  • I only disagree with the last statement. As the mother of a 3 time Middle-east deployed son (many more other deployments), I can honestly state that there could be NOTHING harder than being a soldier. Loving one comes in at a close second, though.

  • 1. WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME This email is being circulated around the world - please keep it going!!! I was “asked” to pass this on and I will gladly do so, will you pass this link on?
  • 2. When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard.... .... 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 listen to his son whine about being bored.
  • 3. ...to be understanding when a co-worker 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.
  • 4. ....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 keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.     ....to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.  
  • 5. ....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..   Is loving one.   .....to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.     ....to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.
