Don't envy a soldier and his medals
All those ribbons on his chest
He did not try to get them
They're not there at his request
They were earned in stinking hell holes
Where no man would like to go
Or in cold and wintry places
Where there's only ice and snow
He did not know he earned them
Till they were awarded at parade
And they were bright when he first got them
But in time the colours fade
He was told he had to wear them
And to wear them all with pride
But when the memories come to haunt him
Those same medals make him hide
Cause those medals will not bring back
All those guys he left behind
And he would trade them all forever
A dream to honour those....
who have so bravely served our country
As an army wife and a media person, I have seen the tough life of the defence personnel and their perspective from the civil front. Most of the civilian citizens respect our soldiers and wish to convey our gratitude towards them some time or other. Indian Soldiers aims to bridge this gap and to provide a link to connect supportive citizens of India with the soldiers and offer a channel by which to communicate their encouragement and express gratitude to brave soldiers serving our nation.
This in turn will help us facilitate encouragement to a large number of deserving soldiers.
Do we Indians really have the time to think about our soldiers......!
Is there an answer....??
