We hear two dispatches from U.S. Military Camp Buehring. Chaplain Matt Stewart describes a wall of photographs of the fallen, which he visits on Memorial Day to look for soldiers who have died. Also: tank mechanic Sgt. Roberto Abelardo witnessed the Twin Towers falling on 9-11 and decided to enlist.
Host Dick Gordon speaks with Carlos Warner, an attorney for 11 detainees in Guantánamo Bay. He says as many as 130 have been on hunger strike since February, and they want the world to know their story.
Ahmed Fadaam, the interpreter who helped host Dick Gordon report in Baghdad after the U.S. invasion in 2003, filed reports for The Story in a series called “Ahmed’s Diary.” He made these illustrations based on those reports.
