The Iraq War wasn’t the first time personalities and patriotism clashed. Emotional wounds from past wars are slow to heal.
Friend Marsha Qualey authored an inspirational novel, Hometown. She crafted the tale of a Vietnam draft resister who stayed in Canada, but whose son faced a town’s long-simmering resentment over his father’s past choices during the eve of the Persian Gulf War in 1991.
I liked Marsha’s book. I hope you will, too.
