Veterans’ Stories

Since 2008, more than one million veterans have returned home to pursue post-secondary education or a certificate (MVCC’s Veterans Information webpage has helpful information for student veterans). This Fresh Air interview with Iraq War veterans Roy Scranton and Jacob Siegel, editors and contributors to the new fiction anthology Fire and Forget: Short Stories from the Long War, provides insight in to the experience of modern soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Siegel also edits the Daily Beast’s blog, The Hero Project, which showcases veterans’ writing and covers issues of interest to veterans. Visit the Library for help tracking down a copy of Fire and Forget, or other titles relating to veterans’ stories.
