In August of 2014, we met Vietnam Veteran Don Bowman in Columbus, Georgia. He served 20 years as an Army Airborne Ranger. A few weeks ago, he revealed to Stacy he is a poet and has written about military members’ experiences which are as far back as World War I. He has given us the gracious permission to share with y’all a few of his poetry. We simply ask for viewers to not share without permission.
Thank you, Don, for sharing your talent with the Veterans Portrait Project.
