==================== WHEN A SERVICEMAN COMES HOME
When a serviceman comes home, they find it hard...to listen to their child whine about being bored.
.....to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes.
....to be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.
....to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep.
....to be silent when people pray to God for a new car.
....to control their panic when their spouse tells them they need to drive slower.
....to be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying.
....to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.
....to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.
....to control their frustration when a colleague gripes about their coffee being cold.
...to remain calm when their child complains about having to walk the dog..
....to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.
....to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.
....to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house. Understand this.... the only thing harder than being a serviceman...
....is loving one.

are all Marines who gave their lives this week for you.
There is no media for them, not even a mention of their names.
Honor them because they gave their lives so the rest of us would not have to!
