9781555717421: Once Upon a War: The Diary of a Waiting Wife

Once Upon a War: The Diary of a Waiting Wife, is a heartfelt memoir that relates how the author's family and many others survived separation from loved ones during the Vietnam War. Together, they awaited their husbands' return in Schilling Manor, a residence designated especially for the families, located in Salina, Kansas. There has never been another community like it. Diary entries and letters describe life at home and in the war zone, as well as political turmoil during an era when denigration of the military was in style.

Book Description L R Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When Joan Diehl s Air Force husband, Glen, was ordered to Vietnam in 1968, he helped her and their five young children move from Bryan, Texas, to Salina, Kansas. There, she joined other waiting wives in Schilling Manor, named after an Air Force base that had closed. Part of the former base had been converted into residences for families of military personnel serving in South Vietnam. During Glen s absence, Joan was sustained by this remarkable community. Once Upon a War is Joan Diehl s heartfelt memoir of her life in Schilling Manor. Through excerpts from her journal, letters to and from her husband, and newspaper articles, she provides a glimpse of life at home, in the war zone, and on the streets of America, where political turmoil and denigration of the military ran rampant.
