Remember Afghanistan? For that matter, remember Iraq? When the Iraq war ended, and I use the term loosely, there was no ticker tape parade down the streets of Manhattan filled with returning troops. There was no time defying photograph of a nurse draped over the arms of a Sailor, destined to forever be lip-locked in [...]
I wrote this for all by brother and sister in arms, that has been injured in any way, mentally or physically. “You’re Not Incomplete” By: James Harrell You thought that sip of whiskey That you ordered at the bar Would ease some of the pain Maybe heal some of the scars But it never works [...]
