Thomas Harris Newton, my dad, home on leave from his tour of duty in Vietnam. In this picture, he’s standing in my grandparent’s living room in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was called up in the draft. Unlike other men his age, however, many from wealthier families, he didn’t have the protection of college to keep him from the draft. He was already working in the printing industry, repairing web presses, learning how to lay out type, etc. Luckily my dad came home from Vietnam, a detail I think about much more often now that I have children of my own.
