U.S. Marine Michael Bancroft shaking hands with Ret. Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North in Iraq during 2003.A week ago, I was proudly looking at a photo of my Marine son shaking hands with Ret. Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North somewhere in Iraq during the initial combat stage to remove Saddam Hussein in 2003. 

Then I found myself smiling at the thought of my attending several events at Veterans Week (November 5 - 11, 2009) in Branson, Missouri, where Oliver North will be.  Hopefully, when I return home, I will be able to place a photo with Oliver North and me next to the one I am now looking at again.

U.S. Marines emblemMoreover, these thoughts last week reminded me that while I have written several poems concerning my son's service . . . I never wrote one specifically about his and Oliver North's cherished Marine Corps.

So, I hope active and veteran Marines along with their loved ones, friends, and fellow Americans will like my poem, The U.S. Marines, as it honors all of them . . . past, present, and future.

And speaking of my return visit to Branson, Missouri, I invite you to read my poem, In The Heart Of America.  I really hope every American will experience Branson one day . . . as it will be a memorable one.

David Bancroft, Founder of USA Patriotism! I also hope veterans or loved ones of veterans will share an articlepoem, photo, and/or story about their Veterans Day experience for listing at USA Patriotism! I especially encourage children and grandchildren of veterans from America's Greatest Generation to do so . . . as a permanent tribute to them that they too can enjoy for their remaining years!
