    Default This Ones For You Hurrican9! From A Friend!

    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 patrols 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.

    You make your bed and wash 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 cut.
    He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.

    You're angry because you had to work overtime.
    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 wife and kids, like you do everyday.
    He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.

    You roll your eyes as your 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 listen to 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 and you complain.
    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.

    Hmmm, I might get an admin discharge from the Army if I go to a Marine website.

    It's a nice looking site. I will cruise the forums when I get a little more time.

    I like your sig, it's so right.
