Letter to Saint Peter
Let them in, Peter, they are very tired,
Give them the couches where the angels sleep.
Let them wake whole again to new dawns fired
With sun, not war, and may their peace be deep;
Remember where the broken bodies lie...
And give them things they like. Let them make noise,
God knows how young they were to have to die!
Give swing bands, not gold harps, to these our boys.
Let them love, Peter - they had no time -
Girls as sweet as meadow wind with flowering hair...
They should have trees and bird songs, hills to climb,
The taste of summer in a ripened pear. Tell them
How they are missed. Say not to fear; it's going
to be all right with us down here.

The Friends of the Central Highlands Viet Nam, Inc. is of the belief that through education there is hope for a better future. Through education, the doors of opportunity can be opened for those who dare to walk through. It is also education that will allow dreams to come true and maybe, just maybe, we can affect lives in a positive and constructive way.Since our discharge from the army, we all feel that we have become different. We feel that service in the occupied territories and the incidents we faced have distorted and harmed the moral values on which we grew up.
