I found this video yesterday on YouTube and thought I would post the link. It discusses the enduring poverty in Appalachia, more specifically, that in Eastern Kentucky. I was very surprised to see that it included interviews from my home county and with some people I actually know. Although the video 'narrated' the poverty well, neither Diane Sawyer (the lead on this project) nor 20/20 discussed the bigger issues of why the War on Poverty had failed so miserably. Perhaps in a follow-up segment? Anyway, here is the link:

Still in Nijmegen, this photo was of one of my best friends in the military. We thought this was making a statement what with him being in the army. I lost touch with him as with so many others I served with--remember, this was pre-internet days.
