    in Military

    Listen LIVE or Later 24/7 - 94-year-old WWII veteran Leon Cooper is returning to the South Pacific to film a sequel to the award-winning documentaries, “Return to Tarawa: The Leon Cooper Story”, and “Until They Are Home”, by Vanilla Fire Productions. Mr. Cooper has been on a personal mission for a decade to shine a light on the 88,000 MIAs from WWII that have never made it back from the war. Mr Cooper is asking everybody to contact Senators Boxer and Feinstein and Congressman Waxman to ask our Ambassador to the Phillipines to help Leon Cooper when he is in the Phillipines for the first two weeks of June 2014. I am shocked that the Ambassador has not responded. We need to help change that. Remember the words "Never Leave a Man Behind"?  That is not the case here and we as Americans need to help change this. Please Listen to this program and then Share this Program with everybody you can.
