Nov. 25, 1977
The William Buckley column on my war activities has revived some of the trauma I felt in the war.
And so I ended my personal war without any sense of victory but weighed down by the tears that could not flow.
My hope was that I could heal the scars of my spirit, more galling than those of my body.
My right abdominal muscles were cut through never to grow back and my left knee was mangled.
But the injury of my soul was deeper and despairing.
