Master Photographer Chronicles Effects of Iraqi War

"Inside Geographic, (p. 160)" National Geographic's monthly informational and promotional segment features Eugene Richards. His poignant photos of the abandoned houses on the plains of North Dakota inspired me to write a poem but he is also the author of War Is Personal, "a series of phtographic and written essays about people--in and out of the military--whose lives have been changed by the war in Iraq." Of course, I knew that those who visit this blog would want to know about it. He is using a $50,000 grant for photography from National Geographic to write it.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson wrote the foreword for Eric Dinyer's book of patriotic quotations, Support Our Troops, published by Andrews McMeel. Part of the proceeds for the book benefit Fisher House. Her chapbook of poetry won the Military Writers Society of America's award of excellence.
