The veterans’ writing group journeyed down the Valley to iCRVradio.com.

Harvey Goldstein, Jim Masso, and Vance Fisher, along with my partner in crime, Christy Billings, spent an engaging late Thursday afternoon with Dave Williams and Ibby Carothers. After Christy gave a brief introduction explaining how the group started, Dave and Ibby drew the men – all Vietnam War veterans – out about their experiences during the war and about their writing process and its benefits.

The questions ranged from how each man came to join the group to their experience of community, to what’s next for us.

During the interview, Harv dubbed me “Sgt. Liz.” Christy, though, is a colonel! Love it!

The show aired live at 5 p.m., but listeners can hear rebroadcasts at noon, 3, and 6 p.m. on Friday, 11/11 at iCRVradio.

Everyone had an amazing time, and we’ve been invited back. We have a great surprise in store and hope that we have other members of the group join us.

Thank you, Ibby and Dave!
