Shared Weight: Visions of War, Dreams of Peace

May 29, 2017 – Segment 1

We hosted an episodes from our series Shared Weight, featuring the voices of men and women who served in the Viet Nam War.

We listened in to the segment M*A*S*H 1969 – Visions of War, Dreams of Peace. We heard the compelling stories of poet George Evans and the late author and nurse Lynda Van Devanter. First, in a tale that could have come straight out of the movie and TV series M*A*S*H, Evans relayed his experience as an Air Force medic who became the first soldier to defeat his court martial. We then heard the powerful and heart-wrenching story of Van Devanter, who served as a surgical nurse in 1969 and 1970, and whose memoir Home Before Morning: The Story of an Army Nurse in Vietnam inspired the 1980’s hit TV series China Beach.
