“Great characters with such realistic pain and situations. Makes you wonder what you would do if faced with just such a time in your life. Excellent book on life changing moments. I believe people will truly feel what the main character, Mac is going through. You will see a man who is at his lowest, and how the power of God’s healing touch can work through even the most hardened of hearts. Some scary motorcycle gang action, but this adds to the true feeling of this amazing book. More, please, Dennis Snyder. Your writing is awesome!!!”

Chapter One — Work In Progress — Prequel to Yellow Rose of Texas

Chapter One

William Blandon pushed open the door of the Sgt. Alvin Jonker, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2326 in Grand Haven, Michigan. Pausing for a split second, as his eyes adjusted to the dimly lit, stale smelling club, he scanned the length of the bar. Sitting in the back corner on his favorite stool was his best friend and brother in arms, Jonathon Barnes.

William and Jonathon had signed up together right out of high school. They had spent three years in the United States Army fighting alongside each other in Afghanistan during the war on terror. Both received minor injuries when an IED killed their Sergeant about twenty feet in front of them. By the time their wounds had healed their unit was back at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Six months later they arrived back home in Grand Haven ready to get on with life.

“Hey Jon,” he called out lifting his hand in a wave. “Susan, give me a long neck bud,” pointing his finger to the end of the bar where Jon was sitting.

“Sure thing Billy,” the barmaid said as she twisted the top off of his regular beer. “How ya doing handsome?”

“Not bad, not bad at all. I think I’ve got Jon and me a line on a job.” Billy said, jumping up on his favorite stool.

“I hope this one plays out better than the last two, almost jobs. We’ve been looking for months. Washington’s got things so screwed up, its pathetic,” Jon said, sucking the last drop out of his beer and waving it at Susan.

“Tell me about it. I just read the unemployment rate for veterans is hitting close to 24%. But I also read that Texas is looking for veterans to join up with their new border patrol.”

“Aw, come on Billy. We already checked out the border patrol. The pay stinks and they got no clout.”

“I know, but this is different. The new Texas governor has asked Homeland Security to let them take over the patrol of the Texas borders lock stock and barrel. He told them that they would flip the whole bill for it. And, with all the cutbacks the Feds are doing, they jumped at the chance to cut more costs.”

“So what,” Jon said shrugging his shoulders. “Probably still low pay and no clout. And I don’t know that I want to move to Texas for ten bucks an hour.”

“No, here’s what I read. The State has eight months to take over, so they’re setting up a boot camp training outfit led by Colonel James Bowie. You remember him. He was in charge of the 3/7 Marines when we were in Afghanistan. They were a killer outfit. The guy knows what he’s doing.”

“Yeah, I remember. One of his marines kicked your butt,” he said giving him a push on his shoulder.

“Hey, he was a big dude. I didn’t have a chance and you were in no condition to help me, ya old drunk.”

“Yeah, yeah, I remember the Colonel. He’d be okay to serve under.”

“Well, anyway, they’re having a problem with the drug cartels out of Mexico and they want to put together an elite force of military trained men and women to deal with em,” He paused as he took a drink. Wiping his mouth with his sleeve he continued, “They’re gonna have different pay grades for each rank and its gonna be better than the military pay we used to get.”

“They gonna let us actually deal with these guys or will our hands be tied?”

“It sounds like we would go all out to push these bad dudes back across the border. I think it’s right up our alley. But we’ve gotta apply right away. With the unemployment rate through the roof there’ll be a lot of interest. How about it, Jon? Wanna go for it?”

Twirling his beer, Jon cocked his head, pursed his lips as if in deep thought. “Okay, dude let’s rock.”

“Susan, give us another couple beers,” Billy said with a grin of victory.

“What’re you so excited about,” Susan said setting the bottles down.

“Jon and I are heading for Texas and a new life.”

“You mean I’m gonna lose my two best lookin customers.”

“Beautiful, if you weren’t married, I’d take you with me.”

“Never happen big boy, I’d never be able to put up with your buddy always hangin around,” she said walking away.

“Drink up Jon, we gotta get to the library and sign-up.”

“The Library! They got a recruiter over there?”

“No. It’s all done online and neither one of us can afford to pay for a connection. It’s hard enough to come up with beer money.”

Purchase the Yellow Rose of Texas


“We got the jobs,” exclaimed Billy bursting into the VFW. “Were going to Texas.”

The half a dozen men sitting at the bar, in the small club, let out a cheer of victory as Billy jumped up next to Jon. “They got any more openings? I could use a few extra bucks,” slurred one of the men.

“Sorry, Peter, but you gotta have two good legs. I don’t think your prosthetic is gonna count.”

“That’s the story of my life since Iraq. Susie, how about another whiskey and water.”

“Sure thing sweetie, you want me to put it on your tab.”

“Susan, let me get that one for him,” said another man at the bar.

“Thanks buddy, but Uncle Sam will pay for it,” Peter said.

“Yeah, right. They just cut your disability again last month. They don’t give you enough to live on let alone drink. I’ve got it.”

“Thanks,” Peter mumbled staring into his glass.

“Hey Jon, we need to be in Texas by Monday morning,” Billy said taking a swig of beer.

“Monday! That only gives us four days.”

“So what. We party tonight and jump on the bus in the morning. We can sleep most of the way there and check in Monday. It’s only one o’clock now. I’ll go down to the bus station and buy our tickets. You go home and pack your bag. We’ll meet back here at five, have some dinner and party until they close.”

“Billy, this better not be another one of your schemes. It better pay off.”

“Don’t sweat it man. I’d never lead you astray. You’re my best friend”
