Segment A: Local Impact of New Defense Strategy

A new national defense strategy was outlined last week by the Obama administration. During our first segment, we’ll talk with local military reporters about the strategy’s local impact, which promises a growth for many Navy communities, but could also bring about a homeport change for a Norfolk-based air craft carrier.

Segment B:China’s Influence

Scheduled Guests:

Admiral Joseph W. Prueher, former Ambassador to the People's Republic of China

A Fresh Start: Re-Entry From Prison

Every year, more than 10,000 Virginia prisoners complete their sentences and return to their communities, often without prospects for a job, housing or addiction help.

On today’s show, we’ll examine the challenges around re-entry from prison and some new programs that help those incarcerated gain the skills they need to build a new life.
