The Official Proclamation  &  Story of Veterans' Voices...

So, there I was, getting ready to publish an essay on the end

of the Iraq War, when I read this Op-Ed  by Sebastian Junger.

And I'm like, this is great, dude, but it ain't gonna

fly, but this REALLY needs to fly, so I offer up THIS.

And this high school teacher buddy of mine gets onboard, and it's game on, cuz THIS happens.

And I hook up with the folks at the Minnesota Humanities Center and Boom... we do THIS.

And word got around, said this stuff is insane, man

got an Op-Ed  in the paper and boom we're in the game.

And now the Humanities Center is bringing it... check 'em out.
