The voices of fourteen men and women who served in the military during times of war. What got you into the service? What did you do there? How were you different when you came home?
The program includes veterans from the Spanish Civil War through Vietnam – a perspective that allows them to look back on how their extremely diverse experiences affected the whole span of their lives. It includes infantrymen, nurses, mechanics, a pilot, a medic, and people just sitting behind a desk. It’s interspersed with musical settings of quotes (both pro- and anti-war) from literature and history.
