Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor
I guess because of my recent immersion in the military and the attention on veterans over these last few days, today I'd like you to read someone else's work.
While in Kabul, I had dinner with David Ignatius of the Washington Post, and this piece was brought to my attention too late yesterday to post it here, but he gets it. He has spent a lot of time around the military, and this piece he wrote spoke to the details I've always noticed when around them. So...please read and enjoy. It's important.
We hope you can join us tonight.
