Then On

THEN ON To the end of their lives these Soldiers fought, to protect their loved ones from the axis thoughts. Past these very graves, the trail leads on. It guides their comrades to the attack at dawn. As each buddy passes by, he stops, bows his head and says a prayer.. Then on …to do his share. Written by Rene F. Dufresne 1917-1998 Corporal in WW2 Circa 1943 This poem was recently found by my sister in an old trunk and was written by our Father Rene F. Dufresne while serving in the armed forces in the front lines During WW2. He always had a poetic bent but never had the time to develop it. God bless his soul and may he rest in peace. -Robert A. Dufresne.

I think it is awsome too, I hope he made it home to his family. My Gramps wrote poetry too and I wonder if there is a trait we inherit!
