“I saw Vietnam for real today” (8)

(8th in a series of posts on Memorial Day)

Peter Crownfield is officially retired but spends most of his time working with students in his role as internship coordinator for the Alliance for Sustainable Communities–Lehigh Valley.


Here’s a poem my son and I published back in 1995 (in a journal called Echoes Magazine, a total of 17 issues from 1993 to 1997), written by a young college student, Lisa J. Parker — one of several of her poems we published. She went on to win a coveted spot in Penn State’s graduate program for writers (she was 1 of only 2 poets admitted that year) and has since published 1 or 2 books of her poetry. The drawing is by Ferrilyn Sourdiffe, which we used both with the poem and as the cover.
