Celebrate Spring and the Creativity of our Veterans

VFP Chapter 72 members and friends are invited to a house party featuring two of our finest “old creatives” — veterans of the American war in Viet Nam whose autobiographical creative works are intertwined with, and attempt to make meaning of, their individual experiences in/with Viet Nam.

IntotheHeartBandon writer Don Blackburn, a member of VFP Hoa Binh, Vietnam Chapter 160, will read from his most recent book, Into the Heart. This is also a send-off for Don, who is set to fly back to Nha Trang, Vietnam, where he resides for most of the year now, on Friday.

larryclipPortland filmmaker and VFP72 member Larry Johnson, who has just launched an Indiegogo campaign for his film project, Ghost Money, will share a clip at the gathering. Larry will be donating some of the proceeds from his campaign to Vietnam Volunteer Network.

Refreshments will be provided… Please come! Bring a friend!


Contributions welcome! Don will be selling copies of his book (proceeds benefiting Vietnam Friendship Village Project) and Larry hopes to collect a few donations to add to his Indiegogo campaign.

Becky Luening and her husband Brian (also a Vietnam veteran) are hosting this springtime soiree at their place in SE Portland. Please call Becky for address and driving or transit directions: at 503-774-9197.
