‘If only there were more like American soldiers’

Dear editor,

The greatest thing about an American combat soldier is that they will do whatever you ask them to do.

They will go without food, without family, without a bed to sleep on other than the hard ground.

They will shave out of a canteen cup and take a bath in a mud puddle.

They will wear filthy clothes, get body sores, go without a break while they wait for the next bullet or the next explosion.

They will wait to die or get wounded, hoping that if they do get it their buddies won’t get it too.

If only the world was made up of more people like them.
