Iraq Anniversary

Posted Monday, March 19, 2007

This week, the U.S. approaches the fourth anniversary of its military involvement in Iraq. That war has claimed the lives of more than 3,000 U.S. soldiers and Marines, and 130 here in Ohio. That's taken a toll on military families. Paul Montgomery's two sons both served in the Third Regiment, 25th Marine Division, based in Brook Park. One of his sons didn't come home. "As a parent," he says, "I've felt like, why couldn't it be me? I gladly would have traded places with my son." Monday on The Sound of Ideas, we'll speak with the parents of local marines. Plus, a debate on war policy.



Vince Schneider, Marine; Paul Montgomery (military father), father of two boys, one in Naval Academy, one deceased; Paul Schroeder and Rosemary Palmer, anti-war activists and parents of fallen Marine Augie Schroeder; Wat Cluverius, ambassador at large, Cleveland Council on World Affairs; Ayad Rahim, freelance writer
