You are walking down the street and you see this guy...
And you know he was in the Nam.

Maybe it's the way he moves.

You strike up a conversation with a stranger...
And you know he spent time In-Country.

Maybe it's the thousand yard stare.

You are listening to someone and you hear that catch in his voice...
And you know part of him is still back there.

Maybe he lost someone too close.
Or he lost part of himself that he still hasn't found.

Like I've said before,
Some made it home.
Some made it home in boxes.
Some never made it home.
None made it home unchanged.

So, Welcome Home, Brother.

Job well done.

God Bless you.

You made a difference.

If you need it, I've got your back.
