New Hampshire Veterans - On The Iraq War’s Tenth Anniversary
In March of 2003, the U.S. began air strikes in what officials said would be a short war. Eight years later, our forces pulled out with a death toll of more than 4000 Americans and 100,000 Iraqis. We’ll talk with Granite Staters who served in Iraq, what they experienced and their reflections a decade later.
