You did an excellent job of getting your point across in this piece. You are absolutely right. Freedom comes with a price, and many soldiers are not recognized for the sacrifices they have made to help us keep that freedom.

I appreciate you sharing this well written piece with us. It was a pleasure to read.
This well written piece showing your MC's memories are a great testimony to the reason for our freedom.

I was absolutely enraptured- descriptions are so rich and haunting, and what a message. Excellent.

I liked the way that you broke up the text and the action with the italics and bold print. Visually it worked. The ending came far too quickly - I wanted to know more about the jungle incident.

This was wonderfully written...well done.

Excellent suspense. What I took away from this was that every single memorial contains the memories of a soldier, a sailor, etc. If the tombstones could talk... Well done.

This was very different. The idea that memories survived at the memorial would be great to see portrayed in a movie. Well done.

This was a tenseful story. Well told and with great emotions. What sacrifice! And what a legacy! So many do not realize the sacrifice service men make...Well told....Helen
All I can add is amen to the lesson taught by this wonderfully written piece. Kudos to the author!
I couldn't have stopped reading this once I started, even if I'd wanted to. It's superb writing and wonderfully put together. Kudos!
