Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking through the foggy Vietnam Jungles, hearing the ribbit of frogs and slither of snakes. Imagine watching a family discuss the war and how they felt about their son leaving. Imagine listening to stories told by Vietnam War veterans and how they got through the war. That was what our Truth of War exhibition was, we wanted to let the audience and visitors feel like they were in Vietnam but still educating them about what the soldiers had to go through on a daily basis.Welcome to the emotional side of the vietnam war.” Today this is the new start of your new life, in this section of the jungle you will pick a photo from the bowl and you pretend that this is your family. Today you are about to embark on a new journey of ours. As you go through this part you will be missing your family. When you leave this room you will be saying goodbye to your family. When I think about war, I always think about the American Soldiers and if they are winning. I have never once thought about the other side and how their country is getting destroyed. This project has made me realize that there is more to just America. It has broadened my horizon on the world and conflicts that are going on. I have always been really interested in war, and how the soldiers are feeling. This project let me explore that curiosity and learn so many things that I had been wondering about. I had heard about the Vietnam War from my sister’s project last year and I was very intrigued with the tunnels and different little tricks that were involved. Reading The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien also helped me to understand more of the war and things that you might not be able to get out of a war article or website. It gave me that extra little insight from a veteran that most people don’t get to have or understand. Even though I didn’t have that much background knowledge, I was a vital part of my group and couldn’t have done it without my group members as well, we worked as a wonderful team to create a beautiful product that we were proud of.
