milatary personnel

Posted to Poetry and Politics

may not be in consensus with the orders they are given, but they will follow them. i have acquaintances and family members who may be directly involved in this war. if so - my feelings regarding the conflict will not be reflected in my feelings toward them nor any communication i have with them. they have my "support", to me that is my prayers for their safety, mail to them.

and remembering our troops reception in this country after Viet Nam - don't want to go there. We must SUPPORT them... in whatever capacity they are involved in this war. That's what "supporting" them means to me.

but then again, i'm all about putting up signs like ellipsis and letting them come over and "lean on me"... yeah, baby, now that's real support.
