Penn State Public Broadcasting has created an interesting web site filled with documentaries by student war veterans, “Back from Iraq: The Veterans’ Story Project.” Eight students completed a special class for them last semester, “Narrative, Oral History, New Media Technologies,” at Penn State University’s main campus that taught the vets documentary filmmaking. They chronicled their experiences in their docs. Among the vets is a Marine machine gunner, a surface warfare fire controlman and an intelligence officer. Support for the project was provided by CPB.
