Groups sponsored by the Navy
Family Service Center since Aug.
28, 1990, various programs have
been instituted by other sources.
The change in life echoes in the
classroom. At Salem High School in
Virginia Beach, 40 percent of the
student body may be directly
affected by the war. To prevent
emotional distress at school, media
sources have been removed from
"We're not allowed to be overly
aware of the situation. (The
presence of media in the
classroom) could be real conducive
for freaking out," said Salem
biology teacher Patti Tosloskie. If
she were in the children's shoes,
she said, "I'd want to be aware, but
then I'd also want to be with
family, too."
Patriotic fervor reverberates
through the halls. "People are more
patriotic. In homeroom nobody
would stand up for the pledge.
Now everyone does. And during
the moment of silence; people
would pray, especially after the first
few days of the war had started,"

Vigilante added. "People are just
starting to care. Of course there are
demonstrations against the war, but
a lot of people are supporting the.
Even people against the war are
not vocal in their protest,
considering the overwhelming
military population. "A lot of
people became angry of you. We
just didn't protest. There weren't a
lot of us," said 17-year-old Jerry
Wian. "I was opposed to the war
for the entire time. I just didn't
think it was right, because the
killing of any person just isn't
The relief that the war finally
seems over masks deeper doubts
concerning loved ones and hazy
future relations with Iraq..
High school senior Sheri
Sarmiento knows two people
serving in the Gulf: a friend and
her sister's boyfriend. "My initial
reaction was 'I'll believe it when I
see it.' I didn't think he (Hussein)
was going to pull out -just
comply so easily. I don't think
Bush should have called the cease-
fire until Hussein started moving,"
she remarked.
Without disappearing, the

tension in Hampton Roads has
decreased. "People seemed
generally happier about it being
over, but they were also skeptical
about it," she added. "It's a lot less
worriful. People are more relaxed.
Right now all they want is for the
troops to come home. They're
waiting for the peace talks.
Generally, they're relieved."
The relief encompasses hope
that the region's economy will
rebound and that no more local
soldiers will die in the war's
'The economy around here
really took a beating. About a fifth
of the total working population was
gone. Some of them are the main
bread-winners for their family,"
said 17-year-old Barry Waldman.
As in the past, residents of this
military zone focus on the future.
"People think it has really affected
us, but a lot of the families are used
to it. We always get through
everything," Basiljo projected.
Despite the havoc inflicted by
the war, Hampton Roads will not
go gently into that good night. The.
next time I'm home I hope the
sounds of F-15s will again shatter
the quiet stillness.
