One-Year Anniversary Invasion Of Iraq

On March 19, 2003, President Bush gave the final orders to invade Iraq. One year later, we reflect on what U.S. troops experienced that day, what they've been through since and how they feel now. Also, how has the war shaped politics and culture in the region? Join NPR's Lynn Neary to talk about the war in Iraq — one year later.
