the war inside- terrance heath
"Years later, when my parents came to visit me in Washington, D.C., I took my Dad to the Korean and Vietnam war memorials. I watched him walk the length of the Vietnam memorial, stopping at the names of the men he'd known. I witness his silent tears at each stop. Yet, we never talked about his experience. To this day I don't know what he saw, or what he brought home from those wars.
I think that's because he'd brought home his experiences from the war, but wanted to keep the war — the war inside — out of his home."
