A Verse of Brine!



The wild, sometimes serene and hauntingly beautiful ocean invites and beckons. This afternoon, I must go out and greet it. And immerse my senses ‘midst its windswept waves and curative, intoxicating depths!

Words can be made into poetry, and poetry can be healing. Thus, if your heart needs healing or you love someone who does, here’s a poem for you…and for every heart that needs to be healed.




It seems like a lifetime since your heart had been broken,
And as lonely as a poet’s tears beneath the stars.
If only three little words had been ever spoken,
I would speak them now to heal all your wounds and scars.

All the wounds I would sooth with a soft and gentle kiss,
And all the scars erase with a soft and gentle touch.
A lover’s words and kisses can comfort even this,
When your lover’s heart is true and loves someone so much.

So let my lips give to you what your life never knew,
Which two broken hearts have yearned and cannot withstand.
Let three little words sooth sorrow’s soul–I love you!
And love shall always heal us as the sea does the sand.

Biscayne National Park

Biscayne National Park2


Our country’s 59 national parks are famous for all sorts of amazing ecological and geological edifices, formations, features and landscapes. And usually of a rocky, canyon, mountainous, prairie and sandstone kind. But one of our magnificent national parks is quite aquatic and harboring a wondrous watery world!

Biscayne National Park, located in southern Florida and just south of Miami, preserves Biscayne Bay and its offshore barrier reefs. Unbelievably, 95 percent of the park is water, and the shore of the bay is the location of an extensive mangrove forest. The park covers 172,971 acres (69,999 ha) and includes Elliott Key, the park’s largest island and first of the true Florida Keys, formed from fossilized coral reef. The islands farther north in the park are transitional islands of coral and sand. The offshore portion of the park includes the northernmost region of the Florida Reef, one of the largest coral reefs in the world.

Biscayne National Park actually consists of four interrelated marine ecosystems: mangrove forest, the Bay, the Keys, and the coral reefs. Threatened animals include the West Indian manatee, American crocodile, various sea turtles, and the peregrine falcon. You can be sure when the 59 VETERANS PROJECTS is visiting this watery world, along with veterans we’ll be teaching 4K and VR videograhy and photography we will definitely have plenty of watercraft, surfboards, and our fins and scuba gear with us!

We can’t wait to be sharing the company of our military veterans along this watery trail and many others…as we ascend the summit together!

From the 59 Veterans Project: MOH Winner Douglas Munro!



With over 100 million military personnel in uniform during its many years of conflict, World War II is the largest and most widespread war in human history. Its casualties are staggering: with over 60 million civilians killed and over 25 million military personnel losing their lives from over 60 countries around the globe.
Every branch of the U.S. Military was supremely engaged in WWII including the United States Coast Guard. And in its illustrious history of saving lives and rescuing people at sea, only one member of the U.S. Coast Guard was ever awarded America’s highest award for valor: The Medal of Honor. And it occurred during World War II.
His was Signalman First Class Douglas A. Munro. His MOH citation reads in part: “For extraordinary heroism and conspicuous gallantry in action above and beyond the call of duty as Officer-in-Charge of a group of Higgins boats, engaged in the evacuation of a Battalion of Marines trapped by enemy Japanese forces at Point Cruz, Guadalcanal, on September 27, 1942…” As it is, Munro saved hundreds of Marines that day, and in the process contributed greatly to America’s first military victory in WWII. During his valiant act he also gave the “last full measure of devotion,” and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor and also the Purple Heart Medal in May 1943 by President Roosevelt at the White House.  Accepting the awards were his parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Munro of Cle Elum, Washington.

All of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT proudly salute the United States Coast Guard and all our military veterans for whom our project is intended.  We also remember and salute Douglas A. Munro, Coast Guardsman and hero of the Battle of Guadalcanal.  His valor and gallantry will never be forgotten!

To learn more about Signalman First Class Douglas A. Munro and the Battle of Guadalcanal, please visit this website: bit.ly/1QeXnRr.  And to learn about our 59 VETERANS PROJECT and our enterprise to teach and help veterans transition into viable careers in 4k/3D photography and videography, please visit our headquarters company here: http://59veterans.com/. May the spirit and heroism of Douglas A. Munro and other heroic veterans inspire us and guide us as we ascend the summit together!

The Ultimate Sailing Song…

Dear Song List:

Last week I had the pleasure of sharing three of the greatest sailing songs ever put to pen and sonic beauty.  But somehow I forgot to include my favorite and what I consider the greatest sailing song ever.  It’s by David Gray, one of the most phenomenal songwriters of the last 10+ tens.  And like so many others by him, it is definitely phenomenal and about a lot of things and not just sailing.  Deep and emotional things they are that you just have to listen to…now…now…now.

And, as a bonus, I’ve included an equally phenomenal live performance of the artist singing Sail Away for your viewing as well as listening pleasure!

–Patrick The Poet

59 VETERANS PROJECT: The National Park of American Samoa Rocks!




In the American Territory of American Samoa is the National Park of American Samoa.  It is distributed across three separate islands named Tutuila, Ofu  and Ta’ū in the Pacific.  The park consists of beautiful scenic views, coral reefs, tropical rainforests, fruit bats and the Samoan culture.  It is very popular for numerous outdoor activities including hiking, biking, swimming and snorkeling.  Of the park’s 13,500 acres, 9,000 acres is land and 4,500 is coral reefs and ocean.  It is the only American national park south of the Equator.

Of our 59 national parks, American Samoa is definitely a prime oceanic locale to visit and spend an enchanted vacation enjoying sun, surf, beautiful beaches and a host of natural treasures not found anywhere else on earth.  And we at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT can’t wait to experience and share this island paradise with our military veterans who we will be teaching 3D photography and videography.

To learn more about the National Park of American Samoa, visit this fabulous site: http://www.britannica.com/place/National-Park-of-American-Samoa.  And to learn about the 59 VETERANS PROJECT, come visit us online at http://www.59veterans.com.  Give us a like and a share and come join us in our project to help veterans and transition them to viable career opportunities!

As much of the nation is experiencing some pretty cold temperatures this holiday, we think it is the perfect time to share some warm thoughts and images to help get you through the day.

Did you know one of the National Parks is in the Virgin Islands? St. John encompasses 7000 plus acres and offers some pretty breathtaking views from many of its hills, valleys and beaches. It has an underwater trail on Trunk Bay Beach (pictured) and is considered one of the Top 10 Beaches in the world.

And did you know that the 59 VETERANS PROJECT is a major operation in the process of creating an amazing enterprise that will be of tremendous benefit to both our military veterans and national parks? Visit our official website to learn more. And come join us! Here: http://www.59veterans.com
