Drayton's Gazette discusses social and political issues happening around the globe through the eyes of the African American, minority and disaffected communities.

Project 365 Vets

Remember

Think of them
If not often, Now and then.
Keep a special place within
For who they were,
What they did.

In the eyes of your child
Remember those whose
Children cry for
Fathers
Too young to die;

For those still among you,
Feel their scars
And recall why.

Know that all you
Do and see,
For those thousands
Will never again be.

In that black wall
Do not appall;
Learn enough
From each faceless name
To know your shame;
And
If you forsaked
Them then,
Remember today,
For it was not their sin
That sent them to that place
So very far away.

~Randy Cribbs Vietnam 1966-67
