Last week, I linked to Teresa Fazio’s op-ed on Marines United and mentioned what a fan of her short stories I am. I was tickled yesterday to see that her story “Float” went live on the Consequence Magazine website. It’s a great magazine with both nicely presented online content and a print issue, all devoted to myriad investigations of war.

Jesse Goolsby selected it as the 2016 fiction contest winner. I strongly recommend you check it out, especially if you’re interested in seeing how women veteran writers are crafting narratives regarding their time in the service:  Float

For your Sunday enjoyment, and only a little because I appear to have a man-crush on Brian, check out the op-ed that ran two weeks ago in the New York Times. I’m not going to lie: it hit home for me, since it addresses those of us who have stayed in and continue to go to and return from war.
