The final essay is Rafael Chabrán’s moving personal account of the experiences of his father, a Puerto Rican military man. Chabrán, a noted Hispanist, through his family´s (and his own) history, throws light on how the war transformed the life of many veterans. ‘He never spoke about the war, or wars, and I never asked,’ Chabrán noted. “‘He does not like to talk about those things’, my mother warned me many times as I was about to ask or had asked without thinking. All I had and still have are those pictures in family albums that I loved to look at when I was a child.”
