<quoted text>Why is it that people use WWII as the last "good" conflict. Regardless of the conflict, our men and women who serve with honor in the armed services of the United States are put in harms way by their superiors and deserve our respect, honor and love.
You are so right!!! The grunts in the trenches are only doing what they are told and deserve total respect and honor!

HIS GREATEST FEAR

He was five-years-old
checking under his bed
looking in the closet
sure the monster
would jump out at him.
Even as he was
tucked into bed
thoughts of wild things
shadowed his dreams.
“Leave the light on
mom”, he pleads.

He outgrew that teddy bear
although, it still keeps watch
reminiscent of childhood days.
He worries now about his life,
his wife, children he now
readies for bed.
Saying goodnight
saying goodbye
he leaves to serve his country.
Come back home soon
she whispers as he
walks out the door.
I love you.

A few close calls
fear rises like a phantom
in the night.
Captured, shackled,
he sits alone in a cell
thinks of his life,
the pain, the joy.
He can barely withstand
the beatings, the torture
as he thinks of home.
Yes, this is his greatest fear
Being alone… Dying alone.

HONOR BOUND

Farewell
America’s Son
Farewell
Sleep in peace
your job is done
Darkness overshadows us
like the setting of the sun
We should not despair
for there is light
Tender memories bring the dawn
as welcoming thoughts shining bright
portray your spirit that lives on

Farewell
America’s Son
Farewell
You served your country true
With respect we stand beside you
and return to you the honor due
As veterans we are a band of brothers
And for all that’s been said
And for all that’s been done
Thank you again, America’s Son
This life on earth but a temporary endeavor
But freedom, yes freedom, lasts forever
Farewell

Offering my respect, and honor for those who participated in the invasion of Normandy!

Not too many WWII G.I.'s left now. If you know any of them, please honor their heroism and sacrifice by thanking them for what they did, before it's too late.
