About a month ago, I found ArmyMomTimesThree and she had a link to “Warriors…in their own words.” I sat quietly watching the trailer listening to the sounds of fire fight and absorbing the words of warriors past and present. Their words gave me goosebumps and I couldn’t stop the tears from welling up. After I watched it, I immediately ordered the full length DVD. I told Will I had ordered it and he kind of had mixed emotions about it.
Last night we watched it. I hung onto their words and watched as their emotions sometimes got the best of them. It was humbling, to say the least. Listening to these gentlemen speak and hearing their words touched my soul. They said they don’t want history to remember them. They also said they would do it again.
Will fell asleep before it was over and I don’t know that he will sit down to finish watching it. I don’t know if he will share his thoughts on the parts he did see. I simply don’t know and I’m not going to push it. What I do know is that there are Soldiers in his unit that share some of the same thoughts as the warriors in the movie. I’m proud to know my husband will gear up and do his job to the best of his abilities; the same as his fellow Soldiers will. It doesn’t take away the fear, but it does bring me a sense of peace. I have peace in my heart knowing that these Soldiers, brothers in arms, will take care of and honor each other, which, in turn, honors their families at home.
I’m certainly not suggesting you buy the DVD, but I would suggest you at least watch the trailer on the website.
