Pierce, Jim: dawn. v1.2 8 MAR 2010

I fixed one part of the poem. the 'big boys' just before the line about the battleships, shouldn't have been there.

A poem I wrote for Veterans' Day, in 2003. I am the person who wrote it and I am the copyright holder, but I give permission for this work to be downloaded by anyone anywhere for free. I prefer you download it from here so I can see how many are interested in my work.

I'm not sure it could be called Action. Maybe History is a better type. I am uncertain which to use.

I hope you enjoy it.

Most of the time when I drop references into a poem, I don't explain them.

But here is one:

The Big Boys and Little Boys are the aircraft carriers and their escort destroyers and destroyer escorts off Leyte in 1944 when the Japense Fleet came over the horizon. DD and DE. DD means destoyer, and DE means Destroyer Escorts. The DDs are larger with 5 inch guns, the DEs have 3 inch guns.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Leyte_Gulf

They were there to provide air suppport for the infantry. They didn't have the equipment, nor training, to take on another fleet. The DDs and DEs were there to protect the air craftcarriers from submarines, and attacking aircraft.

Their valor convinced the Japanese Admiral in charge of that Japanese Fleet he had encountered Halsey's main fleet.

Oh, I called it 'dawn' instead of 'Dawn' because I felt I should understate my poem, and let the events speak for themselves.
