12. It's no big deal, really

I agreed with the columnist in some ways, but I wanted to point out the importance of outreach to vets to help them face the things they were suppressing and process them.

Later, I wound up speaking with that columnist (Colman McCarthy) on the same stage at a peace conference.

To share what I wrote I'd have to re-type the whole thing. But I liked how the Washington Post illustrated my feelings about Vietnam vets finally being able to truly "come home": with a drawing of a paratrooper descending in midair.
