Vietnam Veterans Unbroken: Conversations on Trauma and Resiliency– Book Launch and Discussion With Author Jacqueline Murray Loring
July 10, 2019 EDTFree
For 50 years, civilians have avoided asking about the controversial experiences of Vietnam veterans, many of whom suffer through post-traumatic stress alone. Through interviews conducted with 17 soldiers, this book shares the stories of those who have been silenced. These men and women tell us about life before and after war. They candidly share stories of 40-plus years lived on the ‘edge of the knife’ and many wonder what their lives would be like if they had come home to praise and parades. They offer stories of their tragedies and successes to newer veterans, as choices to be made or rejected. Many of the veterans interviewed will be in attendance. Books will be available for sale. Free will donation. Complimentary refreshments.
