Men in Uniform
Men, and now even women, in Uniform are a noble and brave breed who put their Nation’s Honour before self. A soldier who stays awake when you are asleep. who fights so that you can sleep without fear, who puts his life in danger despite knowing that there is a life waiting for him, has to be the most honourable being that lived.
A person in uniform was born just like the rest of us, then what makes him so different and what gives him the will and the guts to fight, without fear of death? To want to join the Defence forces, one needs to be patriotic. Some join it for the thrill but eventually those that do not fall in love with their Uniform and the Service cannot go through with the rigours of training. We all love our country but do we love it enough to put our dreams aside and serve it and protect it?
The Civilian population remembers soldiers when a crisis befalls them, they give grateful sermons when everything is under control and then just as easily as it began, they forget. I believe that everyone must necessarily serve in any of the Armed Services for at least five years and then no one will ever doubt what the worth of men in uniform is.
