Such a moving poem! You captured the emotions of the soldiers who returned from Vietnam, only to be ridiculed for fighting, and thousands giving their lives. I like the various ways you mentioned the flag in the poem. Thanks for sharing. Blessings. Carol
Your poem is the true picture, especially of Vietnamese bam. Friends of mine who served told me thay were spit at and harassed at airports and bus terminals when they came home!
So many soldiers fought long and hard in Nam.
Thank you for revealing what it's really like to be a soldier.
Exceptional, Jan. Thank you for caring so much for vets.
That's creepy but when we see the news of those who kill and do violence for no reason other than pure evil, I guess your poem fits. Not sure if the "No Rules" contest is for the form or the moral content of the narrator.
