    Some say courage can be easily confused with stupidity, but stupidity knows no courage.

    Courage is the understanding that there may be death, there may be blood, there may be terror and hunger, but still a soldier walks on with nothing but pride for their country and a tool of life and death hanging by their side, and still they keep fighting.

    Courage is the ability to walk miles a day to reach the wounded, to carry them back to the hospitals, knowing they could die in your arms. Knowing you are twice as likely to be seen and twice as likely to be shot down, and still they keep fighting.

    Courage is hearing the thousands of screams around you, watching the bombs scatter killing anything in their path, being surrounded by the wings of death for days upon end, and still they keep fighting.

    Courage is experiencing this entire trauma knowing soon, it could be your turn to die.

    In the army courage is the ability to stay put, fight for the ones you love and through all this, still keep fighting. Then when the war has ended, smile at strangers, shake an enemies hand after they've taken someone's life and if the war whispers your name once more, still keep on fighting.

    Some say courage can easily be confused with stupidity, but stupidity, knows no courage!
