After the Wars: Theodore Peters

This is the first installment in WBEZ's new series, "After the Wars," in which we'll be talking with American war veterans. Theodore Peters found out he was being drafted for war before he graduated from high school. Peters was one of the first black Americans to enter the U.S. Marine Corps, and he went on to serve in World War II.
