I'm a Vietnam veteran who served at more than one fire base with the 1st
Infantry. The poem mirrors actual nights I have experienced, right down to
the baby sleeping in the room with my wife and me. It is surprisely
healing to find this "flashback" so beautifully and frightenly expressed. I
feel a kinship to those veterans of my great grandparents' era. I no
longer feel quite so alone. Bless you Walt Whitman.

I enjoy the fact that Whitman has already through his poem has described
the effects of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) in the Artilleryman's
vision. His description and exactness of the sounds of battle/war are so
powerful and visual.
