About bugnut

At the early age of 16 and 18, my wife and I ran off and was married much against our parents wishes. I graduated after we were married and landed a good job. We had 4 kids one daughter and three sons.In the mid 6o's I contracted a deadly flu, HONG KONG Flu, and transferred it to my family. We lost our oldest son and our youngest son, ages 31/2 and 6 months. We were devastated we did not have the support of our families. I just went off the deep end and having no regard for my wife and two kids I joind the draft. I felt like I just needed get away and get sent to Viet Nam. As it turned out I was chosen for speacial schools and advanced very quick.I was then stationed at Corpus Christi Texas. My wife and kids and I had made a trip back to Oklahoma and had a severe auto accident, my wife was injured so bad, my daughter just sufferd broken bones and cuts, my son lost his right eye and half the right side of his head, I hade a broken neck in three places and multiple other injuries. The took us all to the same hospital in Tulsa. They seperated us to different places in intensive care. They patched my daughter up and my wifes brother agreed to take her home withem , luckily my wife had his number in her purse. After being there fo a day the Army sent a helicopter and picked me up and took me to Ft Sill, 300 miles away. I did not have a clue as to how my family was doing. I was gone for 2 months with very limited information about my family. I was finally able to go on medical leave and went to my wifes mothers house she had finally felt she needed to help. My wife and I recuperated there and when my son was able to come home about 4 months, we went back to Corpus Christi. I was then sent off to Viet Nam, which I was involved in so many situations that I still cannot talk about. I then was stationed at Ft Lewis, Washington. While we were there I had a country western band, I played lead guitar, (beleive that?) While we were playing at an Elks Club on Woodbe Island(sp), we had some friends tell us about two little girls that were abandoned and abused. We imediatly left the club they took us to the house and we picked the two little girls up and took them home. One was 17 months the other 6 months. The next morning I went to JAG and started the paper work, whithin 6 months we had birth certificates with our last name. Have you ever thought that things happen for a reason? I do. By that time I was suffering pretty bad with PTSD, and decided to end my Army career. Moved to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, bought a house got a job found that I could not work for someone else. I started my own steel fabrication company. Then in 1990 our house burned down, we lost everything. I had a good insurance and they rebuilt the house. By that time we were tired of city life so I bought the 20 acres we now live on. But then on Nov 1st 1999 I dropped a 600lb steel beam on my left hand after that my company went down and i had to disol
