Memorial Day is coming up on Monday. Over the last few years, we’ve spoken with veterans to see who they’re remembering. Last year we spoke to veteran Joe Sturm about three men from his battalion who were killed in Afghanistan. But Joe is finding this Memorial Day more difficult than most, as he reflects on the ten years since the war began. Also with us is Roman Baca, an Iraq War veteran and the artistic director of Exit 12 Dance Company which stages "The Homecoming," a ballet about the Iraq War, on the Intrepid military ship this weekend in honor of Memorial Day.

Twenty one institutions nationwide are interested in landing one of the orbiters, and Manhattan's Intrepid, Sea, Air & Space Museum is one of them.
