I just got on my facebook page a few minutes ago, and an airsoft buddy of mine on there invited me to join a group called "Don't Support the Troops? Think about this."

This was the first thing I saw upon checking the group out:

It may take you two minutes to read this. If you do not take the time to read this, you are probably one of the people this post is talking about.


You stay up for 16 hours

They stay up for days on end. _________________________

You take a warm shower to help you wake up.

They go days or weeks without running water. __________________________

You complain of a "headache", and call in sick.

They get shot at as others are hit, and keep moving forward. __________________________

You put on your "Code Pink" t-shirt and go meet up with your friends.

They still fight for your right to wear that shirt. __________________________

You talk trash about your "friends" who are not with you.

They know they may not see some of their buddies again. __________________________

You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls/guys.

They patrol the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists. _________________________

You complain about how hot it is.

They wear their heavy gear, not daring to take off their helmet to wipe their brow. __________________________

You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.

They may not get to eat today. __________________________

Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.

They wear the same things for weeks, but makes sure their weapons are clean. __________________________

You go to the mall and get your hair redone.

They don't have time to brush their teeth today. __________________________

You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.

They're told they will be held over an extra 2 months. __________________________

You call your boyfriend/girlfriend and set a date for tonight.

They wait for the mail to see if there is a letter from home. __________________________

You hug and kiss your girlfriend/boyfriend, like you do everyday.

They hold their letters close and smell their loves' perfume/cologne. __________________________

You roll your eyes as a baby cries.

They get a letter with pictures of their new child, and wonder if they'll ever meet __________________________

You criticize the military, and say that war never solves anything.

They see the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why they are fighting. __________________________

You hear the jokes about war, and make fun of men/women like him/her.

They hear the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded. __________________________

You see only what the media wants you to see.

They see the broken bodies lying around them. __________________________

You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.

They do exactly what they are told. __________________________

You stay at home and watch TV.

They take whatever time they are given to call, write home, sleep, and eat. __________________________

You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.

They try to sleep but get woken up by mortars and helicopters all night long. __________________________

You sit there and judge them, saying the world is probably a worse place because of people like them

If only there were more people like them ___________________________

TOPICS: Military/Veterans
KEYWORDS: facebook; military; supportthetroops
That alone has convinced me that this group is worth joining. I strongly encourage others to do the same.
