Military Friends

We all know that military friends never really say good-bye, just 'see ya' down the road'.  It's true, eventually we all meet up again.  And that's a great thing!

A friend of mine just sent me an email that shows the differences between military friends and regular, run-of-the-mill friends.   It was too good to keep to myself!

Friends: Never ask for foodMilitary Friends: Are thereason you have no food.Friends: Borrow your stuff for a few days andthen give it back.Military Friends: Borrow your stuff, keep it, and it goesPCS withthem.Friends: Know a few things about you.MilitaryFriends: Know all about you or have met someone else atanother duty stationwho does.Friends: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd isdoing.

Military Friends: Cry like babies becausethey HAVE to leave you.Friends: Call your parents Mr. andMrs.Military Friends: Call your parents Mom and Dad.Friends: Bailyou out of jail and tell you what you did was wrong.Military Friends: Wouldbe sitting in jail next to you saying, "Man,they made a BIG mistake tryingto jump us."Friends: Have never seen you cry.Military Friends:Cry with you.Friends: Will knock on your front doorMilitaryFriends: Walk right in and say, "I'm home."Friends: Are your friendsfor a whileMilitary Friends: Are your friends for life as you move aboutthiscountry or the world.

God Bless my military friends!  You are my strength, my backbone, my funny bone and the reason I can so often smile no matter what life, or the military, throw at me!
