Marking War Milestones

This article is more than 11 years old.

This week Radio Boston is going on location. We broadcast from Athol's Memorial Town Hall.  Residents from the town of Orange participate in the tolling of the town bell for 4,000 seconds to commemorate Americans killed in Iraq.

We're talking with veterans from north central Massachusetts about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan and what they think now that they're home.  What does the war mean for small towns?  With a Presidential Election on the horizon and economic problems bearing down on the nation have Americans lost interest in what's happening in Iraq?

This program aired on April 4, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
