American Soldier

I have always liked the music by Toby Keith and this is one of my favorite songs he sings. He paints a pretty accurate picture of the American Soldier. I know that when I was serving, many of the things he touches on in this video are pretty accurate. Did I think about not coming home? I know I didn’t dwell on it but the thought would creep in every once and a while. I was always proud to wear the uniform and did realize that it meant I may not come home one day.

Luckily my career was a long one and one that I am proud of but I did have my share of soldiers whom I gave their last trip back to the United States to. I can honestly say that I was very proud to be able to give them that ride. Unless you have ever done that, you will never know what the feeling is and I will never be able to explain it to you accurately. It is sad when you think of the families that have lost a brother, a son, a husband or a father but it is also an honor knowing you are getting them home for the last time.
