9/3/10: War

Salt Lake City, Utah – You've heard the saying "war is hell," but the journalist Sebastian Junger says that's not all it is. Junger spent over a year on the ground with American soldiers in Afghanistan and he learned that among these men, war is also about relationships, trust and honor. His book is called "War." Friday, our conversation with Junger about the harsh reality of combat. (Rebroadcast)

  • Sebastian Junger's documentary "Restrepo" opens Friday night at the Broadway Centre Cinemas in Salt Lake City. Following Friday's 7:05 showing, there will be a Q&A with former brigade medic Jakob Melton. Melton will also introduce the 9:30 show. For details, visit the Salt Lake Film Society on-line.
