Sacrifice - a little concept I pray America understands

(A warriors trys to keep composure before he leaves onn deployment) Sacrifices. It’s one thing to give up your Saturday to work overtime. It’s another to give up all of your Saturdays for a year to work overtime, and get shot at.  Its one thing many of your warriors have become very humble about, sacrifice. The sacrifice made not only on the surface but I can tell you I have seen some of the meanest Marines during the departure of a deployment look away from a family member, get on the plane to Afghanistan and have a tear in their eye.


What’s it like to leave your family and deploy? Have your best friend rare back kick you in the man junk, and you just start to feel the gut wrenching feeling that hits you when you walk away from your loved ones to go kill bad guys. The feeling of walking away from young children upset that daddy is leaving, they don’t know why mommy is crying but they know it’s not good. Your warriors Man the hell up and make the conscious decision that yes, their family is being left, however, the greater good for OTHERS is bigger than many realize, so they go.

Along with that warrior, there is almost always a family that sacrifices right along with their warrior. Without a doubt the car will break, lawnmowers will not start, everything that can go wrong will for those staying back as their warrior goes forward. We could look at a calendar and count the holidays, birthdays etc. that are missed. Ya might want to grab a few years of Calenders if we are going to do that because, your warriors sacrifice a lot. Many firsts. First steps of babies, first dates of daughters. First deaths of loved ones back in the States.

The stress of some shitbag trying to kill you is a real stress on deployments. Another stress is your family back at home without you. Stress and sacrifice. Two big concepts I pray Americans understand just exactly what your warriors are “sacrificing” for their country.

I have a son presently serving in Afghanistan. He is single. It is a tremendous sacrifice for those that have wives and children back home. We pray for them all.

Wouldn'nt it be nice if every deployed family had someone in their area to adopt them for the duration!!

My son called me yesterday and said, " this will be the first Christmas home in 4 years". We are all so relived and excited. When your child, your baby, (although a grown man) is under constant threat of death in firefights....I can't even put it into words. Love this country and our warriors.

Paint is your car's defense against rust and it helps the car look great, so park your car in the shade to keep the paint looking great. The Sun's ultraviolet rays break the paint down and cause immediate chippings to break away. A few days in the sun can ruin a good paint job.
