Soldiers Soundtracks to War - Airs July 7
Reporter Jake Warga went to Iraq and plugged into soldier's iPods and asked them what they were listening to, why they liked the song, and what their lives were like. Their music choices form a soundtrack to the soldier's narrating their own war stories. Many had been deployed multiple times, and offered perspectives on how their (and our) roll has changed since the 2003 invasion. Over everything from "Indestructible" by hard rock's Disturbed to C&W's "Kiss My Country Ass" to Streisand's "Send In the Clowns" to one soldier singing us a gospel song, we hear their experiences serving our country -- told to the tunes in their personal mp3 players.
