Let us not forget those who served. We were called to duty and we went to war. These are the stories of a few of those brave young men and women who fought in America’s most unpopular war. These are stories of times, events, and places that should never be forgotten. In war, the brain encircles and captures thoughts, sights, smells and sounds you can never get rid of. After the battle, the mind can shut down, and thoughts begin to smother the brain. If a veteran speaks, listen with open ears and an open mind. They all have something to say. If you are a brother or sister from Vietnam talk to someone, write down your thoughts, contact a brother or sister. If you can, don’t hesitate, Go To The Wall. These things have made me cry but they have brought back the smile that was once forgotten for so many years. Welcome home my brothers and sisters.

This monograph examines what is known about the major causes of adolescent morbidity and mortality with a view to assessing the adequacy of current efforts aimed at improving adolescent health and identifying further initiatives to improve our results. It begins with two assumptions: 1) that adolescent health encompasses far more than the absence of physical disease or disability, and 2) that it includes mental and social, as well as physical, well-being. This view of adolescent health implicitly calls for including both behavioral problems and mental disorders among the health community's concerns, a shift in focus that is increasingly endorsed by international and national organizations concerned with health issues.

The injustices of 1940s Jim Crow America are brought to life in this extraordinary blend of military and social history—a story that pays tribute to the valor of an all-black battalion whose crucial contributions at D-Day have gone unrecognized to this day. In the early hours of June 6, 1944, the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, a unit of African-American soldiers, landed on the beaches of France. Their orders were to man a curtain of armed balloons meant to deter enemy aircraft. One member of the 320th would be nominated for the Medal of Honor, an award he would never receive. The nation’s highest decoration was not given to black soldiers in World War II. Drawing on newly uncovered military records and dozens of original interviews with surviving members of the 320th and their families, Linda Hervieux tells the story of these heroic men charged with an extraordinary mission, whose contributions to one of the most celebrated events in modern history have been overlooked. Members of the 320th—Wilson Monk, a jack-of-all-trades from Atlantic City; Henry Parham, the son of sharecroppers from rural Virginia; William Dabney, an eager 17-year-old from Roanoke, Virginia; Samuel Mattison, a charming romantic from Columbus, Ohio—and thousands of other African Americans were sent abroad to fight for liberties denied them at home. In England and Europe, these soldiers discovered freedom they had not known in a homeland that treated them as second-class citizens—experiences they carried back to America, fueling the budding civil rights movement. In telling the story of the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, Hervieux offers a vivid account of the tension between racial politics and national service in wartime America, and a moving narrative of human bravery and perseverance in the face of injustice.

"I believe with all my heart that I must tell my story. From the moment that it all began on All Souls Day in November of 2008, I knew that God must have a purpose for permitting the Souls in Purgatory to visit me." These words of the author taken from the preface of this book are enough to capture the interest of anyone who believes in life after death. Our thinking about the afterlife is often influenced by what comes out of the movie industry and books of fiction. The intent is to entertain by scaring us. The story presented here offers a different perspective. From childhood, the author was open to the truth that Souls do seek our help to achieve the level of purification that the Catholic faith teaches is necessary to enter Heaven. Her journey that began with a frightening experience developed into a friendship that can inspire us to pay attention to why a place might be haunted and what we can do to assist the Souls of the Departed. This book is an easy read and very inspirational. It will change the way you look at life after death and at haunted places.

Since the 1860s, long before scientists put a name to Alzheimer’s disease, Canadian authors have been writing about age-related dementia. Originally, most of these stories were elegies, designed to offer readers consolation. Over time they evolved into narratives of gothic horror in which the illness is presented not as a normal consequence of aging but as an apocalyptic transformation. Weaving together scientific, cultural, and aesthetic depictions of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, Forgotten asserts that the only crisis associated with Canada’s aging population is one of misunderstanding. Revealing that turning illness into something monstrous can have dangerous consequences, Marlene Goldman seeks to identify the political and social influences that have led to the gothic disease model and its effects on society. Examining the works of authors such as Alice Munro, Michael Ignatieff, Jane Rule, and Caroline Adderson alongside news stories and medical and historical discussions of Alzheimer’s disease, Goldman provides an alternative, person-centred perspective to the experiences of aging and age-related dementia. Deconstructing the myths that have transformed cognitive decline into a corrosive fantasy, Forgotten establishes the pivotal role that fictional and non-fictional narratives play in cultural interpretations of disease.
