  26. 26. Works Cited<br />Contos, Michael J. Email interview. 27 May 2010. This     interview was extremely helpful. He gave more information than was asked to and     even provided links to some articles.<br />Garfinkle, Adam. Telltale Hearts. New     York, New York: St.     Martin’s Press, 1995. Google Books. Web. 9 May 2010. <http://books.google.com/‌books?id=4_XnFrpIbPYC&pg=PA294&dq=telltale+hearts+the+origin&hl=en&ei=cz_nS52rFIP48Ab-k-CdDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1& ved=0CDMQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false>. A book on the origins and impact of the Anti-Vietnam War movement. It does agood job of being an unbiased source and giving both sides of the story. I would highly recommend it.<br />Risen, Tom. “VA Aims for a Better G.I. Bill.” Government     Executive 29 Mar. 2010: n. pag. http://www.govexec.com/‌. Web. 10     May 2010. <http://www.govexec.com/‌dailyfed/‌0310/‌032910cdpm1.htm>. It tells what the VA is trying to do to improve the G.I. bill. This source was  okay. It provided enough information to for my requirements, but it did not go beyond that.<br />
  27. 27. Works Cited Continued<br />Sitikoff, Harvard. The Postwar Impact of Vietnam. Modern American Poetry. Oxford UP, n.d. Web. 10 May 2010. <http://www.english.illinois.edu/‌MAPS/‌vietnam/‌postwar.htm>. A really thorough source about the postwar impact of the Vietnam war. It     provided specific dates and occurrences. It also did a good job in backing up     its research. I would highly recommend it.<br />Yokum, Troy.     “Supporting Our Military.”  Sr Live.  Fox News. 9 Apr. 2010. www.foxnews.com. Web. Transcript. 10 May 2010. <http://video.foxnews.com/‌v/‌4143750/‌supporting-our-military>. This was  a wonderful segment. In addition to providing an example of the people supporting the Iraq veterans, it gives a soldier’s perspective on treatment of Vietnam veterans and statistics on Iraq war veteran suicide.<br />
