On War

Poet Ed Sissman wrote many years ago commenting on what happens to a man that missed his chance for war:

Men past forty
Get up nights, look out at city lights
And wonder
Where they made the wrong turn
And why life is so long

I’ve thought about these lines and I’m thankful that I had a chance to serve in the greatest Armed Force on the face of the earth and know that when called we all did our duty.
