Conflict & Justice

I was a soldier in a war I hated, and today I remember my fallen comrades

Every memorial day, I think about Wild Bill Wood, and also Danny, Frost, Carver, Riv, Culbreth, Spike and the other people I saw die, but never learned their names or knew their stories. I think about my own place in the world, what it means to be grateful to have been a soldier in a war I hated, and how that war changed me, how it changed a tiny sliver of my generation.
