Memoirs and Musings of Russell D. Ward
Purple Heart Recipient Patriot

              Russell has published his own story on the memoirs and musings of his lifetime. His story begins in 1947, after surviving threats of abortion, he tells the story of his family’s origins, his very adventurous youth leading to his time spent in Vietnam.  His long term drug abuse, divorce and subsequent loss of his sons led to years of exceptional experiences and situations that follow a PTSD combat wounded veteran. Russell lived through near death incidents to an actual out-of-body experience.

The book is avaliable from Amazon for $16.95 or you can purchase the ebook from Amazon for $4.89

          Russell D. Ward served in Vietnam in 1967-68 for 6 and a half Months until he was wounded during an attempt to take out a North Vietnamese machine gun position during the TET OFFENSIVE at HUE has dedicated himself to honor veteran’s causes. Now in 2016 Russell is observing 48 years since he was shot in the lower left leg by an AK-47 Semi Automatic Russian made Rifle. The wound was through much tissue and though not considered life-threatening, the subsequent surgery was not successful as too much  muscle covering (fascia) was removed, leaving much of the muscle  unprotected and bulging outward to cause much unnecessary pain and consciousness of the  wounded  area that has led to a lifetime of disability.

          After living through a haze of ten years of dependency on prescription and recreational drugs, Russell was fortunate enough to be hired by the United States Postal Service. The new opportunity instantly made him give up drugs as he wanted to make sure he would keep his job the rest of his working days. In the years afterward, he would come to regret the character assassination he served himself with his continued use of drugs. He would always wonder how better life could have been without those influences on his life.

          Over the years, Russell has developed a method of making fun of and ridiculing the matter of abusing food, drugs, alcohol, gambling and smoking cigarettes. He believes people need to make light of things they may abuse, to make them small and unimportant to make people know they can conquer these habits

Help Wounded Veterans


Disabled Veterans Rated 30% and Higher VA Compensation, Spousal and Dependent’s Stipend Allowance Increase (NOT COLA)


            There are many Disabled American Veterans who receive compensation for combat wounds, many diseases and sicknesses that amount to 30% or more. These disabled veterans also receive a small stipend amount for their spouses and dependents.

              Many of these veterans who do not qualify for Social Security suffer severe financial burdens as their compensation is their only source of income. For many years after a 30% and higher rated Disabled Veteran goes through life, they are only given a small amount of money to assist with their expenses for having a spouse and or dependents. This is also especially true after a Veteran and Spouse turns age 62 because the veteran may not qualify to receive money from Social Security meaning the spouse cannot collect half of their spouse’s amount as in cases of  married couples who do qualify for Social security.


              Spouses and Dependents of Disabled Veterans also assist and endure the inconveniences and agonies of physical handicaps of their disabled veteran. Spouse’s and dependent’s, many times have to give up their very own personal employment and life choices to care for their disabled spouse or parent veteran. There are also many challenges a spouse or dependent must confront on a daily basis due to a disabled veteran’s mental state of PTSD that in many cases allows the disabled veteran to stay at home to be cared for by the spouse or dependent instead of being admitted to hospitals and veterans Hospitals in particular.

              The current stipend formula the Veterans Administration uses for spouses and dependents is only a fraction of what Disabled Veterans rated 30% and more need to receive, to offset the financial security given to those spouses and dependents in exchange for their dedications to care for the Disabled Veteran. Comparatively, Social Security gives a spouse and dependents a much more generous stipend to spouses and dependents meaning spouses and dependents of Disabled Veterans 30% and more, need to be made whole and right to have spouse, dependents stipend raised to a higher percentage paid to the Veteran.

             Disabled Veterans 30% and higher who fought and represented America in times of war and military presence who are married and or have dependents need to receive a higher percentage (stipend) allowance paid to them for their spouses and dependents to help pay living expenses. The percentage of compensation that is awarded to a disabled veteran is for their income adjustment is in lieu of their existing disabilities to help pay their individual living and family expenses and for pain and suffering.

To continue Russell’s pledge to always try helping combat wounded and all veterans.
