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


John Bird

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

Things are better now, I hope?

Weekends In New England by Linda Alexander

Love, romance, innocence, intrigue, danger, and lust. Life is complicated, and love even more so. Life, and love, can be hazardous to a lady's health. Especially if she's fallen in..
