    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 you're cell phone is in your pocket.

    He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.
    __________________________

    You talk trash on your "buddies" that aren't with you.

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

    You don't feel like helping out your dad today, so you don't.

    He does what he is told.
    __________________________

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

    He walks the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists.
    __________________________

    You complain about how hot it is.

    He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.
    __________________________

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

    He does not get to eat today.
    __________________________

    Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.

    He wears the same things for months, but makes sure his weapons are clean.
    __________________________

    You go to the mall and get your hair redone.

    He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.
    __________________________

    You are angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.

    He is told he will be held an extra 2 months.

    He does as he is told.
    __________________________

    You call your girlfriend and set a date for that night.

    He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.
    __________________________

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

    He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.
    __________________________

    You ditch class to go to a movie.

    He goes where he is told.
    __________________________

    You roll your eyes as a baby cries.

    He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.
    __________________________

    You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.

    He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own government and remembers why he is fighting.
    __________________________

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

    He hears the gun fire and bombs.
    __________________________

    You see only what the media wants you to see.

    He sees the bodies lying around him.
    __________________________

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

    He does what he is told.
    __________________________

    You stay at home and watch tv.

    He takes whatever time he is given to call and write home, sleep, and eat.
    __________________________

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

    He crawls under a tank for shade and a 5 minute nap, only to be woken by gun fire.
    __________________________

    You sit there and judge him, saying the world is a worse place because of men like him.

    If only there were more men like him
