A Long Journey Home to the Heart

This presentation documents one veteran’s forty-four year journey from imperialist invader to student providing community service. You travel back to 1968 as Jim briefly recounts his time as a young Marine in Viet Nam. You then move through the stages of transformation that led Jim to study abroad—about two miles from where he serviced warplanes forty-four years previous. Jim shares the gift of connecting with the people of Viet Nam that was provided by the Brockport Viet Nam Study Abroad Program.
