Memorial Day 2009

Posted at 6:45 AM on May 25, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

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.
