Tomas Young’s War – Mark Wilkerson

Mark Wilkerson was my guest on the March 24, 2016 edition of Tell Somebody, just a couple of weeks ahead of the release of his new biography, Tomas Young’s War. Tomas Young was the Kansas City Iraq War veteran who died on the eve of Veterans Day, 2014, 10 ½ years after being paralyzed by a sniper’s bullet in Iraq. Tomas was featured in the must-see Ellen Spiro/Phil Donahue film Body of War which showed him dealing with his paralysis as he became an effective anti-war voice. Tomas Young’s War covers his entire life, but, perhaps most importantly, tells the story of the struggles he had between the period covered in the film and his death.

The Ambassador's Daughter-Remembering the Murders

On the December 24, 2015 edition of Tell Somebody we heard a report from Kansas Citians Alice Kitchen and Carol Coburn on the recent delegation to El Salvador marking the 35th anniversary of the murder of four church women there in 1980. One of the delegation participants was Claire White, daughter of Robert White, US ambassador to El Salvador 1980-1981, who was fired after refusing to cover up the guilt of the US-supported Salvadoran military in the murders. Alice Kitchen put me in touch with Claire White, and I reached her on the phone and recorded a conversation for the December 31, 2015 edition of Tell Somebody.
