Thursday, November 11 - Veterans Day: Letters from Home & Families of the Fallen

Veterans Day:  Letters from Home & Families of the Fallen
Today is Veterans Day.  The federal holiday set aside to honor those who served our Nation’s military.  Today, we’ll talk about the history of the holiday that was established in 1919 and also how prior to the internet, generations of soldiers and families waited on mail as the only means of communication.  Author Jack London explores the history of letter writing and the importance of honoring veteran memories through letters in his new book, “French Letters: Engaged in War.”  Also in the hour, we’ll talk with local, award-winning author Joanne Steen who has launched a national campaign to draw attention to the unmet needs of a sometimes overlooked group who bear the ultimate burden and sacrifice for our country--surviving parents who have lost a military son or daughter in the line of duty.  We’ll also open our lines for your thoughts and reflections of Veterans Day.

Thursday, November 4
Contract Combatants: The Ethics of Private Military Companies
As the pressures on the modern military increase, U.S. forces have been challenged with a smaller military, and private military companies have often been hired to fill the gap. In stories ripped from today’s headlines, these companies have been both demonized with charges of fraud and abuse and heralded by others for playing an integral and necessary role in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. ODU’s Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs will explore these companies and their role in national security during a panel discussion, and on today's HearSay, we'll get an execlusive preview.

 

Guests: 
Dr. Deane-Peter Baker, U.S. Naval Academy Assistant Professor of Philosophy
J. J. Messner, Director, IPOA, the Association of the Stability Operations Industry
Dawn Roth, Professor of Sociology & Criminology, Old Dominion University
Dr. David Earnest, Associate Professor of Political Science, Department of Political Science and Geography
