Subject: Thanks for the Poem
Date: Tue, 5 Dec 2000 18:52:56 EST

Hello Folks

Just a quick note on the poem from a Yank. If you've never been there,
you have no appreciation for what it's like to be a lonely soldier in a war
torn battle zone at Christmas time. You welcome the shelling to take your
mind off the lonelyness and your loved ones. I've been there (four time) and
done that and I certainly don't want any of my grandchildren to ever have to
go through it. The poem really hit this old soldier where it counts. I
won't forget it soon.
