Favorite Quote:
"If at first you don't succeed, call in an air strike." -Someone quoted on Call of Duty 4_Modern Warfare-

My pack is heavy
And my gun is cold.
I've seen my enemies fall hard,
And my friends fall harder.
I've stormed the beaches of Normandy,
And patrolled the streets of Bagdad.
My sight is clear,
But my conscience is not.
I've been shot by Cupid's arrow,
And by a German's pistol.
America is my country,
And overseas is where I fight.
My pack is heavy,
And my gun is cold.

The author's comments:
This poem is deticated to U.S. soldiers and their families. This is especially for the 30,000 troops being deployed to Afganistan this year. God bless you, and thank you.
