Military

 

Memorial Day was intended as a time for honoring our nation's war dead. Today, it's best known as the unofficial start of summer. On this week's show, we'll discuss the holiday and how we can best honor those who've served and given their all.

How are military veterans from Kentucky faring?  What Services are available to them and how are we failing them?  How have public perceptions of veterans shifted from one armed conflict to another?  These are some of the questions we'll pursue and that we're inviting you to answer.

It's not every day you go to a concert featuring musicians who have been recently risking their lives on the battlefield. Such is the life of members of the pipes and drums of the Black Watch of the community of Fife in Scotland.
