In honor of Veterans Day, we talk about the families of soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan with Melissa Seligman who has written a memoir about her husband’s deployment, called The Day After He Left for Iraq, and Purdue Professor, Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth, who works with families of our troops. We’ll also call out to Rev. Charles Rush, Senior Minister at Christ Church in Summit, NJ.
