Veterans Chronicles is an hour-long program that tells the stories of America's greatest heroes in their own words. Featuring interviews with eyewitnesses to the great, and tragic, moments in military history. From D-Day to Iwo Jima, Khe Sanh to the "Hanoi Hilton", Baghdad to Fallujah, the liberation of Grenada to the liberation of Afghanistan; Veterans Chronicles is history told from the perspective of those who were there. Included in each show are archival recordings, which take listeners back to a time when heroes were made. The program also includes short features, including "Heroes of the Air," "World War II Chronicles," and "Vox Pop." The host of Veteran's Chronicles, Gene Pell, has spent much of the last half-century as an award winning broadcast journalist. He has been both Moscow Bureau Chief and Pentagon Correspondent for NBC News, and for twenty years was news anchor for the NBC affiliate in Boston. He is also former Director for Voice of America and President of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
