Ten reasons why parents make the best special forces soldiers

1.       We are used to little or no sleep while performing lifesaving delicate tasks and keeping that status for years and years.

2.       We are used to immerse ourselves in constantly changing and evolving cultures and learning new languages and symbolism every day.

3.       We are responsible for both short term and long term planning and being accountable for what we do by our success rate.

4.       We are always on call like the ancient minute men and always work until the job is done.

5.       We are bringing people up and helping them find their independence and place in society.

6.       We are technicians, medics, logistics, planning, security and surprise party comity all in one.

7.       We are good patient listeners and always see a way to keep on going.

8.       We are constantly dealing with red tape and forms and coding and navigating the world for the entire ship.

9.       We will go on to bring you up, to protect you and to guide you to independence even if broken and beaten.

10.   We will die to protect you without batting an eyelash.
