A soldier's silent night


If you can listen to this spoken word piece without choking up, you are a heartless bastard. And since I've been called one on innumerable occasions, I can speak from experience here.

Got me big-time.

For the story behind the poem and more info, go to the site.

And anyone who wants to give me attitude about the title 'soldier', know that the original poem was written by a Marine, and usually the lower case 'soldier' is used to refer to any fighting man or woman for a country. The upper case Soldier is usually used in reference to the Army specifically.
