The Reunion

This was wrutten in Washing DC on Veterans day weekend.
My old unit from Vietnam held a reunion there.
I met some old friends and new brothers.

Today I met my Brothers from the past
Who like me years ago were put to task
Some I knew some I didn't but love them all I do
For all the hardship, pain and memories we went through
We are now old in body but still young of heart
Satisfied in knowing we did our part
I wish I could have met them all
But so many now have answers Gods last call
Our lives have all been twisted these past years
Meeting my Brothers let me shed many held back tears
History will show that we made our mark
Hoping that what we did will start a spark
For younger brothers to step up and take the lead
To defend our country with honor and deed
Thank you all my Brothers in arms
May our Lord keep us all safe from harm
