Even Kids Support the Troops!

Topic: Even Kids Support the Troops!

A FRIEND OF MINE and his partner had just survived a night of the Army's tough Ranger school atop a freezing Georgia mountain. Fatigued from little sleep and even less food, they waited on the outskirts of a small mountain town for a signal to continue their maneuvers in the area.

A young boy, who was bored with waiting at a nearby school-bus stop, ventured to the edge of the woods. Apparently he was accustomed to the Rangers because he showed little surprise when he suddenly came face to face with the two camouflaged soldiers. The boy simply reached inside his jacket and pulled out his lunch sack.

"You'll need this worse than me," he said matter-of-factly. Then he trudged back to his bus stop leaving behind two grateful warriors.
