Please take a few moments to read a heartfelt and touching poem written by 13-year old, Lauren Beebe of Centennial, Colorado. This poem was written as an assignment for school. It is said that each time she is given a writing assignment, Lauren writes with her Marine brother and extended Marine families in mind. You can clearly see this in the poem she wrote called, "The Man Who Didn't Know." Please click on the name of the poem to read it. Enjoy...
