In tribute to our soldiers, these unsung heroes!

 

 

 

 

Your alarm clock rings, you press the button and sleep another ten minutes; It will remain awake several days in a row.

 

* *

You take a hot shower to help you start your day off right; It will be days without running water.

 

* *

 

You complain of a headache and call in sick work;

It is shot while others are injured, it continues anyway.

 

* *

You put your jersey anti-war protest and does not support our troops

and join your friends at the brewery;

He continues to fight for your right to put this sweater.

 

* *

 

You make sure your cell phone is based;

It clings to the suspended cross with his dog tag.

 

* *

 

You hold all sorts of comments on your colleagues who are not with you;

He knows it will review perhaps never friends.

 

* *

 

You walk on the beach watching the pretty girls;

He walks the streets in search of insurgents or terrorists.

 

* *

 

You complain of oppressive heat that is outside;

It bears his combat gear and fears to remove his steel helmet even wiping his forehead.

 

* *

 

You're angry because you are used in class 5 minutes longer;

He comes to learn that remain two months.

 

 

You will dine with friends and you complain that there is an error with your order;

It will not have the opportunity to eat today.

 

* *

 

The woman will make your bed and your laundry;

It will bear the same clothes for weeks but will ensure that its weapons are always cleaned.

 

* *

 

You go to the barber to the mall;

. It can not brush their teeth today.

 

* *

 

You call your new conquest and agree to an appointment for this evening;

He patiently awaits the mail to see if he will receive a letter from his beloved.

 

* *

 

You do kiss and hug your tender half as each day;

It takes very strong feeling in his letters on its sweet fragrance.

 

* *

 

You are exasperated crying of a baby;

He receives a letter with pictures of his new baby and wondered if they meet one day.

 

* *

 

You criticize your government shouting loud and clear that war does nothing;

He sees the innocent tortured and killed by the people and remembers why he fights.

 

* *

 

You hear jokes about the war and you care about others like him;

He heard gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.

 

 

 

You do not see what the media want to show you;

He sees the bodies on the floor around him.

 

* *

 

Your parents ask you to go to a race at the supermarket, you do not go out;

It does exactly what is requested.

 

* *

 

You stay at home to watch TV;

It takes time it can to call or write home,

sleep and eat if he has more time.

 

* *

 

You lie in a soft bed with fluffy pillows and are comfortable

It goes down in an armored vehicle for a little shade for a nap some

minutes to be interrupted by gunfire.

 

 

 

 

There are only two forces that have offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the soldier.

 

One died to save your soul, the other for your freedom.

VEE,

 

Thanks for this beautiful tribute to our soldiers who sacrifice so much .

I wish everyone in the USA could read it .It is so true how so many, especially our young people do not recognize the sacrifice of our soldiers .

Vee, I am going to move this to the Veteran's Tributes section. That way it will stay. Anything posted here (shooting the breeze) will disappear after 30 days.
