Believing war is beyond words is an abrogation of responsibility it lets civilians off the hook from trying to understand and veterans off the hook from needing to explain You don t honor someone by telling them I can never imagine what you ve been through Instead listen to their story and try to imagine being in it no matter how hard or uncomfortable that feels If the past 10 years have taught us anything it s that in the age of an all volunteer military it is far too easy for Americans to send soldiers on deployment after deployment without making a serious effort to imagine what that means We can do better After War a Failure of the Imagination By PHIL KLAY New York Times Sunday Review FEB 8 2014In his searing collection Redeployment winner of the 2014 National Book Award Phil Klay strips the wartime experience of everything that makes us congratulate ourselves for our nation s bravery dispels any romantic notion we have of soldiers in combat and empties our hearts of hope that we have not done grave even irreparable damage to the bodies and minds of these young men and women We shot dogs Not by accident We did it on purpose and we called it Operation Scooby I m a dog person so I thought about that a lot And so opens Redeployment with its eponymous story The collection offers voices of men nearly all Marines some speaking from home others still in Ira each offering a distinct and visceral reflection of his war experience There is the adrenaline rush of combat rife with acronyms and Oo rahs fuck and blood in Frago Ten Kliks South and After Action Report The latter shows how missions can be twisted and misremembered as one soldier claims responsibility for something he did not do to spare a buddy the conseuences of truth But the conseuences of war do not spare any of the soldiers The stories of veterans returned home affected me the most for it is here that our failure of these volunteers is the starkest The training for war is planned and executed with precision the plan for the soldiers once they no longer have a leader and a mission is almost non existent and their emotional wounds are left to fester The young man in Bodies collected the bodies of the dead not only was he an outcast in war the lowest member of the military caste system but he returns home to a girlfriend who rejects him for having enlisted in the first place He belongs nowhere and his loneliness is crushing The black humor between two friends in War Stories is painful and tender one young man is so disfigured from his burn wounds he and his buddy both know he won t win even a pity fuck from the ugly girls in the bar Money as a Weapons System is a window into the surreal Who s on first world of government bureaucracy as told by a baffled Foreign Service Officer Prayer in the Furnace is the author at his most tender and philosophical writing in the voice of a chaplain who believes he has knowledge of war crimes His attempts to bring the transgressions to the attention of those in authority and his attempts to bring God to the attention of the soldiers force the reader to reconsider morality and judgment There s a perversity in me that when I talk to conservatives makes me want to bash the war and when I talk to liberals defend it That s how an Ira veteran now student at Amherst explains his ambivalence about his service His story takes a twist he s a Copt an Egyptian Christian who grew up in the shadow of 911 As America deepened its mistrust of anyone who looks Middle Eastern the underlying assumption being that Middle Eastern Muslim Enemy his father became a gung ho Fox News conservative to deal with the prejudice His son joined the military in a perverse need to both please and hurt his father What elevates these stories above voyeurism and shock value is Phil Klay s pitch perfect writing His ear for dialogue his eye for detail offering just enough poetry in his prose to seduce but not to saturate and the immediacy and emotion of his characters voices reveal the power this young writer wields in his pen These are masterfully crafted stories of war walking in the same footsteps as Tim O Brien Ernest Hemingway and Wilfred Owen before him but with a vision all his ownAs I write this review the Senate Intelligence Committee is at long last issuing a report on the Central Intelligence Agency s program to detain and interrogate terrorism suspects in the years after the Sept 11 attacks The report is a damning indictment on the techniues used by the CIA techniues the report identifies as torture Former Vice President Dick Cheney is already spinning away calling these enhanced interrogation techniues lawful and justified After all these were members of the Axis of Evil determined to undermine peace justice and the merricun wayI wonder if any of the men and women who made the decision to lead our country into war with Ira has the courage to read Phil Klay s Redeployment I wonder if any of these politicians has the courage to understand what their war has done to the soldiers who volunteered to serve in their name If the past 10 years have taught us anything it s that in the age of an all volunteer military it is far too easy for Americans to send soldiers on deployment after deployment without making a serious effort to imagine what that means We can do better Phil Klay
