Week 2 Opacich
I’m planning on having the first interview sometime later this week. Right now I’m in the process of brainstorming and jotting questions that I feel will help my veteran to open up and tell me his story. It’s hard because I feel like it may be tough at first, but I have to make him feel at ease and able to answers the questions. I need to convey that his story will be told in a respectable and truthful way. I’m still feeling intimidated overall by this project, but hopefully I can get more comfortable as the semester goes on and my veteran and I get to know each other better. Doing the research, I’m trying to understand more about the things veterans go through, such as ptsd. I also didn’t realize how long ago the Iraq war began. It was in 2003, I was 13 at the time!
