From the Frontlines to the Homefront

Unlike World War II, when the war effort was shared by all, the role of the entire family in a military deployment has been overlooked. Yet moms and dads serve as well, as do husbands and wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, along with other loved ones. Military service is a family affair as the stories and poems in this volume testify. Written by New Mexican veterans as well as family members and others with close connections to someone in uniform, each reflection contributes to a rich understanding of what it means to contribute to military life by those out of uniform as well as those who wear one.

NOT FOR RETAIL SALE-The museum uses this text for discussion/reading groups throughout the state of New Mexico

“Battle Songs”

Written by our Writer-in-Residence, Paul Zobrod

 “Sing. Sing Battle Songs!” So begins a story that looks back at a long-forgotten war now worth revisiting. Four young are men are drafted in the early 1950’s from the coal fields and farms of Western Pennsylvania to join a struggle they do not understand in country they know nothing about. Taking with them a legacy of violence that prevails to this day, each in his own way must confront the absurdity of battle within the framework of his own identity and the life he leaves behind. Only in their loyalty to each other can they find meaning in a bitter conflict that remains unresolved more than half a century later. Told from four different perspectives, this novel contrasts the horrors of the battlefield with accounts of mid twentieth-century life in an overlooked part of America—a world far different on the surface but deeply similar to the one young people know in today’s strife-torn opening years of the twenty-first century. To order, click here
