A "Brother" sent this to me - S.L.
You may have served in Combat or in non-combat. You may have retired out or you may have served for a short time. You may have been a draftee or a volunteer. You may have served in the Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or the Merchant Marines, BUT YOU SERVED. You did not run off to England or Canada, etc.
YOU DID YOUR JOB HONORABLY and for that I am PROUD to call you Brother/Sister.
You may have served during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan, But you served, you did not run. You have a DD 214 with those words "HONORABLY DISCHARGED" the two most noble words in the world.
Brother-Sister, life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forgive the ones who don't, just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands know this. If it changes your life, let it. Take a few minutes to think before you act when you're mad. Forgive quickly. God never said life would be easy, he just promised it would be worth it.
Again I am proud to know each and every one of you.
Happy Brothers' Day! To the cool men that have touched my life: Here's to you!! I was never a hero, but I am thankful I served among them. A real Brother walks with you when the rest of the world walks on you. Send to all your Band of Brothers, because the fake ones won't.
Today is Band of Brothers' Day; send this to all your brothers, fathers, sons and fellow veterans you know.
