HONOR, COURAGE AND COMMITMENT

You hugged your children, you kissed your wives,
You told your loved ones good-bye;
You never hesitated, you never faltered,
You kept your stride.
You did your best: You gave your all,
You kept us safe,
You thought of us and not yourself.
Response was poor to your return,
And, so sad some will never learn or understand,
The honor, courage and commitment you showed.

I hope you find some comfort in these words,
for your loss and pain.
Know that you are loved, honored and respected
for showing us the meaning of
true honor, courage and commitment.

Thank You Vietnam Vets
And
Welcome Home!
