Tim O’Brien

My smart person is Tim O’Brien. He was born in Austin , Minnesota on October,1,1946. He grew up in Worthington, Minnesota went to Macalester college. Graduated in 1968 he had a BA in political science at that time. That same year he was drafted into the army.


His division was involved in the My Lai Massacre. After completing duty he went to graduate school at Harvard university. He had an internship at the Washington post where he started his writing career. In 1973 he released If I Die in a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home, the book was about his war experiences.


He is a very inspirational person because he was at Vietnam and a writer.
