Photographer Martin Tucker

When American soldiers returned home from Vietnam, most put their memories away. Decades later, North Carolina veterans contributed thousands of dusty and faded personal photographs to what started as a class project at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem. It evolved into a national traveling exhibition and then a permanent collection of the North Carolina Museum of History called "A Thousand Words: Photographs by Vietnam Veterans." For many of these men and women, this was their first opportunity to show what they couldn't say. Photographer and Vietnam-era vet Martin Tucker presents selected glimpses of those unforgettable experiences.
