50 poems for an American soldier coming home: From OK to WIA to PTSD to KIA

by RICHARD L MUEHLBERG

NOTE: I served in the National Guard between Vietnam and Iraq. I served as an artillery FIST officer then an armored cavalry platoon leader. I didn’t see combat, so I have limited experience. I wrote these poems out of respect for combat veterans. This is a collection of soldiers’ lives from a soldier’s view. A soldier’s life is a bond of shared stress, self-sacrifice and common survival. These fifty poems are fifty stories of American soldiers coming home, from soldiers who are husbands who are comforted by their wives to soldiers who are wives who are comforted by their husbands, to soldier-amputees who climb mountains, to soldiers who come home in caskets honored by soldiers still standing who know that bond that makes a soldier, to soldiers with looped nightmares replaying what did happen and could have happened, to soldiers who wish they could bring all their brothers and sisters together from their families of “here” and their families of “there”, to soldiers who go back to serve another tour.
