This Week On Metro Connection: In The Trenches


Welcome to "Metro Connection." I'm Rebecca Sheir. And this week as our nation honors our war veterans, we're going in the trenches. We'll meet college seniors in the Reserve Officer Training Corp, or ROTC, and hear how they're preparing for military service. We'll look at the battle for control of Virginia's general assembly and find out how the results of Tuesday's election may affect the lives of local residents. We'll get the latest in the philosophical struggle over D.C.'s public schools and we'll go into some actual trenches with the team that plants thousands of trees in the District each fall.
