Memorial Day 2009

The somber sounds of a bagpiper...
Friends and family call out the names
of loved ones
who had returned
from the Vietnam War
only to die a premature death.
Her father died of cancer,
attributed to Agent Orange.
Many post-service deaths were attributed
to post-traumatic stress disorder.
She hopes the memorial will bring
some measure of comfort
to the families and friends
of those who died.
It will remind them their loved ones
are not forgotten
