this is a poem that i wrote the other day. we were giving the assingment to give something to the soilders in iraq something from our heart. i wrote this. please let me know what you think. my teaher who was a vietnam vet and so did me grandfather who is a vet also, they both read it and were very touched.
Freedom because of the brave
they're brothers, mothers, daughters, and sons
wearing boots and toting guns
laying down their only life
setting aside their worries and strifes
they're in a world full of hate
where every move can determine their fate
they miss the simple things they left behind
and constanly keep them on their mind
they face a harsh reality
and pray for immortality
they share a special bond with each other
like that of a friend or brother
they see things that they'll never share
with someone who wasn't over there
cause they don't expect us to understand
we have never had to save our home land
they want reassurance that they're loved and needed
so that their misson can be completed
they love the gifts, food, and cards
for when the nights get hard
but they need support most of all
so their victory flag can fly nice and tall
by caitlyn wheeler
please don't take this without asking
thanks for all that you have done

Any Marines out there who served with Lance Corporal James Huff, of Medina County, Ohio, who served in 68-69 with 2/11 marines, 1st Marine Division? (james was killed in Danang 4/3/69). Im a collector of war letters. I bought a batch of original letters that he mailed to a girl named Kristy Reimer. Maybe I can learn more about James. End of October 1968, James got extended for 6 more months. He was planning to go home April 1969. His letters are brutally honest. A buddy in the trenches on a hill next to James, lost an arm. James saw guys get killed all around him. There was an operation where the helicopter pilot took a bullet, and the co-pilot had to return to base, and the platoon had to board another helicopter to report to a combat position. James was part of a forward observer company. James took shrapnel to his arms and legs a month and a half before he got killed. He healed and went back into the field on ops.
