I Came Home (Kristie Lynn's Story Part Two)

I fought for my country because of 9'll and left my legs in that hell of a desert. I came back though so many of my brothers and sisters died. Fellow Soldiers doing what I did fighting so that others may be free.

 

 

9/14/2011

The tenth anniversary of 9'11 was a hard one for me, because of all that we lost that day, and all that I fought for.  All the brothers and sisters, American brothers and sisters I lost in those towers and in the Pentagon as well as that Pennyslvania field that day.  Hatred didnt care what color you were that day or your religion it took you out in such a horrific way.

I fought for my country because of 9'll and left my legs in that hell of a desert.  I came back though so many of my brothers and sisters died.  Fellow Soldiers doing what I did fighting so that others may be free.

That is why it always makes me so mad when I hear of the goverment trying to take away from veterans or people being disrespectful.  I find it completely disgraceful that someone would stand in front of a military funeral and protest, knowing full well they only reason they are allowed to do that is because men and women like the soldier they are burying died for that right.

When will people wake up to that reality?

Anyway I know I have gotten off topic and I am growing tired, had a long day today, PT about kicked me in the tail.
