Project: I Am Number

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….

  1. This project sounds amazing. I find it surprising there were only 50 people at something like this in NY, but 50 would be an amazing turnout where I live. Congrats on your part in it. I look forward to hearing more, and I’ll check out the link.
