: Ode To Gulf '91
: I look at you.
: I salute you.
: I pay ultimate respect _ to you.
: I think _ I served you.
: I went where _ my war was.
: I think _ I made it.
: I skated through _
: I won't be like the rest of you.
: I didn't have to die _
: I came home alive.
: I became part of an elite America,
: I lived through a war!
: I finally realize _ after years now.
: I brought home, my destiny _
: I brought my death _ home with me.
: 5 October, 1999

It is sooooo true!!!! My dad died in Sept. of '98
from GWS...It is something that is very hard to deal with, he wouldn't talk about it to anyone...it hurts so bad because it seems like he went through it all alone...... i miss him so very much!!! thank you for reminding me!!!
