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.

we were wounded together

i have posted here several years ago and i was tracked down recently by a close person to Frankie. she needed some closure that i was able to provide because Frankie and i were Nam buddies and i was hit just before him on that second of december 1970. it was 3 days before my 20th birthday. If anyone else needs some sense of closure my email is [email protected] if you google tim stanton vietnam war you will se an interview with our medevac pilot
