This is part of a poem by an Institute professor of mine from college. He was in the Vietnam War and despite the long hours he stood, teaching, in front of us, the number of activities he went to with us, we didn't know until after we graduated that he had lost a leg in the conflict:
...And now, their offering accepted,
Their sacrifice men will laud,
Because, in offering their gift to man,
They really gave to God.
Thank you Brother Parson.
And thank you Grandad, who was born as WWI began and served on a hospital ship in WWII:
Thanks to them all.
This is me, on Veteran's Day.
