honoring you...

There is a place
Not far from here
Where spirits walk
And heroes live
And honor still resides.

It is a wall
With names inscribed
Of those who served
When they were asked...
The brothers of my youth.

I go there still
To walk and think
About my life,
And what I've done since
And things that might have been.

There is a debt
I can't repay
Too many lives were spent.
And one man's life cannot suffice
To make their deaths worthwhile.

But there is hope
In the memory
Of those we leave behind
Who know the price that freedom brings
Who can carry on in kind.

I send you now
To touch a name
So the vision can be passed
Remember there is honor still
It is for you to see it lasts.

They are not dead
And have a wish
As all old soldiers do
The reflection you see before you now
Is their wish to live in you.

Met his son today

We were honored to meet his son today and he told us about his dad speaking with such pride. He told us to look for his name on the wall the next time we were there and we certainly will. It is always an honor to meet the families so we can visit their loved ones on the wall while we visit ours. As we were leaving we were told he bought our breakfast, so thank you to a wonderful fellow veteran!
