American Legion Post 14
I was that which others did not want to be.
I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness…should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear, and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment’s love.
I have cried, pained, and hoped…but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.
At least someday I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was…a soldier.
George L. Skypeck
