2013 ChosenO'BrienQuoteExplanation The quote from The Things They Carried by Tim OBrien that I chose to integrate into my projectportfolioisthefollowing: And in the end, of course, a true war story is never about war. . . Its about love andmemory. Itsaboutsorrow.(Chapter:HowtoTellaGoodWarStory.) This quote appears on the title/home page of my portfolio, imposed on the central graphic. Its placement is for the sake of being eyecatching, engaging. As for the purposeof thequoteitself... The word story is what particularly caught my eye, initially. Because thatsexactlywhatImdoing,thatsthe purpose of this project: to respect, honor, anddocumentatruewarstory. Andofcourse,like any other, the war story that Travis Strange carries has its share of love, memories, and sorrows. Thats why it shouldbehonored.
