Iraq Vets on C-SPAN: Must Listen To Radio

I tried to convey my excitement about this series on C-SPAN but I think it is one of those things you really can't appreciate unless you were in the military. The positive attitude that these soldiers demonstrated, the lack of bitterness after incredible suffering

Unfortunately I couldn't find the female Sergeant who I heard last night washing dishes and again today on the commute home. But what I do remember was her disappointment in the media about "telling the truth" about what went on, her ambivalence about what is at state in this year's election, and so much more.

It's the kind of thing can simultaneously inspires and depresses you.
