THE FACE OF A SOLDIER

These words are dedicated by the author to the scenes at
the National Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC
"There on the wall are the faces of soldiers, men and
women who fought in Korea, faces of soldiers stare into
your eyes, so much to learn from these faces on a wall, for
these are the soldiers of the forgotten war, their heroic
efforts stopped a communist threat, and even though
these soldiers you haven't met, cannot spring to life,full
fields on their back a BAR in their hand, another soldier
carries the field glasses in his hand, they were the ones
sent so long back in 1950, by our Uncle Sam to a strange
foreign land, faces of soldiers stare at me, freedom isn't
free, unless you've fought for the cause of liberty, these
men  gave their all, these faces of soldiers on a gray stone
wall."  --Celine Rose Mariotti- (Daughter of a Korea War
Veteran and member of the KWVA)
