Sex and the Wounded Soldier

sws web

For Veteran’s Day, I wrote a brief story for the Dart Society Reports on “sex and the wounded soldier.”  It’s about a lot of overlapping themes — my friendship with a wounded soldier (now dead) who worried a lot about war’s impact on his intimate life; an amputee dance troupe from World War II, called “The Amputettes”; and the U.S. military’s long-standing awkwardness about matters of sex, heart, and family.
