Hemmingway was a war correspondent attached to the 22nd Infantry Regiment when he wrote this poem for the 33,000 Americans lost between September 19th,1944 and February 10, 1945....33,000 in 5 months....(We lost 58,228 soldiers during the entire vietna...m war from 1959-1975) The forest covers over barely 50 square miles, east of the Belgian–German border, and had no significant value to the completion of the war, which led to it being called "The Death factory".

I know, I know, I promised I'd be more regular in my posts, but school started, soccer practice and football practice geared up, and then Scouting ensued, so time has been at a premium as of late. I will, however, finish my report on Lake Powhatan, and will cross post things from FaceBook and Twitter too. If you want to follow me on Twitter, Here's my profile.Likewise, heres my faceBook profile. I try to keep up with everything, but facebook seems to be the big one. twitter, not as much, but I do have a whole lot of Catholic followers, and Outdoor/scouting followers there, so it may be worth your while to check out.
Anyway, Autumn is almost upon us, and with it's arrival, I find myself stirred to write more, so hopefully you'll see more of my ugly mug around here!!
