Veterans Day Backstory

Answering a Question

The first man I killed was small and
hidden in the tall grass.

Being a killer forever changes you.
Even if you learn to be kind and considerate and civilized
that part of you is always there
hiding down inside
awaiting a chance.

A normal person doses not wan to kill and
will avoid it at all costs.
The military won't allow you to remain normal.
It doesn't matter if you think
you are smart enough
not to get caught up in theri lies.
They will change you.

Don't be sucked into the biggest myth and lie
that killing and dying for your counry is somehow heroic.

Really be all that you can be.

--from Grave Lines by Larry Kershner.
