Nostalgic thoughts about decorations received in military service

Decorations

 

Colorful depiction of ten years of service.

Three rows of code with no idea what their mean is.

Nonverbal statement declaring "I was there. "

Topics for discussions best had over beer. 

Vivid splash on a background of green. 

Depicting horrors that were felt, heard, and seen

Cryptic references generate a grand child's query. 

"I don't like to talk about it. "Is grandpa's favorite parry

A handful of stories pinned to his chest

Grandchildren debate over which one is best.
