Cameras connecting
you to the war
dialogue telling you
why and what for.

At the very moment your 
eyes fill with tears
Someone says something funny
and you laugh with no fears.

A brilliant combination of
danger and love
Humanity portrayed
making you a part of. 

This series that kept
you on the edge of your seat.
Evoking emotion
while soldiers compete. 

I'd watch with my father
a man of the law. 
He'd teach me the reason
people fight and then crawl. 

I would escape into
the television set
Pretending I was no
rookie, but a vet. 

Captain, Corporal
Father or Major
They made wartime bearable
so I'd watch and then wager.
