A brother and sister find a very touching poem, presumably written by their father while he was serving in WWII. Sgt. James Lenihan came face to face with the enemy... a young German Soldier. Sgt. Lenihan shot and killed the soldier. The next day, he wrote his feelings in a poem. Lenihan talks about how he held the hand of the dying soldier as he drew his last breath... and the heartbreak it brought him.
The poem is published on the Defense Centers of Excellence website and has received dozens of blog responses from
