American soil


An Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny ‘plot’ of grass in front of his tent.  It’s heartwarming!  Here is a soldier in Iraq, stationed in a big sand box.

He asked his wife to send him dirt (U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet.  When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil — to bring them good luck.

Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home………..he asked for American soil.  WOW.



If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of scissors.  Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don’t stop and think about the little things that we take for granted.

Upon receiving this, say a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.

You don’t have to send this on, but gosh, who wouldn’t?
