Vietnam Veteran by Emily B


My group found this man outside of Sun Wah, a Chinese restaurant on Broadway street. Though, unfortunately, his interview sheet was misplaced, I remember that it was covered in frantic writing. He talked as fast as we could write and willingly answered every question we asked. This man had an obvious attachment to Uptown, though he had not always lived there. He and his neighbors were kicked out of their apartments. When asked what he would change about Uptown, he replied that he “didn’t like Rahm Emanuel” and that he wishes that “Obama would be our senator again.” He shared that he injured his legs in an accident, but didn’t go into detail. Before we left, he kindly told us to enjoy our lunch.
