Shame On You Guys

So there we were, all nestled together in the classroom. We were sitting Indian style enjoying our cookies. Daddy Sarratt was reading "The Night Before Christmas" to us, and we were all just aglow. I don't think we've ever been that quiet in one room together, it was such a great story.

Then someone had to ruin the fun by writing some knock-off version of the story to include beer and late night partying. Then they had the audacity to put my name in the midst of all that foolishness and nonsense. I would just like to say for the record and to all those that know me that i would never do such a thing. I am the most well rounded individual in this unit and if that was a sarcastic stab at me for being so grounded then shame on you and your insecurities SGT RISNER.

Standing on the fore front of adversity
We hold true to all that we have learned
Rising to the call of our country
Willing to die for the rights we've earned

As the people of the world come together
People of every race, religion and color
To stand against these tyrants of terror
Every man standing, now our brother

We fight for honor, life and freedom
Our family, friends and loved ones
We fight for a peace that may never come
We shoulder this burden for our sons

Despite how the world views our life
We chose this, it was our decision
No matter the pain, ridicule and strife
We are Soldiers, this is our mission
