This Motto Monday post was starting with one of the warriors who was wounded in the same area I was about the same time Then it took a different turn. This Motto Monday I ask everyone to simply stop while reading this post and remember those that have given all for this country and those that are battling obstacles back home as amputees.


It’s easy for all of us to go through our day and do the usual deal but for all that is holy, how dare our Government and the American people forget those that went into harm’s way, got chewed up, return home only to be “forgotten”. I know, they are always remembered. Are they? Did you think about any of the hundreds of military amputees this weekend?

"I learned very early in my life that only two things protect our nation: the grace of Almighty God and the United States military". Charlie Daniels


Don’t get me wrong, I’m not beating you up, just bringing awareness to these heroes who face challenges (real labor) every day you and I can't imagine. Not only do the warriors face challenges but what about their families? How about those wives that left their wounded warrior as they returned because “they couldn’t deal with the state of what use to be their husband?”

Take a few minutes out and when you feel unmotivated and feeling down on Tuesday when you go back to work, ask yourself a question in the mirror, am I truly beat or am I just feeling sorry for myself?

These warriors aren’t feeling sorry for themselves, neither should you. Time for a C-Gar

I know there are hundreds more I could post below but I ask you remember warriors like these:

LtCol Edwards

The Kleins

Marine Gunnery Sgt. Brian Meyer
