Jet Injectors = Jet Infectors

When God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
He put his arms around you
and whispered come to Me.
He didn’t like what you went through
and He gave you rest.
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.
And when we saw you sleeping
so peaceful and free from pain
we wouldn’t wish you back
to suffer that again.
Today we say goodbye
and as you take your final rest
that garden must be beautiful
because you are one of the best.

Jet Injectors = Jet Infectors

The majority of veterans afflicted with hepatitis C are from the Vietnam war era.

For those mighty men and women of valor who died as the result of the consequences of their service…we remember you.

In October 2015, I had the privilege of paying homage to the In Memoriam Plaque at the Vietnam War Memorial in DC. The opportunity allowed me to place the flower shown in memory of my father.
