Join “At Ease” host and bestselling author Dwight Jon Zimmerman as he welcomes a star-studded roster of guests to the June 25, 2013 edition of “At Ease” on Veterans Radio.
Historian Rick Atkinson's bestselling Liberation Trilogy tells the story of the American military's role in the liberation of Europe during World War II. The trilogy began in North Africa with An Army at Dawn, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and continued with the invasion of Sicily and the Italian campaign in The Day of Battle. This month his epic concludes with The Guns at Last Light, a sweeping account of the final year of the war in Europe. From bloody battles on the front lines to the war of words between senior commanders, The Guns at Last Light vividly and authoritatively tells the story of the Greatest Generation.
Robert Edsel’s ground-breaking bestseller, The Monuments Men, was a blockbuster story of the hunt for the world’s greatest masterpieces during and after World War II. In his new book, SAVING ITALY: The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures from the Nazis Edsel tells the heroic efforts to save the priceless cultural patrimony of Italy from looting by the enemy and destruction by both the Germans and the Allies. Greatest Generation author and journalist Tom Brokaw called SAVING ITALY “an astonishing account.”
Lee Woodruff is a critically-acclaimed bestselling author, and wife of ABC journalist Robert “Bob” Woodruff. In January 2006, Woodruff and his cameraman Doug Vogt were seriously injured by an IED in Iraq. That experience, and Bob’s long recovery inspired them to establish the Bob Woodruff Foundation that provides resources and support to injured service members, veterans and their families. Lee will be talking about the event that changed their lives and their work with the foundation.

"The show no sooner ended when my son phoned me and said: 'Dad, I learned a lot about you today during your Veterans Radio interview. I just want to say thank you for what you did over there and thank you for being my father." An email sent from a guest on Veterans Radio
Veterans Radio is dedicated to all the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States of America. Our mission is to see that the world appreciates what extraordinary things ordinary people have done to gain and preserve the freedom we assume everyone enjoys – and the ultimate price that is often paid.
Veterans Radio will include our listener's stories and experiences, not only while in the service, but afterwards as well. Interviews with guest speakers and authors will be a weekly feature. The content of the programs on Veterans Radio will ultimately be determined by our listeners.
Veterans Radio feels it is time for our communities to know who among their neighbors was willing to pay the ultimate price to preserve and protect their basic freedoms. Veterans Radio will act as an advocate for veteran's issues. Politics has no place in determining what is fair for America's veterans. Veterans Radio just wants our politicians to keep their promises. We encourage our listeners to get involved in the political process and to make our voices heard.
If you have any suggestions for topics or music you would like to hear, please contact us.
