I thought that those who have served would appreciate this.
My Boots

My Boots are off,I war no more
All my gear lay on the floor
I stop and think, of days gone by
of brothers and friends, whom had to die
to fight for honor, and sacrifice
so many so dear who paid the price
Too few are those, who realize not
what price was paid for what theve got
So I ask you now, for something so small
not money, not fame, but as equally tall
Give thanks to those you come accross
and Swell with pride for those we've lost.
Consider one more second where you stand,
Within the greatest Nation in all the land

A moving poem alright. Too many people seem content with ignoring the fact that standing on the walls is a job that somebody HAS to do, but nobody WANTS to do. I think back on my 8 years in the military all the time and wonder what alot of those guys are doing now. Thanks for posting bro.
