Iraq Vets Hit the Airwaves



I'm sorry a bit late in passing this on.

Please catch a rerun of last night's excellent Henry Rollins Show with guest Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and a tireless vets' advocate (times below). And get ready for another member of IAVA hanging out Monday night with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.

Details:

You've seen IAVA on CNN, MSNBC and Fox - this one should be on the lighter side. Our Director of Government Affairs, Todd Bowers, will be on the Daily Show on Comedy Central Monday night at 11pm ET / 10pm CT. Todd served two tours in Iraq as a civil affairs sergeant with the Marine Corps, and he's going to be featured in a 'segment' on counterinsurgency.

If you can't watch it then, it will be running again on Tuesday at 1am, 10am, 2pm and 8pm, ET.

And Friday, I'll be on the Henry Rollins Show at 11pm ET / 8pm PT on the IFC channel. We'll be discussing the situation in Iraq, and some of the problems faced by our troops. The show is definitely one of the edgiest on TV. Henry tells it like it is, and talks about issues that matter. I'll be appearing with fellow Iraq Vet Jason LeMieux and musical performer Bob Mould, the front man of Husker Du and Sugar. You can watch the promo video here.

If you can't catch that the first time, it will replay this Saturday 4:25am, Monday at 9am, and Tuesday at 12:30am.

Good to have more vet voices on the airwaves.
