This week on War News Radio, we dip into our archives to put together some of our favorite pieces from the past few months.

First, we take a look at the Sons of Iraq program and the question of whether its members will find a place within Iraq’s security forces. Elizabeth Threlkeld reports. Read the transcript here.

Then, a bridge that was once the site of tragedy, becomes cause for celebration in a Baghdad neighborhood. Elise Garrity reports.

And we hear how Iraqis after the fall of Saddam found their voices through graffiti, and the impact of what they had to say. Dani Noble reports.

Finally, a look at how growing up in a war zone is impacting the way children play in Iraq. Anna Shechtman reports.

These stories this week from War News Radio.
