THE AMERICAN SOLDIER: 1774-2015
The American Soldier is actor Douglas Taurel’s unique solo performance based upon actual accounts and letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through current day Iraq and Afghanistan wars. It strives to help us understand why it is so difficult for many veterans to re-enter civilian life when they come home after experiencing combat, and examines the incredible sacrifices made by our service members and their families.

Douglas Taurel's The American Soldier has been nominated for an Amnesty International Award and has been performed at the Kennedy Center, among countless other venues.
In its brief 75 minutes, Mr. Taurel enters into the personas of 14 veterans and their family members, telling their story of courage and sacrifice. The American Soldier exposes their scars, with both darkness and humor. It’s a journey through the American story with moments that
resound with lasting meaning for both audiences old enough to remember, and those young
enough to yearn for inspiration.
