In his latest work, author Jim Hasse shares a selection of connected war stories featuring his fictional alter ego “Jay Boone Hanson.”

These stories based on real experiences of a veteran provide an unflinching portrait of life before, during, and after wartime.

Warriors and Friends: Through the Eyes of His Alter-Ego, a Green Beret Unlocks Forbidden Memories of Vietnam on His Path to Healing, takes you inside the mind of a man who’s experienced the horrors of war and lived to tell the tales.

 

Also on today's show, a poem by George Bilgere titled “Taking out the Trash” read by Anthony Peyton Porter.
