StoryCorps’ Military Voices Initiative provides a platform for Veterans, service members, and military families to share their stories. As part of this project, Maine Public will participate in statewide live events and virtual recording sessions in the upcoming months. We’ll discuss the opportunities to preserve and showcase military voices—and we will feature stories of and about Maine’s Veterans.

Panelists:
Hazel Diaz, former Marine; manager, StoryCorps’ Military Voices initiative
Garett Reppenhagen, former Army Specialist; executive director, Veterans For Peace

VIP callers:
Sen. Angus King, U.S. Senator; serves on the Armed Services, Intelligence, Energy and Natural resources and Veterans' Affairs committees
Travis Mills, retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant and recalibrated warrior; founder, Travis Mills Foundation
Jonathan Bratten, Maine National Guard Historian, and the U.S. Army Center of Military History's Scholar in Residence, author of To the Last Man

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
