WAMU 88.5 : Metro Connection

This Week On Metro Connection: Remembering & Forgetting

Play associated audio

Days after our national day of remembrance, we bring you a show about "Remembering and Forgetting." We'll head to Arlington National Cemetery to meet a bugler who honors the lives of those lost in the line of duty. We'll go digging for artifacts with a man on a mission to remember our region's earliest inhabitants. And we'll go inside the painstaking work of saving pieces of Georgetown's stony history.
