World War II

You meet life long friends in the Army, or any branch

of military service     a  brotherhood  watching out for one another

We were told to walk to an

undisclosed location

It was cold and rainy and miserable

We whispered or did not talk at all

My best friend stepped on a land mine

I did not

I found his broken body               I screamed  and cried and felt like a girl

I picked him up and carried him bloody and dead   body blown to bits

I lifted his dog tags to give to his family

Why did I live?

I still hear his screams
