Memories of the age of Innocence Lost -- we want to hear yours

on August 15, 2014 10:54 AM

The 1960s were a time of upheaval and rapid cultural developments here at home.

The Indiana Gazette is putting together a special section about the Vietnam War and the sweeping societal changes that marked the time period. The publication is the third in a series of commemorative editions chronicling important eras of modern history as seen through the eyes of Indiana County residents. The first two took a look back at our lives during World War II and the Korean War, both at home and abroad.

Our “Loss of Innocence” project seeks to explore the tumultuous era replete with milestones that have shaped the course of America — the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a war in southeast Asia, the moon landing, the Civil Rights Movement and the countercultural revolution among them. What was life like for you during that time? We want to hear from you about your experiences.

If you served in the Vietnam War, or had a family member who did, the Gazette would like to talk with you. The same holds true for those of you who marched on Washington, D.C., attended the Woodstock music festival or have any indelible memories of the era. Please call news editor Jason Levan at (724) 465-5555, ext. 270, by Aug. 29.
