The official Sebastian Junger community
from my little pocket of upstate, New York, I hope for a safe and happy holiday season to all those soldiers in far flung places of the globe on active duty and all those veterans who've lived to tell the tale and the people who continue to care and support for them during periods of despair and uncertainty. May all find it in their heart to lay down their arms during a season whose true meaning is about the dawn of a new kind of brotherhood (or sisterhood) wiithout war. May the leaders of this world and those whose faces remain hidden but who call the shots make a more brutal commitment in the new year to finding alternatives to bloodshed.
happy holidays to the troops!
