Thank You to all Soldiers who have protected this Great Nation of ours. My father passed on Dec. 30, 2013. He was a WWII Glider Pilot. He was in the Army/Aircorp 9th Corp, 442nd Division, 306th Troop Carrier Group. He flew Holland, France, Belgium and Germany. His main mission was Operation Market Garden. Over half the men died in that battle. He received the Air Combat Metal for his Service. He was my HERO and my BEST FRIEND. He always said the HEROS were the ones that gave their lives during the war. He said he was not a HERO. I always thought he and all men like him were HEROS. I'd like to share a poem I wrote a few weeks after he died. It's called "Soldiers Pain" Thanks,
- Frank L. Vance IV

Dedicated to Frank L. Vance III and all soldiers:
Soldier's Pain

He is my eternal flame,
Many have come before and after,
but they are all the same

Young boys protecting the world
and always taking the blame.

They didn't ask to be in this
situation, but do their job
because they love their nation.

They never have time to cry
or be afraid, something we
take for granted every day.

There is a place in my heart
for all the families that have to
be apart.

I owe a great amount of appreciation
because my father was part of
the Greatest Generation.

Many lose their life and
some come home to their wife.

The ones that are sane settle
back in society and sustain,
but the ones that gave and
saw pain will never be the same.

If they make it back sane
I think they wonder why we all complain.

So, if you see a soldier
give them a hand shake and
a hug because freedom is
not free and they sacrifice
everything for you and me.

We will never know a
Soldiers Pain because they
risk and give their lives for our gain.
