Brothers Like These is comprised of stories and poems, written by Vietnam combat veterans in Classroom B, an out of the way room in the basement of the Charles George VA Medical Center in Asheville, where they gathered to write every Wednesday for nearly two years, under the guidance of former North Carolina poet laureate Joseph Bathanti of Appalachian State University.

Brothers Like These – a staged reading of those veteran authors reading their own work produced – weaves the remarkable voices of unimaginably brave soldiers who gave their all during the Vietnam War. It’s an enduring testimony to their shared sacred sense of community, love, and brotherhood. “These are stories and poems, large and small, funny and heartbreaking, that only these men can relate in their own inimitable styles —stories and poems not just invaluable to succeeding generations of soldiers, but to every citizen of our country, and beyond,” said Joseph Bathanti.
