Amazing tribute to Veterans EXCELLENT

Read to they very end.



A REAL EYE OPENER!!!!



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 complain of a "headache", and call in sick.



He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.



__________________________



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 make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket. !



He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.



__________________________



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.



__________________________



You complain about how hot it is.



He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.



__________________________



You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.



He doesn't get to eat today.



__________________________



Your 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're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.



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 go to the store by your parents. You don't.



He does exactly what he is told.



__________________________



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 woken 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!

***********************************************


If you support your troops, re-send this to everyone you know,


If it gets to another veteran who hasn't received it yet, it will bring back memories.


Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ
and the American G. I.


One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
