|A soldier, that is what most people call them individually. The dictionary defines them as “A person in military service: an enlisted man or woman.” The word “Soldier” is used on a daily basis in the military, as is it found in the everyday language of any American citizen. But, few people are able to realize what the title of “Soldier” is able to sum up in one simple word.|
A Soldier is an individual and a team in one being. They are the ones who step forward, when everyone else steps back. They are the people who risk their lives to save someone, who they have never even seen. Without them, there would be no America.
When General Washington went to battle, who went with him? Soldiers. When the Civil War was at its peak, who went to battle? Soldiers.
Even today, they are the people who are supporting America through every obstacle it encounters. A Colonel once said this about a soldier, “Such a scene of sorrow and weeping I had never before witnessed . . . We were then about to part from the man who had conducted us through a long and bloody war, and under whose conduct the glory and independence of our country had been achieved.”
They slept on the ground through rain and snow. In combat, boys of 18 stood at attention as the sound of death beat against there ears. It is because of there undying courage and strength, that our country is known as ... “The land of the free, and the HOME OF THE BRAVE.”
Who are they? They are American soldiers.
