Year in Review: War on the Homefront

This article is more than 11 years old.

This year the war proved deadly for members of the military with Massachusetts ties. Twenty-one Bay State soldiers died in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That is almost double the number killed in 2006. Right now, about 800 national guardsmen and women from Massachusetts are serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

WBUR's Monica Brady Myerov has a 2007 retrospective on the war on the homefront in Massachusetts this year.

This program aired on December 31, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
