When a Soldier Comes Home


With 10’s of 1000’s of our troops coming home by the end of the year, here’s a touching email to remind us to thank them all, not only for their service, but thank their families and loved ones, as well: (thx for the email, mare!)


When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard…

to listen to his son whine about being bored…

to keep a straight face, when people complain about potholes…

to be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work…

to be understanding, when a coworker complains about a bad night’s sleep…

to be silent when people pray to God for a new car…

to control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower…

to be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying…

to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they’re afraid to send their kids to summer camp…

to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather…

to control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold…

to remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog…

to be civil to people who complain about their jobs…

to just walk away when someone says they only get 2 weeks of vacation a year…

to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house…

The only thing harder than being a soldier…
