Yvonne’s War Poetry Web Site
This webpage is dedicated to all War Veterans who bravely fought for their country to preserve democracy so that we, the people could live in peace and speak our minds without fear of reprisal.
This webpage is also dedicated to the Doctors, Nurses and Flight Medics who under stressful and dangerous conditions gave the wounded medical care.
Also remembered are the War Journalists who lived with the soldiers and documented their battles so we would know of their terrible ordeals.
Let us not forget the Chaplains who gave the dying soldiers their last rites and gave comfort to the others in way of prayer.

MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS ABOUT WAR
"I do not glorify war......I despise it .....
When our soldiers are called to fight I pray for their safe return."
THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD
AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD
AGE SHALL NOT WEARY THEM
NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN
AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN,
AND IN THE MORNING:
WE SHALL REMEMBER THEM.
