Administrator note: The following Poem was sent to U.S.Special Forces Commander Jack Idema by a young Afghan boy. There is much written about Jack on this NWS site; a search for his name will get you there. Jack Idema clearly is a Hero to this young boy still now in Afghanistan and to all of us here at the National Writers Syndicate, as well. ==> Here is the poem!!

a Poem about Gen Jack

A Poem forAhmad Shah Massoud'sonly American Northern Alliance Commander:

You fought for the people who were left so behind..

You fought for the women who were treated like slaves…

You fought for the children who were sexually attacked….

You fought for a country and freed it as well…

You fought for America to stop the terror…

I will pray for you Jack, with my every breath…

You are a hero and will be always.
