The official Sebastian Junger community
My name is Victor Corral, and I am a Navy veteran (active duty from 2000-2005) originally from Mexico.
I am looking to interview other veterans that are foreign-born for a writing project that I am in the process of developing that will examine military service, immigration, and war from a personal perspective.
If that's you or someone you know, please let me know by replying to this thread.
Thanks in advance, I look forward to participating in this community.
Hi Victor, thank you for writing. Your topic is a great one...I would suggest that you go onto our facebook page, which has many veterans as fans, and ask people to talk to you. the site is "restrepothemovie.com." best of luck to you -
Thank you for that suggestion Mr. Junger, I will certainly do that. And thank you for your film and your writing, particularly on this topic. As a young writer, I aspire to tell my own story with the clarity and resonance with which you have told yours.
I hope you make it out to the San Francisco Bay Area at some point, I'd love to attend one of your events.
Thank you so much...i should be out there in February. Take care -
I would be willing to share my story. I was born in the Philippines and the US military is pretty much the only thing I've ever know since I was age 6...I'm 43 now and have deployed several times.
