|Vietnam Vet Reading a Letter From Home|
I suspect most of us knew someone who received a "Dear John" letter during his tour. I can't imagine what goes on inside the mind of a young man whose entire world is turned upside down by a few written words from the person he lived for.
I have no sense of where you are,
My memory whispers your name
Your image comes into focus
Each day I waken
After so many years,
Can one so old remember
SSG Cates RVN '69-'70
199th Light Infantry Brigade
Also by Loyd Cates:
“I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do, and by the grace of God, I will.” ~Everett Hale
