==================== 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.

THANK YOU to Captain Alison L. Crane RN,MS Mental Heath Nurse - Observer - Trainer 7302nd Medical Training Support Battalion for the pictures and commentary so all of us may share and try to understand what only a few of us will ever truly know.

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!

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 partner, 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.

Be very grateful for the life you have in a free country where you have the right to criticize everything without having to spill one drop of sweat, blood or tears BECAUSE OF ALL OF US WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT FOR YOUR PRIVILEGES AND RIGHTS.

Societies rejection and unwillingness to understand are the least of a combat Veterans pain. The greatest challenge is for us to deal with the wrath of the souls of all our victims who visit us as we dream to perfect their righteous revenge.
