“To A War Ace”.
“You had a job to do – you did it well.
We were all as proud as you when you came home sporting your medals on your chest.
I had a job to do – I did it well.
I never received any medals, but I could handle screw-drivers and wrenches with the best of them.
Aren’t you glad I did?”
-Ethel Wood (excerpt from her poem)
