"A Soldier's Dying Heart"



Released November 13, 2002


 
A new book is out - it reveals the wrongs being perpetrated against
veterans of the Persian Gulf War through the eyes of one veteran.  This is
a must read if you want to know some of the truths that the government does
not want you to know about.
About the book - The one SOLDIER that I want to thank more than all is
Command Sergeant Major Thomas J. Clark for showing me early in my career of
what a soldier is all about, for being a soldier and friend for the last
eighteen years and being there through thick and thin, good and bad. I'm
one of those guys that only knows how to read one publication and that is
the Army Times. To this day, I still order it to see what is going on in
the Army, since I am a soldier at heart and still praise soldiers still
putting their lives on the line for all of us each and every day.

This all started in late 1991 after arriving back to Germany after Desert
Shield/Storm. I was a normal aggressive soldier and family man that had a
whole career ahead of him until one day when it all started falling apart.
Now I take medications to wake up, to go to sleep, and anything in between,
just to function semi-normally on a daily basis. The only people that
understand are the other soldiers just like me that are having the same
problem, and sometimes I have to look and see what is going on in the real
world. The secret is the Government does not care about you unless you are
under the ground, and then they don't care what you have done for them. -

Authors Biography
Randy Lynn Stamm is a 42-year-old retired Army Sergeant First Class and a
Gulf War Veteran. Randy was born in March of 1960 in Dallas Texas and went
to Mesquite High School from 1975 to 1978 in Mesquite Texas and now holds a
Graduate Degree in Information Systems Engineering with a Minor in Plan and
Design.
 
Sergeant First Class Stamm served in the Army from 14 February 1980 to 01
May of 1995 in various positions and the highest being a Platoon Sergeant.
Sergeant First Class Stamm took the early retirement in May of 1995 due to
having major medical problems from the gulf war and that is what prompted
this creation.
Randy dedicates his military service to his parents Larry and Wanda Logan
on Gun Barrel City Texas and Grand father Shawlver (Pappy) Reeda Lewis of
Quitman Texas. Every time he was on leave during his military career he
always had to go visit just to get counseling and told to stay in the Army
until retirement.
 
Since retiring for the Army in May of 1995 and having joined Corporate
America and not knowing that the politics were too much and having lost 3
jobs due to medical problems. From the 3 different Corporations one being
GTE and the other one is ARIS Corporation and the last one being Alcatel
USA, Inc. Now being rated at 70% disability with 100% non-employability
from the Veterans Administration after a 7-year battle with the Waco Texas
Regional Office, but they never tell you that you will loose your
retirement if you draw disability. Now Mr. Stamm had filed a claim with the
Social Security Administration in Austin Texas and is now settled due to
waiting on their lengthy decision process Completed in July 2002.
 
The key is to have all your documentation from the time you leave the
service and back up everything that you say and do, then remember the hurry
up and wait it gets worse after you get out of the military. One of the
main things now is that I am a single parent of my teenage Daughter Brittni
trying to raise her and life has really changed since loosing his last 3
jobs Texas due to medical problems and no one understanding what was
happening. He says that raising a daughter alone is one of the biggest
challenges that he has ever taken in his life. But to this day he still
will do anything for her because the love is there even if its tough love
and always will be no matter what. Lastly, one thing to remember is that
you only live once and that there might not be a tomorrow.
 
So enjoy life to the fullest every day of the rest of your life. GOOD LUCK
AND GODS SPEED ______________________________________________________
