For the Fallen ~ A Hearing Voices Special
Sunday, May 27
12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

Green Beret and poet Major Robert Schaefer, US Army, hosts this one-hour special featuring veterans remembering their comrades: We hear from troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan reading their emails, poems, and journals as part of the NEA project: "Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience." We hear interviews from StoryCorps, an essay from This I Believe, and the sounds of a Military Honor Guard. And we attend the daily "Last Post" ceremony by Belgian veterans honoring the WWI British soldiers who died defending a small town in western Belgium. From NPR's Hearing Voices series.
