copes creations

The author is a retired Field Artillery Officer and an Anthropologist by degree. He gives his view of war and preparing for war with internal and external experience as well as his experience of politics within the military and oneself. He illustrates how some of us as humans crave war for the purpose of our own improvement in our positions and at times also just for a want to go to a war. In his time of military service he worked and look at the military from the view point of an enlisted soldier as well as an officer. He earned four enlisted Military Operation Skills in the aviation, medical and field artillery areas. He branched in Field Artillery as an officer. Going to a war was many of the authors desires to study the human race.


Excerpt

PAPER MEDAL

Upon his back he lay, his final day.
Into the sand his life poured from him
There upon the sand of his own land.
It was there he met the victorious ones.
From his shattered armored vessel he did crawl,
only to escape such flames, compelled from hell.
Alone; here he was left, failure of war.
Onward in fury the gallant and heroic charged.
That is heroes; perceived and seen by many.
Though here, through my eyes I saw bravery,
for reluctantly into his pocket he did reach.
From there he retrieved a picture of life,
a picture of two; like father, like son.
In his hand he did hold, his life.
That life, which he must now leave.
A hero that he was—medal in hand.
