Share the Wealth: Soldiers’ Stories

There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you. -Zora Neale Hurston

Last July at Fatimas’s, Chris Wallach did a Share the Wealth on her father’s experiences in World War II. She read aloud letters he had written his parents when he was a young marine in the Pacific theater. Her sharing was profound, heart-breaking, and all too contemporary.

We–Andrew Wimmer, Suzanne Renard and I– took notice of a recent announcement by the Boeing Company of its promotion of  “Soldiers’ Stories video gallery, which features male and female veterans describing their experiences in service.”  The stories will focus on “courage, commitment and sacrifice.”

We are considering a local project in response to Boeing’s narrative partnership with the Army. We invite you to gather with us to explore the permissible range of soldiers’ stories.
