Poetry by Gavin Campbell
Too often we forget that the real life definition of war is "men fighting, to the death, over the disagreement of leaders." I am an Iraqi vet and I knew all along that the Iraqi soldiers were like me and my comrades, just had different uniforms, languages and orders.
I have seen too many poems that address the fight to save a soldier, and they address what the medics or comrades go through. I always wondered what the fatally wounded warrior goes through.
