Sgt Hook posted this – it was sent to him by one of his readers. I think it’s worth repeating. And worth re-reading. The good Sgt called it “Parallel Lives.”


Your alarm goes off, you hit the snooze and sleep for another 10 minutes.

He stays up for days on end.

You take a warm shower to help you wake up.

He goes days or weeks without running water.

You complain of a “headache”, and call in sick.

He gets shot at, as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.

You put on your anti-war/don’t support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.

He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.

You make sure your cell phone is in your pocket.

He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dogtags.

You talk trash on your “buddies” that aren’t with you.

He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.

Go read the whole thing. And share it.
