Mark Thompson on his recent article, "The Other 1 Percent"
Hosts Northwest Vets for Peace interview Time Magazine investigative reporter Mark Thompson about his recent article, "The Other 1 Percent," on the increasing disconnect and distance between the military and the rest of the U.S. population.
Thompson has reported extensively from Afghanistan and Iraq, reporting on the progress of the conflicts there and the unexpected lack of armor for the U.S. military, and has written four major pieces on the true costs of the Iraq war -- an early look at the war's wounded, a study of the U.S. troops killed in a single week, the lonely vigil of an Ohio family whose son was the first American soldier in this war to be listed as missing in action, whose remains were ultimately recovered in March, 2008, and the death of a GI at the hands of Army medicine a year after he was slightly wounded in Iraq.
