"While you think of how to embezzle funds, we think of how to attack external forces" - Nigerian Soldier writes

Chibuzor Ever who is a soldier, wrote this piece describing the life of a Nigerian soldier. Read below
Story of a Soldier
 It is not easy been a soldier!! We have cloth in our wardrobes but the nature of the job leaves no chance to wear them!! Patrol and escort both in the summer and winter dressing combatantly everyday like an astonaut while others are asleep we are awake... While you drink table water and beverages in your homes, we manage water in the jungle we do this just to suppress terrorism!!!

You lay on beds at night while we lay on tents and trench... While you think of how to embazzle funds we think of how to attack external forces!!! It is a work to God and humanity. You fucking scream when you are cut by blade we endure when we are hit by a bullet!!! When a soldier die, they dont take it as anything.... To them it is a normal thing!!! But when their wives have miscarriage the whole earth will hear their cry!!! May be you dont know we are also born from a woman. Ohh Lord! I pray that every person, people, community, organization or parastatal that whishes me and my fellow soldiers awful death.....dry thunder from heaven should strike them down.. Do i hear you say amen!

War saw war never saw war until war saw war.... To all serving and the dead soldiers,may all your blood and sweats ask those you don't wish you well. @freeborn,talk is cheap but ask you parents what happened on the 6th of July 1976 to 15 of January 1970. I pity your condition

Neptune said...

War saw war never saw war until war saw war. To all living and dead soldiers, may the forgotten terror of war never strike you down. @freeborn go ask your parents and elders what happened on the 6th of July 1967 to 15 January 1970.talk is cheap but you are just a kid.

It would have been a better poetic expression of reality if only the end wasn't part of it. I wish you well bro! Just hang on and soldier on cos your good work will lead to a good fruition.

It is for this reason that the fork was created to be used for picking food as against the fingers. If everyone adopts this simple principle, this soldier would have more courage to defend our country. But when he remembers that some people are acquiring what they did not deserve or worked for, and they go scot free, he feels bad. That indeed is the essence of equity and justice. If you chose to use your fingers as against the fork...you deserve to "get equal measure of punishment . That's the only way to move forward.

Freeborn,
The soldiers didn't join the military so that they will be used to play political games. They didn't sign up for polical games.
Secondly, when you are a soldier, do you just decide to resign and then resign??????

I no blame you sha, if to say boko boys don do anything wey directly affect you e.g. bombing of your mouth, you for no write anyhow about this...

This soldier's article reminds me of Simonide's epitaph to mark the memorial of the Spartan (Greek) soldiers who took orders and died while defending their motherland in 480 BC at Themopylae mountain and it read

Go tell Spartans thou who passeth
by
Obedient to their law we lie here

That was to commemorate those soldiers who died while trying to hold ground in the battle of 480 BC. May the good Lord keep the men and officers of Nigerian Army (NA) who fight on in the front that we may celebrate this Xmas. Let us remember them that lost their lives in our collective defence so that these men like Abraham Lincoln would say 'will not have died in vain'

I'm not seeing any humility, courtesy or discipline which is the landmark of a soldier in this post. He has indirectly insulted people who have chosen other profession outside the military. I strongly suggest that someone should be cautioned before he gets so jealous of others with his arms.

stephen said...

words, but so much anger. we wish everyone in the military well and we pray for you all, that God protect you as you protect others too. this i say AMEN too...

I served in the Nigerian Army as a boy soldier, and also served in the US Army as a soldier. While it was always nice to feel appreciated for my service, at no point did I compare my circumstances with that of the average civilian. The civilian owed me nothing, I voluntarily enlisted in the Army(of both countries),I was fully aware of the occupational hazards, and I was paid to do my job. This fellow needs to soldier-up and do his job without worrying about the presumed privileges of civilian life. The doctor, sometimes, stays up at work for days while everyone sleeps, the security guard stays up while others sleep...many other people do many other unsavory jobs but take it in stride as it is a job they took on. This attitude of resentment is what leads military personnel in Nigeria to engage in maltreatment of civilians whom they are paid to protect from external aggressors. Perhaps, some of Nigeria's soldiers expected to remain in garrison throughout their careers, and now lash out uncontrollably when they are actually deployed to do the job for which they are paid and trained. In the US Army, the reality of combat was ever present, hence we constantly trained like we fight, and spent as much time as possible perfecting our craft to ensure that we always get the upper hand against the enemy. What civilians are doing with their lives should be the last thing on a soldiers mind. In conclusion, I'll advice this soldier to be a professional, focus on the task at hand, so that he can be a useful asset to his unit, as they strive to successfully execute their mission. Stop worrying about civilians and focus your attention on your primary objective, which is to obliterate the enemy. God speed!
