A poem dedicated to the Atomic Veteran


They were called,
They went and they trusted.

They were awed
They were loyal and proud.

They were silent,
They were true and faithful.

They were sick,
They were sacrificed and betrayed.

They were denied,
They fought and were defeated.

They were pained,
They cried and died.

They are Honored
They are loved and remembered.

But only by those who know.

They are gone but never forgotten,
They are our true Heroes.
