The Veterans' Interest Unit is a collection of two writing techniques sections, three model essays--narrative, descriptive, and persuasive-- a historical fiction piece, annotated link page, and essay prompts. A complete answer key rounds out the 24-page, illustrated through flickr, unit. The narrative essay is an analysis of a favorite song with an anti-Communist theme. The descriptive essay is about a student's favorite job--Driving a Tank in Bosnia. The persuasive essay defends a band that played pro-soldier heavy metal.
