Bronze Star - 2,738 Points (October 29,1949 / Baltimore, Maryland)

Over 40 Years - Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.

Time and bad memories
kept me captive and alone
I sought the warmth
of a loving home

Once numb all over
an empty shell
Knew only rage
wanted to scream and yell

It took some time
for me to heal
To open my heart
learn to feel

I weathered the storm
made it through
Let my family
show me what to do

A loving wife
lead me by the hand
Made me whole
no longer a broken man

Put Nam in it's place
in the far distant past
Let's hope my peace
will continue to last

    Man my friend, I sincerely hope your peace of mind and soul do last... forever.
    All of you people who went over there deserve peace, and understanding.
    Thank you, very much.
    Peace pal.
