THE FORGOTTEN HOMECOMING More than 40 years have passed and the words have never been uttered No songs, no banners, no gratitude just people who closed their shutters No parades, no ticker-tape, no standing ovation Only silence, and whispers of a protesting Nation Although there were many who might care to stand, To reach out with gratitude and shake my hand There were many more who took FREEDOM for granted No concern where my mission and feet had been planted Many had been called upon by our great Nation To bring hope and democracy for a new generation I served diligently with honor, humbly fighting to stay alive The taste of FREEDOM was always my main drive Now 45 years later as I memorialize in my mind The battles for FREEDOM and the friends left behind. Some ungrateful, taking FREEDOM for granted - that's ignorance They have no concept of the cost of battle for independence Today as I reflect on the years that have passed I still see how Patriotism is standing steadfast As I celebrate and appreciate another year of life Loving my friends, my children, my wife I embrace a generation of those that I served And a new generation that seem un-assured I hope that democracy, truth and decency are still alive And the FREEDOMS many have died for will continue to thrive God Bless America and the men and women who have sacrificed In the name of FREEDOM! And may I not forget the reason that I wrote this poem – WELCOME HOME WARRIOR, WELCOME HOME! FOR ALL THOSE WHO WERE NEVER WELCOMED HOME (or never made it home) THANK YOU ~ YOU ARE NEVER FORGOTTEN My family is GRATEFUL – Written by Sandra Eichler-Gonzalez ~ aka ~ PATRIOTCHICK Sandra@chasandcompany.com

I served as a corpsman with Delta 1/4, 3rd Marine Division in '68 & '69. Might be interested n gettting involved but can't find a way to contact you on the web site. Maybe I'm just old. Can you get back to me?
