A GRATEFUL AMERICAN
Rhode Island, USA
*** NOT FORGOTTEN ***

PFC., BAZA, U.S., ARMY – You are an American hero, whose ultimate sacrifice, will, not be forgotten. Rest well, brave soldier. Thank you, for your sacrifice and honorable service, to this great nation. So young a life, so great a sacrifice. "SOLDIER," By George L. Skypeck, RegTM, All Rights Reserved. (No reproduction, without prior permission, By Mr. Skypeck)~ I was, that which others, did not want to be. I went, where others feared, to go and did, what others failed, to do. I asked nothing, from those, who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted, the thought, of eternal loneliness, should I fail. I have seen the face, of terror, felt, the stinging cold, of fear and enjoyed, the sweet taste, of a moments love. I have cried, pained and hoped, but most, of all, I have lived times, others would say, were best forgotten, at least someday, I will be able, to say, that I was proud, of what I was, A SOLDIER.
