The Average U.S. Military Man 

 

 

 

 

is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather re-wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either.
 
He's a recent High School graduate;
pursued some form of sport activities, 
drives a ten year old jalopy,
 
And has a steady girlfriend
that either broke up with him when he left,
or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away.
 
He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing
and a 155mm howitzer.
 
He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home
because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk.
 
He has trouble spelling,
thus letter writing is a pain for him,
but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds
and reassemble it in less time in the dark.
 
He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher,
and use either one effectively if he must.
 
He digs foxholes and latrines

    and can apply first aid like a professional. 
   
He can march until he is told to stop

    or stop until he is told to march.
 
He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation,
    but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. 
 
He is self-sufficient.

    he has two sets of fatigues:

    he washes one and wears the other.
    he keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.
 
He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts.
 
If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food.
 
He'll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low!
 
He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands.


He can save your life - or take it,

    because that is his job.
 
He will often do twice the work of a civilian ,

    draw half the pay

    and still find ironic humor in it all. 
   
He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.  
  
He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies,

    and helped to create them. 
   
He has wept in public and in private,

    for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.
    
He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body 

   while at rigid attention,

   while tempering the burning desire to
'square-away' those around him
   who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking
 
In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.

    Just as did his Father, Grandfather,

    and Great-grandfather,

    he is paying the price for our freedom.
 
Beardless or not, he is not a boy! 
     He is the American Fighting Man
    that has kept this country free for over 200 years.
 
He has asked nothing in return,

    except our friendship and understanding.
 
Remember him, always,

    for he has earned our respect

    and admiration with his blood.
 
And now we even have women over there in danger,
doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.
 
As you go to bed tonight,

    remember this shot..

    A short lull, a little shade

    and a picture of loved ones in their helmets
 

 

Prayer wheel for our military... please don't break it. 
Please email this to others, after a short prayer.

Prayer Wheel

"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."

  
    When you read this,
please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, sailors on ships, and airmen in the air.  
There is nothing attached....

    This can be very powerful.......
Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine or Airman, prayer is the very best one.
