Leaving after a decade past
Blood spilled, never mind the sweat
And now what have we to show
Stories of war, countless told
Beyond those trivial stories though
What arises from packed earth and snow
A legacy of hopeless war
Broken now or forevermore?

—Maj. Dustin E. Lawrence
2-503rd Infantry, Wardak Province
Afghanistan, 2013
