(repost - October 22) • @sidneyydaviss It’s okay to not be okay. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. .  Today I want to talk to you all about why I’ve been gone. Today I will be talking about my mental health. I’m going to open up about a lot. So if you care to hear, stop scrolling & start reading. .  Hopeless. It’s what I felt for a while, but that emotion poured over me last week to the point I couldnt control it. I felt empty, overwhelmed by everything in life, lost, weak, scared, unwanted, & wondering where I went...where the self I KNEW had gone to. I felt actual physical pain. I had an outburst of everything I’ve kept locked inside for months and suffered from alone. This photo is from that day. Broken, puffy-eyed me. I left ALS & went straight to the chaplain. That day I also made the incredibly hard & scary decision to take that a step further & seek REAL help. .  I want to stress to all Airmen reading this how important knowing your resources & USING them are. They don’t exist to be ignored. They exist to purely help us climb & overcome some of the most difficult mountains in our lives. The military (& my job specifically) has a disgusting stigma that seeking mental health help will rip our careers away from us & makes us appear weak. That showing any type of emotion makes us weak. Well I say 🖕🏼THAT. I AM HUMAN. I AM ALLOWED TO FEEL. I WILL FEEL. And I’m DAMNNN strong for still showing up to serve & protect while carrying this weight. .  So the truth here is I am not okay. I haven’t been for a while. I’m beyond thankful for the person that was there that day to show me compassion, empathy, & support in all of this. Im thankful for those of you in my corner reminding me that I can pull through this. I had no idea what to do/where to go from there. I had hit my bottom...the lowest I have EVER been. The good thing? I’ll never feel that again. I won’t let myself. I am seeking help through military resources. I’ve finally

Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger arrived in Vietnam in August 1965. By the following spring, the 21 year old Pararescueman took part in nearly 300 missions. On April 11, 1966, when a group of US Army soldiers was in trouble, "Pits" went in to help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He rode a hoist 100 feet down to the jungle floor. As they continued fighting off the surrounding enemy, Pitsenbarger treated the wounded and organized medevacs. One by one, he loaded 9 casualties onto a hoist to be lifted into a chopper. One of the medevac birds was hit and forced to leave for an emergency landing. Pitsenbarger remained on the ground to continue his aid. A large enemy force attempted to overrun their position as another chopper made a rescue attempt. Pitsenbarger again remained on the ground to help fight off the Viet Cong. He was wounded 3 times in the ensuing battle, but remained near-omnipresent on scene, treating the wounded, pulling them to safety, and distributing ammo. The Americans took horrible casualties as darkness overwhelmed the area. Rescue could not come again until the following day. That night, Pitsenbarger was hit again, and mortally wounded. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For his incredible heroism and unselfishness, Pitsenbarger was posthumously awarded the Air Force Cross. He was the first enlisted recipient of the medal. In 2000, 34 years after the action, his medal was upgraded to the Medal of Honor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #battlesightzero #bzo #history #military #militaryhistory #veteran #veterans #america #airforce #usairforce #vietnamwar #pararescue #pj #medalofhonor #moh #pararescuemen

Hospital Corpsman Third Class Jacob Emmott carried a Marine with multiple gunshot wounds to a medevac through heavy enemy fire. Another Marine next to him was hit and went down. Emmott stopped to stabilize the new casualty, when a bullet struck him in the face and knocked him unconscious. When he came to, he refused medical treatment and directed others on how to perform the necessary life-saving aid to the two casualties, despite the fact he was choking on his own blood. Under his own strength, he brought himself to the medevac, allowing others to focus on carrying the other wounded. For his heroic example and dedication to his Marines, a year later and now an HM2, Emmott was awarded the Silver Star. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "...serving as Platoon Corpsman, Company C, First Battalion, Second Marines, on 20 April 2010 in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. HM3 Emmott was participating in a combat patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when the platoon began receiving heavy fire from multiple enemy positions. During the firefight, a Marine sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Without hesitation, and with complete disregard for his own personal safety, HM3 Emmott bravely rushed through intense enemy fire to render aid. While transporting the casualty to the collection point, a second Marine sustained a gunshot wound. Ignoring the chaos of the enemy fire, HM3 Emmott calmly stabilized the second casualty. HM3 Emmott then sustained a devastating gunshot wound to the face, rendering him unconscious. Upon regaining consciousness, he refused morphine in order to supervise the care of the wounded. While choking on his own blood and laboring to speak, HM3 Emmott conveyed to a combat lifesaver the steps necessary to continue critical aid. From the casualty collection point, he summoned the strength to stagger to the medical evacuation helicopter, thus freeing up Marines to carry the two casualties." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #battlesightzero #bzo #history
Specialist Thomas Barbieri and his fellow soldiers were ambushed by two insurgents hidden inside a building. Barbieri ignored their fire and assaulted their position with his SAW, killing one of the enemy before being mortally wounded. His actions enabled the rest of the soldiers to avoid injury and kill the second attacker. For his heroic initiative and dedication, Barbieri was posthumously awarded the Silver Star. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "...serving as a Gunner with the 1st Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2d Brigade, 82d Airborne Division, as part of the Joint Task Force in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM on 23 August 2006. SPC Barbieri assaulted heavily armed enemy combatants who were occupying a strong ambush position with dominating fields of fire. Utilizing his squad automatic weapon, he conducted a daring assault on the flank of the enemy force, exposing himself in full view of the enemy in order to bring his weapon to bear and prevent enemy fire on his Platoon Sergeant and the rest of his platoon located in the ambush kill zone. He killed one enemy combatant and made possible the destruction of the second, but only at the cost of his own life." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #battlesightzero #bzo #history #military #militaryhistory #veteran #veterans #america #army #usarmy #soldier #airborne #silverstar #oif #operationiraqifreedom #82ndairborne
“Life before the scars. Never did you know what was coming. A boy you left and a man you returned. Scars and battle wounds so deep that made you feel like damaged goods. Fake smiles and hugs you gave to hide the sadness on the inside. The panicked feeling of every loud noise that made you jump and the way your wrists carries the weight of memories of brothers on a bracelet, only proves you are battle worn. Till the day you wake up and decide enough is enough. The day you decide to take back your life is the day you use the fire inside your soul to rise above the scars. A heart so big inside lives a man, a man that survived. And when you have accomplished this, you will wonder how you ever hated your scars.”- @blackbeard._._  ____________________  A story you’ll want to hear.

We must encourage future politicians to serve Americans morally and avoid corruptness. I’m more optimistic than most about the future of politics but we must continue to win the culture wars. .
