Hawk (Colonel Ted Guy, Retired. Senior Ranking Officer of POW/MIA)
(Warriors was written in memory of Colonel Ted.)
Hawk was a man.
More easily said than done.
For he met every challenge head on
And never let us down.
He lead by example.
He did not falter.
He helped those around him
Understand the words, "Stand Tall".
For YEARS he was a POW.
He lived it, ate it, slept it, endured it!
Hanoi Hilton, General Delivery.
After coming home, he wanted to believe his country would not betray it's soldiers.
He argued for years against there being any POW/MIA left behind.
But the mass of evidence convinced him of something that ripped at his soul.
Until he became a leader in the fight to bring them home.
He is legend.
For he is Truth.
He is Honor.
He is Decency.
He is Warrior, still.
I am in mourning for a Hero died today.
