Colin F. Jones


Some volunteered to go to war,
Some were conscripted without choice
Some chose not to go to war,
Some protested with loud voice.
Some joined none combat units,
Some volunteered to risk their all,
Some went where they were told to go,
Some fled from the fearful call.
All were people living life,
According to the way it was for them,
None perfect ‘mid the strife,
That sought to compare and condemn.
By your own principles you must live,
Tis your choice what you give.
