Description

On The Front Line features the stories of a diverse group of California veterans from World War II through Iraq: gathered from interviews by Los Angeles actors/writers and told in a dramatic narrative to be shared with the veterans themselves and with us, the citizens they served. Their experiences touch on issues of civil rights, self-identity, and the long-lasting consequences of war in the hearts and minds of the soldiers who fought in them. Performance will be followed by a post-play discussion with a team of humanities experts (including Professors Lawrence Tritle, History; Ron K. Barrett, Psychology; Marsha Oseas, VA Medical Center Volunteer Trainer), the veterans whose stories have been told, and their writer/actors. This project was generated by a California Council for the Humanities “California Stories” grant and matching support from Loyola Marymount University .

True stories from: Mike Baldrige (Marines, Vietnam ), Thad Rasuli Ballew ( Navy , Vietnam ), Wendy Barranco ( Army , Iraq ), Abraham Salazar Beruman (Marines, Iraq ), Col. Franklin J. Henderson ( Army , Korea ), J.W. Holman ( Army , Vietnam ), David Jenett (Navy, WWII), Chris Mandia (Marines, Iraq ), Vincent Migliazzo (Army, WWII), George M. Omi ( Army , Korea ), Delton Sutherland ( Army , Iraq ).

Directed by Judith Royer, C.S.J., edited by Doris Baizley. Contributing Artists: Richard Azurdia, Linda Bannister, Doris Baizley, Catharine Christof, Harry Cronin, April Fitzsimmons, Johnny Garofalo, Joyce Guy, Jim Holmes, James E.
