This New Year’s weekend, Glen talks about what we need to do politically and economically in order for individuals and our nation to be successful again. Glen talks about some of the biggest disappointments of 2012, but then offers reasons for hope and optimism in 2013.
Frank Kravetz, a World War II combat veteran and former Prisoner of War, joined the program to talk about his experiences as a soldier, and his experiences as a German captive held at the Nuremberg Prison Camp in 1944 and 1945.
Happy New Year!
