In the Name of Service
This week on War News Radio, we hear the voices of U.S. forces and the individual stories of the people serving in Iraq.
First, a large part of the U.S. army is made up of non-citizen soldiers. Is it the fast road to citizenship that inspires non-citizens to enlist, or is it patriotism? Listen now to Hansi Lo Wang and Aaron Schwartz’s report.
And, for students at the U.S. service academies, a diploma can be a ticket to Iraq. We hear from students at Annapolis and Westpoint about preparing for war. Listen now to Sarah Manion’s report.
Then, U.S. service members arenâ€™t the only American forces in Iraq. Thousands of private military contractors are performing jobs once reserved for enlisted forces. But, are they doing a good job? Listen now to Alex Marlowe Ginsberg’s report.
These stories, plus the weekâ€™s news, from War News Radio.
