Never Forget

I want to say that America is a rigged empire, but then I realized it would mean that American Soldiers are fighting for nothing.

They’re not. They’re Fighting For All Of The USA. They Fight For The American.

They’re fighting for one another. They fight for their neighbors and friends. They fight for postal workers, college students, the elderly and the disabled. They fight so that every American has the right to struggle until they themselves learn of a new way of life. They fight for themselves, so that they can continue to love and protect their wives, their husbands, their children and their children’s children. They fight to ensure that capitalism has an opportunity to thrive, and also so that people can bond together and create Unions that can change the entire world.

God Bless America

They fight for the rich, the poor, the unborn, and every American who has died. The fight for the future too, is what I mean.And it isn’t just soldiers fighting.The US Military is now the most advanced military ever assembled. While not outnumbering some of it’s foes, it has advanced by way of tactics and advanced technologies. From the inside, America’s military may not be discussed on a regular basis, but much advancement is taking place within their ranks, and this also in the civilian side of our defense department.Perhaps I am tooting their horn, but as a soldier I felt that America’s military was more advanced then I could wrap my finger around. No, I do not think I was a dumb soldier, for I advanced in my position and in rank in typical promotion time. This really isn’t about my service record though, it’s more so about all of ours.

Never forget that men and women are serving here in the U.S., overseas, and soon to be, Space. Don’t forget the strides they have made, and the lengths they are willing to go through to ensure that America stays safe. Yes. America, we will question many of our military’s overall objectives, and there will be moments where our collective efforts must bear more power than our military’s might (for we are a Republic, where our votes matter) but we must always remember that without them peace would be a far away dream.

Honestly, I have nothing but a lot more to say, but I’ll end it here. Just remember that we have loved ones fighting for us, strangers fighting for us, immigrants who became Americans fighting for us. Americans.
