Blog Explores Journey of WWII Offspring, PTSD

I received news of this fascinating new niche blog focusing on what effect war -- to be specific, World War II -- has on the warrior and those who follow in their footsteps: their children. From Legacy of War:

This is my attempt to add to the conversation about the effects of war, not only on the combatant, but also on the family members after the homecoming. The boomer generation has been mainly silent about their fathers' war legacy. We have had our stoic dads as role models. It is time to break the silence so we can share with succeeding generations what we have learned.

The author, carolsv, is the "baby boomer daughter of a paratrooper WWII dad, and the stepdaughter of a Navy WWII radar specialist." She is also involved in the Daughters of D-Day project which aims to share stories and provide support for "other men and women whose fathers fought in Europe, in the Pacific campaign, or anywhere during the span of World War II."
