Billy Pilgrim

An Individual who many thought were odd

A man who served in the second world war

A man who stated that he was abducted by aliens

But did you know that this man fought in the war?

Was imprisoned?

outcome of mental stress?

He states that he time travels

But could it really be because he fought

And it had damaged him?

What is a war hero?

A war hero is an individual who fought for his country with pride

And Billy fought for his country

Although his outcome was unfortunate
