Gregory Ross, Navy veteran of the American War in Vietnam, was on a “floating gun line” that shelled the coast of Vietnam, “sometimes 24-7.”  He eventually found “absolution” for his complicity in what he came to view as an immoral war through caring for others, through writing and reciting poetry of peace, and through activism in Veterans for Peace.

Vietnam, 1969: "On the floating artillery line."

"Poetry of atonement."

"I just don't think war is a good idea."
