A G.I. in America: The Government Issue Chronicles and Selected Poems
"Poetry is meant to summarize universal feelings. Doug Rawlings' poems capture beautifully the revulsion to war and the spirit of those who work for peace." — Ann Wright, US Army Reserve Colonel (ret) and former US diplomat.
"Rawlings has written powerfully about the different facets of the veteran’s experience. His poems will be cathartic to some and revealing to others. Perhaps they will be most revealing to those who hang around veterans and who have trouble understanding." — Dr. Jon Oplinger, Vietnam Veteran and author of Quang Tri Cadence: Memoir of a Rifle Platoon Leader in the Mountains of Vietnam.
"Doug’s poems communicate strength and clarity, pain, moral injury, gentleness, struggle. And always honesty. These poems are faithful companions to anyone who has been part of the veterans’ experience — and in one way or another, that’s every one of us." — Chuck Searcy, Vietnam Veteran and Director of Project RENEW.
