Dear Vietnam Veteran

How it all started

I’ll never understand;

60,000 men dead

Over Vietnamese land.

It seems so useless,

But deep down inside,

All I can feel

Is a strong rush of pride

A pride for those

Who risked their lives,

And those who left

Behind their wives.

I know this “thanks”

Is hardly enough

For everything you’ve done.

But speaking for Americans

Everywhere…

Our gratitude you’ve won.

Gratefully,

Diana Pederson
