Touching Light Display in Stanfield, Oregon Honors Soldiers [VIDEO]

Big thanks to Heather Eldred who shared a touching video with us this morning. There’s a homeowner in Stanfield, Oregon, who created a truly unique light display in his yard. When you pull up in front of the house you can tune your radio to a short-range frequently and hear a poem that goes along with the lights.

His name is David Pichcuskie and he’s got five miles of extension chord running around his yard powering over 150,000 lights.

 

If you like the poem, there’s a fascinating story to it.

It was written by Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt in 1986. It was published in a Marine magazine in 1991. In 1993 a soldier in Korea sent it home to a Ft. Leavenworth newspaper saying HE wrote it!
