Shared Weight: The Gilchrest Brothers

marcjeffwaynerichJune 13, 2013 – Hour 1

We bring you the story of the five Gilchrest brothers, four of whom were actively involved with the war in some way but who had never discussed it among themselves before our interview. Listen in as former congressman Wayne Gilchrest and his four brothers – Jeffrey, AlanRichard, and Clifford – reflect on how they were affected by the war and how their views of the world evolved in the years hence.

This is a rebroadcast of an episode from Shared Weight, our series showcasing voices and stories of individuals from all sides of the Vietnam War, thirty years after its end.
