Swords to Plourghshares

One path to reintegration after deployment is through a garden. While working in my garden last fall I realized I hadn’t thought about Vietnam all day. The fresh air, sun and exercise were only part of the benefits. Providing a place where life could flourish had changed me. Planting a garden and looking forward to the harvest is so much more than surviving. It is so much more than healing. It is a renewal of life.
