For the Fallen…

 

The candle flickered to life as the veteran held the match to the wick, his vision blurred from the stuck tears. “For the fallen,” he whispered.

“How many does that make, Chief?”

The Chief breathed deep. “Too many, son. Far too many.”

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
