Very well-written and great job exposing the horror and triumph in conflicts.

Everyone has STEPPED up their game this week. This one is no exception!

May God bless and keep you writing such good things.

This was extremely well-written. One of the overlooked casualties of war is the destruction of the land. What a moving tribute to the human spirit at the end to have the former enemies become friends. I'd like to read the rest of Rod Tierney's diary.
War stories are often so sad, but this one left me feeling hopeful that one day we will all live in peace with each other. Good job.
I really love this story and the picture of these two elderly men bringing closure to this war story with their
budding friendship...just beautiful.
Loved your use of first person perspective. Felt like a scene out of "Saving Private Ryan". Very well done!
