Today I was proud to attend a function at the Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor that featured a project I’m working on with some talented film-makers. As part of Gilder Lehrman and Library of America’s World War I and America series, Maria Rusolo presented portions of the documentary I Am Number, which highlights the history of war through the voices of the soldiers fighting in them.
About 50 people attended the event, including Vietnam Veterans and their families. It was a moving and educational experience.
I Am Number is an oral history project that focuses on veterans and civilians subjected to the 1969 US Selective Service Draft. If you’re interested in learning more, please visit the link I Am Number….
