In appreciation for all of our veterans, a poem from I'm Still Breathing, So It's a Good Day by Rev. Eric Verhulst. Eric is a retired Navy chaplain and current Veterans Affairs chaplain.
Gordon first met John a few months ago, when John was dying of cancer. John was a crusty and profane old man, a veteran and a recovering alcoholic, uninterested in God or religion. As a hospice chaplain, Gordon often met patients like John, and most of the time they wanted nothing to do with chaplains. John was different, though.
