We Conquer From Above

"WHAT I AM!

I became that breed of soldier that others
wanted to be, dreamed of and aspired to,
but never became. This had placed me
apart and made me what I am today!

I accepted the physical hardship, the
psychological stress, the brunt of resentment
and the emotional strain.
This made me stronger, tenacious, proud
and loyal. This made me what I am today!

I have experienced fear, pain, exhaustion
and discomfort. This has made me
determined, confident and self-reliant.
This has made me what I am today!

I have been exposed to compassoin, joy
and comradeship. This makes me realize
what it means to be part of a team.
This has made me what I am today!

I have felt despair, embarrassment and
hurt, but above all I have felt pride.
I have fallen, bounced back and soared.
This has made me what I am today!

I have walked the walk and jumped the jump
whereas others have only talked the talk.
This has made me what I am today:
An Airborne Soldier"
