Story of A Army Officer

 

Every time I go back to my home to my friends and family, they crack jokes on my job as a soldier. I am told that it is an easy job unless you are serving in the war zone. You get good salaries, free home and cheap medical treatment and plot by time you retire.
What they do not understand are the hardships we go through during our service at army. All the perks we get are no way near to any compensation for our efforts in the rough terrains like Baluchistan, Siachen, Durand Line (Pak-Afghan border) and the entire L.O.C (Line of Control: Indo-Pak border). We stay away from our parents, siblings, children and loved ones for months. Sometimes we are posted at places with no or less cell phone reception or any other communication method. We are trained to be fearless and now even death does not fear us. We have gotten use to of guns, bullets, wounds, blood and death.
I was posted in Malam Jabba a few months ago. It is a tourist place and every weekend hundreds of people come here with their families and friends for skiing and vacations. Just try imagining for once how we feel seeing those happy families, while staying thousand miles away from ours.

 

Respect from the core of our hearts. We owe our freedom, peaceful living with our families to you and your family and to the families of many soldiers.
