I Fought For You

First and foremost, thank you Sarge Charlie for sharing this with your readers. I absolutely cried my eyes out. Tears aside, this moving video says so much in four short minutes, and in my opinion is really so very important.

My father served in Vietnam, and my grandfather on the pacific islands during World War II. Both were in the Army, and both have always made sure that their children knew the stories, and the hardships, and more importantly the why's behind why they personally served their country, and what they were fighting for.

I, with the help of my father, have taught and told my son the same things. No one likes war, but sometimes they have to be fought, and other times, the politics behind their beginning are a small piece of the puzzle and overshadow what can be won for the people living under tyrannical rule. Politicians, and their reasons aside, our men and women are fighting a fight for the right reasons, because it is their hearts and blood that are poured out for our freedom, and the freedom of others.

I watched it with Captain Dramatic tonight and I was in tears again, and he would have been too if he hadn't been trying so hard to be a tough boy. He admitted that he almost lost it when the the people watching the screen stood and soluted the soldiers in the back of the theater.
