Veteran's Day Tribute

On Veteran's Day, Michael offered our tribute to those who:

  • have returned home with no one to greet them

  • have been told that PTSD will go away with time

  • have never been told thank you or officially welcomed home

  • returned home physically but still are haunted by nightmares of war

  • still react to backfire and break a sweat at the sound of a chopper

  • have travelled endlessly never letting roots take hold or settled down

  • hear a familiar song that takes you back to a place you’d rather forget

  • can count the friends they have on one hand for fear of losing another

  • suffer from Agent Orange exposure and are still fighting the last battle

  • fought battles in steaming jungles of Vietnam and also here at home

  • have more friends on the Vietnam Memorial Wall than they do in this life
