What is that supposed to mean? If you weren't giving honor to the military, why get on this thread?

You should be deported. Probably some piece of il legal trash that shouldn't be here anyway. We'll have to work on that.

WISHING I TOLD YOU

I thought that you would be happy, that I was still a virgin
I couldn’t wait to surprise you before you went off to Iraq
But all you did was yell at me, wanted to know why I did it.
What was I trying to do to you – to force you to come back?

Finally the night had arrived, I was ready to do it
how I’d kept it all a secret I guess I’ll never know
I thought that you’d be honored, that I gave myself to you
I really loved you a lot, and thought your love would grow

But I was so surprised when they called you for deployment
Not ever a week later you flew to Fort Bragg without complaining
Now I’m standing here at the window, about 3 months pregnant
Wishing I had told you, while you were still in training

You passed with flying colors and they put you on a plane
they promoted you to Staff Sergeant 'cause of your rapport
You never bothered to write me, so you never even knew
that I had had your baby, while you fought a civil war

I sent you a letter with picture of the son that looked like you
But they say you never got the letter, because you’d died that day
You tried to stop an insurgent – from killing a pregnant lady
Papers say you were a hero,'cause you got her out of the way

I am gonna raise him on my own, and tell him you were a hero
I’m gonna bring him to your grave, tell him you were coming back
Cause even though I knew you were angry, I always thought you loved me
And I expected to be reunited when you came home from Iraq

So what do I do now that my bf, my man, and my hero is dead
I can’t keep this to myself; God your Mom would be so mad
If I didn’t let her know she was a grandmother
To the son you never even knew you had

Grandma and I both love Jason Jr.,
And I have moved into the house that you grew up in
Grandma watches him when I’m in school
And we both tell him how much you loved him

We often drive down to visit the grave
we bring picnic and put down pretty flowers
Jason tells you how much he loves you
as we sit under the apple tree and picnic by the hour

Jason Jr's growing up real fast
I wish that you could watch and see
'cause boy he looks just like you
but honey he acts just like me

Author’s Note: I met a woman on-line who, pregnant with her soldier boy friend’s baby, didn’t tell him before he died in Iraq – this is her story.

All my life someone in my family has honorably served in the military.
I know that most REAL Americans know that if it weren't for the military we would all be speaking a different language and never know the freedoms that we enjoy in this country.
I lived 2 years in Pakistan. Every week someone would come and ask if we would sponsor them so they could come to 'our' country. They wanted our freedoms.
Yes, I honor those who have died for their family, homes, friends and country.

Indians were American, before there was an America? Swedish schooling seems to be lacking as well.

I am asking a favor of the grey box posters here. Ignore the troll, he is craving attention and will say anything to get someone to pay attention to him. Ignore him, starve him, do not acknowledge his existence. I know he will respond to this post, but as usual,I will ignore him.

EYES ON THE WIRE

They come at night, when I’m in bed,
Sand bags turned into pillows

Donny C. and Ritchie P. along with many others
Eyes on the wire, don’t fall asleep,
Advise my fallen brothers.

But there is one who comes at night
Who is not like the others.

Incoming! Incoming! An air burst so near
These words trickle thru my head as if to calm my fear,
“The Rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air…”
I wait for hot metal to enter my back
Is that Jimi Hendrix that I hear?

Illumination creates Dante’s night,
He appears in the smoke and shadow.
It was that instant that God decided
He’d condemn us to do battle.

Tracers do their death dance
Cordite and piss, the perfume of death.
I saw in his eyes, the ultimate surprise
He’d savored his last breath

Eyes on the wire, can’t fall asleep,
If I do I know he’ll come.

With his eye’s burning red, and his body in shreds
He follows me with his stare
“No sweat GI, take the easy way out,
Pull that trigger if you dare!”

Eyes on the wire, don’t fall asleep
I guess the saying was right;

Remember when we said,“We control the day,
But Mr. Charles controls the night.”
