I wrote this poem in June 2010, after retirement, I was on a civilian assignment in Washington D.C. I visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and I was inspired to write this poem.
Honoring WW II Veterans
Life is being a warrior continuing the fight no matter the odds
And though Patton led our brave warriors to win that great war Many suffered the ultimate loss without notice or count from afar
The story of William Elliott's return from the service to his hometown
Personal experience in the life of a PTSD Vietnam veteran. Written in far northeast Colorado (Armel) while walking barefoot in wheat fields, while ankle high and very green, on the day befor Easter 2017.
I wrote an homage and wonder if you received it.
Quick look at the difficulties at returning home.
How deployments impact both the deployer and their family.
Homage to Veterans
