And to think the majority of these soldiers are as young as they are. Some born in 1986 and seem to know that freedom comes at great sacrifice for other 18 and 19 yr. olds to be able to play their games. Oh, I am sorry. I should include all age groups. I believe we have some veterans around here to that have served their countrys with distinction and honor. ~S~

Great read. Thanks!

Thats your opinion, you can say so freely thanks to the sacrafices of those before you. Just dont say it outloud in the presence of the soldier that wrote it, you'd be picking yourself up off the ground realizing what an *** you are.

Not just that soldier pretty much any soldier would do such a favor.

This poem, titled "Merry Christmas, My Friend" was actually written by Marine Corporal James M. Schmidt in 1987. Not a Marine stationed in Okinawa Japan. It was published in Leatherneck Magazine. If you want to read the unaltered version go HERE (http://www.onpointradio.org/features/2004/poem.asp).

Thank you sir, the 'full' version is even better. I forwarded it to several places, thought it was important to do so.

yeah, I remember this one from my days in the corps. I figure it was probably re-sent by a Marine in Oki.
