A Web-based video documentary project highlights the stories of troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan — and their families. Following each weekly documentary, Iraq war veteran Jan Bender, who hosts, invites veterans and other listeners to join some of the people featured in the segment in an online discussion.

Bender talks with Liane Hansen.
