veteran interview

When i first began looking for someone to interview, I wasn’t sure who I would interview, since I did not know any veterans. I found Professor Curley through the university. It was awkward at first because I was interviewing someone I did not know at all. I was not sure how sensitive he would be […]

Greatest Generations Ch. 7

I thought it was interesting how the public found the end of the Korean War to be a “relief.” The public had had their fill of war and were just waiting for the veterans to return to normal again. The quote at the beginning of chapter 7 was astonishing to me. The man from the 24th Infantry Division was […]

I think it is interesting how the government was not willing to recognize Korea as a war It was a  “police action,” which many would argue is a war nonetheless. I can’t help but think about how the veterans of the Korean War felt, knowing that their service in what they thought was a war, […]

Born on the Fourth of July Part 2

I have to say, I truly enjoyed reading this book. It put the life of a veteran into perspective. Kovic wrote this book for a reason, to show everyone the truth of what happened after Vietnam.

Doing Battle Part 2

I thought this part of the book was a little less interesting than the first part. I thought it was interesting to read about how Fussell adapted into civilian life. He said that the civilians believed the soldiers would adapt quickly to life, but in reality, the exact opposite happened. Fussell said for some soldiers, […]

Doing Battle/Greatest Generations – World War 2

I enjoyed reading Doing Battle. The fact that it was a soldier’s first hand account of war made the scenes so vivid in my mind. Fussell did not even intend on joining the army. he was interested in photography, not the army. He joined the ROTC not because he was interested in the army but […]

Doughboys pp 1-34

I never knew that World War I was the first war to draft soldiers. This caused animosity and rebellion among citizens, especially those who did not want to fight. The government was so adamant about men obeying their drafting orders that the government threatened to humiliate those men who did not enter the draft. While […]
