In Upcoming "Military Experience & the Arts"

Although I have traveled far and wide, I am never far from the Monongahela Valley. I am a second-generation American; the Old Countries are never far from me. The wood, and hills, rivers and “cricks” have given me an appreciation for nature.

     There was a time when I thought the two were incompatible. How that has changed over the years.  As a Retired (Army) Reservist with Veteran Status, I find myself culling poetry out of those nearly 23 years I spend as a National Guardsman, Reservist, and when mobilized, Active Duty Soldier.

     This publication was kind enough to accept a poem I wrote for their February-March online publication, which will feature only poetry. More when it comes out!
