A poem for a veteran

-A A +A

To the editor:
An Army veteran visited the Shallotte Home Depot store recently with his wife, who was wearing an Army sweatshirt.
He was in a wheelchair on a ventilator. She told me he was an Army adviser in El Salvador and had been shot while assigned there. The helicopter that came in to rescue him was also shot down.
I wrote the following poem for him:
So Who Am I Anyway?
All flowers beautifully bloom and then will wilt.
Handsome man had been veteran to the hilt,
Having served his country through and through
