American Combat Troop Sacrifices The Media DOESN’T Show

All gave some. Some gave all. Sometimes it isn’t enough to revere our service member’s who sacrifice their all, but see why we revere their sacrifices made on our behalf. Even as service members, we ourselves need reminders as to why we do what we do. We don’t fight for political causes, though we are subject at times to political causes. We don’t serve blindly, but we serve honorably as our call of duty. We sacrifice for country, for family, for our children, for others we do not know. But when it comes to being in the heat of combat, we serve for our brothers and sisters to our left and right and sacrifice everything to keep them alive.

We don’t always know how to explain our inherent desire to sacrifice for others including our brothers and sisters, we just do it on instinct. We believe in our country and our flag and would die defending the stars and stripes. Soldiers are humble and often don’t want to be called heroes, but it is with no small accolade that all those who serve and have seen the horrors of combat and man’s inhumanity to man deserve to rightly be known as heroes. There is none more honorable, humble, brave, and determined than the American Military service member.
