3 Nations Anthology Contributors: Chuck Kniffen

Chuck Kniffen co-owns and operates Turtle Dance Totems sea-junk studio and arts cooperative, with his wife, Rhonda Welcome, in Lubec, Maine. He is a combat wounded veteran of the Vietnam War who has been penning bits and pieces since his discharge from the Green Machine. Chuck finally finished a book length war/memoir, Fifty Years in a Foxhole. In his wealth of free time he is an all-season kayaker, paddling in circles over the North Atlantic singing praise to…well, he says its “singing praise” but you couldn’t tell by asking the urchin divers what that unholy racket was.
