In this cours, examine the role of the media in shaping public perception of veterans, and how the depiction of veterans in movies has changed over time. We will view “The Best Years of Our Lives” and examine the issues presented in the film in their historical context, as well as in comparison to issues veterans face today. The final session will feature a panel discussion with veterans from different periods, presenting a multi-generational view of how veterans’ issues and public perceptions have changed over time.
