Hello, I forgot to mention something that I think is VERY IMPORTANT. After I was arrested in Gatlinberg they of course took my tri focal safety glass's. I CANNOT read small print without them. When we got to jail, they handed me a few papers to sign, I asked if I could have my glass's so I could read what I was signing. The answer was a big no! I told them I did not want to sign something that I could not read, they intimidated me into signing those papers. I was told sign or else????? They actually had to point with their fingers where they wanted me to sign and of course under the stress and pressure, I signed. I have NO CLUE what I signed.


Then, when my ex wife arrived to get me out I was again asked to sign papers. Again, I asked for my glass's. I was told by one smart a$$ that if I didn't sign that they would just have to put me back in jail! Another friendlier guard said that the envelope holding my personnel belongings did not have reading glass's on the list of contents. (this person was a little bit more friendlier). Well, the smart a$$ used his finger to point to the place I was supposed to sign and date which I did. The friendly person opened the bag holding my belongings and my reading glass's fell out!!! He said he did not know why they were not on the list?


I just thought Mr. Burton might like to know this?


Thank you and please have a great week!!!


Michael Sandstrom, A "True American"


To: Mr. Benjamin Burton, Attorney at law.


    : The Honorable Judge


CC: All American Soldiers, past, present dead or alive.


       All Citizens of these United States of America.




I, Michael G Sandstrom do hereby request that all charges against me be dismissed.


I, an American Veteran of the Viet Nam war era sworn an oath to our country to defend, protect and if need be, die to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights of these United States of America. I am still bound by this oath and must by all means uphold these rights not only for myself but, for every American whom have gave their lives in the past and present.




OK, let's go back to the beginning of this day. My normal working hours are 11:00 PM to 7:30 AM starting Sunday (my Monday) night through Thursday night (my Friday). My normal sleeping habits are approx 8:30 AM too 4:00 PM. I try to change to first shift hours on weekends because that is when everybody else is up. On this morning, I started by changing all the tie rods on the dune buggy. They were more than wore out so I was afraid to drive it too far because I did not want to cause or be in an accident. I drove it and noticed that the front wheels no longer wobbled! I was ticked to death! Because of my anxiety attacks from the war and other bad things in my life, (Divorce, loss of a 3 month old grand child, loss of a job after 22 years etc.) my doctor prescribed zanex and valiums and made me promise not to drink on them which I did promise.




I took one valium and put a couple in my front pocket just in case I would need them later and headed out on my USUAL JOURNEY through Alcoa and Maryville on my buggy with the Viet Nam Vet tag on it and Thee American flag flying high and above the buggy for all to see. I also started playing Amazing Grace over and over non stop. MANY people in Alcoa and Maryville including the police have seen me make this trip many times. I drive through both Wal Marts and business districts playing this song in honor of all my friends and all other Americans that have died for U.S. and Thee Constitution and Bill of Rights. I have been saluted, high fived and thumbs upped by 100's if not thousands of folks in this area. What really makes me happy is the children that actually stop and look at me in my strange vehicle and of course I MUST beep my little horn and wave at them and they usually wave back and smile (so don't their parents). After making this trip 3 times I thought I would make the "ultimate trip", the trip through Sevierville and Gatlinburg. This was to be my ultimate salute to all Americans, past and present that had died or fought for our freedom, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights from our fore fathers to our present day soldiers. You see, this was right before the 4th of July.




I started my trip from Boyd's Creek up 66. I knew the traffic would be heavy and that is what I wanted! I did not have to drive fast, everybody next to me were hearing Amazing Grace, they seen the flag and most of them seen my tag. As usual, most people were waving, saluting, high fiving or giving me the thumbs up! I was a very proud American, happy to see that a lot of people really did care! (At one time I was ashamed of being a Viet Nam Vet, when we came home, we were not heroes, we were baby killers etc.) Finally, one day, we became heroes?? Well, when I found that out, I changed all my tags on all my vehicles, I was no longer ashamed; I actually started feeling proud to be an American again! (I was 17 when I joined, I did not want communism to come to our shores and take over my/our people).




OK, let's get back to this day. It was hot, the traffic was slow, and I was thirsty and needed gas. I stopped at the gas station that was at the Wears Valley and 66 intersections. I filled my tank, went to pee and purchased a bottle of water then continued my trip up to Gatlinburg.  Too be honest with you, I was worried about heat stroke, I have seen younger people than I die from it and I am sure I am not immune to it. I have seen too many younger people die and that breaks my heart. That is why I no longer fear death, I ALMOST welcome it. I have been too hell, there is only one other place to go. The ONLY reason I do not want to die is because my parents are still alive and I do not know who they would take it? My children would get over it soon enough but, what about them? I made my sons PROMISE me to out live me and that is one promise I will hold them too!!




OK, back to this day. I made the trip around the Gatlinburg strip 3 times! I was playing Amazing Grace over and over non stop. I was getting the high fives thumbs up etc. Again I felt proud to be an American! I am not real familiar with Gatlinburg but I did notice that there were a lot of motorcycles parked at the top of the mountain. At the end of my third trip, I stopped at this Mountain Top bar. (I was again on "fire" and thirsty). I had been driving from sun up to almost sun down. I knew it was time for me to go home before it turned night on me. I had NEVER been in this place but since there were "bikers" there I thought it must be an alright place for what I consider us, the "outsiders". I am not a biker I am not special, I am me, a "TRUE AMERICAN!" I still uphold Thee Constitution and Thee Bill of Rights even though I think "our" country has all but deleted them.




Yes, I was burning up, still worried about heat stroke but I knew my day was over. I purchased a few screwdrivers and some I gave to other people who were there. Is that a bad thing to do? I even met a couple and sit with them and we started talking about almost everything. I told them I was going to turn on my stereo in the buggy because the music that was playing there was not good in my opinion and they agreed. I asked the bar tender if it would be ok and he told me yes so I walked outside the fence and turned it on. This couple and I continued talking and this lady that worked there said there had been a complaint by the "city" that my music was too loud? I told the couple I would go turn it down and while outside the fence, I asked them if that was too loud? They told me that they could barely hear it so I came back in. I purchased them a drink and myself. I also gave away a couple that I had ordered because there were some interesting ladies looking my way and I thought what the heck, just maybe you will get lucky??




Well, the couple decided to leave and I was by myself and I was not catching any ladies and it was late so I thought it was time for me to leave also.


I left; I DID NOT turn the stereo back up. I was hot, tired and ready to go home. I was almost out of Gatlinburg when I seen the blue lights, I turned off the main road and stopped. I was never told why I was stopped and to this day I do not know why? He asked me for my driver license. (My driver's license, fishing license and insurance card are in the same slot in my billfold so I pulled them all out and handed them to him. The stop made me nervous of course; I was shaking like a leaf. I knew I had not done anything wrong, I was not speeding, I did not run a stop light, I was not driving all over the road, I did not have a wreck.) To be honest with you, I thought he would check my record and see that nothing was wrong and send me on my way. I was VERY WRONG! The first words out of his mouth were for me to get out of the vehicle. I could tell at that instant I was going to jail, it did not matter what I had done or had not done.




It is my gut feeling that someone at Mountain Top told him I was an easy target or that the fact that I was driving the ONLY DUNE BUGGY in the whole world that looked like that made me an easy target. I had not done anything illegal but, I was "different". Different from everybody else. I was not driving a "normal car" or motorcycle. I was driving a "sore thumb", something that stood out against everything people consider normal. To be honest with you, I think that IF I had been driving my 1984 Dodge Pick Up or my 1994 GEO Tracker I would have never been stopped. MANY people in Gatlinburg were proud of me for what I was doing.




Hello, hope all is well with you and yours. I found out my red blood cell count is low, I am anemic?? (not sure what that means and did not know I was anemic until after arrest) Attached is a copy of my blood test results from last month. I was at the docs to get a shot today and got/received a copy of blood results while I was there. ( I have to get a shot every two weeks) I am scheduled for ANOTHER colonoscopy next month! (yuck, had one 5 years ago and they found two polyps and removed them.) Also having bottom 4 teeth removed just before incident did not help. That is why I was always using the mouth wash, got to keep those germs killed! Did not know there was that much alcohol in mouth wash! Will be fitted for new teeth next week and will have them in about a month! I'll be able to eat again!!




 When you look at the attachment, everything in the middle with an "L" next to it means that that test was low. I have always given blood 3 or 4 times a year to Medic when they come to Denso, may have to stop now? I always thought it was great to save somebody with my own blood here instead of spilling it in foreign country for a Country that no longer lives up to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Oh well, times have changed. I am taking vitamins now but cannot take "iron" until after the colonist. (That is what I need too build my red blood cells up!)




  You know, I NEVER considered myself a terrorist, I would DIE for any American! I did not know the "new" terrorist was 21 years old, never been in the military BUT, you can give them a gun and a badge and they can now TERRORIZE every American!! What happened while I was asleep?? God, I feel so sorry for my sons and grand sons. My time is short but, what about their time? Did I not "help" their future??? Did I not help YOURS???






(Ben), You consider yourself a "Constitutionalist", a believer in the Bill of Rights. If this is true, I want YOU TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT!!! I'll get a BILLION people behind ya!! And, if this is true, I want to have some deep talks with you. Of course, if money is more important, I will understand. ( Too bad our fore-fathers lost EVERYTHING!, family monies etc.) And guess what, I am willing to do the same thing they did.....






If worse does come to worse, as MY LAWYER, please promise me one thing, If I am buried on monument hill, my folks get the flag. If I am buried at the bottom of my mountain, (Pine Springs Baptist Church) make sure they get the flag I have earned. Give my land to the Indian Orphanage's, ALL TRIBES, just one stipulation, "they" teach the old ways.


 Not the white man ways, the way to treat mother earth with respect, not to abuse but use and support.




OK brother, my "fate" is in your hands AND I WILL NOT BLAME YOU because of the outcome. Lets do this thing,


In God I trust,


Michael Sandstrom

The Real Meaning of Words







Best friends 



Happy 4th of

........... .....let' s get this started now,
So it will be out there on the fourth!!!!









All of our other military personnel, where ever they may

Support all of the troops defending our Country.

And God
Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our
To them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July

We must never forget who
Gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be
Eternally grateful.

I watched the flag
Pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine
Saluted it,
And then he stood at ease..

I looked at
Him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square
And eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men
Like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign
How many mothers' tears?

How many pilots' planes
Shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers'
Graves ?
No, freedom isn't free

I heard the sound of Taps
One night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler

And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times

That Taps had meant 'Amen,'

When a flag had draped a
Of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and
With interrupted lives.

Thought about a graveyard

At the bottom of the sea

Of unmarked graves in
Arlington .
No, freedom isn't free.

Enjoy Your Freedom
&God Bless Our Troops

You receive this, please stop for a moment

Say a
for our servicemen & women.

Of all the gifts you could give
A  US Soldier, Sailor or Airman, Prayer is the very best


Actually the starting date should be February 1970, this starting date is the date I reinlisted so I could purchase my 1st car! I received a $300 dollar bonus for reinlisting for almost another year. I purchase an old Volkswagen with this money. My folks were to poor to loan me the money. Back in these years the Constitution and Bill of rights really meant something. Now, should I be proud to have served this country because as far as I am concerned, the Constitution and Bill of Rights are no longer worth the paper there were wrote on. Am I wrong for feeling like this??? Would you burn this peice of paper?

  Illinois, 1970      Burnsville NC, 1970 before going over seas.


My sisters and I after Basic Training @ Ft Cambell KY, May, 1970

NO!!! I will NEVER let ANYONE in America forget those who have paid, or are paying
the price of YOUR/OUR/MY Freedom, not as long as there is breath in my body!!!
