I’m taking a break, for the moment, from my normal everyday routines, to honor those that have been brave enough to serve for our freedoms and our often self-centered selves.
Words are hard to come by for this poet, so I will share with you a poem written by a dear friend and fellow poet, the late Joseph Porter, aka the Mountain Man. He asked me years ago to record this poem as a gift to him, and I was honored to do so! This is Old Pilots…
In loving memory to Joe Porter, Dan McHenry Hickey (Poet Laureate, Madison GA) and Robert White. Salute~
To my daddy, John, and my brother, Mark; i love you and thank you dearly. To Bill Barrington, granddad to my daughter-in-law, hugs.
To my new friend Ed Clary WWII Veteran from Bradenton, FL
And the countless others that have served with all they have/had!
(sorry if i didn’t mention you by name, there are so many to thank)
