honoring you.....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

I only remember your picture

I only remember your picture on the wall or setting on a piece of furniture at your dad's house in Wadena. Your brother was one of my best friends when I was 16. He and your dad always missed you and love you.

"The Years Go By"

I never met Gary but he is one of four from my hometown, Wadena, Minnesota who died in Vietnam. In a town that size if you did not know the person you knew someone in their family. I think of those four all the time and wonder what could have been. They are forever young and will never be forgotten.
Each Memorial Day when the flags are placed in the cemetery it is ocean of red, white and blue. They mark the resting place of the veterans who lived a full life and the graves like Gary's whose life had really just begun. It is so sad but I believe we would all do it again if it was that time and place.
