A decision: enlistments, papers and contracts are signed. Once a childish super hero will now become a hero for our country. Departure day arrives, and tears are shed as goodbyes are made. My soldier’s first farewell.
It’s letter day… Things are tough, and there is a constant ringing of gunshot through the air. The sight of his comrades, wounded and dying hurts his heart, but he will press on. He is being moved to a new area, and will say goodbye to the land he knew. My soldier’s second farewell.
Two men arrive in full uniform with faces worn and grim. My boy is gone to heaven to wait for us there. Today he came home, and tears were shed as goodbyes were made. My soldier’s last farewell.
