He was what others did not want to be. He went where others did not want to go, and did what others failed to do. He asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and accepted the thought of eternal loneliness, should he fail. He has seen the face of terror. He has felt the sting of fear and he has enjoyed the sweet taste of moment’s Love. But most of all, he lived times best forgotten. At least he knew he was proud of what he had become – A Proud Veteran.
