This exhibition highlights the jobs and experiences of the Vietnam vets, in their own words. Photographer Susan Gordon-Brown has captured the stories and portraits of National Servicemen and regulars, soldiers, sailors, airmen and nurses of many different ranks and roles from all over Australia, through interviews. Her goal was to find out about their training prior to Vietnam, the day-to-day life and coping strategies of the veterans on tour, and how they settled back into life in Australia when they returned.
