My Vietnam Your Iraq

In late 1967, Ron Osgood naively dropped out of college, not giving much thought to the consequences. Several months later he made the decision to follow his family lineage and joined the Navy, as his father served in the Pacific during the Second World War. With an understanding of the bond between fathers and sons who have served their country, Osgood’s film tells the stories of Vietnam veterans whose children have served in Iraq. This story looks at the pride, challenges, fears, and possible bitterness with which parents and children are faced when one is serving in a war. (Digital presentation.)

Filmmaker Ron Osgood is scheduled to be present.
