Arlington National Cemetery - May 27, 2007
Once long ago my daughter asked me, "What did you do during 
the Vietnam War?"    I did some thinking about this.
And as a Submariner during that time, here is what I came up with:
Sometimes on stormy nights when the power flickers,
I think of men I don't even know working out-there.
Somewhere in the darkness.
Going about the business of keeping the lights on.
What did I do in the Vietnam war?
I was just punching holes in the ocean.
Somewhere in the darkness.  Helping keep the lights on.
