Memorial Day and the Cost of War
Memorial Day is all about remembering those who paid the ultimate price to defend their families, their friends, their country.

This week, Leonard talks with Jeff Morris, a former US Army captain, platoon leader and Company Commander who fought in Iraq during two deployments.

He shares some of his experiences in combat, the scars left behind and his optimistic view of lessons learned in battle.
