These Boys, Now Men

These Boys, Now Men ** They died with pride on a numbered hillside for they were Marines. These boys, now soldiers, taught not meek hand-holders, taught how to fight growing up overnight, these boys, now men. In a pointless strife giving up life these boys, now men. What is now, what was then, Heroes, all of them. ** Written after viewing my first episode being inspired by Ken Burns PBS TV series on Vietnam --Jack Avergun 09/24/2017, 5:15 AM
