Rags to Redemption: Combat Paper Project | Vietnam Magazine- June 2011

Napalm- John LaFalce, Pulp painting on Combat Paper, 2010

The Combat Paper Project story I was interviewed for in February is now available in the June Issue of  Historynet’s Vietnam Magazine and can also be viewed on-line here.  The very nice six page spread written by Roger Vance features the work and story of CPP, including a special focus about how the project has been helpful for Vietnam Veterans participating in CPP’s veterans workshops.

My contribution to the article  included commenting on the therapeutic qualities connected to the process of papermaking, such as its sensory-based, self-soothing, and mindful elements, as well as the powerful opportunity to make meaning through the process of the uniform deconstruction to gain a new perspective about ones experience about military service.
