My Father's Voice

United States Military Forces
American Patriots

It is through a little girls eyes, who grew up, with the plight of many Veteran's, whom were traumatized in some capacity, but especially, spinal chord injury's.

My Father's Voice

"Never Give Up"

Have you gone where a Veteran goes, when they need a helping hand?

Are you listening to their cries, echoing across the land?

Some went to war, some came home, many they did not

Some lay maimed in hospitals, that others have forgot.

Can you imagine how it feels, to be cleaned like a baby or hand fed your meals?

Some took drugs to ease the pain, nothin to lose, nothin to gain.

Some just gave up. Can you blame them?

I hear

My Father's Voice

"Why won't they help me?"

I am,
My Father's Voice

Semper Fi

Still carrying the torch!

I wrote this in 1989, after my Daddy passed on.

Daddy came to me in a dream, shortly after he passed.

He was no longer paralyzed. He was walking again.

In the dream, he repeatedly told me

"Never give up" "Never give up"

At the time, I didn't understand the significance of his words.

I understand now.

I have never forgotten the dream.

I will never forget, I will never give up.

In Memory of Gysgt. Edward Henry Yablinsky, author of
"Three Flags East"

Retired/Deceased, USMC, World War II, Korean and Viet Nam,
paralyzed, 100% disabled veteran


Dedicated to all men and women, who serve, have served,
fighting for our freedom.

You are Not, Forgotten!

When Daddy was alive, he gave to many Non Profit Charities and the Veteran's organizations, monthly.

He always had compassion for others and never felt sorry for himself, nor wanted pity for himself.

He was and always will be, The Few, The Proud, The Gunny!

Did you know there are many Non profit organizations in our country?

That many are Veteran's?

Who take care of themselves, and rely on donation's to assist not only veterans, but others less fortunate, in our communities?

America’s hero's need your help.

These are our hero's.

They fought for all of us

#CSINY Gary Sinise


The Paralyzed Veteran's of America,

is just one of many such organizations, helping our communities and those who have served our country.

They and their families have made "unbelievable" sacrifices for us!

Do you hear their voices?

Will you help?

Thanks for your support of PVA. I am a life member and Vietnam Vet. This is my first post ever and I will leave with a question.

How can one Republican Senator from Texas block passage of S 1963?

Will you support this important legislation to provide much needed care to veterans?

That is a very touching post. You must be outraged at what our federal government has become. A little girl in 1965... I was 9. I remember, though it didn't touch me as closely as it did you. My focus is in a different direction but God bless you in you work to reach out for our solders.

My dad was a WWII Vet also he fought in 7 battle campaigns from Anzio to Normandy His brother my uncle was killed at the battle of the Casserine Pass in North Africa.
What really bothers me the most is how complacent this country has grown to the cost of freedom.
Sorry if I offend any but we belly ache when we lose a couple of hundred men a month in Afgahistan. And the loss of life if even 1 is a terrible thing but when our fathers died tens of thousands in one day defending our freedoms it just irkes me that we are ready to pull out of Afgahistan when our enemy is still alive and well just waiting for the politicians to lose their resolve

I understand what you are saying Joseph! I don't like our troops being put in harms way, anywhere or anytime. What concerns me is the tremendous influx of people coming across our borders and the violence they bring with them. Many of them are being trained by hezbollah, terrorist and invading our nation. We need to protect our borders from anyone who wants to kill us.

I'm my father's son. I'm Edward Henry Yablinsky Jr. I believe that I must set the record straight in Honor of my father's memory this memorial weekend. Fist my father joined the USMC 1946 at the age 18 therefore he was not a WWIl vet maybe a post war vet. He was an Korean vet. Which he received an Bronze Star I believe it was for volunteering to fight up ln the front lines to revenge his younger brothers death who was killed at Heart Break Ridge. He was in the In the Mews papers for this valor. Occurs my mom was pissed she was pregnant with older brother who latter served with the distinguished 173rd Airborne in 1970 he received a purple heart. Now back to my father he was not a Vietnam vet he was an Vietnam era vet. He had orders 1965 for Vietnam but got into a car accident and was paralyzed from the chest down with 19 years with the Marines'. He never took pain pills or drank to wash his troubles away. He said that he wanted to set an example for his kids
I was raised with my father longer than mu siblings. I never heard him complain about the US government and treatment that he received. In fact he was very grateful. I'm an Army era vet. I don't go to the VA hospital because I'm provided health insurance with my current employer. I hate the way though how some vets take advantage of this system example 90% disability check for sleep apnea. I have sleep apnea and never applied. My dad had honor not how to take advantage of the system. I close with this statement SEMPER FI dad. Your loving son!!!!

My brother set the record straight but didn't finish but I will as the public need not be deceived by this woman of whom lived with my father off and on with 2 out of her 4 husbands. Im not too internet savvy so I'll send this as a test and this. Do not believe this woman Dolores she not only lied about her son being a navy seal but also about "her fathers voice" she made his life miserable as he was forced out of the usmc with a medical discharge when he was paralyzed via a car accident, he was a good dad.
"My son was a navy seal" I'm a 2 blue star mom"
The only thing you are is a terroist and very clever word play manipulator and ruined your families as well as mine and my brothers because when ever anyone calls you on lies and deception you begin a ruthless and un relentless attack on that person as you did with me and Eddie.
I served as a volunteer member with the 173rd airborne brigade therefore if anyone knows more about the military more than you that would be me not you with wrong information you texted about dad. He was NOT a ww2 vet not even a ww2 era vet I'll leave the rest alone. You've always been about you and embellish by way of obscured info about you however, you do have bragging rights don't you know?
Your son wanted to be a navy seal as a lot of television educated kids do these days. He was not a seal let's get the record straight 2 blue star hero. He signs up and is accepted for a crack in the vigorous basic training base on Coronado island. He was booted out and sent for duty on a navy ship and your version of why is because he fell down and broke his neck, really? You've been a liar all your life I think he rang the bell nevertheless, he's on the ship with out a seal badge because he's not a seal. Did you forget to mention that he was sleep walking on that ship for no other reason than to get a medical discharge and it worked. It seems you either didn't know that either or you were high on pot with your friends and dreamed he earned the seal badge. Never before had he ever sleep walked and when he came home your hero he didn't sleep walk either. At the end of this age we will all stand before God for judgement continue your internet lies to lift yourself up but they say when the light goes on cock roaches scatter. 2star mom - one star = 1 star mom. I could minus the other star you deluded family terrorist evil crazy wonan. You are an LVN nurse not an RN. Your ex husband biker had a police friend not you as stated on your resume first in line of course.
D Gainey (divorced) D Yeatts (divorced) D Andalora (divorced) D Bergman (divorced)
"The definition of insanity is someone doing the same thing over and over again waiting for change to happen". By the way, why do you troll the internet stealthing by using and mixing your 4 husbands last name such as Dolores Bergman Andalora? Don't tell you'll deny it or invent a redicuolius excuse. You're nothing but the birth mother of the 1st son you gave up for adoption was able to immediately convince him to type letters and accuse my brother of his sons death and you didn't even know him and at your request he mailed those hateful lying satan inspired letters to me, my 4 children, and my brother who was still suffering just weeks after the funeral and you and the other pile of dung didn't tell us those demonic inspired letters were written much less sent them thus you poisoned my children's minds and secretly still do because you're pure evil a stalker and a liar.

I didn't mention that the baby you gave up for adoption after he was born you later cast blame on grandma, mom and dad but again you do lie dad wanted you to keep your baby and proved this by buying the best baby furniture and other necessities at the broadway dept store in Huntington Beach. You trashed your precious son because you wanted what was best for you your promiscuous life style and drug parties. Also what I forgot to mention is the quest you went on to find him when he was in his late 20s you didn't even know him when you convinced him to type and send me Eddie and my kids those hateful letters and lies that Eddie was to blame for his sons death. LIAR TERROIST DAUGHTER OF SATAN! You trash anyone who speaks truth about you and never can you be forgiven for poisoning my kids minds never you also found the relatives and made me look bad too especially when I rebuked you for declaring in you FB profile if it's still there "I am a voice in the wilderness" blasphemer liar John the Baptist was not you but I suppose your beguiling ways convinced a lot of stupid people you are a voice in....yea you're a voice alright a voice straight out of the pits of hell

Another evil thing you did in secret was with my daughter publish a fictional book that I was in a cult you liar terroist infiltrator troll and when the book was published Eddie told me you and her got in a atgument over how much money you wanted but it never sold anyway. You seduced her for the love of money further i as well as you only went to about 4 home meetings to check this out but of course you're not in the book are you now. This doesn't make a cult you. You poisoned my family devil. You will stop at nothing to try and destroy anyone who speaks the truth. "Money is the root of all evil" and you milked thousands out of dad evil doer. You will be rewarded for all the terroist hell you've caused even for poisoning your new found son it would of been better for him if you'd left him alone you seduced and poisoned your abandoned son birth mommy. Done
