What is it about war that changes a Soldier and their family?


In the 99 letters Larry Smith sent home from Vietnam, his family followed his journey into the jungle and watched him grow from a peaceful teenage boy to a hardened young man.


The Vietnam War stole his voice, and his mind became his lasting enemy.


In her upcoming book, War and Pennies, Tracy Smith Himes tells the story of her brother Larry's time in Vietnam. She visits the humor he needed to survive and exposes the trauma that followed him home and changed everything in the family.
