The Kalkaska County Library presents a very special program: Walking on Bullets, a Korean War story as told by Maurice (Fuzzy) and Carol Guy, and translated into free verse poetry by poet bard Terry Wooten.
Reading and reciting the poems with Terry is Karen Anderson of Interlochen Public Radio. Terry is a monthly columnist for the Traverse City Record Eagle and has performed and conducted writing workshops nationwide. His Elders Project is nominated for a State History Award.
Walking on Bullets is a very personal narrative Fuzzy kept to himself for 55 years. The oral history poems tell of the horrors of the Korean War and the struggles of coping with those memories a after coming home. It is also a love story of how Carol helped guide her husband through the five decades of Post-Traumatic Stress.
