No matter where you are stationed being a soldier is no easy job. For one you have to leave your family and loved ones behind for an unknown destination that may or may not be safe. If you are stationed somewhere like Afghanistan there is the horribly high heat to deal with, and not a Dairy Queen in sight for a quick, refreshing snack; although uncomfortable temperatures are the least of these heroic individuals’ worries.
Someone has to do the hard work that comes with being a solider. After all we wouldn’t have our freedoms without the brave men and women that risk their lives everyday in the name of being a soldier. It’s been said many times that the best medicine is humor, and these soldiers prove just how true that is!
