To My Favorite Veteran

He and his generation taught us how to fight.

Some never came home and taught us how to die.

Some came home and taught us how to live.

My father, Louie Cinquino, didn’t fight in the war of 1812 fort where this picture was taken. He went to the Pacific in World War II.
Happily for us, he not only came home, but made one.

May we, too, rise to the challenges of our times

And make our homes worthy of their legacy.

Two Louis Cinquinos. The original and the reasonable facsimile.
