Iraq/Afghanistan Winter Soldier Hearings

March 14, 2008

All regular programming on KBOO is pre-empted from 6AM to 4PM today (Friday the 14th) in order to carry the Iraq/Afghanistan Winter Soldier hearings, currently underway.

Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan will feature testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground.

The four-day event will bring together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan – and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, there will be panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists to give context to the testimony. These panels will cover everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans’ health benefits and support.

Tune in at 90.7 FM or listen on line here.
