I took a short-fiction course with Dr. Roland Sodowsky in 1997 at Missouri State University (then Southwest Missouri State University), and I wrote two short stories by the end of the course. This was one of them. Preserved in all of its flawed glory, I present to you “Dear Uncle Sam” in PDF format below, followed by my teacher’s handwritten comments about the story afterward. It was not my best or brightest moment, but it is at least a little amusing, and definitely weird.
