You stay up for 16 hours

He stays up for days on end.

You take a warm shower to help you wake up

He goes days or weeks without running water

You complain of a "headache", and call in sick

He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.

You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends

He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.

You make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket

He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags

soldier.jpg


You talk trash about your "buddies" that aren't with you

He knows he may not see some of his buddies again

You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls

He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists

You complain about how hot it is

He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.

You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong

He doesn't get to eat today

Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes

He wears the same things for weeks, but makes sure his weapons are clean.

You go to the mall and get your hair redone.

He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.

You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over

He's told he will be held over an extra 2 months.

You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.

He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.

You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.

He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.

You roll your eyes as a baby cries

He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.

You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.

He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why he is fighting.

kissforehead.jpg


You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.

He hears the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.

You see only what the media wants you to see.

He sees the broken bodies lying around him.

SoldierDeadChild.jpg


You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.

He does exactly what he is told even if it puts his life in danger

xinsrc_89f45d87ffb14951b9da0251978d1194.jpg


You stay at home and watch TV.

He takes whatever time he is given to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

_41953998_afp416shadow.jpg


You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.

He tries to sleep but gets woken by mortars and helicopters all night long

I love the troops. My cousins and friends are over there right now. I wish I could be there with them but with my medical condition I cant. Our troops goes through allot and people dont see it as they think they are. They are too busy blaming people when they need to see what our men are fighting for. I believe we arnt fighting a war over terror, I believe we are fighting a war for our friends, family and neighbors freedom to live.

My friend who is over there sent me this. And out of respect I reposted it everywhere because I have known him since child birth and knowing how hard it is over there I did this. I do send care packages, In fact Ive donated quite a bit of money for personal care over there. So I am doing my part.


Sadly I posted this on another forum and got nothing but bashed on. Who cares if its a chain letter or not. Thats not the point of this post.

anyone on here in the military besides me?

I'm not military, but I live like 10 minutes from Fort Benning, so this kind of stuff hits close to home.

The super bitch Cindy Sheehan (or whatever her name is) is coming to town next week to lead a rally against the "baby killing war-mongers".

Great post!! Saw that in an email once...

Here are a few things posted on my America's Army clan site

For all the free people that still protest, you're welcome,
We protect you and you are protected by the best.
Your voice is strong and loud, but who will fight for you?
No one standing in your crowd.

We are your fathers, brothers, sons,
wearing the boots and carrying the guns.
We are the ones that leave all we own,
to make sure your future is carved in stone.

We are the ones who fight and die.
We might not be able to save the world, well at least we try.
We walked the paths to where we are at
and we want no choice other than that.

So when you rally your group to complain,
take a look in the back of your brain.
In order for the flag that you love to fly
wars must be fought and young men must die.

We came here to fight for the ones we hold dear,
if that's not respected, we would rather stay here.
So please stop yelling and put down your signs,
and pray for those behind enemy lines.

When the conflict is over and all is well,
be thankful that we chose to go through hell.
