The show we had in July of 2011 was one of our better, as it showed two sides of "leave no one behind" from two very different wars.

Especially the second half of the show, you'll shake your head a bit. History does echo, often in the same countries.

This nation has been served by those who come home, and those who never make it back.

Some have had their stories preserved and celebrated within living memory, some are almost unknown.

This weeks episode will cover both sides of our military experience.

For the first half hour our guest will be best selling author Laura Hillenbrand to talk about her latest book Unbroken; an incredible story of survival of Louie Zamperini - olympic athlete, B-24 Liberator bombardier, survivor of being adrift at sea for months and the as a POW under the Japanese.

Unbroken at the time of the airing of this show was #9 on Amazon in general, and #2 in Military History.  Laura's previous works include Seabiscuit.

Our guest for the second half of the hour will Michael R. Caputo of  The Intrepid Project - people doing all they can to bring some shipmates home.  He is here to talk about 12 Sailors who have been abandoned in a mass grave in a mass grave in Libya.
