About the Redcarcher Writing Project
The Redcatcher publication is a work in progress. We will be reaching out to the military men
and women of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade.
This collaborative journal will present a forum for their shared stories and experiences. We propose that this publication
will present a venue for reflection and catharsis.
For the Vietnam Veterans, we will be seeking your stories of life prior to your Vietnam
experience; stories about your time in Vietnam;
stories about where life has taken you since Vietnam.
And, we will reach out to all the other Redcatchers of differing eras. We welcome participation from those currently serving
in the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. This will be a shared profile of Redcatchers Then and Now.
We expect to develop a questionnaire to help serve this effort and trigger those memories.
This effort will accept various genres including poetry, essays, fiction and non-fiction. But, we expect that most
of the submissions will be memoir driven. For those individuals who may not be comfortable with writing; or, may
not know where to start or how to approach this project... you are encouraged to enlist the support of others
to help share your voice and story. This could be an opportunity for family / friends to share in your experiences
as well. Consider an interview approach.
More details will be available regarding submissions.
Since this is a work in progress, we also welcome those stories from family and
friends, And, we will consider submissions from other military units. We hope to provide a venue for all involved to particpate
and have their stories published.
In the meantime, if you have anything to submit
or any suggestions or questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
