Tom Garvey, an Airborne, Ranger, and Special Forces qualified officer served as an A-Team Leader in Viet Nam in 1968 and returned home to mixed reviews about his stability and state of mind. Like many other Viet Nam Veterans, he found few who cared to hear about his time overseas. Now, with his wife Peggy and his wonderful family of five stepchildren and their mates and two world-class grandchildren, he has finally come home. Life is good. Life is very good indeed. Hosted by Charles S. Carr Recorded May 4th, 2021. Philly Loves Poetry consists of a panel of guest poets and artists discussing the opportunities which their group or organization provides for poets in Philly as well as the themes that influence them.
