even though my son Blake want's to supersede me..

    I will tell you a joke but it's funny to me..

    I come from a chain of millitary...

    My grandfather was with the 11th Airborne Division
    My Dad was with the 82nd and the 11th Airborne Division


    Me and my dad were butting heads when i first went in, he said " You better get with the 82nd, they would like you...

    Well since him and I werent seeing eye to eye at that time, One of buddys convince me to go with him and I rolled with the 101st.

    I called my dad days before we were ready to leave Saudia Arabia, and he tells me we have a huge flag sitting on the top of the house to welcome you home. I was exitited....

    I get to my dads house, and i seen the flags

    11th Airborne big 12x12
    82nd Airborne big 12x12
    and i laughed when i saw it

    one inch by one inch of the screaming eagles flag of the 101st

    he gave me beer and said welcome home son

    Though it's just a memory, I remember it everyday. getting the News i heard will enhance my motivation to Cabo, cause life does go on, and I will exercise that right. My dad was right in a lot of ways. He got were I am. and were I will be.

    The book that i wrote, or rather trying to get out , tells the tales of what really happened then. I know, now no one cares, it's my memoires. I have to live with it. I know what happened then, what escallated to today...

    Sometimes things happen for a reason, not sure why, but I will be sure to ask GOD when i get there...

    He has a US PARATROOPER (that's me) on his hands.

    Just thought I'd share my joy! it only took me a few years to get reconized....

    I don't care if your Navy, Marine, Airforce, or Army

    We all stand as one

    I was selfish when it happened in 90-91 damn me for it .......I saw a lot of Blood. and saw people fall or die I hope to GOD he forgives me..and I know I will have to face the Big Man for that, but i was doing my job.

    But i know now, that not only was I lucky, but enough to come back in live...


    Hail to the 101st Airborne Division....

    I hope you remember me, of who I am....

    God bless you, warrior. Thank you for your service. Sounds to me like you have a "Rendesvouz With Destiny" at Cabo. Enjoy it.

    Without doubt, it is because of guys like you Metal Marc, Snic and Wray that we can live free lives. Thank you doesn't seem enough but know you have my respect and gratitude and I hope your retirement is everything you wish it to be, filled with the happiness you deserve for your service.

    Those who wear the uniform are better and braver persons than I. You are one of those people, C5A1B5O0.

    When I thank someone for my freedom, it is never a politician, never a president, but a serviceman (or woman). So again....thank you for all you have done.

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    You guys are totally awesome....

    I wish i could clone you all

    Today, I took the day off, and went through my foot locker to see what i have. I took the time to get my dress blues out and truly i haven't pulled them out since 1999.

    I'll have to upload a picture sometime this weekend so you guys can see it...


    What suprised me was how nice it really looked... Shit I really took care of it.

    As i looked the medals heres' what is on it

    The silver cross Badge
    Good conduct Badge
    All 4 of the Desert storm ribbon's...Even the one King FAHAD gave us in real Gold so that's 5
    Basic training badge
    AIT badge----Advanced Indivual Trainning
    My expert chains that hold my Grenade, M-60-M-16-Flame thrower-and 187th Ordance Corp. chain
    My Jumpmaster Wings ( they look so nice) I miss the C-5 I jumped 49 during my era
    My Air Assuat Wings ( I miss the blackhawk) I have 60 repels
    My Jungle training Badge ( Damn FT Benning and there swamps)
    My Staff Sergant Stripes
    My Original Dog Tags (given to me on 12/25/86) Ft Jackson NC
    My " This Will Defend" Badge
    My "Honor Guard Rope".....On the left side of my jacket it's white and red
    and lastly my U.S. Pendant that was awarded to me when i got back from Desert Storm... I got this from Chief Grottollo, retired.

    As i look at the uniform, i took so much time then to make sure it was right

    On my left shoulder it has the patch of the sword and the 3 lighting bolts going through it. above it has the american flag

    the right shoulder has the screaming eagle patch, with the Special Forces and Air Assualt sewed on it

    The rest is just full of dust, i have to take it too the cleaners, cause i feel a need to display it..

    To all of you..... I want to say thank you....your kind words mean alot, i wish some day i could meet you all or let alone have dinner with you someday. or maybe come down to Cabo when i settle in....


    Yea it's been a helluva journey..

    But i have only just begun

    Thanks for all your quotes, responses, feedback. I mean you don't know how much that means to me...

    It really helps and by me saying thank you would be selfish.....but since i served and went the distance, well...


    Your Welcome
