I Am The Veteran


I fought in the trenches of World War I
In the foxholes of World War II
I was in the Korean Conflict
And the rice paddies of Vietnam too

I've been to Afghanistan
Kuwait and Iraq
Spent long months away from home
I've been to hell and back

But the stars and stripes will forever wave
In honor of those who went to their grave
To ensure that America will always be
The home of the brave and the land of the free

The bells of freedom will continue to ring
All across the USA
And it can be said, without a doubt
Our veterans paved the way

    And yes, you helped to pave the way!! Always an honor to read a patriotic poem authored by a true Veteran, Curtis. I know i am putting you on the spot BUT could you write an entry regarding a day in your life as a soldier (WW2) for Frank's contest. I would be excited to read such work from you! ....I know, you are thinkin'-Boy, she is soooo demanding. ha ha. Gwendolen

    Gwendolen: I am truly flattered that you would ask me to write for Frank's contest. In the meantime, if you look at my poems, you will see one entitled "The Disabled Vet". Read it and let me know if it may be appro-priate.
