I submitted this to The Journal of Military Experience, a Veteran's project out of Eastern Kentucky University and it has been accepted for an upcoming volume. I have begun working with the Poetry Editor and I am very excited. The poem may change some, I am still refining it for better flow. I am so honored that my first published poem will be in honor of my Dad.
The jacket was worn by my Dad Marvin Corner. He served honorably for over 33 years. He recently passed away and this is my tribute to him.
If you have a chance to thank a Vet for the sacrifices they make, please do so.
My Dad supported his local American Legion hall, and other Vet groups.
Is there something you can do to help out?
