Unwritten Truce: The Armed Forces and American Social Justice by Troy E. Mosley

Unwritten Truce by Troy MoselyThe struggle for equality is as old as the nation itself. Each marginalized demographic has fought to achieve the opportunity for self-determination as guaranteed by the Constitution. The American military has contributed as much to the notion of American exceptionalism as American leaders of industry and American artisans.

Since 1776 the U.S. military has established a proven track record of winning America’s wars- the standard by which all militaries are judged. When called upon to do the nation’s bidding in combat or on field of competition, the U.S. military
has been second to none. One of the unique aspects of combat is that rarely are Americans more equal than when thrust into harm’s way. It has been said, “There are no atheists in fox holes.” Similarly, racism, sexism, and homophobia quickly go by the wayside when things get real. Yet for the 19th century and half of the 20th century,

America’s military policies regarding the use of manpower can best be described as an awkward attempt to balance the requirement to win America’s wars with the desire to support the socio-political caste system that relegated black Americans to second-class citizenship. President Harry Truman signed Executive Order 9981 on July 26, 1948 and cast the U.S. military as an unlikely champion for inclusion and equality of opportunity. Today, some of this progress is under direct threat. For as far as America has come, we still have work to do for Truman’s vision of equality of opportunity to become a reality for all Americans. Join me in this thought-provoking narrative that honors the brave American military pioneers, black, white, brown, male and female, straight and gay.

Join the conversation that challenges us all to continue the push for a better expression of America.

Angel on My Wing by Richard Lewis

Richard Lewis An Odyssey of Flying Combat with the 493rd Bomb Group, 8th Air Force in 1944

World War II was the ultimate experience for all those who participated in it. Many of my friends have asked me through the years to put on paper what I experienced as a bomber pilot in the Eighth Air Force flying out of England. I do not think that the missions I flew were extraordinary in any way but at the age of 87 I thought if I was ever going to do this I must get on with the program. I hope you enjoy and understand my own lingo, as I am by no means a professional writer. I only wish that I had started earlier and could have taken advantage of the memories of my many friends who are no longer with us. As many have said before me, it was the greatest time of my life but given the choice I would never do it again.

Life’s Bouquet by Laura Louise Boilini

Life's Bouquet Who in your life has fostered your own sense of purpose, helped you see what you could do and be? Here is my story of these people, teachers in many forms, who have impacted my life with their indelible presence. I invite you to share in my personal recollections and to learn about those who have touched me with their own unique wisdom.

Life’s bouquet is about the beauty of humanity and lessons learned through experience. I have used the analogy of a garden, and have spoken of those who have inspired me as flowers and weeds. Flowers, we often think of as intended, glorious and striking in vivid color. Weeds are the surprises of life, the random whims of nature. I recognize through my own journey of growth, that one needs both flowers and weeds to go forward with a sense of confidence. In Life’s Bouquet I have woven these manifestations of nature within the stories of my past and future. I have shared my stories of growth, of self-doubt and self-discovery.

Perhaps you can find a part of yourself in my stories, and you can reflect upon those who have made an impact in your life. Life’s Bouquet is one person’s story, my story, about how important it is to appreciate the “flowers,” embrace the “weeds,” and enjoy the possibilities that beckon.

Of Time and Honored Distance by William M Mahoney

Of Time and honored distance by Willam Matt Mahoney

Have you ever placed your thoughts on paper and looking back, often wondered where these thoughts originated? Or perhaps a memory came to mind which fueled a feeling that inspired either joy or sadness and perhaps faded into reality? All the things that happen to us as years pass are stored in a mental “Treasure Chest” that remains sealed until we choose to open it.

“of Time and Honored Distance” is a reflection of many years of gathering these thoughts and the transfer of them into the written word.
