Memories of and After Thoughts on Viet-man.

 


# 7 November 23 2003


 


Foregoing life limb, and


Happiness! Thinking someday,


We could rest, While fighting in


A far away land, My wife


Nancy, Became pregnant!


By another Man!


 


With our Q-allotment money


They did ride, She bought a


Red Mustang, nineteen sixty-five


That Q-allotment money meant for


Home soon dwindled


And then it was Gone!


 


We humped through the


Jungle, Rice patties and Fields


All day long, for our C-ration meals


Neither wrong nor right, We


Fought for our lives, As Charlie


You see, proved quite an adversary!



It reminded me or tales of yore


When the British were on our Shore!


May God Bless

So many nightmares still live in the minds of our brave. I was only a young teenagers then and even then frlt nothing but gratitude for the boys, men and women who fought that war. This was short but packed a hell of a punch. Thank you!

Wow...a really rough patch.
My husband worked on F105s when they returned from their sorties.

Things are better now, I hope?
