Brian Sparks’ platoon was sent to Iraq in 2005
They saw a lot of “stuff” in Iraq, and were exposed to a lot of killing and trauma. Now Brian is asking the soldiers he went to war with to share their stories, and the result will be a series of radio stories featuring first-hand accounts of the war. The people he has interviewed to date have been candid about their experiences in Iraq, and about their lives after the war. Americans are beginning to write the history of our current wars now, and Brian hopes to add the voices of the people who were there, who saw what happened, and who have been forever changed by this course of history.
