Title: Once Upon a War
Subtitle: The Diary of a Waiting Wife
Synopsis: Throughout the Vietnam War, in the Kansas town of Salina, existed a thriving community called Schilling Manor. Thousands of families, including mine, waited there for loved ones to return home.
While my husband, Glen, an Air Force captain, was in Vietnam, I was solely responsible for our five young children. We had been living in a civilian community while he earned a degree in aerospace engineering at Texas A&M University. I chose to live in Schilling Manor rather than remain in a civilian neighborhood where fathers come home at night. Not only could I count on military support during Glen’s long absence, we would be near relatives in Topeka.
My story recalls the daily struggles of “single” moms, as well as political turmoil, assassinations, Vietcong attacks, and media gloom and doom. Anecdotes, many involving our 3-year-old son Warren, aka “Feller,” either lightened or added to life’s difficulties during an era when denigration of the military prevailed.
Almost every day brought a new challenge. Illness, frustration and exhaustion became the norm. Days, especially weekends, would not pass quickly enough, as the waiting seemed endless. However, community involvement and friendship with other waiting wives helped me throughout the sixteen months that I called Schilling Manor home. There has never been another community like it.
