The last time I heard your voice Was when you were on the S.S. Charlotte You said I was ornery For breaking your computer I haven't heard from you since No letters, e-mails, or phone calls I'm worried sick But I shouldn't be Because you're worried about me And my well-being That's why you left for the Navy To protect all of US Literally the United States And I am grateful Godspeed to you, cousin We're with you all the way

I know the feelings of a son going into the force but not in war times. It must be hard on the family when they don't hear. Keep writing. Sara

I know the feeling of no letters, e-mails, and phone calls. It's devastating to know they are in danger and you don't know anything of them...Raul
