Military Experience and the Arts is proud to announce the release of As You Were: The Military Review, Vol. 13. This edition contains over thirty works in literary fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry.

As You Were, Vol. 13 brings diverse and illuminating perspectives to the canon of military-themed literature. Included in this volume are voices from veterans of the Army, Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, and the Marine Corps, ranging from Vietnam to the Global War on Terror. There are also mothers grappling with their children’s decision to join the service, sisters saying goodbye to one another, a Russian linguist in Army intelligence translating chilling recordings, and a VA psychologist bridging the divide in counseling, among many others.

There are some seasoned writers included in this volume, and there are a great many who are publishing for the first time. Several have worked one-on-one with MEA editors to polish, revise, or rewrite their works in a process that builds skills in creative expression and brings readers excellent works. Through these stories and poems, readers can learn, empathize, and perhaps feel more connected with the greater military community.

This Veterans Day, honor veterans and their families and friends by taking a look at As You Were: The Military Review, Vol. 13. Thank you!
