Ahmed recently visited the military base at Ft. Bragg, NC. He talks to Dick Gordon about the profound ambivalence he felt about meeting troops there: how it was both difficult on one level and yet humanizing on another. Also in this episode, Matt Arbogast is a young musician in Chicago who performs under the name The Gunshy. Last year, he talked with Dick about the album he made based on love letters his grandfather wrote to his grandmother during World War Two. And, Chris Allison heard Dick's conversation with Alison Keenan about how she met her future husband, and adoptive father of her two boys, through the classifieds. Chris tells Dick a story about his own adoptive father.
