A Minnesota PBS Initiative
Catharsis and Understanding
John Sorich comes from a long line of veterans, and his son followed in this family tradition and served in Iraq. Then and now, John finds himself wondering what happened, what did we sacrifice, and what do we have to show for it?
My actual experience certainly wasn't like any of the information I'd grown up with, watching John Wayne and Audie Murphy and all those other things that we were spoon fed.
John's story was captured with the help of TPT's Minnesota Remembers Vietnam team.
