C-Span: Vets Day Programming on Book TV

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs' public program, The Iraq War: A True Account by the Soldiers Who Were There, was well-attended on Thursday evening, myself at the kind invitation of author Trish Wood.
Full video now available online:

Wood appeared on a beautifully set stage with Vietnam vet Bobby Muller (who wrote the Foreword) and Iraq vet Garett Reppenhagen (who appears in the book alongside 29 other battle buddies interviewed by Wood).

ePluribus Media's fabulous Cho and I have completed our review of Wood's worthy work, What Was Asked of Us: An Oral History of the Iraq War by the Soldiers Who Fought It.

C-Span's BookTV will be broadcasting last night's Chicago Council event with Wood and vets Muller and Reppenhagen.
