“Vietnam was the defining event for my generation. It spilled over into all facets of American life—into music, into the pulpits, in churches of our country. It spilled over into the city streets, police forces. And even if you were born late in the generation, Vietnam was still part of your childhood.” — Tim O’Brien (b. 1946), author and Vietnam War veteran.
