|From one who always rhymes their poems, I found this one of yours to be quite moving, I actually had a vision in my mind of what you saw and felt, How often we forget the sacrifice military personnel deal with each day. Thanks for writing this Larry.|

|I loved this poem - I followed the first Gulf War in 1991 - the year our son turned 18. Now I support our brave men and women stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Thank you for the vivid images. We need to remember our loved ones, friends, and neighbors who are so many miles away & pray for their safe return.|

|A vivid and moving "snapshot," Larry.|
|Reviewed by Kimmy Van Kooten
|What's very interesting about this poem is how it actually portrays our human reactions when in stressfull situations. Our brains are programed to take in these "Snapshots", such as you express, visual and emotional, and store them forever. . .returning throughout the rest of a lifetime, always utilizing it for whatever reason, as a means to who we've become, since. . .
Love and Peace~
P.S. You must send me a friend request to my, MySpace and then I can add you :)

|Poignant and riveting. Thank you for sharing insight in a time when few seem to possess it. "We all wish we were home." As a mom of a soldier, we all wait anxiously for this period in history to be over.
All the best - Melinda
