I’ve been posting info about my radio show when I think the topics will interest you. The show airs from 10:00-11:00 a.m. PST on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco. It’s a call-in show and you can listen online.
On tomorrow’s show, we’ll be talking with the mothers of four American soldiers:
Sara Rich, mother of Suzanne Swift – Suzanne was arrested for going AWOL last year. She says she was sexually harassed and abused by her commanders in Iraq and at home. She spent a year in Iraq
Nadia McCaffrey, mother of Patrick – Patrick was killed in Iraq in June 2004 – His death received national attention after Nadia invited the press to take photos and video of his flag-draped coffin returning home, which violates U.S. military policy
Carolyn Ho, mother of Ehren Watada, the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse to deploy to Iraq
Pat Soler, mother of Sgt. Kyle Soler – Kyle has been in Baghdad since October 2006 – Pat is a member of Blue Star Moms
On Wednesday, we’ll be talking with Shimon Katz, a former Israeli soldier, and Sulaiman Al Hamri, a former Palestinian combatant, about Combatants for Peace, an organization founded by Israelis and Palestinians who put down their weapons to end the cycle of violence
