    This brought tears to my eyes. I too had someone who went through horrible experiences in the war and would not talk about it much. There is never glory in war only broken lost souls who have seen what we hope our sons never do. Well done. Betty

    This is quite well done. A lovely mixed meter ....and easy-speak with rhyme sprinkled in. Then the theme and emotion......hard for any serious reader to put down I would think. Well done. M
