THis is what a hero looks like !

Updated on November 12, 2013

I have written much about him
or at least about hero's
My brother Al a quiet
solemn veteran
of Viet -Nam

So for the benefit of those
who need to know
This is what a true hero
looks like

He marches in parades and lays
wreathes in honor
of those dead before
their own time
his friends

He pushes old veterans
in wheelchairs into
the parades for those
who honor them

Yes my friends this IS
exactly what a true
hero looks
