About the Book:
Open Doors: Vietnam POWs Thirty Years Later suggests hope, opportunity and second chances – a testament to the sheer strength of the human spirit and the power of human will. The book is a tribute to Vietnam prisoners of war and their individual determination in seeking personal and professional happiness upon their release. It is a celebration of freedom.
About the Exhibit:
This collection of 30 sepia-toned, black and white photographic portraits and accompanying, written profiles celebrates the lives of 30 men who were tested like few people of subsequent generations have. The goal of this writer/photographer team is to define the subjects’ personalities with visual images and written profiles that add verbalcolor, context and quotes. It is also intended to defy the lingering, negative stereotype of Vietnam veterans and honor all who have sacrificed so much for our country: the servicemen/women and their families.
