I
DON'T DO FORWARDS, BUT THESE BOYS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY
HEART!

Your
cell
phone
is
in
your
pocket.

You're
looking 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
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 do something
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.

If
you support your troops, send
this


to
13 people.

REMEMBER
our Troops, and do not


forget
them LATER
Lest we forget –
KEEP THE
CHAIN GOING
