In The Mirror
You always write such heartfelt poetry, Miss Pinky, but perhaps even more so when writing of veterans. I didn't ask "why" until I came home. I wasn't alone, but no one chose to give us a satisfactory answer. The time for questions was always after the fact...as it must be if a disciplined fighting force is to be effective. It was part of the oath I swore to a long time ago. The irony is that your enemy isn't asking "why" either. So, it's the overwhelming force versus the immovable object...and so it goes to this day and certainly beyond.
I always enjoy reading you, Miss Pinky and I offer you an owed apology which you'll find here: http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum115/HTML/000836.html
