YOUR ALARM GOES OFF; YOU HIT THE SNOOZE AND SLEEP FOR ANOTHER 10 MINUTES
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 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 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 walks the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists
YOUR WIFE/MOTHER/ 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 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 SEE ONLY WHAT THE MEDIA WANTS YOU TO SEE
He sees the broken bodies lying around him
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 crawls under a tank for shade and a 5 minute nap, only to be awakened by gunfire
YOU SIT THERE AND JUDGE HIM, SAYING THE WORLD IS PROBABLY A WORSE PLACE BECAUSE OF MEN LIKE HIM. IF ONLY THERE WERE MORE MEN LIKE HIM!
WHO is HE?
HE IS SACRIFICING HIS TODAY FOR OUR FUTURE !!!!
