River Teeth Spring 2015 Issue

My in-depth profile of Vietnam veteran-author Philip Caputo is slated for Spring 2015 issue of River Teeth (journal of nonfiction narrative). Excerpt from RT's website:
"Unlike the veterans from America’s 'Greatest Generation,' those who fought and died in the Vietnam War have no public anniversary, such as a June 6 or December 7, to annually commemorate their service. Certainly there is extensive reminiscence for the nation’s signature conflict of the 1960s and ’70s. But the Vietnam generation’s story, unlike World War II’s collective saga of sacrifice, is more of a narrative quilt, a patchwork of individual tales, traumas, and singular triumphs."
