The Soldier Stood Before God

The Soldier stood and faced God Which must always come to pass He hoped his shoes were shinning Just as brightly as his brass Step forward now Soldier How shall I deal with You? Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true? The Soldier squared his shoulders said, no Lord, I guess I ain't, Because those of us who carry guns, can't always be saints I've had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was tough and sometimes I've been violent because the world is awfully rough But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got just too steep And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear and sometimes, God forgive me I wept unmanly tears I know I don't deserve a place Among the people here They never wanted me around except to calm their fears If You have a place for me here, Lord It needn't be so grand I never expected or had to much but if You don't, I'll understand There was silence all around the throne Where the saints had often trod As the Soldier waited quietly for the judgment of his God Step forward now, You've borne your burdens well Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets You've done your time in Hell.

Tankers Brothers

Here is an email I received from another blogspot that I stumbled upon the other day.  I recommend it to you for your reading enjoyment.  http://mikegulf.blogspot.com

Chuck: Thanks for leaving us your comment in the TankerBrothers blog. You honor us by taking the time to check it out.We're both really proud of y'all. When we write, we write from experience. I was in Baghdad for 14 months; my little brother actually crested 15. We know that y'all have experiences and stories to tell, and you should. Get the word out, man. There’s no way we're going to convince the Anti-War loonies into suddenly changing their minds, but all of us vets together can sure make a difference writing about our experiences (while maintaining OPSEC) to the people that are sitting on the fence.Imagine how confused some people are who have never served or had any experience with the military. That's why we need to tell them the truth.Take care, and God Bless.-Caesar
