Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes members of the band “In Remembrance”. The band performed at the 2010 National Epilepsy Walk in Washington, D.C. as Nick Harris, the band’s original drummer is living with epilepsy. Through music, the band seeks to remind its audience that fallen soldiers are our country’s heroes and should never be forgotten. This is a message inspired by the death of Capt. Brian S. Letendre (the older brother of lead singer Nick Letendre), who lost his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom on May 3, 2006.
