How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!



That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?

Untitled

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Untitled

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"

"If"

My Only Son

GONE!

"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

Do You Remember When?

The Saturday matinee at the local movie.
With a club card and a dime you could get
a bag of popcorn or a caramel all-day sucker.

Buck Jones, Hop-a-long Cassidy,
The Lone Ranger, King Kong,
The Mummies Tomb, Frankenstein,
and a fifteen minute serial.

On the radio…
Jack Armstrong the All-American Boy!
     (Eat your wheaties!)
Bing Crosby’s; "Swinging on a Star."

War rationing:
Chocolate, bubble gum, sugar, meat,
shoes, tires, gasoline, and about
everything else.  

Saving stamps, war bonds, gold star mothers.
Black-outs, air raid drills, victory gardens
and V-mail.

If you remember these things,
Then you lived through World
War Two.

You will have to admit,
It was a different time
and place, that’s
why we shake our heads
at today's pace and grin.
