  1. I came across this poem. I know it goes back a long way. Any of the educated, or good researchers, able to find a title and author??

    I was that which others did not want to be.
    I went where others feared to go
    And did what others failed to do.
    I asked nothing from those who gave nothing
    And reluctantly accepted the thought
    Of eternal loneliness should I fail.
    I have seen the face of terror,
    Felt the stinging cold of fear
    And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love.
    I have cried, pained and hoped,
    But most of all I have lived times
    Others would say were best forgotten.
    At least some day I will be able to say that
    I was proud of what I was…
    a soldier

    I think it states our case quite well!

    Keep the Faith ... the Soldier's Faith!

    Edit to add: Ithink I'll make it my signature block! hehe
