    Your cell phone is in your pocket.
    You're looking at all the pretty girls.
    He patrols the streets, searching
    for insurgents and terrorists.
    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 roll your eyes as a baby cries.
    He gets a letter with pictures of his
    new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.

    You hug and kiss your girlfriend,
    like you do everyday.
    He holds his letter close and smells
    his love's perfume.

    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 hear 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 do something by
    your parents. You don't.
    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.

    REMEMBER our Troops, and do not
    forget them LATER
