A WEKU Veterans Day Special: 11-11-11

Nov 11, 2011

Veterans of America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are coming home.  Withdrawals are underway in both countries.  While the wars are winding down, their legacy will live on in America through their veterans.   Over the last ten years, an estimated two-point-three million Americans fought in those wars.  Today, we hear about their experience through the stories told by eight Kentuckians.

These eight Kentuckians now attend college and their stories were gathered by the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky.
