What does it look like?
Are there stacks of tan t-shirts?
A load of ABU's in the wash?
Pants, Tops, Socks laying around?
Do you find small stickers in your laundry that remind you that deployment is real?
Do you have enough blue folders to wall paper the Sistine Chapel?
Are dress blues ready for a ceremony?
Are there boots to trip over?
Do you stub your toe on the steel toe?
Are there flags?
On the nightstand are there dog tags waiting for an impending deployment?
Whatever it is - take time to realize what it all meas.
They are symbols...
of 1% of the population that protects 100% of the rest and fights 100% of the conflicts.
