♫We got a fightin side a mile wide but we pray for peace, cause its mostly us that end up servin over seas♫
One of my friends posted this on his facebook. War. one word. One word that changes the life of so many other people. War is something that I dont take lightly, along with everysingle other person on this planet. Where I come from most boys my age normally are doing one of very few things. But one major thing they are doing is signing their lives away to the United States Military. Its a way of life, and for most people in my small home town, it is their way out. They all know the risk when they sign those papers. But that doesnt mean that they want war. Just because they sign the papers at a time of conflict and are in the infantry does not mean that they WANT war.
I dont pretend to know anything about politics, heck i am the first to tell you that i dont keep up with them at all. I dont vote because I dont know anything about what is going on, or who would be the best person to take care of things. I do know that I think the Military men and women do not get paid enough for what they do for our country. They sign away their lives and i think that they deserve much much more money than they get paid. I think that if you dont stand behind our troops 100% of the way then you should feel free to stand in front of them, and you take that bullet. Because they do more for you than you could ever think they could. I think that most boys in my small town use it as an out, however they tend to fall in love with it any ways.
I think that you need to think about the families of all soldiers, because they serve with the soldiers. I think that all soldiers that think they are better than the other branch need to take a bit of advice from one of my friends who is in the army “Look at what your uniform says, look before that branch. It says U.S.-United States_____ you all serve the same country, why are you going to bash that branch, why would I bash a marine, when i am over seas he could be the one to save my ass”
I think that every one in the military needs to take this mans advice, the other branch could be the one to come behind you and save your ass.
I dont pretend to know what we are fighting for over there. All I know is one thing. Someone is losing someone. I dont pretend to understand what it is like to fight over there, all i know is that i belong to a very military oriented family, and my brother is still not back from over there yet, and that i have alot of friends that have signed their lives away, some that still plan to. And for that every day I will stand behind them and stand up for them.
My superhero doesnt wear a cape, He wears camo. My super hero doesnt wear spandex, he wears combat gear and a helmet. My Super hero doesnt wear a mask, he wears dog tags.
Thank you to all of our men and women veterans and currently seving
