In your May article “At Peace on the Swells,” the Vietnam War veterans featured have become one with the waves through their surfing to combat PTSD. As a physician at a Veterans Affairs hospital and a non-VA hospital, I have seen the terrible effects of PTSD on my patients. I congratulate American Way for handling a sensitive subject with a remarkable, non-traditional approach to help those who have served us.

I’m not easily impressed, and reading any magazine cover to cover is uncommon for me, but that is exactly what I just did with your March issue of American Way. From an entertainment standpoint, this issue rivals any magazine I’d pay for. I love how the various pieces took me on a tour of the world from downtown Los Angeles to England and the gastro-scene of New Zealand and Australia. It may have even re-lit my flame for travel, which is difficult to do for someone who travels constantly for work!
The Manchester article (March 2017) was very informative and transported me to this vibrant city. I visited London in 1999 as an 18-year-old graduate from high school. Although I fell short of reaching Manchester, I feel as if I have just left this city after reading American Way. My interest for Manchester came about because of Sir Alex Ferguson and the way he coached and managed the soccer club Manchester United. Although the article is not all about soccer, I feel it’s important to clarify that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola did not move from Real Madrid, as the article states, and was actually the previous manager for FC Barcelona and most recently Bayern Munich.
