Favorite Quote:
She believed she could, so she did. (Unknown)

Yellow ribbons in the house
A flag cast at half-mast
Army tags instead of the stocking
One cold side of a big bed.

Tears against a face
A note in a hand
The door closing softly
Where an Army Man will never more stand.

The author's comments:
I just have really strong feelings when it comes to the army, I guess. I am an army brat.
