Info angel. What rules the earth? Info angel. Worlds ever-living deities of Creation, target Times for centuries, and us with eternal lives. God's Creation is Completely, change, the Board is not subject. The life of humans is not at the scenario of man, our desires. And the fact that the Terrans in the soul, the destiny of man, the people, the way to God. Eternity had No one, Nothing lost, everything Was, Is and Will be at Centuries did not shift, his time. In God of the dead does not exist. The body is perishable, eternal life through reincarnation on the spiritual energy level, lies in the soul of the Mother. Trust the soul, the fate of their. Live the truth, do not be afraid, and that inherent in the soul, your fortune, not around. All that is necessary for human lives, given by God, mentality, speech communication unites people. If a person uses a speech Communication of a people, his thoughts and mentality of the people, it separates his people. Knowledge of the speech of the peoples glorifies a man. The soul is not replaceable rule the earth, it is the wish, control the lives of earthlings. You have a lot of life paths? Which way to go? Some would go their way. passed you many times in the God-man. The first level is over, the war between peoples. At the same time, Stalin, Lenin, war forever rattle in the lands of the first level, and dinosaurs running around the lands of 1-2 levels. Military clashes takes place throughout 100 L. the time of the collapse of the Empire, the people captured her. Constraint of God's Creation applies to the aggressor in Ukraine, he did everything to capture her, she lay at his feet. And now not lost his desire, concentrating forces around Ukraine. But you can't do it, not everything depends on his desire. He could not divide the Ukrainian people and the grounders. In God's Creation people are equal, the unification of the earthlings is by FORGIVENESS, asking for forgiveness for his actions, intentional and not intentional, forgiving others. No other way. Earthlings are by me, understanding the essence of development of the peoples of the first level. God is the Creator, not judging. He does not judge his creation, but gives a chance for correction. God forgives and tells us. The faith of Nations races in the one God will unite earthlings. Empire not of Gods Creation, and grasping the hands of the aggressor. In Russia not to forgive someone. Russia for 100 l will come with maps of Earthlings, like the Soviet Union and other empires. It will be an enclave Muscovy with new generations, not waging war. For 200 L. the process of disintegration for China, the EU, NATO, USA and other Nations in accordance with God's partition of the lands of the Nations. People live in this God's Earth in peace and friendship, has blossomed in the spiritual, conversational and traditions of the peoples worldly States. Invited to the information the angel on my page.

Does anyone have a Marine schedule for a MEU out of Norfolk, VA in November 2019? I'd like to connect with other MoM's who have Marines leaving at that time
I am looking for any Marines who served in 26th MEU in Okinawa, Japan in the 1960's. I have a retired Marine client that used to go from Japan to Vietnam to switch out or repair the Cryptography equipment but his records don't show any time in Vietnam.
