MAMF Special Projects Writer Caroline LeBlanc is seeking stories for:
“SHOUT: Sharing Our Truth: An Anthology of Writings by LGBT Veterans and Family Members of the U.S. Military Services”
This anthology seeks first-hand experiences—good, bad, and in between—as an LGBT veteran or family member, during and/or after military service. Our goal is to create a book that will allow you to tell parts of your story that will also be helpful for others to read—others who live or want to understand the LGBT veteran experience. The last chapter of the book will list resources available to LGBT veterans.

Changing planes here on route to Venice to Pisa. The visit to Livorno (Pisa) school went very well—the teachers even let me play with their basketball team! Ran into a few supply problems, but, as anticipated, nothing serious. Fuel costs in Italy are fantastic. Can you imagine $1.85 for a gallon of regular gas? Too bad school busses don’t run on wine.
