"Poignant, cutting, witty, humorous, trenchant, optimistic and devastatingly honest, Bailey chronicles the profound and the mundane as he struggles to maintain his humanity in the face of war."
Garry Dow, Pomfret School
"Bailey was a literary magician—a man who plucked the right words from thin air at exactly the right moment, often as a grunt in mud and rain. His sense of humor was enviable."
Henry Zeybel, Vietnam Veterans of America
"Loring M. Bailey, Jr. wrote prolifically throughout his experience of training and war. Ring found a passion in the written word. His letters represent the emergence of a new voice. A voice heard only briefly and from the most horrific of circumstances." Chip Lamb

"My Father's Vietnam" is a powerful and gripping story---a worthy testament to complex lives and impossible choices made by young people coming of age while the world was in flames. These accidental heroes---soldiers, resisters, the women who waited and worried---emerge as fully human beings thrust into situations not of their making, struggling to make sense and create meaning out of chaos. This is a dazzling documentary and a necessary addition to the chronicle of the Viet Nam years.
Emerald City of Oz in downtown Burlington, was a product of the 60's and honored the politics, art, and music of that era. It was an avante guard gift boutique and a waterbed store. Its joy was to employ talented artists and allow them the freedom to flourish. And flourish they did. The result was spectacular line art, lovely paintings, iconic sculptures, magnificent murals, memorable radio and really fun street theatre. The building sparkled in multiple shades of green and glowed at night. It was a fantasy brought to life.
