|Every time I hear of a listing of "casualties" in war, I know the count does not include those who come home batterred and crippled...and mostly "forgotten". This is our Nation's s-h-a-m-e! Our veterans deserve much more from our Government and people.
Their stories should be told over and over again; your poem is raw and telling, as it should be. Thank you, Lloyd!
Blessings and Love - Micke

|Lloyd, well said by a veteran who knows that for many (most) the war never ends. As you know, not all war protesters were in the classroom (understandably) but some of us vets of earlier wars were in the streets. Was anyone listening? So glad you're home where you belong--with your trusty pen in hand. -gene.|

|It was sad, I greeted and worked with those who were sent back to work. Imagine, some of them got to my head. They never knew: I have learned that many of them are now dead.|

|There were many who returned home never to be the same again. The silent fears, the heartache at what was witnessed that remains forever as do the secrets you heart and soul holds...
Be always safe,

You've lived this, you know this, it's intimate, personal, real...and powerful as your writing always is.
Good to see you post poetry again.
