Nice. Thank you for posting.

On similar note, check out this site, a PBS site detailing the Operation Homecoming veterans' writing project. If you only have time to check out a little of it, you must see these two clips.

"Men in Black" and "Aftermath."

The writing was compiled into an anthology.
