I may not support the wars
I may not agree they should be their
Our men and women should not be their
Fighting a war that wasn't ours to fight
Things get tougher
More people will die
More tears will be shed
For a war that's still going strong
How many tears must be shed?
How many more have to die?
Bombs are flying
People are crying
Homes are broken
But yet 
What do we have to prove?
I support our women and men
That fight for freedom every day
I support them no matter what
They are doing what they are ordered to do
Just following orders
Given by a man
Anyone remember 
What caused this war to start?
Anyone remember the true reason 
To why they are their to start?
A lie
A stretched truth
A few broken rules
By someone who should have paid 
For the laws that he had broken
For the lies he had told
To put our women and men
In harms way
To fight a war that's not ours to fight
Keep strong women and men of our armed forces
If I lied to the government what would have happened?
Punishments and jail time
Depending on the crime
Why do we televise 
What our soldiers are going to do?
Why do we tell the enemy 
Of the newest battle plans?
Why do we put our people
In harms way by telling the enemy what land we are going to take.
The enemy will sit and wait
For our brave men and women

Author's Notes:
A little something for our men and women in the armed forces.
Some people may not agree with this write and that's just fine.
I think most people will know exactly who and what I'm talking about.
Had a special member in mind when writing it.

I will sure be glad when god's promise comes true for the earth to have peace and a time when no person will say I am sick 

 until then pray that all will come to an acurate knowledge of the true living god

Thank you Scott! And you're right. If they want the enemy to stop killing us over here and in Afghanistan then they might want to stop showing all these videos of where we are at. But what the media doesnt tell you is, that every one of those cowards shooting at us and blowing us up have televisions and are watching our every move...because of the media. Its a shame really. Great write!

thanks scott - this is a wonderful tribute to the men and women who serve without question.  it's up to the rest of us to be their advocates so the precious gifts they have to offer are not squandered.  great statement that needs to be shared...
