Week 1 Opacich

Aaron Jackson makes a goofy face while in the Veteran's Resource Center in Dempsey Hall.

Yesterday I met with Aaron Jackson for the first time in the Dempsey VRC. He was with his friend, who is also a war veteran being interviewed for the project. The first reaction that I got from Aaron was that he was pretty approachable and had a friendly face. This project is quite daunting for me, as I have minimal knowledge on the war overall and what occurs overseas. I’ve also never known anyone who’s been in the military or who has been involved in any wars. But Aaron put me at ease asking him about his life and his experiences, since he has a very laid-back, friendly and goofy personality.

The only concern I have regarding Aaron is getting  substantial and serious stories from him. He seems to have the attitude where he jokes around a lot, but I’m thinking if I keep being persistent I can get more out of him. Only time will tell, I guess, but it may take effort and a number of interviews.
