War vets from Vietnam featured in book

There is a book that is out which gives a voice to those who have been silenced for years. “Vietnam Veterans Unbroken Conversations on Trauma and Resiliency” covers those who have served in the Vietnam War, and the hardships they had to endure on returned back home to the United States. Author Jacqueline Murray Lorin says For 50 years, it has been easier for civilians not to ask Vietnam veterans questions about their military service, not to listen when they do share, not to hear about life after their return to a country at war with itself and them. Through interviews conducted with 17 in-country soldiers, her book shares the stories of those who have been silenced.

The book’s launch will be held at The New Mexico Veteran’s Memorial, 1100 Louisiana Blvd. SE, Albuquerque on Tuesday, June 4, from  5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
