After watching the clips, reading some of the excerpts from the book Operation Homecoming, and following some of the other given links, discuss the commonalities you find in these responses to war and in those you have read in other works over the semester. Despite the passage of time, are writers concerned with essentially the same subjects, or are artists responding to Iraq and Afghanistan facing unique issues?
2. Which of the works we read do you believe is most effective at exploring the military or wartime experience? Why? Please support why you see a text as effective; avoid just saying that you liked something because it was “short” or “easy”! (please use the book Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five)
