At Ease, Soldier

Life 003

Dad served in World War II. He spent time in England and made it home safe,

to hug his mom, marry his wife, have two children.

Serving country in the military is monumental. It’s huge.

Every spring, the county veteran’s office presents family with a flag.

To mark the place of honor, the monument that sits in a Catholic cemetery,

for someone who loved country and life.

At ease, soldier…dad…you’ve earned eternal rest.

I’ll bring flowers as soon as the thawing puddles dry up.

  1. As a French native I owe eternal gratitude to the American soldiers who fought for peace in Europe. May your father rest in peace.
