Some superheroes wear capes; mine wears combat boots

"This is for those of us who would rather wear dog tags than diamonds. For those of us who still sleep with stuffed animals, just because he got them for us. This goes out to those of us who never let go of her cell phone. This goes out to those of us whose heart swells with pride every time the national anthem is played. This goes out to the proud women who stand tall behind a United States Marine. We sit and we wait, for a letter, for a phone call, and for the lucky ones; a homecoming. Many people don't understand this life; they say it's unfair, they say they couldn't do it. Well, here is our response... Do not tell us you're sorry, or that you know how we feel. Don't try to make us laugh when we're sad, we don't want to laugh, we'd rather sit and think about our man. We may not be "happy" with all of this, but we don't mind waiting."

[Save a humvee, ride a Marine]

These made me smile ;)
