  • He was about to fight another man's war. Not knowing why he had to, but he signed up.
    While he was preparing to leave for the War, this mother gave him the name, "Quits on Him."
    Because when he got to Japan, the enemy would quit on him.

    He jumped on the train, with all the other Lakota boys.
    Then he said goodbye to his loving mother, and the train departed to Fort. Snelling.
    After his training, he was sent across seas to Fight the Japanese. To fight for the White man's mistakes. After awhile, they quit on him. He sighed with relief, he was able to come home safe and sound from a few long years of fighting, fighting for his brothers and sisters back home. He was fighting for his brothers in the same bunker as him. He was fighting for those who came before him, but never was able to return. He was fighting for those who left their children and loving families. Not only did he fight for the white man, he fought for his beliefs and for the survival of his language and traditions.He left a young Lakota boy, but came back a Warrior. He was a Lakota Warrior.
