Remember Our Fallen

The Sky Soldier didn't run and hide in Canada.
He left family and home to serve GOD and
COUNTRY in a far off land called Vietnam. We, the
SKY SOLDIER did not lose any battles to the NVA or
the VC. Our war was lost here at home. Between the
news media and our politicians, we did not stand a
chance in hell to win that war. To return home and be
spat upon by our fellow countrymen and called baby
killers was to much to take. So, we hid within ourselves,
built barriers that no one could penetrate. We hid the
fact that we were even involved in that so-called dark
past of American history. It's sites like these that give
the SKY SOLDIER pride and show that there is no
shame, that we only did what our country asked of us.
We lost our youth in Vietnam. That is why sites like
this help bring back and rekindle that little spark of
youth that we left behind so many years ago.

life as yet untouched by tragedy.

I was that which others cared not to be.
I went where others feared to go.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing.
And, reluctantly, accepted the thought of eternal loneliness should I fall.
I have seen the face of terror, felt the chill of fear, warmed to the touch of love.
I have hoped pained cried.
But, foremost, lived in times others would say best forgotten.
At the least in later days, I will be able to say with greatest Pride, that I was indeed
