Salt Lake City, UT – The journalist Jim Sheeler's new book is about how the country honors those killed at war, and it all begins with a knock at the door. The book is a collection of powerful and touching stories of the families that have to answer the door and cope with the news. It's also a profile of one of the men charged with that difficult mission called "casualty notification." Jim Sheeler joined us earlier this year to talk about the true costs of war. (Rebroadcast)
