1/7/12 Operation Vengeance was carried out to kill Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto Commander of the Combined Fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The specific mission of the U.S. aircraft to kill Yamamoto was based on intelligence gathered after breaking the Japanese secret code. The death of Yamamoto was considered a huge blow to Japanese morale and considered the equivalent of a major battle defeat. Join Bob Gould as he interviews Dr. Rebecca Grant, President of IRIS Independent Research, focusing on joint doctrine, airpower history and defense strategy.
1/14/12 Encore Presentation: Ethics and Morality in War. A replay of one of our most requested programs from the past. First aired on 20 October 2007. What are ethics? What is morality? How can one behave in a moral manner? These are among the most difficult and most interesting questions that face people of any age. What defines a “Warrior” today? We explore these important questions with our guest, Shannon E. French, Assoc. Prof. Associate Chair, Department of Leadership, Ethics, and Law at the United States Naval Academy and author of The Code of the Warrior: Exploring Warrior Values Past and Present. Join Veterans Radio’s Bob Gould and Colonel Christine Cook as they look back on this program. We lost the archive for this program.
