I am a 100% disabled vet who is a resident of Spain. Am I allowed access to the Navy Exchange in Naples. I have a DOD ID card that I used in the US. Spain does not allow retired or disabled access in Rota. Thanks in advance.
It was just over 15 years ago that I returned from deployment only to be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was certainly a gut punch as we were also expecting our twin boys around the same time. I was able to remain active duty and my health remained stable until 2016. My motor skills, coordination, and a host of other disease related issues began to decline. I credit my wife - assuming the daunting role of caregiver - for the strength and persistence I needed to carry on. I find myself transitioned out of the military, and each and every day realize how lucky I am to have her in my life. She has been there for me every "step" of the way, supporting me, and adapting to life as it comes. She didn't - we didn't - ask for this, but I couldn't ask for a more compassionate and patient caregiver. Today I celebrate #MilitarySpouseAppreciationDay. Please take a moment to recognize yours, their sacrifices, and applaud their role in your life. They certainly deserve it.
Shout out to my wife Jill. She’s a nurse by trade but decided to be a stay at home mom to raise our two sons while i go on deployments. She kept our family intact through a prayerful life and by being an example to all of us. She kept me at bay when i was not doing well with my mental health. Thank you for your love, faith, support and dedication to our family. Forever grateful. #MilitarySpouseAppreciationDay -HMC Valenzuela with his wife Jill.

Navy Wounded Warrior Adaptive Sports gives sailors and coastguardsmen an opportunity to develop lasting friendships while healing from combat related and other injuries. The Zen place for becoming a better you! That’s an awesome feeling of accomplishment & no judgement zone.
https://soundcloud.com/chrisgraysmusic/soldiers-song This song was written in remembrance of everyone who wrote a letter to someone not knowing if they'd ever get it and hoping they wouldn't. The letter I'm talking about is the one you write just in case you don't make it back from patrol/movement/or mission. This song was written from the experiences and the people I met at the Warrior Games and all my friends who served in combat zones. I did not. This is the first military song I've ever written so I hope it is appreciated. I decided to stay up last night and finish it as it's fitting that it get posted on the 4th of July.
