"Sharing can be a way of healing. Grief and loss can isolate,
anger even alienate. Shared with others, emotions unite
as we see we aren't alone. We realize others weep with us."
~Susan Wittig Albert

Through our writing, we walk out of the darkness into the light
together, one small step at a time, recording history, educating
America, and we are healing.

Currahee Soldier

Currahee Soldier

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 moment's love.

I have cried, pained, and hoped, but most of all,
I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.

At least some day I will be able to say that I was proud of
what I was...a Currahee Soldier
of the 506th Infantry Regiment
(Airborne - Airmobile - Air Assault)
