Peace Be With You
I knew Norman as a teenager in East Oakland in a small neighborhood called jingletown,He was always a leader and when he left for the service we all knew he was very proud to be serving. He returned on leave once, but his heart was not here, he had to return it was his duty. We all where sadden by the news of his death,he was one of us, all of us being so young.We didn't get to say Thank You Norman,but its never to late Thank You..God Bless You! its been 40something yrs and never forgot...Peace be with you

NOW SLEEP Peace has come. Now you can truly sleep,my son. The muddy field where you were laid Flag-draped, will now be green. Redbud and cherry blossoms can be seen Soon in bloom above your head. Arlington's Eternal Flame Flickers across granite rows To illuminate your name And then beneath it (with lightning's calm) Strikes in black the word VIETNAM On your own stone. Peace has come. Your medals may turn green In time, like your beret But forever there are those who'll say, "I live because he cared he came!"
