Abstract: The Veterans Learning Community curriculum is a sequence of two general-education courses (GEC): a reading course that looks at representations of the experience of war in art, literature, and film from diverse cultures and time periods, followed by a second-level writing course that asks students to document their learning community’s knowledge and experiences. This symposium highlights the Veterans Learning Community final projects: Daniel Dixon, "The 'Absolute Professional': A Study of Green Beret Self-Representations"; Matthew Ausderan, "The War About a War: Analysis of PBS Frontline's Feature Documentary Bush's War"; Ambrose Schulte, "'Tough Transition': A Structural Analysis of Veterans' Separation Stories"; Erica Slone, "Visualizing the Experiences of War: A Study of Storytelling Through Art"; Chad McMahon, "The Patriotic Mother Archetype: A Gold Star Mother's Memoir"; Kyle Huston, "The 'Holocaust': The Emotional Metaphors Marines Use to Describe their Experiences"; and Joshua Green: "'Tired of Feeling Lucky': Recollecting Combat Duty."
