Saigon, WWII

Saigon, June 16, 1944
Marines & the Navaho
set foot on the shore.
A Pacific campaign
for a foot in the door
blood in the sand
in the second world war.

Windtalkers, code talkers,
Navaho all
rose up with Great Spirit
and answered the call -
leaving desert, and home,
and family clan -
of a nation that conquered
their ancestral land.
