Fwd: Fw: FOR ALL THE MEN WHO FOUGHT FOR US

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 9:24 PM

I don’t know if I have 13 people to send this to, but I will try.  For us cat lovers look for the picture of the soldier with the kitteh.  It’s precious.
Hugs,
Jan
(only got up to 11.  Carry on the torch, folks…I did my best.) 🙂

Subject: FW: FOR ALL THE MEN WHO FOUGHT FOR US

Your cell phone is in your pocket.
He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.
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.
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.

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.

You are asked to do some thing by
your parents. You don’t.
He does exactly what he is told even

if it puts his life in danger.

You stay at home and watch TV.
He takes whatever time he is given

to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

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.


If you support your troops, send this
to 13 people.

REMEMBER our Troops, and do not
forget them LATER
Lest we forget –
KEEP THE CHAIN GOING
