My Vietnam, Your Iraq

  • Date: Thursday, August 15
  • Time: 12:00 noon CT
  • Location: ACB 240

The Vietnam War polarized the United States in the 1960s; decades later, U.S. involvement in Iraq initiated its own discord. But My Vietnam, Your Iraq connects these two wars with less attention paid to divisive politics, choosing instead to focus on the personal stories of eight Vietnam veterans whose own children have served in Iraq. The stories examine the pride, fear, and myriad of emotions and challenges that parents and their children face during deployment, each with their own perspective and expectation. Though the stories are unique to the individual families, these intimate profiles resonate with all of us: the stories of the men and women who fought and fight for themselves, their families, and their country.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
