"LIFE OF A SOLDIER
I left home @18, I learnt how to kill another human being before i learnt how to pay my taxes. I learnt how to care about someone else's life more than my own life. I have friends in death zone, yeah!! Some of my friends in death zone haven't come back. I don't get enough sleep most nights. I fight for people that like me and people that hate me. I don't get paid much.
I don't know when I will see my family, I don't know when next I might go home, I don't know much really...!!! But I know one thing for sure, I have over 100,000.00 brothers and sisters out there, and they make it all worth it...!!! Just missing all my course mates out there...!!! Both the fallen heroes and the ones that are still alive and in service...!!! I LOVE YOU ALL. NIGERIA MILITARY GET MORE UNITED AND KEEP THE CANDLE OF ONE BODY BURNING!"
This is awesome!!! Keep up the great spirit!!!
