Memorial day special at 3 PM

For Memorial Day, we’ll hear “For the Fallen” from the Hearing Voices radio program. Hear the voices of veterans remembering their comrades. That’s today at 3 PM.

Green Beret and poet, Major Robert Schaefer, US Army, hosts. The show talks 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."

Hear interviews from StoryCorps, an essay from This I Believe, and the sounds of a Military Honor Guard, recorded by Charles Lane. And we’ll attend the daily "Last Post" ceremony by Belgian veterans honoring the WWI British soldiers who died defending a small town in western Belgium.

That’s today at 3 PM on KRTS Marfa.
