Veterans: DC is ours.

My name is Kevin Bagosy and I work for Penn State Public Broadcasting
in University Park, PA. I was looking at your website and thought you
might be interested in this website, Back From Iraq, about a Penn
State course aimed specifically to Iraq War veterans, "Narrative, Oral
History, New Media Technologies.". This course was designed to teach
student veterans how to use video and web technologies in order to
chronicle the stories and experiences of the Iraq War. Over the
duration of this class students are asked to create a documentary
about some aspect of the war. This website features their final
movie, their experiences making it, and their feelings on the war.

The website features 4 student veterans. Some of the students turn
the camera on themselves, while some feature other veterans. All the
students discuss the process of making their video and recount their
experiences in Iraq. The course offers a very candid and rare view of
the Iraq war. The website also features interviews with the creators
of the course discussing the importance of veterans interviewing
veterans. The instructors also discuss how the idea for the course
came about.

Below is the link for the website. Let me know if you post our link
on your website and we could post a link to yours as well. If you have
any more questions about the site or anything about Penn State Public
Broadcasting let me know. Thanks for your time.
