loving this...                                                       
i'm not sure on this...                                         
*I like the front cover, a lot; 
but still 'undecided' about the 'bluntness' of the back... 
**the 'Anteater' does play an important part of the story. 
(per se')

thank-u UC Irvine... 
(or those 'few' responsible)
for causing a National outrage concerning Patriotism, 
and having my publisher reconsider 
my 'subject choice' starring 
the UC Irvine Anteaters NCAA Basketball Team!!! 

*so... do I rewrite the entire novel to include the 
lack of Patriotism at this fine Institution, 
and how their Basketball Team brings the 
divided school back together? 

do I just say 'Screw-It', 
and choose another outstanding SoCal University 
to immortalize within the pages of my 
'once completed story'...? 

-I 'was' leaning towards the latter, 
as I didn't feel the need to add another 'story-line' 
to an already Patriot-Packed-Package. 
but my publisher NOW believes that five former Marines leading 'a vocal rebuttal' of the US Flag being removed from the student common area's will prove to be a highlighted subject point in my story.   

now that they have indeed qualified 
for the NCAA Tourney 
(sometimes reality is a professional set-back), 
a rewrite is underway...



I would like to hear your thoughts.

20 March 2015

thank-u very much for all your feedback 
concerning my above epiphany. 
more of you responded than I ever imagined would. 
with some very, very strong feelings I might add... 

*so with the events of the past few weeks 
and the Team's loss today to the Louisville Cardinals, 
I have a few Chapters and scenarios I need to tweak accordingly. 

Back to Work!!!  


what do the following have in common?
a Marine Corps Fire-Team,
a Medal of Honor recipient,
the President of the United States,
and the 'starting line-up' of a Division l College Basketball Team? 


the few, the proud, the Marines...         
Semper Fidelis
is Latin for "Always Faithful" or "Always Loyal".
Well known in the United States as the motto
of the
(and often shortened to 'Semper Fi' in Marine contexts...)
this is the Military Ribbon worn by all
United States Service members
who have been awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor.
3,477 Medals of Honor Awarded
*303 U.S. Marines have been awarded the
Navy Congressional Medal of Honor. 
(2 Marines were double recipients)
(5 Marines were also awarded the Army Medal of Honor) 
'Semper Five' 
"The last thing he can remember is jumping 40ft out of the Phrog 
with a 50cal M2 machine gun in his hands. 
He can't recall anything else from that moment on. 
Why is he laying here in a hospital bed? 
What are all these tubes in his body for?
How come there is a breather w/oxygen attached to his face? 
Who the hell are all these people dressed as doctors & nurses? 
Is everyone safe from the crash sight?
And why in the fuck can't he feel anything? 
These are his thoughts as he succumbs to the medical drip and drifts 
into a state of dreamlike uneasiness. 
He isn't asleep, yet he isn't awake either. 
This Marine is alert, 
he can hear the voices surrounding him, 
he's just not capable of acknowledging his whereabouts. 
He has absolutely no memory of what happened just hours earlier. 
The 10minute fire-fight that ensued after he jumped onto the tarmac 
in front of dozens of hostile enemy forces approaching rapidly towards 
the fallen helo they had just brought down with enemy fire. 
The Marine was the only thing standing in front of the downed aircraft, 
separating the fast approaching enemy forces, 
and the occupants of the crashed/burning helicopter. 
Occupants that include the Heir to the Throne of England, 
and the President. 
The President of the United States of America..."

They fought together. 
They survived together... 
Now. Can they win together?"

"Dirty Love" - Thunder/1989
**I have a 'professional reason' for having this song on my 'Semper Five' page right now...
I see you, walking by
you've got that far away look in your eyes
It was only, yesterday
like a cheap suit you were all over me
I should know better by now, my friend
just what I mean to you
You've been running in and out of my life so long
I don't want nothing to do with you

I don't need your dirty love, I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love, it's enough
trying to live with the memory

Chew me up, spit me out, turn my whole world inside out
There's a name for girls like you
you belong in the gutter, I know that you do
Baby, I've had enough lies to last
the rest of my days on earth
So now, you're gonna get what you deserve, uh huh

I don't need your dirty love, I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love, it's enough

I know, there ain't no way I'll stay
we were gonna break it up someday
And that day is now, oh baby, I'm getting out
So don't you cry now, sigh now
'cause you've been living a lie now
when I'm not around

Uh, grrr, ah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You've been running in and out of my life so long
there ain't no way I'll stay
No way, NO

I don't need your dirty love, I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love, it's enough, trying to live with the memory
Oh, oh, oh
Dirty Love.......
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, oh no
So get out, I've packed your bags
I've left them at the door, so get 'em out
Start walking, yeah, GO on
Get on your broomstick and fly, to the sky, HAHA
That's right, don't look back, no no
I know that you've be doing me wrong, I know it
I know it, hey hey
I know that you've be doing me wrong, I know it
I know it, yeah
I know that you've be doing me wrong
that's where your going is good, hey hey
I know that you've be doing me wrong. BAD, come on, get out
Go away, leave me alone, get on your shuttle and ride
oh no
This boy, he don't need your, he don't want your
check and dollar bills
Pretty bad, eh? Yeah!
I don't want it baby!
