Veteran Sorrow, by Mark Tulin/POM


Veteran’s Day poem.

Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. Sorrow indeed. My son in law is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan. He is a lovely young man and a great hands on Dad to the grandkids. But his time in service left him with injuries to his body that will be with him for life

    • Sorry to hear about his injuries, Anne. Afghanistan must have been brutal. I can’t imagine what these soldiers went through.

      • I think it was awful. He now finds it hard to see that it has been for nothing as the Taliban are backing power. But fortunately he is in good shape apart from the back injury that bothers him but does not prevent him from picking up our Grandson and bouncing him around.

      • Sounds like a great dad. 👍
