After the Wars: 'Forever My Life is Defined by That War'

We continue a special series that aims to preserve and share the stories of American war veterans, from World War II to today. After the Wars is a multimedia documentary project that combines photographs and recordings of ten veterans. The goal is to learn how war changed their lives and what their unique experiences can tell us about the country they served. Each week this summer, we're presenting a short radio documentary of one of those veterans. Today, Angel Montes tells his story.
