I was no there, by a fluke of time.
I was not called.
I was left home to sit and protest the war action.

But, your heroic actions in that war have never left me.

Or you, as this song says. A hole in daddy's arm.....

I have known that pain. It left me 25 years or more ago.

What I suffered sitting here could not compare to what you did there.

Just let it be known, that some here never left your side.
And welcomed you home for your heroic efforts.

I know that might sound shallow, not having gone........but at least I did not diss you on your return.

Perhaps you might forgive me for all the protest songs we sang on your behalf.....

Yeah, we did give a shit here back home.....at least some of us who had a freakin' clue.
