In hour two of Here & Now's April 30, 2018 full broadcast, the Pentagon is briefing the families of the four soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger last October. We speak with an analyst about the U.S. military mission in Africa. Also, parents Stephen and Carol Cohen had nothing but pride for their son Michael, who took his own life last December. The Cohens decided to include Michael's cause of death in the obituary they published in The Boston Globe, in hopes of promoting dialogue and removing the stigma of mental illness. And, canine behavior consultant Kim Brophey puts forth her system for understanding the factors that shape a dog's behavior. She discusses her book "Meet Your Dog."
