Stories From the Woodstock Experience

High School

Woodstock was perhaps the seminal experience of our generation growing up in the 60s - war protests, bra-burnings, questioning authority, coming of age. Most of us were just starting out in jobs, some in marriages, experimenting with drugs, starting to attend high school reunions.

Unfortunately or no, I didn't have the opportunity to go to Woodstock - when our peers were attending at the Yasgur farm location in the Catskills, I had been called-up to active reserve duty to train Army ROTC graduates on how to conduct and survive guerilla warfare in Vietnam. For which college ROTC programs had left them woefully unprepared.

So I have no bank of memories of Woodstock as a foundation to write about. I have read books on it, have scanned photos of it, but did not live through it. Here is where I really need your help with stories.

Your stories will be incorporated with others into the novel (Woodstock et al.) about the Woodstock experience in the 60s.
