The Telling Project has been performed in Portland and Eugene. And now it’s hitting the national stage — big time. On Veterans Day, five members of the Project will perform live for Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, and an audience of movers and shakers in D.C. We’ll hear from Wei, who will be getting his team prepped for the big performance, and from some of the participants in Telling, Portland.
How did telling their stories affect their memories of service? How did it affect the way they integrated back into daily life? Did it help friends and families understand what they went through?
If you are a veteran, do you share your stories? If so, how? If not, why not? If you are the loved one of a veteran are there stories you want to hear that you haven’t? How open are veterans in your life to telling their tales of service?
