The Things They Carried: Remembering Vietnam
Winter Reading Challenge
There's a lot the grunts in Vietnam carried: canteen, helmet, ammo pack, mess kit, flak vest, rucksack, and weapons. Once back home, they could set down the field gear, but those other burdens that they picked up "in-country" continued to wear down their souls. Join us for the NEA Big Read of Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, and complete any four activities in this mission to learn more about the war in Vietnam.
