Stories Of Southern Oregon: Poetry Inspired By Vietnam

stories_of_southern_oregon.png

The mountains are fun to look at and the ocean's cool. 

But it's the people who really make our region what it is.  We meet some truly colorful characters through Stories of Southern Oregon, compiled for the Southern Oregon Digital Archive by Maureen Flanagan Battistella. 

Maureen returns with https://youtu.be/FBBfWhi0rNY" target="_blank">Paul Tipton, a Vietnam veteran who talks about writing poetry inspired by his experiences in that war.  Listen for his story.

And go here for his entry at Oregon Poetic Voices.
