I think that this poem shows us the differences of being old and young...
we have to be wise for our selves, aware our presents....

I rewrote my resume today. The last item included was:
MILITARY United States Marine Corps, Purple Heart
It should have been first, but my experience since Vietnam (1969) has been
too few people understand or appreciate the concepts duty, service,
sacrifice and honor. Dotty Parker did.

risks all for our freedom. thank you is not enough but I am very
appreciative of your sacrifice.
