God Bless them all.

A very well-poised and poignant poem...well penned!
|Reviewed by Nickolaus Pacione
|This reminds me of my two uncles who served in Nam, one talks about the time he saw over there -- the other doesn't. One jumped out of the helicopters and the other repaired generators. This is a good write, and one that needed to be said.|

Such powerful words. I shed tears reading this insightful poem. It brought back the memories of friends and cousins taken from this life way to soon in a war where the rules seemed constantly up for grabs. As I always thank any veteran I meet for his/her service, I would like to thank you for writing this sensitive jewel. Thanks Sherry

You've touched a heart with this poem. Having a relative who fought the awful batle
in Nam, I have seen first hand how war can ruefully destroy a persons life, not to mention
how their reflections on such a war can embed a persons mind. Although my husbands' uncle did not
do the things mentions in your poem and he had a family who was there for him when he
returned, it is still hard for him to discuss the mahem and destruction that reached out for
him in so many ways. My prayer is that this whole world can live in peace and know that God
is God for everyone.

|I remember as a child watching my dad as he left for 'Nam. I don't think I had a clue as to what that even meant back then. I was one of the lucky ones. My dad made it back, and was even able to refind his joy in life. Many, many of his friends weren't so lucky. May God bless them all, in my book they are all Hero's. And we, as a nation, should be ashamed of the way they were treated ( and still are treated) when they came home....
