Day 177 - Write Ring Radio

Radio talk show producer Robin Amer has requested family members of the 150th go to Radio Open Source web site to post comments and tell stories about their experiences for a program scheduled to air Monday, July 18.

Here are some things she's interested to know:
* What are our soldiers are doing (that we can talk about)?
* What are we doing while they are gone?

* What are the hardest things to deal with?
* What are our hopes and fears for the future?

Sergeant Kelly has already been featured on a previous broadcast, but Robin would also like to hear from other soldiers of the 150th.

Sounds like a good weekend project.

Ready? Write.
