On Monday, Here & Now's Robin Young spoke with a young man named Caleb Stevens who walked into a Chicago hospital in January with a bullet wound from Syria.

Now, we speak with the Chicago Tribune reporters, Rosemary Sobol (@RosemarySobol1) and Patrick M. O'Connell (@pmocwriter) — who first heard about Stevens on a police scanner — about how they were able to corroborate his story of fighting with a Kurdish militia group.
