Tim O'Brien's "The Things They Carried" is a short story (and book) about a fictional platoon in Vietnam. It followed their inner thoughts (fears, superstitions, memories, future hopes) and highlighted intangible and tangible items they carried on their journeys as soldiers.
For our #WhatWeCarry initiative in support of our Amaryllis campaign, we're taking Tim O'Brien's story and viewing it through our lens. We want to share with the world the personal stories, and collective voice, of the modern military spouse. Interested in contributing?
