Overview

In 1993, two Vietnam veterans got together over coffee and founded The Memorial Day Writers' Project (MDWP), a creative vehicle and venue for veterans and others who have been touched by war. The MDWP sets up a tent within sight of the Vietnam Memorial (The Wall), rain or shine, every Memorial Day and Veterans Day since its founding, to encourage and facilitate the sharing of creative works by playwrights, poets, and home-grown balladeers. This eloquent anthology, A Common Bond II, carefully stitched together by veteran Richard Epstein, contains poetry, prose, and songs written by 21 MDWP participants, and spans 1993 – 2011, a period in United States history that began in peacetime and has stretched into the longest war fought by the U.S. military since Viet Nam. This sampling will make your heart bleed, but your soul will smile.
