Many times I have thought about these guys. While sitting on the beach sippin' our margueritas, there's a REAL WAR going on out there! Yet we butter up and bitch about the most trivial things ... licking a salty tequila-ed glass inebriated and unscathed.
What is it like to be a soldier and warrior? Disciplined, focused, goal oriented and mission-minded? Trained to kill ! Eventually, though, returning to civilian life.
Do you ever really return?
I, for one, am going to hold out hope in a debt of gratitude, and pray for their return. At least for a little while, until I become the enemy. Then, I'll probably butter-up like a bitch again, and prepare my best slimy civilian shitball defense. Don't wanna get my neck snapped, ya know!
