The most interesting source I found regarding my topic was shown to me by a classmate. It is a BuzzFeed article (approved by Prof. Troutman) that shows photos of WWII veterans posed in very personal situations in hopes of showing what it feels like to live with the mental illnesses they acquired due to combat. These people chose their own props, poses, etc. to aid in making these photos not only easily understood, but more easily empathized with than ever before. This article was particularly interesting to me because it makes these people’s situations more realistic, and really forces the viewers to SEE what is happening to them and why. It will help my research project because I want to compare how the media portrayed the issues that come along with going to war, particularly how “hidden” they kept these stories and the information (if any) in general that they had during WWII to now. This will hopefully make clear any significant differences between then and now, and therefore make my point more valid.
