We'll learn about a project coming to Reno called "Combat Paper," where veterans are taking their old uniforms, processing them, turning that fabric into paper, and then using it to create art. We'll learn how the project is assisting veterans, their families and the community in reconciling and sharing their personal experiences about war. Our guests are co-founder Drew Cameron and Jill Berryman, President of the Nevada Alliance for Arts Education.

Plus we'll hear the poetry of writer and Iraq war veteran Brian Turner.
