Short Story 11: The Foxhole

Senior year photo in parade uniform: 1983

“What should my next short story be about?” I asked one of my sons and his girlfriend recently.  They gave me a couple of challenging suggestions, and The Foxhole is the result! It will be included in a “linked short story” collection I’m working on with the link–or common element–being West Point, The United States Military Academy.

Enjoy! Please “Like” it (if you do) and leave me a comment or another suggestion!
