Every Tuesday for the past seven weeks, veterans – mostly from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – have gathered at Boston College in Newton, Mass. for a writing workshop.
They came at the bequest of Roxana von Kraus, the mother of an active Marine who found that writing helped her cope with her son’s deployment. She’s is helping these veterans put on paper their war experiences, as well as write about the difficulty of coming home and transitioning back to civilian life.
