Historical Context:
"These mouthpieces, symbolic of the veterans' voices, function not only as corks that impede the flow of memories, but also as repositories for memory. The 'Actualities' become a conduit for their reflections. By wearing the pieces, the viewers gain insight into the veterans' experience, particularly the different facets of their memories and identities. The viewers then themselves become the conduits for these oral histories." -Renee Zettle-Sterling
