It may take you two minutes to read this, but if you do not take the time to read this you are one of the people this post is talking about.

You stay up for 16 hours

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 ride down the interstate, on your shiny Goldwing.

He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists.
_________________________

You complain about how hot it is, with your helmet on.

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

You go out to lunch at DQ, and complain because they got your order wrong.

He doesn't get to eat today.
__________________________

Your wife 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 or more people may die.
__________________________

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.
__________________________

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, repost this with an "OOHRAH!"

If you don't support your troops well, then don't repost, it's not like you know the men and women that are dying to preserve your rights.

OOHRAH! OOHRAH! OOHRAH!

And at the risk of this becoming a political post............... a huge, long, and continuous BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! to the spineless, gutless, low-life politicians playing politics for their own best interest by using our brave and valient soldiers as political pawns while in harms way on foreign soil. And some of those same spineless, gutless, low-life politicians are repeating the same old crap they did during the Viet Nam Era.........such as Teddy "HICCUP" Kennedy, John F. "I SERVED IN VIET NAM" Kerry, and the Illustrious Senile Senator "KKK" Byrd from W.VA. :shock: Why can't the soldiers be released from these ridiculous "rules of engagement" and let them do what they are trained to do and "GIT R DONE" and GIT BACK HOME? DAMMIT ANYWAY!!!!!!!!! as I ease on along putting my fire-retardent flame suit on. Fire away LIBS. :lol: :lol: :lol:

OOHRAH to the Nth. I am a believer that all must serve their country for a designated period of time. No deferments. When you serve is up to you but you, (read ALL here) must serve. To those of you who have family in Iraq I wish them a safe return and please thank them for me for their effort.

Am I just completely uninformed? I see some of these statements as true from the Viet Nam era but I don't see or read of the following for this war. What I read and see are people against the war but supportive of our troops. Of course I have not yet heard what Jane Fonda will say today. For the record I am a veteran and unfortunately do see the need for wars to maintain freedom.
Who is making fun of our troops?
Who is saying the world is a worse place because of men like them?
What does a "not support the troops" shirt look like? I have never seen one.
I am serious, I have not seen or heard of these activities for this war.

You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.

You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.
