For the Fallen

  • Fred Vigeant

This Memorial Day, join us for a special program in the occasional series Hearing Voices.

Green Beret and poet, Major Robert Schaefer, US Army, hosts the voices of veterans remembering their comrades:

We talk with 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, recorded by Charles Lane.

We attend the daily “Last Post” ceremony by Belgian veterans honoring the WWI British soldiers who died defending a small town in western Belgium (produced by Marjorie Van Halteren).

Listen for Hearing Voices Monday May 25 at 9am and 7pm (in place of Smart Talk) on WITF 89.5 & 93.3
