By Capt. Steven Ellison, MD

This should be required reading in every school and college in our country.  This Captain, an Army doctor, deserves a medal himself for putting this together.  If you choose not to pass it on, fine, but I think you will want to, after you read it.

I am a doctor specializing in the Emergency Departments of the only two military Level One-Trauma Centers, both in San Antonio, TX and they care for civilian Emergencies as well as military personnel.   San Antonio has the largest military retiree population in the world living here.  As a military doctor, I work long hours and the pay is less than glamorous.  One tends to become jaded by the long hours, lack of sleep, food, family contact and the endless parade of human suffering passing before you.  The arrival of another ambulance does not mean more pay, only more work.  Most often, it is a victim from a motor vehicle crash.

Often it is a person of dubious character who has been shot or stabbed.  With our large military retiree population, it is often a nursing home patient.  Even with my enlisted service and minimal combat experience in Panama, I have caught myself groaning when the ambulance brought in yet another sick, elderly person from one of the local retirement centers that cater to military retirees.  I had not stopped to think of what citizens of this age group represented.

I saw 'Saving Private Ryan.' I was touched deeply.  Not so much by the carnage, but by the sacrifices of so many.  I was touched most by the scene of the elderly survivor at the graveside, asking his wife if he'd been a good man.  I realized that I had seen these same men and women coming through my Emergency Dept.. and had not realized what magnificent sacrifices they had made.  The things they did for me and everyone else that has lived on this planet since the end of that conflict are priceless.

Situation permitting, I now try to ask my patients about their experiences.  They would never bring up the subject without the inquiry.  I have been privileged to an amazing array of experiences, recounted in the brief minutes allowed in an Emergency Dept. encounter.  These experiences have revealed the incredible individuals I have had the honor of serving in a medical capacity, many on their last admission to the hospital.

There was a frail, elderly woman who reassured my young enlisted medic, trying to start an IV line in her arm.  She remained calm and poised, despite her illness and the multiple needle-sticks into her fragile veins.  She was what we call a 'hard stick.'  As the medic made another attempt,  I noticed a number tattooed across her forearm.  I touched it with one finger and looked into her eyes.  She simply said, 'Auschwitz.'  Many of later generations would have loudly and openly berated the young medic in his many attempts.  How different was the response from this person who'd seen unspeakable suffering.

Also, there was this long retired Colonel, who as a young officer had parachuted from his burning plane over a Pacific Island held by the Japanese.  Now an octogenarian, he had a minor cut on his head from a fall at his home where he lived alone.  His CT scan and suturing had been delayed until after midnight by the usual parade of high priority ambulance patients..  Still spry for his age, he asked to use the phone to call a taxi, to take him home, then he realized his ambulance had brought him without his wallet.  He asked if he could use the phone to make a long distance call to his daughter who lived 7 miles away.  With great pride we told him that he could not, as he'd done enough for his country and the least we could do was get him a taxi home, even if we had to pay for it ourselves.  My only regret was that my shift wouldn't end for several hours and I couldn't drive him myself.

I was there the night M/Sgt Roy Benavidez came through the Emergency Dept. for the last time.  He was very sick.  I was not the doctor taking care of him, but I walked to his bedside and took his hand.  I said nothing.  He was so sick, he didn't know I was there.  I'd read his Congressional Medal of Honor citation and wanted to shake his hand.  He died a few days later.

The gentleman who served with Merrill's Marauders,

the survivor of the Bataan Death March,

the survivor of Omaha Beach,

the 101 year old World War I veteran.

The former POW held in frozen North Korea

The former Special Forces medic - now with non-operable liver cancer

the former Viet Nam Corps Commander.

I remember these citizens

I may still groan when yet another ambulance comes in, but now I am much more aware of what an honor it is to serve these particular men and women.

I have seen a Congress who would turn their back on these individuals who've sacrificed so much to protect our liberty.  I see later generations that seem to be totally engrossed in abusing these same liberties, won with such sacrifice.

It has become my personal endeavor to make the nurses and young enlisted medics aware of these amazing individuals when I encounter them in our Emergency Dept.  Their response to these particular citizens has made me think that perhaps all is not lost in the next generation.

My experiences have solidified my belief that we are losing an incredible generation, and this nation knows not what it is losing.  Our uncaring government and ungrateful civilian populace should all take note.  We should all remember that we must 'Earn this.'

If it weren't for the United States Military,
there'd be NO United States of America!

When will they ever stop????

One percent transaction tax is proposed
President Obama's finance team is recommending a transaction tax. His plan is  to sneak it in after the November election to keep it under the radar. This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution i. e. Banks, Credit Unions, etc.. Any deposit you make, or move around within your account, i. e. transfer to, will have a 1% tax charged. If your pay check or your social Security or whatever is direct deposit, 1% tax charged. If you hand carry a check in to deposit, 1% tax charged, If you take cash in to deposit, 1% tax charged.This is from the man who promised that if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax. Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn. 

Some will say aw it's just 1%... remember once the tax is there they can raise it at will.

How much longer will the proliferation of this movement be tolerated in the USA?

 Long but worth the read

                                                                              Joys of Muslim         Women
by Nonie         Darkish

In the Muslim         faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have         sexual intimacy with this child, consummating the marriage by 9. The         dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his         slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use         her as a toy.
Even though a woman is abused, she cannot         obtain a divorce.
To prove         rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.
Often after a woman has been raped, she is         returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family         has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of         the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and the man does not         have to say why he has beaten her.

The husband is permitted to have 4 wives and a         temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his         discretion.

The         Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of         the woman.

In the         Western World (America) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so         the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete         control of her.  It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters         and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim         men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the         Shariah law.

By         passing this on, enlightened American women may avoid becoming a slave         under Shariah Law.

Author         and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to         impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in         two.

She recently         authored the book, A Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying         Global Implications of Islamic Law.

Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her         childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when         she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on         Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with        his family in Gaza .

When he died, he was considered a "shahid," a         martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an         elevated position in Muslim society.

But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an         early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing. She         converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on         television.

In her         latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law - what it is, what         it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic        countries.

For the         West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the         world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed.         Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the         dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that         non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this         world.

Peace and         prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that         Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the         world.

While         Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the         golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics - one for Muslims and         another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh         century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from         and subjugate others.

While Westerners tend to think in terms of         religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship         with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions        that could be interpreted as criticism.

It's hard to imagine, that in this day and         age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to         stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic         reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such         murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through         intimidation.

While         Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over         time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an         extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and         elsewhere.

In twenty         years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the         President by themselves! Rest assured they will do so. You can look at         how they have taken over several towns in the USA, Dearborn Mich. is one         and there are others.

I think everyone in the U.S. should be         required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be         widely publicized, unless each of us sends it         on!

It is too bad         that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept         Muslims as peaceful. Some may be but they have an army that is willing         to shed blood in the name of Islam. The peaceful support the warriors         with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While         America is getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing         God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great jihad on         America.

This is         your chance to make a difference...! Pass it on to your email list or at         least those you think will         listen.

               Car  Air-conditioning - Very Important!!!!

My car  book says to roll down the windows to let out all  the hot air before turning on  A/C.

WHY ???????????

Car  Air-conditioning -

No wonder more folks are  dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example  that explains a lot of the cancer causing  incidents.

Many people are  in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, 7 days a  week.

As I read this, it makes me  feel guilty and ill.
Please pass this on to as  many people as possible.
Guess its not too late to make  some changes

Car A/C (Air Conditioning)  MUST READ!!!
Please do NOT t urn on A/C as soon  as you enter the car.

Open the windows  after you enter your car and then turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes.
Here's why: According  to research, the car dashboard, seats, air freshener emit  Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your  car)
In addition to causing cancer,  Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces  white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. Can also  cause miscarriage.

 Acceptable  Benzene level indoors is 50mg per sq.ft.
 A car  parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg  of Benzene.

 If parked outdoors under  the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the  Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the  acceptable level.

People who get into the car,  keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick  succession, excessive amounts of  the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that  affects your kidney and liver.. What's worse, it is  extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic  stuff.

 So friends, please open the  windows and door of your car - give time for interior  to air out -dispel the deadly stuff - before you  enter.

Thought: 'When someone shares  something of value with you and you benefit from it,  you have a moral obligation to share it with  others.'

 This is  what snopes.com says.  It is not the  air conditioning in the car but the Benzene producing agents that cause cancer.

What It Was Like To Grow Up Before It Was Safe And Controlled.
Here ' s to US!!!!
No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us,


To Those of  Us  Born  
1924 - 1979


At the end of this email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno.. If you don ' t read anything else, please
read what he said.

Very well stated, Mr. Leno.


                   1930 ' s, 40 ' s, 50 ' s,
              60 ' s and 70 ' s!! 

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.


They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn ' t get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered
with bright colored lead-base paints..


We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes,
we had baseball caps
not helmets on our heads..


As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.


Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.


We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And, we weren ' t overweight..   WHY?

Because we were always outside playing...that ' s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on..

No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were OKAY.


We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps
and then ride them down the hill,
only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem


We did not have Play stations, Nintendo ' s and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD ' s,
no surround-sound or CD ' s,
no cell phones,
no personal computers,
no Internet and no chat rooms.


WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping pong paddles, or just a bare hand and no one would call child services to report abuse.

We ate worms and mud pies
made from dirt, and
the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend ' s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.


 Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.
Those who didn ' t had to learn
to deal with disappointment.
Imagine that!! 
 The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! 

These generations have produced some of the best
risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.


If YOU are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS! 

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.


While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn ' t it ?
The quote of the month is by
Jay Leno:

'With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance? '  

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us...go ahead and delete this. 
For the rest of us...pass this on

Fwd: Asparagus -- Who knew ?

I looked it up on Snopes and there is an article there stating the same as this E so I can not ok it but it is worth the read and do with it what you wish.

I  never heard of this one before, have  you?

Asparagus  -- Who knew ?

This  is from a friend

My Mom  had been taking the full-stalk canned  style
asparagus that she pureed and she took  4 tablespoons in
the morning and 4  tablespoons later in the day. She did
this  for over a month. She is on chemo pills for  Stage 3
lung cancer in the pleural area and  her cancer cell
count went from 386 down to  125 as of this past week.
Her oncologist said  she does not need to see him for  3

Several years ago, I had  a man seeking asparagus for a
friend who had  cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy
of an  article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer 'printed  in
Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will  share it
here, just as it was shared with me:  I am a
biochemist,  and have specialized in the relation of diet
to health or over 50 years.  Several years ago, I learned
of the discovery of Richard  R. Vensal, D.D.S. that
asparagus  might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked
with him on his project We  have accumulated a number
of favorable case histories.  Here are a few  examples:

Case No.  1, A man with an almost  hopeless case
of  Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands)  who
was completely  incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting
the asparagus therapy, his  doctors were unable to
detect any  signs of cancer, and he was back on a
schedule of strenuous  exercise.
Case No.  2, a successful businessman  68 years old
who  suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16  years.
After years of medical  treatments, including radiation
without improvement, he went  on asparagus. Within 3
months,  examinations revealed that his bladder tumor
had disappeared and that his  kidneys were  normal.

Case  No. 3, a man  who had lung cancer. On March 5th  1971,  he
was put on  the operating table where they found
lung  cancer so widely spread that it was  inoperable.
The surgeon  sewed him up and declared his case
hopeless. On April 5th he  heard about the Asparagus
therapy and immediately  started taking it By August,
x-ray pictures revealed that  all signs of the cancer had
He is back  at his regular business  routine.

Case  No. 4, a woman  who was troubled for a number of
years with  skin cancer. She finally developed  different
skin cancers which were diagnosed  by the acting
specialist as advanced. Within  3 months after starting
on asparagus, her  skin specialist said that her skin
looked  fine and no more skin lesions. This  woman
reported that the asparagus therapy  also cured her
kidney disease, which started  in 1949. She had over 10
operations for  kidney stones, and was receiving
government  disability payments for an  inoperable,
terminal, kidney condition. She  attributes the cure of
this kidney trouble  entirely to the asparagus.

I was not  surprised at this result, as `The elements  of
materia medica', edited in1854 by a  Professor at the
University of  Pennsylvania , stated  that asparagus was
used as a popular remedy  for kidney stones. He even
referred to  experiments, in 1739, on the power  of
asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the  dates!
We would have other case histories but  the medical
establishment has interfered with  our obtaining some
of the  records. I am therefore appealing to readers  to
spread this good news and help us to  gather a large
number of case histories that  will overwhelm the
medical skeptics about this  unbelievably simple and
natural  remedy.

For the  treatment, asparagus  should be cooked
before  using, and therefore canned asparagus is just
as good as fresh. I have  corresponded with the two
leading canners of  asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I
am satisfied that these  brands contain no pesticides or
Place the  cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy  to
make a puree, and store in the  refrigerator. Give the
patient 4 full  tablespoons twice daily, morning and
evening.  Patients usually show some improvement in
2-4 weeks. It can be diluted  with water and used as a
cold or hot drink.  This suggested dosage is based on
present  experience, but certainly larger amounts can  do
no harm and may be needed in some cases.  As a
biochemist I am convinced of  the old saying that `what
cures can prevent.' Based on  this theory, my wife and I
have been using asparagus  puree as a beverage with
our meals.  We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water  to
suit our taste with  breakfast and with dinner. I take
mine hot and my wife prefers  hers cold. For years we
have made  it a practice to have blood surveys taken  as
part of our regular  checkups. The last blood survey,
taken by a medical doctor  who specializes in the
nutritional  approach to health, showed substantial
improvements in all  categories over the last one, and
we can attribute these  improvements to nothing but
the asparagus drink.
As  a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of  all
aspects of cancer, and all of the  proposed cures. As a
result, I am convinced  that asparagus fits in better
with the latest  theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains  a good supply of protein  called
histones, which are believed to  be active in controlling
cell growth.. For  that reason, I believe asparagus can
be said  to contain a substance that I call cell  growth
normalizer. That accounts  for its action on cancer and
in acting as a  general body tonic. In any event,
regardless  of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is
a harmless substance. The  FDA cannot prevent you
from using  it and it may do you much good. It has
been reported by the US  National Cancer Institute, that
asparagus is  the highest tested food  containing
glutathione, which is  considered one of the body's
most potent anticarcinogens  and antioxidants.

Please send this  article to everyone in your Address  Book.
The most  unselfish act one can ever do is paying forward
all the kindness one has  received, even to the most
undeserved  person.
