A soldier may represent their nation with pride.
To protect, and defend the country that they reside.
This fight may occur outside their borders
They are simply following the issued orders
When danger is present on the battle field
It is the soldier next to them that they will shield
Giving up their life for the soldiers who naturally would do the same
Something difficult for those at home to sustain
Trading their life for those in the combat zone
Instead of a concern for those back home
Do not let this cause you to easily confuse
Without a consideration to this in other views
If a different situation resulted in their survival
Others demise may have contributed to their arrival
Just remember to use this thought
Before judging actions by those who fought.
