Excerpt from “Taking Back the River.

“For years I carried around anger, guilt, and grief as a result of what I’d experienced being a soldier’s wife during the Vietnam War. After writing my story, I was able to release those feelings and to find some peace.”  Sheila O’Quirke, author of We’re in the Army Now

I was 35 years old when I began to ponder questions like: “Who am I and what’s my purpose on this planet?” Up until then my identity was dependent on who I was in relation to everyone else. For years I struggled with demons. There were several suicide attempts; I saw death as the only way out of a miserable existence.

But at the age of 35 I recognized in me a thirst I’d never known; the need for a spiritual connection and a reason to live. The answers didn’t come overnight; in fact, I found that for me, the long road was the shortest way home. I’d invested so much time and energy into hating myself that it was hard to give that up. It kept me on a merry-go-round of addiction and recovery, spanning several years. But as I began the difficult work of grieving and facing myself, I was able to see the value-the gift-in having had such a rough life.

The Museum of the American Military Family is compiling stories for a book reflecting on war…

Attention New Mexicans, who are serving in the military, are military veterans, are members of a military family, and would like to write about your experience in that capacity…

Paul Zolbrod, Writer-in-Residence for the Albuquerque-based Museum of the American Military Family is seeking stories for its anthology “From the Front Line to the Home Front: New Mexicans Reflect on War.”

This anthology will include first-hand stories from all perspectives—service members, family members and friends who share their perspectives and experiences. Submissions can be about the recent Middle East campaigns, Vietnam, the Korean War era or World War II—and everything in between. All branches and ranks of the military should be represented.

How you can contribute:

Your story can be as long or as short as you choose. Just make it heartfelt, honest and interesting. We are looking for stories of trial and triumph and loss, stories that demonstrate the warmth and humor of military family life along with its inevitable tensions, offbeat stories that illustrate the variety that accompanies military life in war times–in other words– anything you want to tell of.

You don’t have to consider yourself an accomplished writer to participate. We will provide editorial services to sharpen your contribution.

The book will be arranged by stories of:

Pre-deployment,
Deployment
Post-deployment
Legacy & Aftermath
For more information or to submit a story, please e-mail Writer-in-Residence Paul Zolbrod at mamfwriter@gmail.com.

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2016. Tentative publication date is scheduled for the fall. All stories become part of the Museum of the American Military Family Special Collection Library.
