On Being a Veteran
those years are forever gone.
still haunt us.
we welcome the respect and care we receive at our VA clinics
and know, at the deepest level, that we are all brothers and
sisters ~ joined by a common bond of
sacrifice and service.
It’s an intangible bond but it's there and I feel it strongly when
I meet another Veteran ~ particularly a disabled one.
It's a sense of knowing and acknowledgement that goes beyond
words but resonates in the soul ~
