We're Finally OK

Image of We're Finally OK

In 1996, I wrote the poem, “We’re Finally OK” and dedicated it to all the men and women who, throughout the History of the United States, have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

This poem has been engraved on the “Clasping Hand” Statue at the “All Veterans’ Memorial” in Kokomo, Indiana.

I am a Vietnam era Veteran who served in the 78th Infantry Division in from 1968 to 1974. I was a drill instructor at the 78th ID Leadership Academy at Ft. Dix, NJ during 1971 to 1974 and retired as a Staff Sergeant.
