Buck Sergeant's coming home.

From THE ENEMY OF THE GOOD: A Buck Sargent Epilogue.

The loss of a good man can make one question the why
Spurring a search for the answer for what did they die?
On behalf of ungrateful nations have our kin repeatedly bled
Over countless generations spanning acreage of war dead,
But for those who have fought for it hath freedom truly been tasted,
On account of what otherwise would most assuredly amount
Mere killing time well wasted.

Have a safe journey home, Buck Sergeant.
