Veterans Chronicles

Veterans Chronicles is an hour-long program that tells the stories of America's greatest heroes in their own words.

Included in each show are archival recordings, which take listeners back to a time when heroes were made. The program also includes short features, including "Heroes of the Air," "World War II Chronicles," and "Vox Pop."
