Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley and Waterloo veteran David Greene join Ben to discuss their recent visit to the World War II battlefield at Iwo Jima, Japan. The Congressman's father Byard Braley was a veteran in the Battle of Iwo Jima and Greene returned to the island for the first time since seeing combat there in 1945. Later, former Indiana Congressman and 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton talks about U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. Hamilton's lecture at Iowa State University on March 27 is titled "American Foreign Policy after Iraq and Afghanistan".
