New Poem: "Operation Unified Assistance"
"Operation Unified Assistance" is the next installment in my poetic memoir, A Wave of Poetry. Operation Unified Assistance was the official name given by the military for its tsunami relief efforts. Ironically, the name was given on the day that my role in the operation more or less officially ended--the day we were ordered to leave the theater and turn over relief operations to the Indonesians, UN, and NGOs.
