        As Long as I Remember: American Veteranos | Lost Histories: Media Gallery

        AS LONG AS I REMEMBER: AMERICAN VETERANOS examines the steep personal toll and enduring legacy of the Vietnam War on three artists from south Texas: visual artist Juan Farias, author Michael Rodriguez and actor/poet Eduardo Garza. Through the personal histories and experiences of these Chicano veterans, the film reveals the important role art plays in sorting their memories, celebrating their culture, and treating the long-term impact of their military experience including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

        Through these film clips and lesson plans, students will consider the forces that shape our understanding of historic events and eras, understand the factors that motivated such a large percentage of Latino servicemen to enlist in the Vietnam War, understand the role of art in recovering from PTSD and explore the personal experiences of Latino Veterans through intimate interviews with Farias, Rodriguez and Garza.
