You spend your day in a cool, air-conditioned office? They spend theirs out in the relentless desert sun.

You wear a finely cut suit? They wear dirty combats, mountains of kit and a rifle.

You drive your Mercedes to work to feel “impressive”? They take an armoured personnel carrier, designed to at least reduce the effects of explosive attack.

You argue with your partner each night, then fall asleep right beside them? They would give anything just to see them, living thousands of miles away and speaking only through letters.

You complain about a headache and feel life is unfair when you’re ill for a day or two? They carry on even after being blown up and shot at, losing limbs and never living the same life again.

You protest about the war and call soldiers “murderers”? They do their job anyway, because they know it’s only what they do which gives you this freedom to do so.

Soldiers are heroes, and it’s about time all citizens were aware of that ♥
