"Blue-Eyed Boy" - A Journalist's Memoir

Robert Timberg has dedicated much of his life to telling stories -- he's an accomplished journalist and author who spent decades reporting in Washington. But in his newest book, he turns inward to share the very personal story about the events that put him on his path as a journalist: he picked up the trade after suffering horrific injuries as a young Marine in Vietnam. Kojo talks with Timberg about what he learned from his service and how his reinvention as a journalist helped to heal the mental and physical wounds he suffered.
