Good afternoon. I'm Rob Lorei. It's Veteran's Day and today we have two interviews with former members of the US military.

First up retired Tampa Congressman Sam Gibbons who was a young paratrooper during D-Day in WWII.

Later we'll hear from Dwight Lawton of St. Petersburg. Lawton served on a US Navy destroyer in the early 1950's reaching the rank of lieutenant. For many years he's been active in peace and social justice causes- including as a leader with the group Veterans for Peace.
