but I was thinking about them anyway.
The sacrifice that was made
whether they were POW slaves,
or not I don't know.
I just know they have selfless souls.
Some came home to awaiting wives
while others gave their lives
so I could be free
from a dictatorial monarchy.
Some soldiers become veterans
before the war is over.
I think of Desert Storm,
and what the norm
is now we're in a war
with Iraq again about terrorism.
My daddy fought for his country
in the last century.
First in Korea then Vietnam,
but he came home.
I would do anything to have him back
among the living as a matter of fact.
