War is an organized, armed, and, often, a prolonged conflict that is carried on between states, nations, or other parties typified by extreme aggression, social disruption, and usually high mortality. War is a constant danger zone and regardless of whether you agree with the concept of war or your political stance on the military in general – you have to pay respect to young men who join the armed forces to fight for their country.
I’m sure many of you reading, have friends or family that are part of a military branch. The overall goal of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and etc, is to protect this country. It takes bravery, dedication, courage, and sacrifice to protect your fellow citizens. The intense profession of soldiering as part of a military is older than recorded history itself.
We can all debate for and against wars. Having your own opinion is fine. However when shit hits the fan, it’s comforting to know that you have courageous men/women fighting to keep you safe. Thousands of troops worldwide lose their lives in conflicts across the globe, these photos demonstrate true reality of being a soldier. Enjoy!
