A file of soldiers on a routine jungle patrol. Most soldiers wore towels around their necks, like this one did, to help combat sweat in the jungle heat. Names, date, and location unknown.

Each day of war takes us farther from all we could hope to be or do. We gain nothing but heartbreak, and lose everything we cherish. Our lives erode and diminish, our children see no future except a calendar of anguish and death. Our only hope for tomorrow is for peace now.

Lloyd Alexander
