Dearest Vietnam Veteran,

Today, is not
just another day.
it is a day to honor
you, and others like you.
You are strong, resilient, kind
and funny
most of the time.
You are a veteran of war & life.
Many will never understand
the things that keep you at night.
Your eyes are bright
with hope. Hope for today and
an even stronger tomorrow.
you are my companion.
My close friend.
Today is for you.
All the tomorrows are for you.

The world will know your
courage, vigor, vitality, energy.
The world will know because
Your story

You are paramount.
