For The Fallen

Green Beret and poet, Maj. 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. 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.
