    Pondering The Day After
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I have always wondered, what it was to stand the field. The cool mist and fresh frost on the ground, a sweet smell of grass...bluegreen and unseen, thick and supple to the boot. Sweat, hot..but cool....standing together, but alone. The moment of glory....disgrace. To be the field, the field of death........the glorious field of hot streaming lead, .58cal maxi`s...tearing flesh...ripping bones....screaming cries. Freedom gained.....Freedom given....This 4th day and the 5th of many. God bless those who have given and those who gave all, to a nation of the free and the brave. When did it change..........Freedom........................

    "When did it change............Freedom".

    What came to mind is the fact that for the many of us who have fought, we understand the cost of freedom. Those of earlier generations know the cost of freedom. But what about the next generation? Do they or will they know the cost of freedom? Will they appreciate the sacrifices that were made for their freedom? Could they imagine what might have been if those sacrifices hadn't been made?
