SOLDIERS AND CITIZENS: An Oral History of Operation Iraqi Freedom from the Battlefield to the Pentagon by Carl Mirra, a soldier in the U.S. Marine Corps during the first Gulf War, currently an Associate Professor of Education at Adelphi University. This book is an oral history of soldiers, policymakers, and family members effected by the ongoing Iraq War.
I’ve met many Iraq & Afghanistan War veterans who come here to see our exhibit In Our Own Words: Portraits of Brooklyn Vietnam Veterans or attend on of the discussions we’ve held in conjunction with the exhibition. And I know many Vietnam veterans who have taken it upon themselves to support the soldiers returning from Iraq/Afghanistan, giving these new veterans advice in how to readjust and cope with their experiences – advice Vietnam veterans did not receive upon their homecoming.
