What are we, if we are not our memories and the stories we share? Bob Collins gives us the story behind the picture of a war widow and her family; a picture he has carried with him on and off for 18 years.
Over Memorial Weekend, Collins also presents stories about those who served (no matter what capacity) and have died:
* Bonnie Brodie Hassebroek, an Iowan woman, joined the Women's Army Corps.
* PTSD is a story about how one woman lost two loves, one to war and one to post traumatic stress disorder.
* "I know the war changed him, but I only heard a few stories." Learn about Holly Cairn's grandfather, Glenn Knoblauch.
You're still welcome to send Bob Collins stories about those people who served and changed your life.
