|With it being Veterans Day, I could not help but think of my son, who served with the Marines in Iraq during 2003 and all those still serving in harm's way.
Well, the next thing I found myself doing was expressing more thoughts as a parent of a troop in a new patriotic poem,
We Are Their Parents. I hope it gives all a better idea of the mindset of most parents of troops in harm's way.
And you might also have a better sense how parents of troops serving in Vietnam felt when their boys returned home to the unfair scorn by so many of their fellow citizens for reasons that were not the fault of any marine, soldier, airman, or sailor.
I salute all veterans for their
proud and brave duty to our great country... the United States of
