When we interviewing vets for We Gotta Get Out of This Place, we began the conversations by asking “What’s your song?” Even for vets who were reluctant to talk about their experience in Vietnam, that more often than not got a smile followed by a story or three. We don’t have many regrets about the way the book came out, but we wish we’d had space to share all of those stories at full length.
This page gives you a chance to share your song. We welcome any stories from vets, including era vets who weren’t in-country, as well as stories from non-vets that tie in with the themes of the book. We’ll be checking in once or twice a week and will post some thoughts in response to the stories.
Use the comment section below let us know what your song is.
