In almost eleven years time, I've yet to find a more convincing tribute to our fallen soldiers than Mike's poem, Small Pain In My Chest. It still, more than a decade after I first read it, brings a tightness to my throat and a tear to my eye.

Thanks, Mike. Again.

....and I didn't post it this year because I thought everyone was tired of seeing it....nice to know I was wrong!

Thank you, Ron, and everyone who has enjoyed it over the years. I appreciate you all.

It's not too late to post it; you have 15 minutes EST and 4 hours still for AST.

Please post it again.
