A Military-Civilian Disconnect? America is still at war. You might not know that as people go about their workdays, shop at the big box retailer and spend weekends catching a ball game. A small, professional military is deployed in Afghanistan. Their families live it. For most civilians, though, it's a distant concern - out of sight, out of mind. As we approach Memorial Day, let's talk on the Sound of Ideas about the growing disconnect between those who serve and the rest of us. Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
