Army Mom’s Safe Haven

MEDIC AND NURSE...

the words themselves, poetic verse.
Medic moving quickly;
nurse dispensing balm,
Morphine, smiles and
Lifesavers...

So went Vietnam.

I have read in a few places that the medics would sometimes give the wounded Lifesavers if they had nothing else much to comfort them... that's the reference to the Lifesavers in the poem
