Selected works from "When You Can't See The Trees For The Wood" and "Swimming With A School Of Fish On 34th Street", together with new poems and prose about veterans, the culture and counterculture surrounding military conflicts in this world. War touches everyone--on the battlefieldsand perimeters, at sea and in the air; and back home, wherever we come from, no matter how far removed we might think we are. War touches all of us. The vets who lost life and limb, and all who brought back depression and addiction. And children of the Cold War, haunted by the swift annihilation of ballistic missiles. And to everyone traumatized by assassinations and inner city riots of the Vietnam Era. The attacks on Oklahoma City, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Friends and families of all those who never came home. "Our Veteran Daze" is about all of them. All of us.
