A Pea Coat Goes Home is the story of a 70 year- old coat that the author and his father shared throughout their lives. The coat will survive a world war, be worn during a marriage proposal and handed down to the author as he wears it in his own youth. The coat will occupy many closets as lives change until it is ultimately returned to the ship (now a museum) where its original owner served during World War 2.

Les Rolston was born in 1954 and has studied American history for most of his adult life. His greatest interest is in the lives of ordinary people, who in times of crisis go on to do extraordinary deeds.

His first book, Lost Soul described his efforts to preserve the unmarked grave site of a Confederate soldier buried in Rhode Island. Les is the author of Long Time Gone: Neighbors Divided by Civil War and Home of the Brave: Selected Short Stories Of Immigrant Medal Of Honor Recipients Of The Civil War.

A Pea Coat Goes Home is a son’s tribute to his father’s memory. This is the story of a military pea coat issued in 1942 and of the bond that is created between a father and son. When a pea coat is found in the back of a closet many years after his father’s passing, memories are stirred, stories remembered, and a legacy is restored through the threads of a pea coat.
