Veterans' Testimony Wanted

Connie Gibbons, whose husband Greg served with the  Marines at Khe Sanh in Vietnam in 1967-68, is putting together a collection of letters tentatively titled “If I Could See You, I Would Tell You.” The proposed book would be made up of present-day letters from veterans and their families discussing traumatic events that occurred during the war “to promote healing of deep scars and unresolved feelings.”

Those “powerful words, ” she says, “would represent a great gift of understanding to pass from one generation to the next.”

If you’d like to participate, you can do so in writing (no more than 1, 500 words) or a voice recording on CD, and send the submission by December 31, along with a short paragraph of background.

If you do, please mention that you read about the project on Vietnam Veterans of America’s Arts of War on the Web page.
