For the Vets

whirling blades
administering Nam Angels
incoming wounded


long tours
in far away lands
bring back harsh memories


heat waves shimmering
on a foreign desert floor
men sleep in the sand


a man's voice cries out
to a lover's lonely ear
another smile dies

Hauntingly beautiful tribute. My uncle was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. He served two tours. Was never the same again.

I know what you mean, brother was in Nam and has never been the same since.

God bless our troops.
