The War of Kalakaua Boulevard. Roger Goss guffawed – correctly and loudly – when the backfire from a city bus opposite The International Marketplace starring later that night the musical stylings of Don Ho, when I picked myself up out of the gutter – thankfully whey made us switch to civilian garb before leaving Danang Air Force Base on that five-day I&I (officially called R&R). I know what the old vet means: which war, indeed? This Bruce C. Jewett, USMC Lance Corporal, one each, packs a few universes into each line of this gem.

thanks for your service
the old veteran smiles back
asks which war was it
