I now know why men who have been to war yearn

to reunite.

 

Not to tell stories or look at old pictures. Not to

laugh or weep.

 

Comrades gather because they long to be with the

men who once acted at their best:

 

Men who suffered and sacrificed, who were

stripped of their humanity.

 

I did not pick these men.  They were delivered by

fate and the military.

 

But I know them in a way I know no other men.  I

have never given anyone such trust.

 

They were willing to guard something more

precious than my life.


They would have carried my reputation, the

memory of me.

 

 It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason

we were so willing to die for one another.

 

As long as I have my memory, I will think of them

all, every day.

 

I am sure that when I leave this world, my last

thought will be of

 

 my family and my comrades -- such good men.
