About the Author
My father returned from WWII with emotional scars that never healed and kept him from his children for their entire lives. Several uncles suffered many affects from the Korean war. My high school friends died in Vietnam and my husband returned with physical and emotional wounds and agent orange affects that continued to haunt him until he died at age 32.Though I was born after WWII, that and the wars since have brought me to many funerals and left me with only memories of those I knew and loved, some still alive, but unable to live.

Waves of White Crosses (2/15/07)
They were my friends, lovers, sisters and brothers
But now their names are etched on walls, plaques and waves of white crosses.
