Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace available in Paperback
This poignant collection, compiled from Kingston's healing workshops, contains the distilled wisdom of survivors of five wars, including combatants, war widows, spouses, children, conscientious objectors, and veterans of domestic abuse. Vetrans of War, Vetrans of Peace includes accounts from people that grew up in military families, served as medics in the thick of war, or came home to homelessness. All struggle with trauma - PTSD, substance abuse, and other consequences of war and violence. Through their extraordinary writings, readers witness worlds coming apart and being put back together again through liberating insight, community, and the deep transformation that is possible only by coming to grips with the past.

I enjoyed reading the stories that talk about their experiences at war.
Memorial Day! Thank you to all the troops that sacrifice their lives for us all!
The book was disappointing to me being a 68/69 viet-nam vet infantryman. There were how-ever some good stories about their war time exsperences, But it seems like it was just a book to get some poetry printed...'Not what I was expecting'
