Our Brother Joe is Dead.

Most boys didn’t get to come back from the war walking on their own two feet. Some of them came back, but they were mostly wrecks. But, most of them came back in boxes if they came at all. But not Joe. Joe came back into town with a smile on his face. He had gotten a lift from the station and the driver had dropped him off right at the edge of town. When we first spotted him, he was adjusting his uniform getting ready to make his big entrance.
