A Soldier's Sacerfice

You decided to leave your families and friends behind. It was your choice to defend our country this time. With tears in your eyes and faith in your heart. You put that uniform on with the intentions of protecting us. I can't imagine the things you have seen and done. The hurt and sadness you have overcome. Looking over your shoulder every turn of the way. Just so we could have freedom and liberty today. Your boots sink into the ground of a foreign land. and the feeling of loneliness sets in. Now on your own, with no way, to go back home. Remember God is protecting you now. Let God carry you when you have no strength left to go on. Let God's love cover you through the storm. When you need to cry and talk. God will be there no matter where you're at. talk to him like he is there Look for him in times of uncertainty and despair. Don't try to be an iron man God knows you are scared. He knows all you have sacrificed So others could have a life. You may see it as a job. But others see the hero you have become.
Dedicated to our soldiers past, present and future. Thank you for all you do!
