When American soldiers returned home from Vietnam, most put their memories away. Decades later, North Carolina veterans contributed thousands of dusty and faded personal photographs to what started as a class project at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem. It evolved into a national traveling exhibition and then a permanent collection of the North Carolina Museum of History called “A Thousand Words: Photographs by Vietnam Veterans.” For many of these men and women, this was their first opportunity to show what they couldn’t say. Photographer and Vietnam-era vet Martin Tucker presents selected glimpses of those unforgettable experiences.
