The Unknown Soldier Speaks is a collection of student writing inspired by the brutal Vietnam War and The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. The juniors wrote point of view R.A.F.T.S. (Journal Entries, Letters, and Poems) that empathized and sympathized with the mental and physical struggles that forever changed the lives of the soldiers and their families. The junior students did a remarkable job of giving voice to the voiceless, showing appreciation to the brave soldiers that protected us, and describing the trauma that robbed so many of their innocence. I am proud to share such a rewarding experience that connects to the World Monuments Fund through the lens of The Vietnam Memorial Wall, also known as “The Wall”; a long overdue symbol of recognition for the courageous soldiers we should always respect and never forget.
