Ghosts

Ghosts

One day they will beat the last war drum

And we will hear the rattle the hum and the clatter of the earth as it shatters

Everyone has a grave waiting out there for them

So why cause bloodshed, why not stem the flow

Stop the bleeding, the bloodshed show

Yes the rich line their pockets

And blood for oil ,powers our mains sockets

But when the rich wage war it’s the poor who die

No god can stand in…

Their honor

Their people



Some call them soldiers

Others call them heroes



Our veterans have risked their lives for us

They have lived through hell and fought with honor

Many have…

U.S. Military Code of Conduct

I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.

If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape…

Only The Most Capable Apply

“First, strap on around 100lbs of additional equipment, thereby making you slow, cumbersome, and constantly uncomfortable.  Next, remove a regular meal schedule, which makes you weak.   Finally, only sleep for a couple hours at a time, usually in your gear and when it’s too hot to move, as many Infantry units operate mainly at night.   All of this reaches a crescendo when it’s combined with the ever present reminder that any mistake you make can cost your peers life and…

My Respect Will Never Waiver

My views on war will never matter - I will always respect a soldier who serves for this country.

Above all, they deserve respect. It doesn’t matter what you stand for, what branch you are in, what rank, what you believe in, who you come home to at night and what you decide to do…

This is your blood on the Flag, your face I see when I look at our Flag, and your service and sacrifice I salute when I stand before the Flag. This is an…
