A Good Friend

Memorial Day May 31, 2004

If in Country I should die
Point my feet toward morning sky,
Then among the stars and sun
Barefoot I will run.

Dawn over the valley I look
At mornings cold fresh brook.
Ankle deep with numb toes chill
Comes suns rise above the hill.

Blood red the evening sky
Bone cold the stars pass by.
Forgotten weariness awash my soul
Flooding memories reach their goal.

Remember in the earth I lay
Longing for the morning play.
Remember, Jimmie,
When we were friendly.
Jim True 2004

Dedicated to Rudy P. Krissman, a good friend. 9/28/1938 to Vietnam 7/10/1968

Remembering An American Hero

Dear EON2 Rudy Paul Krissman, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
