A Sudden Realization

I guess I try and ignore it. I don't want to think That he's there. I don't want to know that he's seeing people die, and that he might as well. I wear his Squadron shirt more often now. I want him to come back, and I support him in his choice. I don't agree with the War, but I damn well appreciate men like him who are willing to make a sacrifice like that for this country.

There was news about him recently. I just read it, and it made me realize, he is there. HE's witnessing everything firsthand. I'm sharing it with all of you because this is my family. This is why I want the troops home. I know part of him doesn't like going, No soldier does. He serves his country though, and He will follow the orders handed to him.

That's why I'm sharing this.
