|Bio and Links|
I am a Son of the South (hometown in northeastern Florida; college educated in southwestern Missouri), career soldier (retired as a LTC in 2008 with over 29 years, and a subsequent Retiree Recall put me over 31) who was originally trained in the USMCR (M Company (-), 3/24 Marines, 4th MAR DIV, Semper Fi!) with combat in OPN Urgent Fury (Grenada), El Salvador, OPN Desert Storm (Persian Gulf War), OPN Joint Guard (Bosnia), OPN Enduring Freedom (Global War on Terror), & OPN Iraqi Freedom (Global War on Terror/ Global Contingency Opn - whatever "politically correct" term the liberals invent for it in the next 4 years; still the same fight, same enemy). I also served in OPN Noble Eagle (Global War on Terror/ USA Homeland defense), OPN Volcano (disaster relief, Armero, Columbia), and USA disaster relief during Hurricanes Hugo, Opal, Frances, and TS Alberto in Florida. I have been married since 1989 and have 1 son. I am also a careerist with the Florida Department of Corrections and have worked criminal justice since 1986. In my youth, I attained Eagle Scout with the BSA and was a Triple Letterman (football/ wrestling/ track) in High School with my greatest achievement in athletics being amateur boxing (72-3, 55 KOs). I also served 2 years with the FFA Chapter during high school. Thanks to all of you who have visited and left flowers/ comments on my memorials, and especially those who have sponsored them.|

|Dr Mary Ann Wimsatt||WILFRED OWEN|
Mr Barzelogna, I am glad that you admire Wilfred Owen's poetry and that you frequently post messages to him at Find a Grave. But I wonder if you know that Owen did not remain a Christian once he experienced the numerous indescribable horrors of war. The fact does not abrogate the messages you post to him, but it does make them ironic, at least in my view.
I taught one or another of Owen's poems for years in routine literature classes, but it was not until I designed and taught "Documentary Film and Literature of Modern War" for an Honors Program that I came fully to know his remarkable body of work. HENCE I ASK, HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT IT? DID YOU STUDY IT IN SCHOOL? OR DID YOU COME UPON IT BY OTHER MEANS?
