Many sunsets ago I stood upon
the grounds, as the sounds of
reveille rushed through my veins.
Erect and still; the wind crackled
through my hair as reveries
danced through my mind.
I wondered, what will the future
be like? Who will the heroes be
when the history of this era is
My mind receded to the dry parched earth of the Rio Grande, where we patrolled over the cacti and mesquite, then faded to the Sierra Bonitas and the Western Plains.
Through the telescope of time I saw the future battles; The Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, and Korea. Then I wondered, When the final pages of history are written, will they remeber me? Will they remember my dedication and valor?
