In Honor of All Veterans

Veterans Day Poster 1995

Editor’s note: The image of this old man’s hand is especially dear to me because of the elderly veterans whom I’ve known in my work as a home-care companion. The official 1995 Veterans Day poster marks the 50th anniversary of World War II. You can see more posters in this series at the Veterans Day Poster Gallery. — MAB

    1. Thanks, Jason, for the humor and pathos of your poem. I especially enjoyed the lines “Through sudden cricks and eerie creaks/ Our settling house at nighttime speaks, I’m scared/ While you’re away.”
