This song really hits home for me. I’m not a soldier, but over the past year i was involved with one. And i can remember that i was like the girl in the song, the girl waiting for the soldier that she loved. Although my romance did not end like that, i can remember that i was terrified about what could happen to him. And i knew that those letters and just talking to me helped him through it. But I heard this song just before we had started seeing each other, and thinking how i didnt want to be that girl, but even though i knew anything was possible, i fell for this guy, and i waited for him, even after we had broke up.
I actually kind of admire the Dixie Chicks for this song, because it shows the side of those who get their hearts broken due to the governments decision to send troops off to war. Especially during times when there was conscription, manadatory enrolment in the military, where they didnt have the choice. I understand now how much a war affects the family and friends of each soldier, becuase for each soldier theres many people who care about them. Who seem to be almost overlooked.
This song truly shows how each soldier can impact someone elses life.
